It's a fantastic thing to do. Gazing at the sky through the telescope and listening to the fascinating stories Alex has to tell in the middle of nowhere is quite magic. This is not about star signs but galaxies, time travel and stars - a very precious moment of our vacations! Thank you Alex

Alex was perfect. We had the best time. Alex really inspired our daughters (15 & 12). Very educational and definitely worth your time.

My husband arranged to do this for us and another couple and it was more than we could have hoped for. Alex is amazing. There were others in the group but it was a nice size group and everyone had time to look through the telescope each time Alex had something to show us. He is excellent at what he... More

This is a "Must Do" if you visit Moab. Alex provides a very educational and fun evening of sky watching. The Milky Way, stars, planets, galaxies, and even satellites may be seen. He explains things in simple terms so you don't need to be a scientist to communicate with him. Great for young and old. Call him and take the... More

Despite being the end of the season and very cold at night, Alex still took us out and did the full stargazing programme. He was a wonderfully insightful guide through the night sky, not only showing us the basics but also touching on the science (and culture) of astronomy. We had a brilliant time, which more than lived up to... More

We didn't have a lot of time in Moab, but we did have a free night and I decided to book it with Alex gazing at the stars. First, Alex is extremely professional, knowledge, and flexible. Our arrival in Moab was delayed a day and luckily there was room the following evening so Alex changed our tour last minute. We... More

I took my nephew to Utah to explore the canyon country of southern and eastern Utah and we were not disappointed. One of the highlights was certainly our few hours spent with Alex. In addition to being very knowledgeable about the night sky, he was kind, funny and helpful. His telescope was top notch and he was patient with some... More

We booked this tour based on trip advisor, and the reviews were right on the money! We had a great time out in the desert with Alex, listening to him talk about the stars! This is not your average star talk - you won't hear the bottled stories of the constellations on this tour. You are getting pictures of the... More

Three generations of our family, ages 4 to retirement, went out with Alex last week to view the stars. We all live in Grand or San Juan County, so are not new to the stunning night sky. Alex's presentation is phenomenal! He chats as he sets up his equipment, engaging all of us (additional 5 from another group) in learning... More

We followed Alex to a star-gazing area near Canyonlands where, using a digital reflector telescope, he showed us planets, galaxies and stars. We time-traveled millions of years and saw the Milky Way with our naked eyes. It was a beautiful clear night and our guide did a great job of weaving an educational session with the beauty and wonder of... More
