This is such a great activity while in Sedona. We went to the 10pm tour and the sky was perfectly clear. Our astronomer guides were extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic about answering everyone’s questions. We looked at Jupiter and several star clusters and nebulae in addition to a guided tour of the constellations.

It was a chilly night, but chairs and blankets were provided for everyone. We will definitely book another tour next time we’re in Sedona!

What a suprise. Didn't know what to expect , but we were all blown away. We learned so much from our expert astronomer Niles. A beautiful show from Mother Nature. I was awestruck!

We evaluated the moon and chose to star gaze our first night in Sedona. The directions that are provided are good, and it IS a ways out into the country, but oh, so worth it. Blankets, chairs and parkas are provided, which was a good thing! We dressed warmly, but it got colder than we expected. Each group had up to 10 people, and were scattered around the field. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable, and answered many questions. He used a laser pointer, so we could locate what celestial bodies he was discussing, and we all took turns looking through his BIG telescope. We were fortunate to see the US Space Station, and a piece of space junk! This was a great event for all ages, including the elementary aged children in attendance. Highly recommended!

Tried to take the Sedona Stargazing tour twice, but it was “wash-out”. Even though we started the tour and guide was pointing out some stars and the moon, they decided it was wash and refunded our money. I thought the tour was well organized and professionally managed, the speed of the refund really impressed me too. Next time we visit Sedona, I will Definitely try them again.

Unfortunately, we only had one night in Sedona and the weather did not agree with our plans for star gazing. Cliff at Sedona Star Gazing was very prompt in letting me know they would be cancelling the tour that evening and gave me options to reschedule or refund. His attention and promptness at contacting us let me know early enough to make other plans for the evening. The next time we are in Sedona we will be sure to reschedule - can't wait and so sorry we missed out this time!
