A friend recommended this and we were not disappointed. We were collected punctually and driven up into the mountains. How they drive up the steep and winding roads was a miracle. The sight of Jupiter and Saturn were amazing and all the other stars and...More

I really enjoyed my night with Gaulthier, Carmello and the group. Living in a cloudy country, I seldom look at the stars much. But with a clear Canarian sky full of stars to see, it was a beautiful night. They have great gear, astronomical skills,...More
