Date: Nov 23/18

A very nice tour with John around the island. The day was rainy but John adjusted well and we had substitutes for sites that were closed due to the bad weather. John drove us to the usual highlights but the easy nature of travelling with him and the large number of stories and details about island life set the tour apart. We also had lunch in a local place that made their own wine. Highly recommended for local insights.

Date: Oct 28/18

John was an excellent tour guide who always kept us well informed before the the start of tour to Mount Teide about weather conditions which were likely to change our itinerary and most importantly coming up with alternative plans to suit our requirements. He is extremely knowledgeable about Tenerife and shared his experience and information in a calm and humorous way. He wanted us to have the best possible experience on our tour and through his guiding this was more than achieved. Strongly recommended!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your generous review. My job was made much easier by you all. I'm only sorry the weather did prevent us keeping to the prime objective, but I hope you will join me for that on another occasion. All the best!

A fantastic tour. John was a charming and knowledgable guide who entertained all of our family, across three generations, for the entire day. I would thoroughly recommend him. My children voted his tour the best part of their holiday, even ahead of the swimming pool and breakfast buffet, high praise indeed! Thank you John.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Not at all! Thank YOU! You all made my day's work much more fun. I can't believe your children prefered it to the swimming pool. Must have been raining! Please look me up if you come this way again and I'll take the younger ones to swim in a volcanic rock pool instead! All the best.

John was an awesome guide and took us to great places that we wouldn't have seen without him. Great lunch location and he helped us select unique local food. Great information on the national park and all other locations. We enjoyed this tour very much!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I very much appreciate your kind review. It makes a great difference to know that you enjoyed the day just as much as I, especially as that is always my aim....to have a great day out and also share knowledge and experiences as best I can. I look forward to seeing you this way on another occasion!

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!

John is one of the best tour guides, if not the best, that I've ever met. His vehicle was immaculate. John is friendly, knowledgeable, accommodating and his background and personal approach made for a very entertaining day. The trail itself had spectacular views. You will have a great day with John. If we return to Tenerife, we will hire him again.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: How very kind of you! But you did make it very easy for me. Right from the start you made me feel as if I was an old friend just showing you around the island. I'm so pleased my personal approach somehow overcame the dense cloud which prevented you seeing even more spectactular scenery. I look forward to your coming this way again one day. All the best to you all, John

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!

Great tour. We knew we were getting the volcano but there were some stops along the way that made the tour even more interesting. Then we had a great lunch on the way back from the volcano which was spectacular. The volcano was cool but some of the Little things that John added made the tour fantastic.

John was a terrific guide. He coped very well when one member of our party could not complete the climb and coaxed the rest of us to the top of Teide. His knowledge of both the geology and history of Tenerife was outstanding. Our communication with John was very good, both before and during the tour. He also took good pictures of us on the summit. Tenerife is a marvelous place to visit. I wish we could have stayed longer and taken more tours with John!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your review. It is always a pleasure to spend the day with adventurous travellers! I hope you find your way this way again. The Tajinastes (Echium wildpretii or tower of jewels plant) are in full bloom now and the rather desolate, volcanic landscape you climbed around Mt Teide is alive with colour and life. All the best, John

Absolutely amazing tour and the guide! My girlfriend and I had a very limited time in Tenerife and we wanted to see and experience as much as possible that can be fit in one day. John picked an appropriate tour for us and took us on an absolutely breathtaking journey through the island. Though it's impossible of course to fully experience something like Tenerife just in one day, we definitely got a taste of what this beautiful place is about. Unforgettable experience! Thank you

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for publishing your review. Kind words which I appreciate very much. But you were both a joy to be with and I hope to see you 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.

We had a wonderful, day-long excursion with John. We were fortunate to have a full day in Tenerife, and our tour proceeded with a leisurely pace. There was time to create many photographic memories, and we also enjoyed a terrific lunch at a hilltop restaurant. John is a superb guide who has spent many years living in The Canary Islands. Only with a private tour, conducted by a "local", can you explore, and fully appreciate, the beauty and historical significance of The Canary Islands. Thank-You John!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Richard, I'm so glad you enjoyed your day with me and thank you so much for your comments. I thoroughly enjoyed sharing a few hours with you and do hope you will call me up if you come this way again. All the best, John

We did 2 tours with John, which were both spectacular and a lot of fun. We greatly appreciated his willingness to adapt the itinerary to meet our interests (eg. adding a visit to La Laguna in the Taganana tour) and age requirements in our group. He really went beyond the call of duty to maximise our enjoyment of this beautiful island and we had a fantastic time both days.

John is the best tour guide we have ever had: prompt, good-humoured, articulate, knowledgeable and passionate about Tenerife. He was very flexible, adapting the pace and the itinerary for the 3 generations in our family. He gave just the right amount of interesting facts and information. John's vehicle is comfortable and he is a careful driver. We also appreciated his efforts to avoid the crowds and his recommendations for (and in) local restaurants. We enjoyed our 2 tours with him immensely.

We have been fortunate in all our tours. But John's tour yesterday was outstanding! He was knowledgeable in so many varied areas of Tenerife, from the history of the pirates to an incredible knowledge of plants and agriculture! He was kind and very sensitive to my husband's physical disabilities and always made sure to minimize how much he had to walk, and often had us wait while he retrieved the car. We also had a FABULOUS lunch!! Touring with John was definitely one of the highlights of our trip!!!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Suzan and Larry, Thank you so much for taking the trouble to write a note about me. You do exaggerate! But I highly appreciate it and hope you can come this way again for more, maybe before a long hot summer when the island is still alive with blossom. 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.

This tour was taken as a shore excursion from a cruise boat. After a very easy booking process, John was right where he said he would be at the time agreed on. The vehicle was extremely clean and comfortable & having some water for us was a nice touch. All 6 of us thoroughly enjoyed spending the day with John - he is extremely knowledgeable and everywhere he took us was beautiful & interesting.

John guided me through Tenerife's first capital city La Laguna, a city filled with history, art and charm. He knew his history and the places to see (especially the art) and gave me an understanding of the Island. His family has deep ties here going back to 1812. He took me to a local out of the way place for lunch which was exactly what I was looking for and I had rabbit for the first time as well as locally prepared potatoes with the local "mojo" sauce. He also showed me Orotava and Puerto de la Cruz

We loved our tour of Tenerife and El Teide with John. The whole day seemed more like a drive with a knowledgeable friend than a tour. We had a great hike around the upper volcano, made more enjoyable by the fact that we were some of the first visitors to the cable car station. On the way down from the El Teide, we had a great lunch with John's help in choosing the best local items. We had a wonderful day with a wonderful new friend.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Monica and Jerry, What a lovely surprise to see your comment. It just confirms my similar opinion....that I had made some wonderful new friends at 12,600 feet above sea level!
