Even though the tour had to be cancelled due to cloud cover, these people handled everything timely, professionally, and fairly. We will book this tour when we visit the area again.

It was cool, worth the money. Lucas makes it fun and provides very good information. He has several telescopes and takes the time to explain what each does best.
