Ok stargazing evening

The trip up the mountain gave excellent views going through the clouds to a very clear sky. Watching the Sun setting through the sea of clouds was nice. Two of the 3 guides were very knowledgeable but there were too many people about 40 for the 3 guides. The 3 telescopes were not professional. More like midrange amateur models (Skywatcher Dobsonion 8" and 12" models) they did the job but not I was expecting as professional models. The meal was a waste of money and very small portions and a waste of stargazing time. It seemed more like an opportunity for them to sell you there wine. We had a few issues with the coach breaking down and not ending up at the top of the mountain at 6000ft which was clearer, rathet at the resturant at 1000ft. They promised some sort of refund but nothing yet. Overall I do not think it was worth the €80 each. Cut out the meal and bring the price down.

Great Dinner, Great Views - Wish Group Was Smaller
Gracie G

I really wanted to give this excursion 5 stars because the coach we were picked up in was comfortable, the dinner at the vineyard was delicious and the views of the stars on Mt. Teide were amazing. However, it was less enjoyable because the description said ~6 hours and it ended up being over 8. We spent almost two hours on the coach just picking people up at their hotels. It would have been WAY more enjoyable and relaxing if we didn't spend so much time waiting outside of hotels for people to come out and get on the bus. I highly recommend having smaller groups for that reason alone. Another less than enjoying situation was when we got to the park to see the stars and the size of the group was so large it took awhile to look through the telescope. At this point we were so tired from the coach ride, that it wasn't even worth our energy to wait in line to see the stars/planets through the telescopes. Overall, amazing experience if you don't mind spending 3+ hours in a coach and/or waiting in line on other people. I really hope the company decides to reduce the size of the groups in each tour because it really is a fantastic experience and fun thing to do if you're in Tenerife.

Great time

We have been on this trip before , so we are comparing. The food stop was fantastic this year , so much food and wine , the hostess was amazing speaking so passionately about the wine they produce at this vineyard . Having already been on the tour the previous year in a group of about 20-25 people , when we arrived at the food location there was already a large number of people in attendance, then us in a coach with 40+ all I could see was problems later with viewing the stars , but this wasn’t the case it was the same as the smaller group , in fact we saw more stars than the previous year because the Moon wasn’t shining above our heads like the year before. Now the reasoning for the 3 stars , the whole evening was ruined by my father being told by the coach driver he couldn’t get back on the coach . Now my Dad has just recently recovered from a triple bypass and was struggling to view the stars so he just wanted to get warm and comfortable, but wasn’t allowed... not sure why this was as there was other people already on the coach from our group ... Regards Steve

Money well spent

The guy who led this made the whole subject approachable and fun. It was a real blast using the big telescopes and the jackets they provided while we did it were warm and cosy (though way too big for either of my grandgirls. The dinner that proceeded the telescopes was tasty and filling.

An unforgettable experience, the trip was amazing from start to finish, well organised and the guides were extremely knowledgeable. A trip to remember - I would highly recommend this for anyone visiting Tenerife. Not to mention the view of the night sky both through the telescope and to the naked eye was incredible. 5 stars!!

You are brought on a harrowing ride up to a farm where you are dropped off for over 3 hours which has absolutely nothing to do with Mt. Teide. Although it can be fun to chat with strangers, you are directed indoors to a family style meal with minimal portions of really rough food. You don't even start out to Mt Teide until after dark. They bring you to a parking lot where you look at some some stars through a couple of telescopes. The guides were kind and knowledgeable which was a plus but this tour was a horrible disappointment and ruined our last night in Tenerife and our chance to really experience Mt. Teide as we had to leave on a flight the next morning.

The organizer is sophisticated and enthusiastic, very impressive of the whole arrangement. We were lucky to watch the beautiful sunset and stars in the darkest sky with eyes & through instruments. The 3-course meal with wine, soft drink was good indeed.

We went on the tour on the night of the solar eclipse, 62 people, three telescopes, shot glass size plastic cup of tea, one chocolate croissant type snack, 450 for six of us, we got 4 glances through the telescope each, worst value ever, so disorganised, not enough telescopes, no planning, awful
