First experience immersed in the stars on the slopes of the volcano. We did a first part of explanation and a second part of observation. Don't think twice, ask for their jackets: they are warm and more technical so you will be totally engrossed in the sky and won't beat your teeth! Thanks to our guide Paola (Spanish) who made us stay with our noses up and thrill in front of one of the most beautiful skies in the world (and With the full moon) ☺️ I recommend arriving on Teide for the sunset, it gives a light magical.

The tour was absolutely amazing and very inspiring! Who finds stars interesting, meets guides who have literally made their hobby a profession. You can borrow jackets from the organizer for the tour if necessary because it can be very cold at night in Teide National Park. We had a fantastic view of saturn and full moon. The equipment of the guides was absolutely professional. Our evening was really a special and interesting experience. Once again learned how small we humans are to the universe. Thank you very much guys!

It was an excellent experience and I would highly recommend this tour to anyone. It was first week of January, so the temperature was around 0 degrees with strong wind - and the guide brought extra jackets for us without us even asking. The overall tour was well structured, guide was full of enthusiasm and knowledge. He gave us a lot of information and answered all our questions in very easy terms. Given the extremely cold weather, we finished the tour in just over 60 minutes as per our request but we could have gone on for a lot longer as the guide was very enthusiastic about astronomy in general. Apart from the cold weather, it was a great experience.
