I really enjoyed this tour, the Canadian guy is very nice and knowledgeable. Make sure you book in advance. The first part would've been much nicer if we could've been laying down looking at the sky instead of standing still.

I loved the tour. The scenery with the dark mountains, the telescopes and the endless Atacama sky was simply perfect. The Canadian guide did a great job explaining the basics of astronomy and showing the most important objects in the night sky. On the other...More

Hi, I'll be in San Pedro between March 23-27. Just checked a moon calendar and the 23rd will be a full-moon night. Will you be open by the end of week (eg. March 26th)? Best, Ilan
