We signed up after some friends told us how much they enjoyed it. After reading some of the reviews I was a bit concerned it would be too scientific. Also we could only do it the night we arrived, and after being up since 5:00am, I was somewhat skeptical of it being a good idea, as we drove 50 minutes... More

A must do when you are in Sedona. The whole family loved it, including our teenagers. Good explanations by our host. The location is also well chosen for great photography.

You can't go to Arizona without looking at the sky, and this trip is well worth the effort. Our guide Trevor made it a most informative, interesting evening. Seeing the milky way was amazing! Even our teenage daughter who was not overly keen on going, admitted it had been a great experience and she learnt lots!

Check on your phone what time sunset will be on your visit and make sure to pick your spot early because it will be packed and you will not be able to see this amazing view due to over crowding.

Our guide, Trevor, was so wonderful and made this "educational experience" even exciting for my 11 and 14 year olds-not an easy age to impress! It was a fun night learning about the sky and stars above and getting to see them up close through their telescope! Great experience and so glad we did it!

Our astronomer was very well educated with the stars and what we were looking at. She was very informative and BTW her name was Trevor. We got to see Jupiter, little dipper, binary stars and that is just naming a few. We were on a soccer field which got colder as the night went on but they had blankets and... More

This review is totally from my standalone view point of stargazing in Sedona on my own. The night sky is extraordinarily dark in Sedona. As long as the skies are clear you'll be able to see an enormous amount of stars. Telescope viewing is definitely a plus. The tour is sure to be great. I took my own long exposure... More

Sedona is a certified "dark skies" town which means they have numerous regulations on outside illumination. That being said don't expect to many stars during the Summer. This is Arizona rainy, monsoon season. The other problem during the Summer is forest fires. Drive North to Flagstaff about 50 miles and go to Lowell Observatory. Gazing is always better any time...

We really enjoyed this activity. The astronomer was very knowledgeable and kindly answered all our questions. I have a new appreciation and understanding of the stars and planets. I definitely recommend this for anyone visiting Sedona!
