This was a van tour arranged by a CC member. Wonderful tour of volcanoes, good commentary. It was colder than expected, so bring a jacket. This is a very scenic area to be sure to get out of town and see.

Tenerife We went on the ship's 'Best of Tenerife - Lava and Fire' all day tour costing $139 (£92.70). We spent the morning driving to and from the Mount Teide national park, with photograph stops for the lava terrain and views of Mount Teide and a tea/coffee break at a restuarant in the park (included in the price). We would have liked to have visited Mount Teide but was told that the wait for a cable car to take us to the top would be hours, if not the rest of the day. On the way to and back our guide was very keen to tell us all about Tenerife's ecosystem to the point that you had the impression that you had heard the same thing several times. For lunch we stopped at a very good hotel restaurant at Puerto de la Cruz (included in the price) where we had a choice of several starters, mains and desserts washed down by a decent bottle of white or red wine and a bottle of water (between 2). After lunch, there was time to walk on the black sandy beach which was just round the corner from the hotel. the next stop was the nearby village of La Orotava where we visited the church and La Casa de los Balconies (the House of the Balconies) where you can buy lace and local produce such as wine, cheese, etc, etc. On the way back to the ship we stopped at the new opera house near the docks to take some photographs. We would have liked to have seen more of the coastal resorts or Santa Cruz which would have been possible if the ship had spent more time in Tenerife but it left at 6 pm to spend the night anchored somewhere off Lanzarote. We will be going back there to have a more indepth tour round including taking the cable car up to Mount Teide.
