    We had doubts of know them because we were with a small, but it was excellent, good reception of the guides, mastery of the subjects, clear, friendly and despite not being an observatory could see much more than friends who visited Mamalluca. Blankets, soup and glass of wine. The best thing is that they did participate to my daughter's all observations as well as all. Preferred

    I expected something else and left pleasantly surprised! People serving is very friendly, they spoke well in Spanish and English... are always concerned about the comfort of all. We arrived at a field with vineyards near Vicuña, where have cabins and lodging. The astronomical tur is a part. It costs $10mil adult and $5mil children. It begins with an educational talk with comfortable armchairs and covered with frazaditas 3D in a super dome video, they gave us to try a glass of wine at the choice of the area. Fernanda gave us a spectacular talk about an overview of astronomy in Spanish and English. Then and now at night, we went stargazing to outdoors and in groups of 10-15personas in 3 different telescopes... very interesting. As to cold, they brought us soup and bread as we watched the stars... To be my first astronomical experience is very happy. Highly recommended!

    It is a wonderful and unforgettable experience, where it all begins in a way very attractive and interesting, knowing a little more about the history of the Earth and the cosmos, accompanied by a good wine, then continue with a walk and a view of the beautiful sky of the Valley elqui, all this accompanied by a wonderful personal attention, which makes this a unique experience.

    Great experience!!! The Alfa Aldea team really tries to make you have a good time with wine and hot soup while you listen the guide. The groups are small so it is better when looking at the telescope or listen the explanations. The guide was really knowledgeable. They could separate the groups into spanish and english speakers since in my group some people could not enjoy the whole experience because they were lost in translation.
