Our star guide was David who was extremely knowledgeable and provided a unique learning experience. Gave me a whole new meaning as to all there is to focus on each time I look up toward the sky on a beautiful clear evening. I've been to Sedona many times, but this was my first time with the stargazing tour and certainly... More

This was a fantastic experience! A must see in Sedona. Knowledgable star guides who know their stuff and make it really interesting. Well done! Easy to find, blankets and chairs, with great views of so many stars.

Although the idea seems great, the lecture and telescope were only above average. If weather is right you can see many stars, meteors and satellites.

At the recommendation of a staff member, we drove to the far end of Enchantment Resort for a spectacular view of the Milky Way and a sky full of stars like you rarely get to experience at home. Breathtaking!

Sedona Star Gazing is a 1st class operation. You show up at the assigned location and are guide in the dark to the telescopes. Your "Star Guides" brief you on what all you will see and then you view the wonderful sights through the telescopes. If you are really lucky an meteorite or satellite will pass over. The "Star Guides"... More

It was amazingly dark, so could see so much more than on the east coast where the high humidity and light polution hide the Milky Way. Our "astronomer" had a large telescope that made Saturn's rings and at least two of it's moons visible. He did a great job of pointing out and describing different constilations and zeroed in on...

My wife and I went star gazing our second night in Sedona, and it was a good way to spend the evening. We enjoyed the star gazing experience very much. The guide was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable, and she had a really cool green laser pointer that reminded me of a light saber from Star Wars (I want one!). This... More

I booked this tour on the advice of my TA peeps as I so often do. We were given explicit directions to the site and we decided to do a drive by during the day because Sedona really is that dark at night. The sight was exactly where they said. It was a beautiful evening and they had provided chairs... More

We were amazed with the view of the Super Moon over the red rocks. We caught a view of Venus (Morning Star) and watched the sunrise. Remarkable!

We have never seen so many stars, so close! We couldn't believe the brightness and the beautiful patterns and figures painted in the sky. Made us appreciate how beautiful this world is!
