Description

This excursion gives you the opportunity to feel the essence of Tenerife, all in one day.

Once the pick-up is finished, you will leave the hotel zone behind, heading to the town called Villa de Candelaria. There you can visit its basilica, inside which is the Virgin of Candelaria, who is the patron saint of the Canary Islands. You will also be surprised by the imposing bronze statues that commemorate the ancient menceyes (Guanche kings) of Tenerife, and constitute a national monument.

We will continue the route to La Laguna, the first city founded in Tenerife after its conquest. This historic jewel was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1999. Here we will walk its picturesque streets that overflow with history and culture.

The tour continues to the town of Villa de La Orotava in the north of the island, where you will take a walking tour of the historic artistic old town.  Its streets, full of history and beauty, will take you to La Casa de Los Balcones, one of the most characteristic buildings of La Orotava, which houses an embroidery and costumes centre of the Canary Islands.

We will continue with the visit to Garachico, a seaside town that was partially destroyed by a volcanic eruption in 1706 and later rebuilt. It has a rich architectural heritage from the 16th and 17th centuries, very well preserved, which is why its historic centre was declared a Site of Cultural Interest in 1994. It also was included in 2021 in the list of the MOST BEAUTIFUL TOWNS IN SPAIN.

You will have free time to have your lunch. Why not enjoy some Canarian cuisine by trying one of the menus that we recommend in the restaurants of the Ycoden Daute Isora area.

On the way back to the south, we will pass through Teno Rural Park to visit the picturesque Hamlet of Masca. It offers one of the most beautiful landscapes in Tenerife where nature meets some of the best examples of traditional architecture in the Canary Islands.

There is a change to the order in the itinerary for the Island Tour & Masca that departs from Puerto de La Cruz. The new order of places visited will be:
La Orotava, La Laguna, Candelaria, El Médano, Masca and Garachico.

  • EXCURSION TO MASCA

    STEFFI: 24/03/2022

    An interesting trip was marred by the bus driver taking the curves too fast. The dutch guide was helpful and considerate.

  • EXCELLENT TOUR

    MICHAEL LITTLE: 15/03/2022

    Although we took a similar tour in 2017 with the same operator, we thoroughly enjoyed this revised Island Tour albeit that the weather was not very kind to us. The tour guide, Ponso, was very informative and knew his stuff. The coach driver did a magnificent job. A little bit od advice to those not taking the arranged lunch at Garachico, do not go to the round cafe in the square. The food is unsavoury and the beers are a rip off at 3.50 euros. It was a waste of money. However, we would recommend this tour to all.

  • LOVELY DAY TRIP

    ROSEMARY PAYNE : 28/11/2019

    Early pick up without breakfast and not allowed to eat on the coach. Nearly 2 hours to do all the pick ups but once the tour commenced it was very good and the guide very informative. A bit annoying listening to the commentary in 3 languages but hey ho it was cheaper than Tui. Lunch at recommended Carmen restaurant very good value even though we felt a bit rushed. Could have done with at least 2 hrs for lunch stop. Driver professional and excellent, felt safe even on the mountain roads.

  • ESSENCIAL

    TELMA OLIVEIRA : 28/08/2018

    Uma excursão a volta da ilha vendo o essencial que a mesma nos pode oferecer. Posso mesmo dizer que o norte tem algumas semelhanças com a ilha da Madeira. No geral valeu a pena. Obrigada a nossa guia Chantale.
