It was a very lovely experience that we didn’t expect we could get in a big city full of lights. Théo made it really special with local aperitifs. He was really patient explaining and answering our questions about basic astronomy. We had an awesome time and it’s definitely an experience that we will recommend to friends. Thanks again Théo!
