We really enjoyed the tour and were lucky to see both Saturn & Jupiter. George was a great host, providing blankets, hot chocolate and marshmallows to roast, while being informative and entertaining. Nice to have a great photo to keep as well - thank you! Would definitely recommend!

A nights sky

George gave a very informative tour but not so much to bore you a relaxed feeling amongst a group of strangers and the hot chocolate and toasted marshmallows was a nice touch I would recommend this tour to others
