In short: An indescribably beautiful experience with a competent guide, which is worth every cent. 10/10! The tour begins with a short and easy hike to a flat part of the mountain. On the way, Pablo explains a bit about the island, the surroundings and how it was formed. A nice stopover is the "rock window" from where you can see the Roque Nublo. Once at the top, the evening starts with a picnic. We ate well beforehand, as the vegan option is usually meager. But not with Pablo: there were vegan empanadas, quesadillas and other snacks, which we unfortunately couldn't eat. It's just great that even this was taken care of so carefully! I don't want to spoil too much of the tour, but as soon as the sun goes down, the starry sky sparkles. Pablo knows a lot about the starry sky and uses a laser pointer to explain the signs of the zodiac in a way that even laypeople can understand. DO NOT TAKE ROUTE 605!

We were absolutely thrilled with the nighttime astronomy hike. It was intended as a birthday gift for my dad and we all loved it. It exceeded our expectations and we were just blown away. From blankets, sleeping pads, warm drinks, fantastic snacks, great explanations, beautiful views, a dreamy sunset, and a clear, wonderful view of the starry sky that would never have been possible in our hometown, everything was included. It was a once-in-a-lifetime experience that we'll always carry in our hearts. Pablo was incredibly patient, accommodating, attentive, and brought such enthusiasm that you couldn't help but listen intently! If we ever travel to Gran Canaria again, more tours with the best guide, Pablo, will definitely be a part of our holiday! It's a heartfelt recommendation!

Very good time with Pablo, we barely missed the sunset but the colors were magnificent. We saw beautiful skies on New Year's Eve! Pablo is a very good guide, teacher and enthusiast.

Everything. Pablo thought of everything you need and was the nicest guide you could imagine. He was there with his heart and his heart was in the right place. 🫶

Super nice tour, the guide explains a lot, very interesting!
