Can't recommend this highly enough - we saw planets (including Mars and Saturn), a ring nebula, star nursery, binary star, star cluster, Andromeda nebula, had lots of constellations pointed out with lasers and the legends behind them explained. Also saw the International Space Station and several shooting stars! Thank you - it was just the right of information and never... More

This is the third time we have done the Evening Sky Tours in Sedona and each time is better. The star viewing, the information, and the small number of propel in the group allows for a wonderful experience. Our star guide for the night (David) was knowledgeable, helpful, very interactive with us. The fact that they make it comfortable with... More

We really enjoyed the star gazing experience. We saw Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Mercury, satellites, several star clusters and even 3 galaxies. Our guide was extremely knowledgable and entertaining. The only advice I have is wear a heavy coat! They provide blankets and coats, which I happily accepted! I was dressed warmly but oooo boy was it chilly out there. So... More

On our first night in Sedona, we decided to embark on this unique and well-orchestrated attraction. If the beautiful Southwestern sky wasn't enough of an attraction, our guide Niles brought us right into his "world of the universe". His demeanor was warm, his knowledge vast and he could have gone on for days. This is not to say that he... More

Of all of our week long adventures in Arizona, including Indian Reservations, Grand Canyon, Meteor Crater and Petrified Forest, this was my children's (ages 9 and 11) favorite activity. The tour felt personal and relaxing, the views, particularly of Jupiter and Mars were impressive, and the chairs, parkas, and blankets were much appreciated. We also happened to see 2 shooting...

I have always wanted to experience star gazing. Our "tour-guide" was Rick and he was great. I wil definitely do it again!

Very well organized. The night we went they had 2 or 3 astronomers so our group remained small (about 10 people). Our astronomer (whose name I think was Rick) was very well informed and superb at locating objects with his scope. Very friendly. Highly recommended, especially, if like us, you come from a light polluted area

This was like going to a planetarium to see a show, but it is outside and you are really there. We had a beautiful, though cold night. After meeting us at the parking area, we walked to the middle of the soccer chair where captain's chairs were set up, each with a blanket. They let us know that they had... More

My family of 5 booked a tour for once night. There was a larger than normal group due to previous cloudy nights. Because of the size of the group, one daughter and I were not able to view Saturn before it disappeared in the horizon. My wife sent an email to Cliff to let him know about it (sounds like... More

We went on this tour with our two teenagers. I probably would not take kids younger than 8. Matt was our tour guide and did a great job. He was personable, spoke clearly and had a wealth of information to share. The moon was out the night we went so it was hard to see the milky way but we... More
