What was the highlight or most memorable moment of your tour?

I have done several walking holidays in Spain and this was the best of them all. Although fairly demanding in parts the walks were done in stunning scenery with fantastic views.

What was the highlight or most memorable moment of your tour?

In February, a complete sensory experience. The smells of the orange and lemon blossoms, lavender and other beautiful flowers and the pine forests. The walks are demanding but give so much back, great height, fabulous views and the stories of how they feature in the history and development of the island. Friendly people, good local food.

What Was The Highlight Or Most Memorable Moment Of Your Tour

The amazing view of the rock spires and Tenerife from the Nublo peak. Impromptu bar billiards challenge and group comeraderie.

Tour Leader Name

Bert Palmen

How Was Your Explore Tour Leader

The most knowledgeable, relaxed, friendly, and thoughtful leader you could ever hope to meet. Provided flexibility on the walks to those who needed their own space at times and for different paces.

What Tips Would You Give To Someone Else Booking This Tour

Sit in the front of the bus if you are not good in coaches as were a few longish coach rides on very tight turns with very steep drop aways up and over the mountain passes!

Do You Have Anything Else To Add

This was a very untouristy central location and trip which was great. The hotel was fine but provides a very basic range of service.

What Tips Would You Give To Someone Else Booking This Tour

"Was pleasantly surprised by the cost of food and drink. Because you're staying a non touristy area the prices were very reasonable. Any you must try the local honey rum!"

What was the highlight or most memorable moment of your tour?

"This is a super holiday and the remote mountainous terrain which we enjoyed  was a big surprise on what is basically a more conventional holiday destination. I have driven around the entire Island many years ago and failed to grasp the remoteness of the inner reaches which are often as rich in colour as they are spectacular in scenery."

Fantastic walking - far exceeded expectations!  Very varied walks and beautiful scenery. The optional 3 walks midweek are a must - real highlight of the week. Do go on the tomato-growers visit, if offered (I didn't, but regretted it!) and do starve yourself for the amazing meal on the last evening at the cactus garden (astonishing value and out-of-this-world food!!) Lovely little hotel - basic but friendly and clean. Great breakfasts (except for the coffee - beware!!!).   Highly recommended - especially in Feb, when I went, as the climate was perfect for walking and it was great to get away from winter here!  (Very chilly in the evenings though!)
