One of the best excursions we went to in Sedona. Being from the city you do not get to see and appreciate the stars as you do out in Sedona. The tour guides were very knowledgeable as they pointed out many of the constellations. The tour provided comfy chairs, blankets and mosquito repellent. Good tour to get kids involved with... More

There was not a cloud in the sky the night we went star gazing. David, our astronomer guide, showed us nebulas, double stars and all the constellations. I am so happy we did this tour. Tip: wear more layers than you think you'll need - the temperature drops quickly.

Stargazing with Trevir was fantastic. This guided night theater was very comfortable. We met at the end of verde valley school road, we took a short lighted walk to a field where chairs, blankets, and soft warm jackets awaited us. It was interesting fun and much more than I expected. I'd definitely do it again and again

We have never seen so many stars in the night sky -- there has to be hundreds of them -- there is no light pollution so you can see so many magnificent stars in the skies

Very easy to find. Astronomer 'tour guides' very knowledgeable and informative and friendly. Amazing to learn more about the night sky, our galaxy, and space. Well worth the time and dollars.

During a recent trip to Sedona, I ran across this star gazing tour and simply had to do it. Yes, I'm a bit of an astronomy nerd, so this was right up my alley. It did not disappoint! Our guide, Rick Shaffer, was EXTREMELY knowledgeable of the cosmos and has led quite the life in the field. He worked for... More

We thoroughly enjoyed this experience. It was set up on the local HS soccer field and we met there an hour after sunset. Partial moon. There were 3 astronomers for our group and we divided into three groups of 8 or so. They had chairs and blankets for us and the path was well lit but not so intense it... More

We were EXTREMELY excited about this tour, as we are from a part of the country where visible stars aren't abundant in our sky. We'd never seen the Milky Way and were thrilled to have an hour or two to learn our way around the night sky. The two guides were incredibly knowledgeable and very, very thorough. They were professional... More

If you have the opportunity ever to do this make sure you do! Our guide was Trevor and not only was she very knowledgeable she was very interesting and told great stories of the constellations. I have never done this kind of thing before so I was completely new, however, even if you are interested in astronomy and have been... More

I was not sure what to expect but my girlfriend insisted we do it as it sounded like fun. What we got was absolutely mind blowing and a must see for anyone visiting Sedona. Our guide, Westin, was extremely knowledgeable and showed us some amazing constellations that you are not able to see with the naked eye. The lack of... More
