The dinner was so nice and the location of the meal, especially for the price of this experience. Even though it was a cloudy day we went above the clouds and had the best experience, I had never seen so many stars and even saw quite a few shooting stars! I definitely recommend, the only downfall was the travelling there/back felt quite long but it was definitely worth it! People was complaining about the different languages making the experience too long but this was not a problem!

Feeder mini bus picked us up locally and took us to a central point to meet the main coach. The restaurant was amazing. Good food and wine. Onwards to the star's. A good evening. Maybe would have seen more star's etc if the moon hadn't have been so bright. But the moon lit the whole area very nice. Maybe should have been advised wearing a mask was compulsory. (No mention in the itinerary what to bring!)

Great experience! Alex our guide was fantastic, very professional, polite and knowledgeable. The park is really a must see. The buggies were in great condition and comfortable, I didn’t find it cold at all but yes if you’re susceptible to a bit of wind chill then bring a fleece! Would highly recommend the activity, it didn’t feel rushed and wasn’t too long either. Perfect! Thank you too guys!

Very fun and educational. Beautiful dinner place. The dinner was very good and we were able to take some great photos. The guide/astronomer was wonderful, he transmitted his love for the stars to us from minute 1. Now I want to know more and more. Many thanks

Great day out. Really interesting tour, with insight into some of Tenerife’s history and it’s wine making.
