Thanks for the web site, I will check that out.
Excellent price with Tenerife Sunshine, we paid 36 Euros per adult whereas I noticed First Choice wanted 51 !
Loro Parque was excellent and we saw all the shows.
Quite liked the look of Puerto de la Cruz and would certainly consider a stay up there in the future, for a change of scene.
Planet Penguin was good - you just stand on the slow-moving conveyor belt which takes you round their replicated Antarctica habitat where they even reproduce falling snow. All the shows are excellent. Even the ubiquitous parrot show was better than most with lots of free-flying around the auditorium in between the usual parrot tricks we've all seen before. The Orca show was impressive though the trainers did not go in the water with them at all. It's obvious which seats will get soaked by the whales during the show so no excuses if you end up drenched. While waiting for the show to begin, they train a couple of cameras on various people in the audience so you could find yourself shown on the big electronic screen with a comical speech balloon caption added next to you. It's good fun though.
Entry was ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬32 (ages 12 & above) and ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬21 (children aged 6-11) at the gate and they also charge a couple of euros for parking the car but once inside the park they had the offer of a second visit for just ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬10 each if you return within a fortnight, a good deal if you fancied another visit during your holiday. My advice is go. You're bound to enjoy it.
Is this trip offered through the tour companies at the reps welcome meeting or will we have to make our own way ?
If we have to do it ourselfs is there transport from the Los Gigantes area or would we be better of hiring a car.
