  • Before booking I read most of the reviews and then it turned out that they were all real. Wonderfully structured time with fans. Gauthier and Carmelo infect their passion, knowledge itself falls to the head and to the views of this world! We were impressed with the prevailing around the silence of the przedzieranej only the sounds of birds and our "WOW" after another glance on the planet, the stars in the next stage of life or other celestial bodies. Tour is a hit, the company worthy of command. Best regards, Maciek and Bronek

  • A tour booked for a birthday turned out to be a unique and inimitable. The kindness and harmony offering Carmelo and his collaborator are something unique. The amazing place ... a natural Observatory. Made us forget all the time to be in the middle of civilization. Professionalism only and many other surprises most welcome cheered the evening. Money spent a great time. Certainly an experience to recommend to all fans and not. Graziella

  • This was a splendid tour with excellent service (pick up at hotel, free drink, great hospitality). The ride to the mountains was already a lot of fun. We all learned a lot about astronomy and enjoyed ...  more »

  • 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 :)
