I think you will find the only day trips are to La Gomera, the others are too far so generally need an overnight stay. I would also recommend Tenerife Sunshine, (see link above)

We visited La Gomera last July through Tenerife Sunshine which cost approx 50 euros each.. Enjoyed the tour which has lunch included. We were picked up first at approx 7.00 am (from Callao Salvaje) and got back to the same drop-off point approx 7.00pm, so a long day. My only issue was that we were the only Brits on the coach (90% were Russian and the only other three English speaking passengers were Romanian) which meant that the guide's commentary was initially in Russian and by the time she gave the English version we had passed the spot she was describing! Other than that it was fine.

We did the La Gomera trip last year. Cost was around €50. Very early pickup from outside the Best Tenerife - about 6.30. Back sometime after 7. Long day. Tourists about 50/50 English/Russian speakers. Interesting trip. We hadnt realised how cold it would be and didnt take jackets - BIG mistake.

La Gomera.

Very early start and long day.

We had rain rain and more rain, up the mountain.

The meal was nice we also stopped off at a so called cafe and toilets which had no running water to wash your hands,it was freezing cold and everyone on our coach couldnt wait to get back to there hotel.

The day we went on our trip was the hottest day back in PLA we had, had during our week holiday.

Last Monday (24/02/2014) we went on the coach trip to La Gomera from Costa del Silencio, having booked through Tenerife Sunshine at €59 each. Later we saw the trip advertised at one of the sea-front travel shops at Playa de las Vistas (Los Cristianos) for €53. If you go, do take warm clothes - it is very cool in the mountains. I wore long trousers, a pullover and outdoor coat all the time. It is indeed a whole day - allow 12 hours from boarding the coach until getting off at the end. We enjoyed the trip very much.
