  • This excursion into the mountains to the stargazing was the highlight of our vacation. Gauthier and José had prepared perfect everything. This included also point that our first date was postponed because the weather was not perfect. It must worry so, to participate and experience anything. You have collected the Group of 13 students, with two Faceoffs in different hotels in Maspalomas and the surrounding area. There was a preliminary discussion in a nice grill restaurant in the mountains and on the directions a further photo stop, while there was still daylight. There were three telescopes with different Taschenlampe and filter available, which were then rebuilt on a plateau high in the mountains. Gaultier has given a very interesting introduction with a small presentation about good understandable English. Then he has us at using led we have telescopes but also much even look. Since the 3 telescopes for 13 persons available, had each time. Mobile phone photos are possible through the telescopes! Finally, there was a little quiz and hot tea. To the tip to take really warm things, Gauthier has but also a wide range of warm jackets. Overall, it was a really great 5-hour trip, which has seen great and learned lots of new things!

  • 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.
  • Nice experience! The team is very knowledgeable and is going above and beyond to provide you with an amazing evening. Can highly recommend it!
  • Gran Canaria is beautiful. So much to see and do while relaxing and eating. Once in a while, an opportunity will present itself to you. This is one that I grabbed, twice! Trust me, the dunes are really astonishing but the experience you get with Gauthier and his team, going up the out of reach mountains to watch the stars and galaxies, is one of the best experiences in my life :). Trust me, just do it. You will remember it for the rest of your life. Best of luck, P
  • Really great evening. Wonderful trip through the countryside on the way to the stargazing site in the mountains. This was an unexpected highlight. Great introduction to astronomy as we were told what we would see that night etc. Then the telescopes were set up and we all got to view major planets of the solar system, ehich were very clear, and nebulas and globular clusters of stars outside our galaxy. There was quite a lot of dust in the atmosphere that night which slightly reduced the clarity of some images however it was altogether a wonderful evening which exceeded my expectations.
  • visited here because of the great reviews online and glad i did. Was an awesome trip, really interesting and great knowledgeable hosts. Was worried that my partner wouldn't enjoy it as much as me but even she thought it was good. Highlights for me were seeing jupiter, saturn and finally being able to see the milky way :)
