    I was picked up by Kylie on a pretty cloudy Dunedin evening and couldn't believe I was the only one booked on the trip! So refreshing to know that this company don't have a minimum number in order for the trip to go ahead. The drive out to where the stargazing was to take place

    Kia ora Shona! Thanks so much for your review. I had a fantastic time talking and getting to know you, and am glad you enjoyed the experience despite the sky not doing what we wanted. Hope you get to make it back this way again some day! Nga mihi The Horizon Tours Whanau, (family)

    This tour is the only of it's kind in Dunedin. The guides (Kylie and Lydon) were very knowledgeable but lighthearted and funny so learning the cultural and science was fun. Small groups of less than 8 means it is personalized. There are lots of small thoughtful details which

    Kia ora Jac_Lovett, Thank you so much for your review. We really appreciate you taking the time. Lyndon and I had a great time with you both out under the not so starry sky! We really hope you can come back and see what our skies look like on a non moonlight, non-cloudy evening! Sorry your trip to the airport wasn't ideal... next time, we'll just make it an all nighter!

    Kia ora RobJT20, Thanks so much for your review! We love showing people our night sky, and introducing them to a different way of viewing the stars. We are all about the service that we offer our guests and it is also great to see that people enjoy the comforts we provide. Hope to see you back soon! Nga mihi, The Horizon Tours Whanau, (family)

    A very special experience (including the warm blankets!). I learned so much from Kylie and Lyndon about the constellations and Maori legends and viewing the planets through the telescopes was awesome. Kylie's songs were beautiful, haunting and an honour to hear. Thank-you so

    Kia ora JWMelbourne, Thank you so much for your review and kind words. We had a great time with you beneath our southern skies, and I am so happy you got to see then looking stunning! We had a great time with you on both our tours, and wish you all the best. Since your tour, I have had a deeper appreciation of our cloud formations too! Nga mihi The Horizon Tours Whanau, (family)

    Lyndon and Kylie are delightful, generous and very knowledgeable guides to the night sky and local wildlife. Loved Kylie's Maori starlight navigation stories, as well as her beautiful songs! Lyndon's bountiful knowledge of the stars and Otago peninsula, not to mention his Dad

    Kia ora Savvy, Thank you so much for your review. We had a great time with your family. Lyndon was pleased to find a kindred spirit as well, and I have heard more dad jokes lately than I have since we started! Hope the Australian leg of your trip went well.
