Our young family enjoyed the star gazing tour lead by Trevor. She was very knowledgeable and entertaining to keep our children's (9 and 12) interest. We couldn't believe how many objects we could see with our eyes following her laser pointer and her high powered telescope. Trevor was very concerned with our experience by constantly asking if we could see... More

Just looking up in the night skies of Sedona was amazing. The skies on the first night were clear and you could see a multitude of stars. You can't beat what a night sky in the mountains looks like when the weather is clear. It is magic.

Even though our resort offered a stargazing activity we decided to go out with Sedona Star Gazing. They provide instructions how to get to their gazing location in the Oak Creek area. Our group that night was large and split into two. We had a wonderfully clear night. We were able to see several planets through the big telescope they... More

Worth it. Our son was hoping for a UFO, but we ended up with memories we will cherish forever. Because the entire town seems to shut down soon after dusk, the views are unbeatable.

Richard was our guide for the stargazing and he was personable and extremely knowledgable. We couldn't have had a better night. It was clear with a warm breeze. Seats and blankets were put out for us so we could sit an lean back as we got a tutorial on the constellations. We also saw a lot of shooting stars and... More

My husband and I were in Sedona on June 16th and saw the stars with Trevor. We are from Connecticut and have never seen so many stars! We had a mixed group of adults and children and we all had a great time. Trevor was great! She had us all engaged and took her time showing us planets, etc. We... More
