  • It is an astronomy to enjoy in family, with children, tour is very well organized with great hospitality and professionalism. The tour includes informative talk, tasting of wines or juice (for children), then observation with telescopes and closing a hot soup to cool overnight. Absolutely recommended, if you must book in advance.

  • Excellent Tour for the family. I went with my wife and my children of 8 and 11 years and they went super well made several questions and we learned a lot from our solar system, its formation and composition. Also the care was very good, close and familiar. I recommend it without hesitation.

  • Nice and homie experience, we went there for a '18 de Septiembre' long weekend EXCLUSIVELY for the world-acclamed night sky of the area, what a perfect place to stay at a small astronomic center/hostel right? well...Cloudy with a chance of sunrays. all weekend. Yes, a drag. But what made the entire trip worth it was the hospitality of Marco (owner) and his enthisiasm for the sky. He took out his solar lenses and gave us a really cool speech of what we were watching.
  • 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.
  • Excellent accomodation, good price, great astronomy tour.
  • 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
  • A place very well equipped, run by the owners and that it delivers not only knowledge but that a unique and unrepeatable experience. 100% recommended
