This was a once in a lifetime experience. We were able to see with bare eyes the Milky Way. The emotions I felt that night were endless and I cannot thank you enough. The person who hosted the stargazing was so knowledgeable and very pleasant to hear.

Such a fun, cool experience. We were just expecting someone pointing out all the stars in the sky (which are way more than what we get to see at home), and we got so much more! Telescopes, terrific guides, and great things to look at, including the rings of Saturn and the Orion nebulae. A great way to spend an evening!

Not often you can see the night sky so clear. This experience was tremendous in where you feel as if you're in an actual planetarium. Great presentation and hands-on experience from the organizers of this tour. Get the use of very powerful telescopes to see more up close on planets and stars. Recommended that you bring heavy jackets, scarves, gloves, and winter hat during fall and winter months, as the elevation and temperature drop is quite significant.

We thoroughly enjoyed this experience, from the most incredible night sky we’ve ever seen to the knowledgeable astronomer guides who taught us a ton and left us with much to think about and talk about to the amazing telescopes and binoculars we got to use. It was almost 10 degrees cooler there than in Sedona so when they say dress warmly, wear some seriously warm clothes!! Highly recommend this!

Pros: friendly and knowledgeable tour guides. Interesting set up. Nice time just looking up at the sky since the area is very dark and clear sky (a soccer field). Cons: Way too expensive for what you end up seeing in the telescopes. Looked absolutely nothing like the photos they have on their website. We were actually told by the tour guide that the photos are NASA photoshopped. Basically, all you see are fuzzy white dots in the telescope. Overall: Set your expectations very low and don’t look at the photos on their website. Expect to see tiny dots through the telescope. Very overpriced. Better off doing a jeep tour or helicopter tour.
