We were the first pick up - right on time at 6 am. The group was bigger than I expected but our tour leader Bassu was a good organiser with all the stops, collecting ferry tickets and getting us on the ferry. The day was well timed right back to getting on the ferry ( the group were good at keeping to times) Favourite- view of La Playas with the Parador hotel lying next to the beach, smallest hotel made an interesting topic of conversation in the future We knew we would be last drop off way back and had already decide to get a taxi All in all a lovely day in another Canarian island

This is a long day trip -- BUT worth it !!!! El Hierro is little visited and the smallest and least well known of the Canary Isles. BUT get there now before everyone else discovers it !! This is what Tenerife was like 50 years ago!!! Hardly any cars -- certainly no coachload of tourists ; now large supermarkets or shopping centres. Instead what you get a mind bogglingly beautiful island with a stunning variety of scenery which changes seemingly within kilometres: volcanic to desert like to thickly forested misty mountains to fertile pineapple plantations . Incredible views from many viewpoints -- best places on the visit: the natural rock pools at La Maceta and the Cesar Manrique designed Mirador of La Pena . Thoroughly a must do if you want to see more than the fleshpots of Las Americas

It was a great experience! El Hierro is one of the most spectacular places of the world, but it was pretty hard to discover it wothowi a car. So we were happy to find this excursion. Thank you, Basso, for guiding us at the island! Highly recommend. It was a small group of 9 people from different countries so the excursion was really exclusive.

We couldn’t recommend this tour too highly. The Cool Tenerife agent was so helpful, arranging for a special pick-up for us, at no extra cost, from Calla Salvaje. The local agent was, too, excellent, promptly replying to our final queries by email. The guide, Basso, was just superb - utterly professional and very caring of the needs of individual travellers. We were entranced by El Hierro, so remote and different from the southern resorts of Tenerife. A tour which is excellent value for money and not to be missed!

I did the El Hierro island -tour in early april 2018. The tour was exactly what I waited for and thought it might be. I was picked up about 7 AM from my hotel to Los Cristianos harbour, from where we took a catamaran of Armas line to Hierro. The ferry journey took about 2,5 hours in one direction. On Hierro we 9 people and our guide toured some six hours around the northern and western parts of this magnificent island, from the coast up to the central highland and mountains, including the tiny capital, Valverde. The highlands were cloud covered and we didn't see as much as on a clear day, but nevertheless everything was most interesting. El Hierro is a wild island with only 11 000 inhabitants and few tourists - most of the latter ones seemed to be hikers or day trippers like us. The nature is wonderful with the abundance of endemic plant life and steep, volcanic forms. The Atlantic waves on the west coast were impressive! The silence as well as the lack of heavy traffic, tourist areas and high rise buildings made a wonderful, total contrast with Tenerife, an impression what all the Canaries might have been before the age mass tourism. Our guide, Basso Lanzano from Get Holiday, was excellent and knew his job. Our group consisted of spaniards, italians and myself from Finland, and he told everything tirelessly in three languages english in my case. A pity we did not have time to visit all the best sites of the island - which only means that it's really worth another trip in the future, perhaps staying overnight for a longer time. All in all: this tour is very recommendable and well worth the price 100 euros!

Lovely unspoilt island to visit but unfortunately very biased towards German and Spanish . Nothing wrong with that but if you are booking an English speaking tour ! Thankfully our daughter who was travelling with us is fluent in Spanish so she translated for us . Think it would be better to take smaller groups so everyone understands language being spoken
