This star tour was unbelievable. I did it at the Ritz Carlton and Ben was directing the tour. His knowledge was incredible but he didn't bore you with facts. His enthusiasm and passion was infectious. The views through the telescope were incredible! Also showed us the Milky Way galaxy and various constellations with just the naked eye. Also they take...

This was an event set up by my employer while we were staying at the Ritz-Carlton Dove Mountain. Ben, the owner, brought the telescope and set everything up at the resort and all our group had to do was show up. He was super prepared and had such interesting tidbits to share with us about his passion for astronomy and... More

Awesome! Astonishing! Amazing! Beautiful! Powerful! I can't find words that are big enough to describe this wonderful adventure. We had rented a vacation house for a family reunion and this was the hit of the week. It was easy to arrange, Benjamin arrived on time, took great care that each member of our group saw the sights clearly, and explained... More

Spectacular! We couldn't say enough good things about our experience. Benjamin is so personable, hospitable, and accommodated all our questions. He thoroughly enjoys what he does, is very knowledgeable, and does a good job of communicating to the astronomically challenged individual :) Well worth staying up for after bedtime. We're looking forward to doing this again in a few months!

Benjamin provided a wonderful star-filled evening for three generations of my family ranging from my 5 year old daughter to my 78 year old father-in-law. Benjamin combines an incredible depth of knowledge and love of astronomy, a warm and engaging personality, and a talent for sharing this with each person on their own terms. This was among our favorite and... More

This is a must do when in Tucson. Our family was visiting the Ritz-Carlton Dove Mountain and wanted to find some fun things for the family to do while in Tucson. My husband found this option and we're all so glad he did. Ben was very knowledgable and interesting to listen to. The two hours flew by! He was able... More

Hubby planned this as a surprise during an Anniversary trip in JANUARY 2015. Ben was amazing. He brought the telescope, chairs, blankets, and hot chocolate for our comfort on a cold, winter's night. Ben's astronomy knowledge is astronomical, yet he is extremely personable, friendly, and funny. This was one of the very best experiences in my life. Arizona Star Tours... More

My husband and I shared this magical experience with his parents and our 11 year old son. I can't think of anything we have done as a family that was more inspiring than this tour of the universe. Ben is a patient and incredibly knowledgeable teacher, but he also left plenty of room for our questions and curiosity to drive... More

I'm not sure that I can add much additional praise than given in the other reviews. My family has already declared this the highlight of our vacation and we are only 3 days into an 8-day trip. This is both education and entertainment and worth every penny. Ben's absolute enthusiasm and seemingly infinite knowledge kept my 2 teenage daughters full... More

Thanks Ben! You allowed for our family to see and experience many wonderful things in the night sky. I was blown away by the amount of stars you can see in Tucson. Saturn was my children's favorite object, you could even see the rings.
