From collection to drop-off in Fanabe, Simon of DST was the most polite, well informed, patient and helpful guide/host. After the drive up through the clouds and the amazing sunset and afterglow over Gomera, Simon took us to his “secret spot” which was just ideal for the photography. Had never seen the Milky Way “live” and did not believe when Simon advised that the MW would become visible in about one hour once the sun was fully down. I imagined this would be through telescope/zoom lens but never expected to see this humbling sight with the naked eye. Absolutely stunning and the guidance from Simon both on the night sky (including our nearest galaxy Andromeda, again with the naked eye) was simply the best. Comets, satellites, planets and with Teide standing sentinel in the background was simply awe-inspiring. Would highly recommend this trip and using Dark Skies Tenerife. No faults whatsoever.”
