Astro La Palma runs a really good tour, well organised, very well informed guides who took us into the mountains to see so many stars and constellations you don’t see at home. I made a mistake with my booking and was very impressed when they...More

The experts were knowledgable and very friendly however they mostly just pointed out constellations and a couple of planets. You had the chance to look through the telescope, it’s not the greatest telescope but looking at the moon through it was awesome! It’s very cold...More

Arrived to a car park where we saw some stars. The guide was helpful and friendly, but nothing at all spectacular. Seemed rather overpriced for what we got. Make sure to come when the moon is low (as otherwise can’t see the Milky Way well)

On their site, you can pay with a credit card. Book early because sometimes you Will be put on á waiting list. When the weather should be bad you can go on another day or you can have your money back.

I don't think so. Once you are at there office/meeting point they offer to drive you to the points where the stargazing takes place. But you van call them. The phone number and office hours are on their website
