I have this booked for 5 people, I really wonder if this is worth the cost, since its $75 per person (x5). I’m wondering since we will be up at Roosevelt for 2 days if we shouldn’t just try this on our own??? Can someone who has taken the tour tell me if it is worth it? Oh plus we have a very late night since we are doing a stargazing tour. Are we trying to do too much in one day? Thanks.
