Many Tenerife tours are handled by international operators.
Thomas Cook, Tui, Thomson and other international operators do island airplane
visits or city travel for entertainment in particular. Then, there are
tour companies, many of which also work with little shops around towns.
Others like Viator or lately also TourGuides sell trips in the Internet. However, the Tenerife holiday
home insider would not recommend everything they offer, such as swimming
It's great to do them in style, such as with a sightseeing bus in the capital Santa Cruz de Tenerife. Mind there is a mini train too.
Now, get yourself a doubledecker bus ticket for less than €10 and get on and off at 14 stops without paying extra... Super comfort for handicapped and visually restricted people too... Buy at tourism offices Tenerife or at Hotels in Tenerife...
You may prefer an official guide on foot. Find him at a tourist information office. It may organize trips through town. You may be shown old Gofio mills, but also historic mansions like Casa de los Balcones and Casa Lercaro. Famous churches such as the Cathedral of La Laguna may be included in a route. The most renown baroque example of the Canary Islands Iglesia de la Concepción Orotava may be part of the agenda. Many more options are in Puerto Cruz
There, the Martianez pools with its former underground Casino belong to most popular tour destinations of the Canarian archipelago.
However, the sunset strip of Playa de las Americas with its night clubs by Arona is usually visited by the people themselves who often book accommodation nearby.
Consider to hire a bicycle at Los Cristianos for Teno explorations or better still, join its off-road trips.
Alternatively select the rugged coast of the Teno. Photos of it may be found here. This includes the light house by Buena Vista...
Be warned that part of this is very scary for driving. Rather buy yourself organized day trips for this unspoiled part of the island...
The fast ferry Fred Olsen ES
as well as Navieras Armas connect with other Canary Islands. Cars and pets are allowed.
Navieras travels as far as Madeira and Cadiz. More touring information for getting to Tenerife from there by clicking here...
Only do your own excursions to Teide, when you have plenty time and are very fit and experienced in the wild. Also don't chance a Titsa bus trip, as you may not catch the only afternoon bus back...
Please notice the snow with the Teide cable car portrayed beside. Don't plan a tour to Teide, when there is more snow than that. Or rather, always check if no roads up the mountains are closed. Generally, it is wiser to book a trip to Teide and its Cañadas.
Tour operators are expected to be clued up about road and weather conditions.
Trace some clubs and links for walking Tenerife as well as ideas to help you decide on where to go, when and how.
Tenerife travel resources for getting around are priced differently. Your best bet for up to date information is at big hotels as well as in tourism offices around the island.
This small but very well equipped Tenerife holiday home with pool and free parking has excellent infrastructure all around it, indeed. It's easy from there to have fun to get to know the island while meeting locals, such as in this remote corner of a town.
Entertainment Tenerife leisure boats or ocean cruisers stop over in Tenerife to give people the chance of touring some part of the island.
The ocean liners anchor by the capital of Tenerife where you find more fun and entertainment and even prime opera shows in winter.
During March 2008 I encountered at least 20 taxis from Santa Cruz of Tenerife which were all parked in Calle Venezuela Puerto de la Cruz, very close to Lido Martianez and beach Martianez. This whole road was packed with cabs. All their drivers were standing around waiting and chatting.
I was told that they had brought people from cruisers which had stopped over in Santa Cruz. "That's what happens, when tourist coaches are not booked before getting on board ship", a driver told me.
It is quite expensive to come all the way from the capital to Puerto Cruz by taxi...
One of the taxi drivers spoke English very well.
Tourists from ocean liners may call him, if they have enough time to see more of the island than just Puerto de la Cruz.
His name is Miguel Baez.
Please, phone: 0034 649 389 948
He is stationed at Santa Cruz.
Then, there are also the so called Tenerife tours of the 'swallows'. Those winter tourists arrive regularly and on time after early bookings to their holiday home in Tenerife. That's their base for their additional winter trips. Some hop over to La Gomera, La Palma, Gran Canaria, Fuerte Ventura and Lanzarote. Binter, Islas Airlines and the ferry Fred Olson help for those tours to the other Canary Islands.
Encounter a list of public buses for getting to attractions by public bus from Puerto de la Cruz. However, this bus transport is little practical late at night, on holidays and sometimes on week-ends and when you only have a vacation of seven to 10 days.
When your holidays are not long, always select proper tourist tours, rather!
A shopping tour with sight seeing is something I recommend for the capital, especially for central shopping as attractions are close by.
Trips to buy Tenerife art
are also worth it.
So is a tour for shopping in Garachico in the context of Tenerife tours for sight seeing, art, gifts and handicrafts. By the way, the Auditorium Santo Domingo of Garachico may even display famous local sculptures for sale.
