(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.

A wonderful tour to discover the main sites of the island. The 15€ optional lunch was very nice too. We couldn’t hear the guide very well but he never stops...however it is very well organised and timings are impeccable. The road up from Masca is impressive but I had every confidence in the driver! Beautiful views, amazing scenery, fascinating geology, picturesque villages and also glimpse of the past eruptions and the black volcanic rock left behind! I thoroughly recommend this excursion. Do not try to drive it yourself!

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.

Our guide spoke 5 languages and I really enjoyed learning some history of the island and the volcano. Tiedes National Park was beautiful and is very accessible for those with physical impairments. I would book this tour again!
