Five of us went out for a night stargazing. It was absolutely wonderful, and our guides were incredibly knowledgeable. Unfortunately we went the night after a full moon, but were still able to see a lot. Carmelo helped us take close up pictures of the moon which turned out incredible. I cannot thank them enough for the experience.

We spent an absolutely amazing evening with Carmelo stargazing. He was so knowledgeable about the night sky, we had a fantastic time. Don’t forget to wrap up warm!

A wonderful experience and good introduction to the heavens for stargazing novices. Our guides Carmelo and Jose were knowledgeable and friendly and shared their enthusiasm. We were well cared for and the mint tea was welcome. The trip up the mountain was an experience in itself - the views, the sunset !! My advice is go for it but seriously do wrap up warm (gloves hats) it will be cold and you will be standing around a lot, bring a snack as its a long time you'll be up there, and dont be scared of the extremely unusual bird sounds from the rocks.
