What an amazing day ! I couldn't imagine the beauty of Los Gigantes and the beautiful and picturesque town of Masca, a small place buried among the Teno mountains. You feel as you are going back in time. John, my tour guide is amazing! The details that he provides on the history of the place are unbelievable. He introduced me to people that were born there and still remain at Masca and it was a fantastic experience. Then we visited Garachico and the famous Dragon tree . I definitely recommend this tour !

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much indeed for this review. I'm so glad you enjoyed Masca, even in the dry heat of the summer. Canary island people have a habit of making us welcome and so I was pleased you could meet our friends in Masca. I hope you have enjoyed the rest of your time on the island and come back this way again some day. All the best!

Had a change of tour per John's recommendation. We drove up through the clouds to Mt. Teide, currently a sleeping volcano. Amazing mix of terrain from coast to volcano and across the spine of the island and down the other side. We sampled 3 typical Canary Island dishes for lunch and a local wine. Have a new favorite coffee, barraquito. John is knowledgeable, flexible with a great love of his island home. When we return to Tenerife; another day with John will be on our bucket list!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Susan, Thank you very much for taking the trouble to rate our tour. It makes a big difference to my job when I know that you have enjoyed a tour with me. It was fun sharing the day with you both and I hope you come this way again one day. Please look me up. Maybe, by then, I might have discovered some volcanic Vodka! All the best, John

John was very professional, arrived on time, vehicle as clean and comfortable. His commentary was interesting and engaging, he offered to customise the tour if we wished. His knowledge was outstanding, covering Geology, plant and animal life and history of the beautiful island. John took us to a local out of the way restaurant to try local foods which was exactly what we wanted. In a nutshell we had a fantastic day with John, it was like spending the day with a friend. Highly recommended.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It is very good of you to have taken the trouble to write a review. Comments like yours make this occupation of mine all the more enjoyable and worthwhile. I too feel that I have made new friends and I hope to see you this way again one day. Maybe we can enjoy some more "chocos" at a "guachiche"! All the best.

Knowledgeable, courteous, and fun guide. Excellent driver on the curvy roads. Well-kept and comfortable vehicle. I highly recommend John and the Forgotten Village tour.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for taking the time to comment on your tour with me in Tenerife. Having met me I'm sure you realise I really do appreciate it, but you all made it so easy going for me. Please come back one day. All the best, John

John was an excellent guide. He showed us this beautiful Island. He also took us to a great restaurant and helped us to order and explained the local dishes.
