  • Second time we visited this wonderful place, and again it has been a unique experience. We highlight the friendliness of their owners, who serve you personally and friendly way. His astronomical tour has nothing to envy of the Observatory Mamalluca, even in many respects it is better (e.g., you pass a blanket for cold, give you the own vineyard wine tasting, you get soup and garlic sandwich), the bilingual tour the guides are very interactive and clarify doubts of the people. The place is located in the middle of a vineyard, has a privileged, beautiful view and also boasts accommodation where the breakfasts are amazing. Ultimately a very unforgettable experience and highly recommended.

  • 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.
  • Friendly people! Very honest. Beautiful place. They know a lot about astrology..i absolutely recommend..just be careful with the weather if you want to see the stars
  • Excellent place. Astronomical tours. relatively near the plaza de vicuña.
