What people are saying about Tenerife

(Sunset cava + self guided stargazing, in April) First time on a stargazing tour. Solid overall. I was scared the bad weather could ruin the experience, but both sunset and stargazing are done above the clouds, so you could see everything perfectly. The cava part isn't really worth it in my opinion, if you have a car. The sunset is beautiful but you can just do the same thing by yourself. The stargazing - they let us see 5 different objects through the telescope, and didn't pressure us to be quick. They offered to take pictures of everyone at the end with the sky in the background. Unfortunately the milky way isn't visible in April, but we happened to spot a few shooting stars. The explanations are at a basic level (which I don't blame them for) so if you know a bit of astronomy already you won't be too impressed. Anyway would definitely recommend, at least if it's your first time stargazing.

Wow! What an amazing evening and great value for money. Lovely tasty food at a local Canarian restaurant up on the mountain side and great wine. Then on to a beautiful location to see the sunset. The stream of orange, red and yellows lighting up the sky in a almost unrealistic surrounding. Then finally to the highest road point on teide to see the stars. Lots of information unbelievable views into the night sky. It was very cold and dark at the top but for us just made the experience more surreal. Would recommend for all.

We went with a 10-year-old boy and we were lucky to be a very small group, so the relationship was very close and participatory. The guide explained everything in a pleasant and very interesting way. At all times there has been a follow-up since the purchase of the activity.

Had a really enjoying evening/night. The Guide was great and very knowledgeable. The dinner at the Bodega was of excellent quality as well as a family hospitality second to none.

Until sunset, many sufficiently long photo stops at the most interesting places in the national park. Very extensive explanations by the guide. We recommend.
