taxi drivers

by g. sharples

My first encounter this time with taxi drivers was when I was leaving a timeshare to stay at another one in the las americas area. My wife had got into the taxi as I put bags in the boot, as the driver became aware of someone wanting the airport, he turfed us out and put the others in. There were a few choice words said, but I think it had been noted by the president of the taxis. Not very customer friendly. The next encounter at my second and third week stay in the resort was that the taxi rank was right under our apartment,and all night the drivers 8 or 9 at a time sometimes, all got out and started to jabber, jabber, at their loudest. This noise included banging car doors, bonnet, boots, while they cleaned them out, beeping horns etc. This kept both of us awake for a great deal of our stay, and they could,t have cared less if anybody was trying to sleep, so my opinion of them is quite low.
I have been coming here for about 20 years, but not impressed this time.

Thank you Fabio for your concern, I will be returning in February 2014, as I have done for a number of years, and I hope the taxi drivers take note of the heading. Just a little more concern when they have taxi ranks close by to apartment blocks, that,s all I ask. Maybe the authorities should look a little closer at where these ranks are situated if they care about their visitors!
Thanks for the reply time.

Dear G. Sharples,

It is a pity however that you've been through this problem in your stays in Tenerife. The island is beautiful and full of attractions and friendly people, but not always the visitors have perfect days off.

Sincerely hope this does not impede you of coming back, and hopefully next time you will have only positive memories.

Thank a lot for contributing with your story and all the best!
