The guide was very clear in all languages he spoke. The trip offered what was advertised and more…. Once on the bus, you stayed on the bus with no changes at Los Christian’s etc. The guide was extremely knowledgeable and I learned much more about the island, even though I have been here many times. I am a solo traveller and felt very comfortable. Had time to explore all of the places visited. The restaurant suggested for lunch was reasonably priced, and although a simple meal (4 choices per course), I chose the fish which was delicious. There were plenty of opportunities to take photos or just relax and take in the wonderful places.

The dinner was so nice and the location of the meal, especially for the price of this experience. Even though it was a cloudy day we went above the clouds and had the best experience, I had never seen so many stars and even saw quite a few shooting stars! I definitely recommend, the only downfall was the travelling there/back felt quite long but it was definitely worth it! People was complaining about the different languages making the experience too long but this was not a problem!

Feeder mini bus picked us up locally and took us to a central point to meet the main coach. The restaurant was amazing. Good food and wine. Onwards to the star's. A good evening. Maybe would have seen more star's etc if the moon hadn't have been so bright. But the moon lit the whole area very nice. Maybe should have been advised wearing a mask was compulsory. (No mention in the itinerary what to bring!)

Great experience! Alex our guide was fantastic, very professional, polite and knowledgeable. The park is really a must see. The buggies were in great condition and comfortable, I didn’t find it cold at all but yes if you’re susceptible to a bit of wind chill then bring a fleece! Would highly recommend the activity, it didn’t feel rushed and wasn’t too long either. Perfect! Thank you too guys!

Amazing! I will not forget this trip and the views. Very good guide. Lot of informations.
