“Pico del Teide”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2012

The highest point of Spain and of the islands in Atlantic. Really worth getting there, cause the 360 view is just breathtaking, if it's not cloudy. The smell of sulphur and decreased concentration of oxygen is gonna lead You all the way up, from the cable car top stop at ~3400 till the peak. Cable car is quite expensive, but it's worth the pay for the amusement You are to get (regular tourist's point of view).
P.S. don't forget the permission from local authorities
P.P.S. if You are planing to climbing up and take the cable car downwards, make sure You got cash, there is no credit card service up top, but there is free wi-fi, so You can video skype to your mamma xee

“Fantastic view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2012

This was a trip we had always meant to do but somehow never got around to doing. This time we put that right and booked the full day excursion, superb day out. It started with a precarious bus trip winding our way to the base of Teide. That was an experience in its self, awesome driver as well. The view from the base of the volcano was absolutely fantastic although we didn't take the cable car to the top as it was very cold up there and we hadn't taken warm clothing. Will go to the top next time for sure. An absolute must-do when in Tenerife.

“Breath taking Views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2012 via mobile

We took a 4 wheel drive jeep from our cruise ship along twisty turning roads to the top of mount El Tiede. Views views and views. Did not have time to do the cable car. This is a must see in Tenerife

“What a sureal experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2012

Definatly a trip that needs to be made when visiting Tenerife.you will be best hireling a car as we did.
The drive up is magnificent,when you finally get to the top the journey has not finished.you then take the cable car to the top,you are up above the clouds words cannot describe the experience.
When yo get to the top,you can then if you fill fit enough would up to a even higher height.this we declined to do as the air is very different up there.
A must for anyone don't miss it.
