Very often travellers making a mistake choosing a wrong restaurant traveling in Tenerife. As the tour organizer and private tours guide I can suggest to follow a few basic rules to avoid mistake and to have a really good meal in Tenerife:


  1. Avoid ANY restaurant in the Teide National Park and Masca village. These places are extremely popular among tourists and usually a restaurant see a customer just once, so as the consequence the quality of food and the service level is rather low, if not extremely low. And overpriced.
  2. Look where local people are eating. If there are mainly local people in a restaurant, it is a kind of guarantee the food is tasty, prices are okay.
  3. Generally (but not always) try to avoid restaurants right on the first line by the beach.


If you follow these  rules, it is sure, you will enjoy tasty meal for a reasonable price and will keep a good memories about the island.

Tenerife Host offers private shore excursions by coach for groups from cruise ships in Santa Cruz de Tenerife. This is better alternative for standard bus tours, if you have a group of friends or families and wish to go in a private group from 8 to 70 people. That means you will get the bus and one of our best guides exclusively for your group, no matter what’s the size of the group.


Generally you can choose a 6 hour long private sightseeing tour to the heart of the island of Tenerife – Teide Volcano and National Park.

If you are interested to see how different the island is on every part, we’ll recommend you to do 8 hour long private sightseeing tour – shore excursion to visit not just volacano and Teide National Park, but also Masca village, hidden in the beautiful Teno Mountains; Garachico – cozy town which was first capital and the most important trade harbour of Tenerife three centuries ago until it was destroyed by huge volcano eruption; the historical center of Icod de Los Vinos – the town where you will see the oldest Dragon Tree in the world.

This private shore excursion by coach for groups from cruise ships in Santa Cruz de Tenerife is a perfect mix of nature and history of the island.


If you have your own ideas about the places you wish to visit and things to do during your day stop in Tenerife, we can plan the individual tour especially for your group.

If you are looking for a romantic and beautiful VIP private tour in Tenerife, Tenerife Host recommend you the private Sunset Tour with possibility to extend for a Stargazing by the foot of the Teide Volcano.


We will pick you up by limousine (if 1-4 people in your group) or by mini-bus (if 4 to 7 people) and we will go all the way upward to the heart of the island on altitude over 2000m. By the way we will visit Vilaflor – the highest village in Spain, we will crose all the Teide National Park, doing stops in the most spectacular points and finally we will reach a very special point to observe probably the most beautiful sunset you ever saw in  your life.

After the sunset optionally we can extend the tour for Stargazing what’s the next amazing experience since the Teide is one of just a few places in the world where you can see so magically starry skies.
