We had a wonderful tour with John, who is very knowledge about all elements of Tenerife (history, architecture, geology environment, etc.). He is very engaging and a comfortable person to be with for six hours of touring. And a very good driver! A highlight was a wonderful restaurant ("Los Pinos" in Garachico) that he selected for lunch - we had a fabulous goat stew, octopus with green mojo, and wrinkled potatoes. A truly memorable day!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for such a lovely review. Reading it makes me feel very lucky to have had such super guests but I now feel terribly hungry! I hope you can make it this way again one day....and we'll have some more octopus!

John was a wonderful guide showing us Northwest Tenerife. He took us to the kind of places we had expressed an interest in and got to see places we would never have found on our own. At lunch John guided us through menu choices that were new to us and we will seek out in the future. His deep knowledge of the island, it's peoples and history shone through.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: What a lovely review! Thank you very much indeed. But, as I told you on the day, my choices from the menu were very selfish (all things I like!). I also had a wonderful day out with you and hope you come this way again soon. All the best, John.

Today's tour with John was the highlight of my visit to Tenerife. He is not only a very knowledgeable guide, but also a super friendly, nice person. It was great fun and a very interesting tour with an experienced insider.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much indeed for posting your generous review. However, it's always fun to take a stroll in the hills with a friend. I look forward to our next hike and hope you can make it this way again before too long. All the best.

Had a wonderful tour with John. He was on-time, friendly, spoke English well and was a good driver. He was flexible and took us where we wanted to go and seems very interested in us seeing all we could in a short time. He was great with the kids and took us to see what we wanted while keeping the kids interested as well. Great restaurant pick too! Wouldn't hesitate to book again.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your lovely review. I really appreciate your taking the time. I hope you come this way again one day, even if I might try to persuade the youngest member of the family to sample grilled octopus again. All the best, John.

We have been visiting Tenerife regularly for over 20 years, and taken many tours. But this was by far the best we have experienced. John Reid was very considerate (my wife has limited mobility), knowledgeable and interesting. As well as showing us the sights he told us about the history of Tenerife and the Canary Islands. For lunch he showed us a delightful and authentic rural restaurant where the food was excellent and good value - somewhere we would have never found by ourselves. Highly recommended.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your kind review. It was a pleasure to have your company throughout the day and I'm so glad we were able to do a little extra on the way. One day, perhaps on your next visit to the cliffs of the giants, you will have to catch me off duty and I'm sure we'll put the world in order! All the best!

We had a wonderful day. John is a really nice person who knows so much about Tenerife. We had our two teenagers with us and they stayed engaged the whole time and enjoyed the tour. We saw lots of amazing scenery and some truly beautiful historic towns.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: How very kind of you to review our tour. It was a real pleasure to have your company. In fact my day's work felt more like a day out with a bunch of friends, right from the start. Thank you again!
