review 15 Dec 2017

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Sunday along the edge of the crater

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

To check which hotel the group will be accomodated in. To find that we were put up in a huge hotel like Taburente was I am afraid a disapointment in an otherwise excellent trip.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Benefitted local people yes reduced environmental impact no supported conservation maybe a little.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Excellent except that the hotel. Taburente was a big disappointment and therefore the information about the trip was misleading. Excellent guide, excellent hiking, very good dinners and the hotel in Berlovento was very nice. A group size of max 12 people would be preferable but we were a nice group that went well together so no problems.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

The visit to the top of the island - Los Muchachos.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Get fit beforehand as some walks are very upwardly steep.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Definitely. We ate locally for all the meals and only used one bus given that it was a walking holiday.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Excellent. Our guide was just the best. Apart from being very organised, knowledgeable and friendly he was very caring and efficient. Sadly my husband was very ill all week so he arranged visits to both a physio and a doctor, and got the hotels sorted in advance to let my husband have our room early so he could go to bed.
