We started operating in San Pedro in 2003 and now have by far the largest public observatory in South America, with 11 telescopes between 20 to 72cm diameter. Most other tours in Chile use telescopes which are 3 to 4 times less luminous. We offer...more

My wife and I went on a tour of Santiago in an air conditioned van. Our guide, Carol, could not have been more helpful and informative. She was very skilled in blending in modern and current points of interest with detailed history of the often...More
After checking availability on this tour, I submitted my credit card and it was charged, I went and booked the flights to
mesh with the tour and then was notified an hour later that the tour is not available any more. Stuck with my flight...More
Don't be fooled, this is a tourist trap.
Your "tour" starts with 30 other people in a bus, you'll be driven about 10 minutes out of town where there are several other groups doing the exact same "tour" thing and then it will dawn on...More
This tour is decent enough if you set your sights (i.e., temper your expectations) correctly. Some of the 2.5 hours includes the bus ride from and to town--fair enough. However, Space tours is actually running three tour groups at the telescopes at the same time....More
If you are new to Santiago or want to find out more on this city under comfort & security, this tour is the best option. This tour is one of the few tours that offer visit to San Cristobal hill. And what I enjoyed the...More
You see the heavens as you most likely have never been able to back home under skies with light pollution. A guide gives an entertaining briefing, after which you view various items through their preset telescopes. If you arrange with the office ahead of time,...More
Our guide, Claudio was on time,..exactly @ 3 PM. He was very fluent in English. We had a good experience of the city history. Very Informative. Was able to share the architecture of the buildings and provided some interesting information.
Would have preferred that it...More
We know little about space but decided to check out this tour as there is so little light pollution in San Pedro and it’s a popular tour.
The first booking was cancelled due to cloud cover, we appreciated that Space take it seriously as we...More

Sorry, I seldomly go on the tripadvisor website.... The regular tours are a maximum of 24 persons, and a minimum of 8. On special occasion (private tours for enterprises) we have made tours for 80 persons, but these are private tours. We have also made tours for one person... We have ten telescopes, from 20cm to 72cm diameter (i.e. the largest public telescope in the southern hemisphere). We have by far the best equipment in Chile. Telescopes are one thing, eyepieces are also very important, and the price range from lousy 50 dollars eyepieces to the top quality ones we use, which are up to 800 dollars each eyepiece. Since I don't go too often on the tripadvisor site, might as well say that we are building a 114cm telescope which should be operational in 2016.
