I absolutely loved my experience here.. The use of the lazer pointer to support the education about the stars was fabulous. If the chairs provided had been angled a bit...i would have been quite happy lying back and listening to more information about the stars. It was just a really enjoyable evening. My one wee recommendation is....it would have been good to incorporate Matariki into the talk. The crew provide full length down coats to keep you warm and snug. Highly recommended.

I really enjoyed this tour. Our guide Joseph (apologies if I’ve misremembered your name!) was entertaining and informative. The warm jacket was very welcome. My only criticism is that I would have liked to look at more ‘objects’ through the telescope; we only looked at four.

An insightful exploration of the night sky. Our guide was knowledgeable and enthusiastic. It was good to be in a small group and to have the chance to look through the telescope. Wear warm layers under the supplied coat if you feel the cold!

Great experience to see star gazing. Beautiful view and very clear explanation. Enjoyed so much. Lucky the weather is the best in last couple of month. Very cold on the top of the hill. Must wear a lot of warm jacket.
