  • Great experience. Friendly, knowledgeable and enthusiastic staff. Highly recommended
  • Staff are super friendly. Cowan's night view tour was nice there was many stars to see.
  • Fantastic experience of star gazing. Hearty and smart staff
  • It was disappointing, we ended the “tour” within an hour and saw a couple galaxies and the moon. Look at the stars with some binoculars or visit your local observatory- save your time and money.
  • Our guides were so enthusiastic that you couldn't help but be caught up in it. And now, i will look at the night sky with absolute awe. Thank you for sharing the joy!
