  • This tour will forever hold a special place in our memories. Jorge's passion, knowledge and experience made for a wonderful and intimate night of observing the heavens. The sky in the Atacama desert is impressive enough but it was taken to a higher level with Jorge's explanations of how to properly appreciate the night sky followed by the use of some quality telescopes. Finally, it was the small details (blankets, hot beverages and personal gifts) that really sets this tour a part from the others. Please, do not leave San Pedro de Atacama without doing this tour.
  • Jorge is extremely knowledgeable and friendly. It might seem pricey, but it's worth every peso.
  • Great experience for a very cheap price. The stars are very clear and the instructor knowledgeable, looking through the telescopes was great. Also my girlfriend accidentally wheeled the telescope a solid 90 degrees when the instructor said beforehand "do not touch the telescope". His reaction to this desperately unfortunate mishap was good, he didn't mind! Good bloke, sound.
  • Got to see saturn and Jorge is really knowledgeable
  • Jorge Corante gave us an astonishing class on astronomy, and showed us the beautiful skies of Atacama on a few different telescopes. It’s definitely worth the price!
