Amazing tour. Well organised and lovely guides on every section of the tour. Beautiful views of the sunset from the top of Mount Teide. Lovely buffet dinner. And rounded off with a fascinating view of constellations and planets - naked eye and using telescopes. We saw Mars, the moon, and Saturn with it's rings and moons through the telescope. Many thanks to the local astronomer/astrophysicist who took our English speaking group - a really informative and entertaining presentation.
This is a great tour if you want to see a different side to the island. It is quite a long drive in a coach to reach Mt Teide and I would recommend wearing as many layers as possible as it's very cold at the top (especially as the sun starts to set). The views are spectacular and it's nice to be able to enjoy a refreshment in the warmth after the cable car visit to the top. After some food and drink you get to spend time star gazing with a guide and a few telescopes set up focused on different points of interest. It was a great way to spend an evening!
A very enjoyable afternoon/evening. To be honest the sunsets we have at home are more impressive - but the surroundings were spectacular, our guide was amusing and the sparkling wine flowed. The Canarien dinner was very good - again, plenty of wine too. It is very cold up that high after the sun goes down and we had not taken enough warm clothes - also as it was a half-moon the stars were not that bright - but it was a joy to look through the telescopes at the surface of the moon, the Andromeda galaxy etc. Very interesting to see the Teide natural park, the pines, the lava flows etc. - altogether a great experience.
