  • The drive was amazing definitely worth it during the day. Wife and I went up there around 4:00 PM wanted to see a show in the sky at night. No matter what it was $55 a person which included a dinner. Wish they would have a deal where you could pay for what you see. This place is very serious. You will have to drive back to Tucson that night which is about Close to an hour Drive. I would definitely go back. It could be really romantic.
  • Easy walking. Great gift shop. Very educational. Friendly guides. Make sure you have a reservation for an evening tour. Take warm clothes.
  • This is one of my favorite experiences I’ve had, I highly recommend the night programs! We did the Dark Sky Discovery program which was smaller and absolutely fantastic. Sara was a great guide. Bring extra layers!
  • My family and I attended a nighttime program, Dark Sky Discovery, and it was absolutely awesome! The staff was engaging, kind, and knowledgeable, and they guided us through the program from start to finish. Their programs are run efficiently, with skill and purpose, and I was very impressed. Expectations exceeded for sure!
  • It is hard to beat the sunsets of Tucson Arizona. The big skies and layers of mountains make for a winning combination.
