I found One Day in Tenerife via TripAdvisor after looking for something different from the hotel pool/beach for a day of our holiday and a way to learn more about the island of Tenerife. An email to Felix resulted in a prompt reply. Several emails later and our tailored trip up El Tiede and surrounding area was planned.
Felix was waiting outside our hotel at the agreed time of 8am, and has happy to wait a few extra minutes for the rest of my family to present themselves after breakfast. We set off for Tiede and Felix was keen to explain the many different aspects and history of the areas through which we traveled as well as the island itself of which he is clearly proud.
We arrived at the Tiede cable car before the morning rush (as advised by Felix) and Felix obtained the tickets which he had pre-booked to help avoid any delay. We chose to ascend Tiede without Felix and were happy of the advice to arrive early, as we could enjoy the walk and views at the top in relative isolation.
After returning to the base of the cable car, which was now rather busy, Felix took us to visit numerous other areas of the national park including views of the north of the island and different geological areas, all whilst continuing his narration and demonstrating his passion for the island. We choose not to include lunch as we had a large celebration meal the evening before but I'm sure it would have been wonderful. Felix took a number of photos throughout the day and was happy to supply us with copies on our return to the UK.
I'd have no hesitation in recommending Felix and One Day in Tenerife to others who wish to explore the island.
