We enjoyed the experience with our kids, 12 and 13, but were a little disappointed with their customer service. We were not greeted by anyone just asked to follow "that guy" who was walking away with 6 other people. They had a large telescope set up with chairs and blankets on a soccer field. The presenter was very knowledgable and... More

We really enjoyed the night. I only wished we could have seen the planet Jupiter better, like as the pictures shown on the website. It was a little deceiving. The guides were very knowledgeable and patient. They provided chairs and blankets- a nice touch on a chilly night.

Dave and Weston are knowledgeable tour guides. The night sky was mostly clear. We saw a binary star, several constellations, Mars, Jupiter and moon and Saturn. I agree with other reviewers, dress warmly. The company does blankets and parkas and a chair. I would recommend reconning the site before the tour as it is very dark drive!

Last night my teacher wife and I went out to get a lesson on the night sky. The instructor was very knowledgeable and had excellent equipment and presentation. We were part of a small group on a clear night Very informational. Dress VERY warm. Even with the nice parkas provided. If you like the stars then do this!

My husband and I thoroughly enjoy our time with Nigel. He was very thorough and informative - helpful for people not familiar with astronomy. Nigel was great at answering our questions and encouraged us to explore with his high powers telescopes. Overall a great experience. Our favorite was seeing rings on Jupiter! The parkas provided were super warm and were... More

We arrived in Sedona on a overcast day and had pre-booked our star gazing tour. We received a phone call confirming our reservation and helping us with directions if needed. We arrived with the clouds growing and were only able to see a couple of things. That said, I did see the moons of Jupiter. But, the star tour was... More

We decided to add this to our itinerary because our 12 year old daughter loves astronomy. Our guide Nigel was really nice, knowledgable, great with the kids, and very accommodating. They do their best to make sure you are warm by providing blankets and parkas but be sure to dress warmly, especially this time if the year...hats, mittens, warm coat... More

My 10 year old daughter,my two sisters and I did this Stargazing trip at the end of January while visiting Sedona. I think it would be much more enjoyable in warmer weather. It was so cold it was hard to concentrate on what they were saying. The other people in our party left half-way through because they were too cold.... More

This was amazing to see and something our family will never forget. We took my mother in law who knew exactly where we were headed she lives there. Could have saved the money but glad we got to view via high powered telescope. All so it's helpful to have a guide to point you in the right direction. It's so... More

Teenage son likes astronomy. I thought it was very charming that they provide parkas. Time went quickly for us despite cold temps. Friendly people & enthusiastic instructor. My son was dying to hear actual coyotes & they obliged - instructor spoke right thru their barking. Coyotes made the price more worth it (-1 star for price). ProTips: Wear a good... More
