A truly memorable experience, and not because it was freezing cold! Miguel offered a detailed and fascinating tour of our galaxy as seen from Tenerife in January. We saw Orion's nebula, Andromeda galaxy, Mars, Jupiter and its moons, major visible constellations and associated mythology. What's not be wowed by? Thank you Miguel and your team. We've thawed out now and are still talking about it

The guide told it very nicely. Business sense. His English wasn't great but he apologized for this. We drove on our own and were initially in the wrong parking space: note: it is the 2nd parking space on the right AFTER the cable car (from the south). Small group of 8 men, very pleasant, never had to wait long to look through the telescope. I did not want to miss it.

It has been a very interesting and different experience. Learning about the sky, the stars and planets from Oscar, a true professional who answered all our questions with a smile and an enviable attitude, has been one of the best things we took away from Tenerife. we will recommend you without a doubt. See you in the Bali sky!
