Review of: Astronomy Tour
One of the greatest experiences of my life. Luke is brilliant and he does a great job explaining everything about the stars and planets. He was super accommodating as well with our schedule and was fantastic at making sure we got to experience exactly what we wanted to. Seeing the planets up close for the first time with my own eyes brought me to tears. If you want an experience you’ll never forget and love asking questions about the universe this is the tour for you!

Tour operator was a no-show. We tried calling while we were waiting at the specified location but there Was no answer. Nobody ever called us to follow-up. Not sure if we are going to get a refund from the vendor or if we will have to challenge the charge with our credit card company.

Response from AstroTou, non-operational at Elevated Astronomy Tours
Responded Sep 23, 2020
Please do not book this [Deleted] tour as it is currently non-operational This drone experience has been closed to comply with Colorado's COVID orders since March. Trip Advisor has refused to remove it from their site after many requests from me to do so. I'm sorry this has caused a lot of confusion I hope Trip Advisor issued you a refund (I do not have this product payment linked to me so your transaction is exclusively with Trip Advisor) let me know if there's anything I can do to help at Luke@AstroTours.org or 303.324.5831.

Review of: Astronomy Tour
There was a little mix up between the time TripAdvisor had posted and the time the astronomy tour actually started (I am assuming in the winter they do the tours earlier), so when I arrived at 8pm the tour was just ending. Luke stayed for an extra hour in the freezing cold to go over everything he does with his normal tours for just the two of us was which really nice of him. He had 5 telescopes and binoculars to look through and covered a ton of information!

Review of: Astronomy Tour
I took this tour because I wanted to see the night sky in a recent Colorado trip, compared to star gazing at home in Florida, with so much light pollution. Luke was a knowledge and enthusiastic guide for the evening. He had at least seven telescopes set up before I arrived, and had seating, hot beverages and snacks set out. He encouraged everyone to look through each scope and explained what they should be seeing. He had a short presentation while we sat and drank cocoa. Throughout the evening he realigned the scope for different views, and let folks move them around some themselves. It was like having your best astrophysicist buddy show you the night sky.

Review of: Astronomy Tour
If you are a neophyte this is perfect for you. The “hippie” guide (his words, not mine) was so knowledgeable and humbly passionate about the solar system that we left smarter and in awe. Looking up will never be the same. Dress warmly and bring a blanket if possible because sitting and listening is part of the two hours. Looking through the different telescopes and learning about them was great. We took Lyft and were luck enough to get a ride back to town with other tour people. It’s certainly a little remote so be sure to take your directions. It’s a very interesting tour!
