We were picked up right on time and driven up to Mt. Tiede. Steve educated us the whole drive up about the history and answered any questions we had. We got to watch a beautiful sunset with a class of cava before driving up even higher. We were able to see an amazing sky full of stars and got to use their 2 telescopes to get really clear vision of the moon. We even saw a few shooting stars. This tour was great based off the small size compared to other tours we saw that were significantly larger and also appear to be double the length due to extended pick up and drop off times. I would highly recommend this tour and would do it again if we return to Tenerife in the future!

The tour was amazing. The sunset was beautiful but overall it's more like a bonus to watch it from the mountain. When we arrived at Teide Park, it was very beautiful to watch the rocks at sunset (I don’t know how to describe it, so I will attach photos), the silhouettes of the mountains were amazing. But the most beautiful sight awaited us ahead. When it got completely dark, a stunning view of the starry sky and an arm of the galaxy opened up, I have not seen anything like this before, the whole sky was dotted with stars, Steve took a short tour of the sky and then took the telescope out of the car, if I'm not mistaken in the names we saw the M13 cluster, Two stars red and blue, saw Saturn and its satellite Titan. Also Steven took amazing photos of the sky for us.

We went with four adults, two teens and an 11 year old. We were picked up by Steve who was early to collect us at the agreed meeting point. He also rang us during the day to confirm. The scenery on the drive up was gorgeous but nothing compared to the sunset that we enjoyed with a few glasses of Cava which was amazing. They'd orange juice and chocolate for the kids. We then went onwards to the site for the star gazing which was absolutely mind blowing. The guides were brilliant, it was really informative but the sky was the real star of the show (forgive the pun). Without the telescope it was an awesome sight, but to see Saturn through the lens was amazing. We saw satellites, constellations, the Milky Way and quite a few shooting stars. All in all it was a great night out, completely mind blowing and therefore brilliant value for money too. Couldn't recommend highly enough.

Hi we choose Darkskies tenerife has we wanted to go with a small group of people unlike other star gazing tours we weren't disappointed. We were picked up and taken to the sunset viewpoint by car we met Steve the tour guide there. While watching the sunset over La Palma we enjoyed a glass or two of Cava, during the sunset Steve spoke about the different Teide eruptions very interesting.we then moved on up Teide to see the night Sky just pop into life, Steve was very knowledgeable about the different Stars galaxy's supernovas he pointed these out with his laser pen. We then waited for Saturn to appear amazing seeing this through the large Telescope he had brought up because it was a small group didn't have long to wait to take our turn. Absolutely a brilliant way to celebrate our Golden Wedding Anniversary. When it was time to leave we jumped back in the car and Elena took us back down to Los Gigantes Thanks Steve for a truly wonderful experience we would recommend you to everyone we know that wants to experience the night sky.

We were picked up by Steve at a nearby hotel ---remember to describe yourselves, his van is not marked so not easy to spot. Steve provided lots of interesting information on the way up and stopped several times to allow us to take pictures of the amazing scenery. Crossing the bowl of a volcano is truly amazing. Very "other world". Once it became dark, Steve took us to an excellent site for astronomy. His huge telescope provided us with views of many interesting deep space objects, as well as planets. Highlight for our family was clearly seeing Saturn with its rings and one of its moons. Steve's laser pointer was very handy pointing out the constellations and his commentry was informative and amusing. He kindly stayed extra late so we could really make the most of the trip. Our family really enjoyed our evening and confidently rate it 5 stars. Thanks Steve for a brilliant evening.
