This is the must see. So many craters and lava that we saw, Juan Carlos, was very good tour manager. He was so funny, friendly and very knowledgeable about everything from flowers to formation of rock.

The tour starts with a drive up through the clouds to a scenic overlook of the island. You make a quick stop for coffee and snack; I recommend the local sweet coffee shot with liquor (I don't recall the name but the guide should be able to tell you). The stop in the little town was the highlight for me. We had free time and choose to have tapas at a local restaurant but you could walk the city or tour the local gardens or Balcony house. Great experience. Read Less

It would have been excellent but the original road we went on to get to the top of the mountain was closed so we had to go another way which meant we had little free time at all.

It was cloudy when we went to the top of the mountain so viwes were obstructed--would have been better to have gone there first thing and reversed the order of the day.

Long day walking after the Rocas of Garcia but it was a good excursion and they had snow the previous week so we got to see people bring their kids up to play in the snow.

This was a van tour arranged by a CC member. Wonderful tour of volcanoes, good commentary. It was colder than expected, so bring a jacket. This is a very scenic area to be sure to get out of town and see.

Tenerife We went on the ship's 'Best of Tenerife - Lava and Fire' all day tour costing $139 (£92.70). We spent the morning driving to and from the Mount Teide national park, with photograph stops for the lava terrain and views of Mount Teide and a tea/coffee break at a restuarant in the park (included in the price). We would have liked to have visited Mount Teide but was told that the wait for a cable car to take us to the top would be hours, if not the rest of the day. On the way to and back our guide was very keen to tell us all about Tenerife's ecosystem to the point that you had the impression that you had heard the same thing several times. For lunch we stopped at a very good hotel restaurant at Puerto de la Cruz (included in the price) where we had a choice of several starters, mains and desserts washed down by a decent bottle of white or red wine and a bottle of water (between 2). After lunch, there was time to walk on the black sandy beach which was just round the corner from the hotel. the next stop was the nearby village of La Orotava where we visited the church and La Casa de los Balconies (the House of the Balconies) where you can buy lace and local produce such as wine, cheese, etc, etc. On the way back to the ship we stopped at the new opera house near the docks to take some photographs. We would have liked to have seen more of the coastal resorts or Santa Cruz which would have been possible if the ship had spent more time in Tenerife but it left at 6 pm to spend the night anchored somewhere off Lanzarote. We will be going back there to have a more indepth tour round including taking the cable car up to Mount Teide. Read Less
