Loved seeing the telescopes & our guide was thorough and knowledgable.

It was soooo cold and so much of the tour was outdoors, that the whole group we were with (all 5 of us) opted out half-way thru the tour, which was a shame, as it was interesting and the guide was great. Word of caution - don't go in the winter!
