  • Fantastic experience. Gauthier was very friendly and very knowledgeable and was very good with my 7 year old son. The drive up the mountain had some stunning views and once at the top the view was breathtaking. He set up a big telescope and showed us several galaxies and planets, including Jupiter and it's moons and an absolutely amazing view of Saturn and it's rings which exceeded my expectations. This is the sort of experience you'll remember for life. Highly recommended and a very reasonable price.
  • My sons & I joined Gauthier & Carmelo to star gaze whilst on holiday in Gran Canaria during mid May. The knowledge, views & whole experience was top class. 5 out of 5 from James, Matt & Paul Green. Well done to a very knowledgable & highly entertaining team of two. I would recommend anyone interested in the Stars & Planets to join Gauthier & Carmelo in the Star Gazing workshop. We were lucky enough to see a shooting star too. Great.
  • Excellent trip, recieved emails informing on weather each day until it was good enough to go ahead. Picked up on time. It was a large group but plenty of very knowledgeable staff. An amazing experience seeing the sky and stars/planets. Definitely would recommend.
  • This was for sure the best excursion we had on Gran Canaria. Gauthier and his team (Carmelo that night) are not only very well prepared but also very friendly. For sure i will do it again if I go back to Gran Canaria. TOP!!!
  • A truly exciting experience. Excellent preparation by a very enthusiastic team. A must for everybody interested in star-observation.
