We actually didn't get to go out for this tour (due to weather), but I wanted to post to acknowledge the great customer service. We booked this tour months in advance, but they had to cancel due to anticipated overcast skies and the threat of thunderstorms. The weather apps were calling for clear skies but the Star Gazing Team used... More

Our family of 4 really enjoyed this outing. We met at a high school soccer field (way out back seemingly in the middle of nowhere) at dark. About 30 people attended -- they broke us up into groups of 10, each with a telescope and a night-sky specialist. Our astronomer first showed us the visible constellations (pointing them out with...

Wonderful people, exceptional knowledge, great equipment. They make sure every customer gets exceptional views and answer every question asked. I was skeptical when my wife suggested this outing, but had the most enjoyable evening of our numerous trips to Sedona. This is a MUST experience if you are visiting Sedona. We experienced, saw, and learned things we never knew existed... More

Those red rocks all throughout and about the Grand Canyon are breathtaking. Sedona is a great city with lovely red rocks throughout. God's creations are undoubtedly the greatest. Walked through the city of Sedona. Great shopping and restaurants. Will definitely go back. Kids loved it.

Seeing Saturn and Jupiter (and its Galilean moons) with my own eyeballs brought tears to my eyes. It was also the first time I saw the Milky Way stretched across the sky - it was that dark! We looked at planets, galaxies, star nurseries, deep space objects, and so much more! We also learned a lot from our very wise... More

This is a must for every person, to widen their field of vision about this planet we are on. The two people who took me out on separate evenings to "star gaze" were professional, well-informed, exhilarating in the depth and breathe of their knowledge.

The star gazing tour was my husband's idea. I went along just to keep the peace, but came away in awe! Our guide pointed out constellations that I had always heard about, but could never figure out when looking at the night sky. A telescope was used to view various stars and planets. My favorite was Saturn, I could see... More

My husband found this as a birthday present. It seemed like something totally fun and different to do especially since star gazing is a total impossibility where we live. Rick was our guide, a ex NASA employee. He was such an amazing teacher with a wry sense of humor. We loved every thing about this tour. Highlight was definitely seeing... More

Our guide was Trevor and she was very knowledgable and had a good sense of humor. We learned so much and got to view Mars, Saturn, Jupiter, the moon, most constellations and lots of star clusters. Would definitely recommend this to anyone visiting Sedona.
