My second experience - first experience was cut short because of cloudy conditions. However, the guide was amazing and tried hard to give us as much information as possible. Friendly and obviously an expert. Second experience, skies cleared and had amazing views (but not the Milky Way). Guide was robotic and sounded like he was reading a script. Knowledgeable, but...

Came to Sedona for our anniversary and to see the sights. Chose Evening Sky Tours for our first night out and it was amazing! Our guide was very knowledgeable and didn't rush us at all. Highly recommend this for anyone interested in learning more about the night skies.

Even with the super moon (30% brighter as we learned) blanking out most of the starfield this was still an excellent tour. Great mix of scientific information and history as well as an opportunity to appreciate the beauty of various stars, binary clusters, nebulae, etc. Very clear directions, easy to do. Important to dress warmly.

Just got back from this experience and it was beyond fantastic! Wasn't quite sure what to expect but it was spectacular. It was well organized and loaded with interesting information and sights. We had 10 people in our group and Wes was our guide. He explained everything very well and answered all of our questions in a way that helped... More

Didn't realize that Sedona had reached 'dark sky' status. The sky was so clear in July 2016. Our guide Dave was great. The telescope was a 12" with strong magnification. A well done professional tour. It is held at locations like a high school soccer field. Red lights and your guide get you in place. They provide chairs and blankets... More

It was about a 20-25 minute drive from our hotel in Sedona to the site, and Cliff sent us detailed directions. We were in a group of 9 with Dave as our leader. We parked our cars in the dirt lot and Dave walked us over to the soccer field where he had his telescope, chairs, and blankets set up.... More

This was an incredible experience and definitely a highlight of our trip. Our guide, Niles, was extremely knowledgeable and made the stories he told of the stars, constellations, and galaxies very interesting for adults and kids alike. He had his own humongous 15 inch telescope and was able to find some of the most distant galaxies for us in seconds.... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stargazing event. Everything went according to plan. We had a nice clear sky and David was extremely knowledgeable. It was cold so when they say dress warm with hat and gloves they mean it!!! They provide cotton blankets but a wool throw would work better so if you have one take it along. Very enjoyable evening...
