Sorry for the bad review but I had to balance out the othere reviews that were really inaccurated. The cost of the is is $50 soles each. This is a privated business with a homemade planitarium and really no observatory (they have 2 telescopes & 1 binoculars). The story telling took up most of the time and was not that... More

An amazing little adventure. They meet you in town, minibus you there and then give you a little information about the incan cosmovision and archaeoastronomy. I loved the stories of the black llama and the chakanas as well as learning about the role the stars played on Incan life. It was popularist rather than academic which meant it was of... More

We were very lucky that Ana Maria was so accommodating over the Christmas period when their third party booking system accidentally allowed our booking on a night they had training. They had no idea we were awaiting collection, but dropped everything when we called to ensure we didn't miss out. She is very passionate about the history of her country... More

Interesting talk in English about astronomy in S Hemisphere and info about Inca astronomy. As it is rainy season, we knew it might be cloudy, but the super-enthusiastic astronomer still managed to find us the Andromeda galaxy and 7 Sisters constellation despite the persistent cloud cover. The transport to and from Cusco centre was quick and safe. Maybe a bit... More

The information we were given was great and the presentation was awesome. However, since it is a planetarium, if you cannot view the stars at all due to clouds, a reduced rate should apply. Otherwise it was very good.

If you are someone who wonders about the stars, then this is something to take a look at. the staff in this place are quite knowledgeable of the southern hemisphere skies. We go to see many planets and constellations that cannot be seen in North America. Go here before you do any hike to the mountains. It will get you... More

This is a project created by a local family of Cusco, perfect for amateur astronomous and curious people about the southern sky. The session takes about 2 hours and is divided into three parts: Light explanation about cosmic Inka culture, constellation observation on the dome and star observation on the external telescopes. On the night I visited the Planetarium the... More

The staff is extremely friendly and knowledgeable about astronomy. After learning about the Southern Hemisphere stars in the Planetarium, head outside to see the stars live and in person. During our visit, we got to see Mars and Venus, along with a host of constellations.
