Your chance to book your themed guided tour around Tegueste 

Tegueste has started its programme of unusual guided tours and the 2015 events are expected to be a huge success.

The initiative began with a spotlight on the municipality’s rich history and wine which included a visit to to local wineries and vineyards.

It proved a hugely entertaining day but if you missed it, don’t worry. There is much more to come throughout the coming year, with a look at many of Tegueste’s attractions from its nature and countryside to dramatised tours and sport.

These guided tours are particularly special because they can be conducted in English, French or German.

The programme has been arranged by the local council’s tourism de-partment headed by Marcela del Castillo and is designed to introduce local people to the charms on their doorstep and visitors to the delights other areas of Tenerife, apart from the tourist zones, can offer.

The guided tours are always on a Saturday but prior registration is needed as places will be limited. All interested should ring the tourist office on 922 31 61 02.

There are about 30 routes in all, promoting culture, archaeology, the landscape and local cuisine.

The degree of difficulty is always specified, together with the length of the walking route.

“One of the objectives of this initiative is to help spread the cultural heritage of Tegueste,” said the tourism councillor.
