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.

I never would have thought to search for something like this, but when it popped up on TripAdvisor, I knew it was something my husband and I had to do. It was well worth it, and we plan to go again on our next visit. Our knowledgeable guide told us the sky changes with the season. Living near a large... More

I have always wanted to learn more about the stars. This event was more than I could've imagined. I got to see Mars, Jupiter, & the rings of Saturn. I learned so much about scientific facts and theories. My guide, Wes, was a wealth of knowledge. Plenty of time for everyone to see stars, objects, and planets through the telescope.... More

My wife signed us up for this experience because we are both fascinated with the sky and outer space. It was incredible. The Sedona sky is perfect for star gazing and our tour guide Wes did a fantastic job. He was incredibly knowledgeable and we both learned so much from him. We saw Jupiter, Mars, Saturn, tons of constellations, the... More

My husband and I have been to Sedona several times. I often look at this tour and for the first time decided to book it along with two other couples. We all had a fabulous time and learned so much information about the night sky! The Sedona sky is so dark and I felt we were getting a view of... More
