A must do in Santiago!

Our driver Janine was very cheerful and a great guide and assisted our host at the observatory bringing tasty snacks and drinks. The experience was different than I pictured but extremely enjoyed. I had expected a facility on a mountain, where this was a collection of many different telescopes in a private residence. We were able to see solar flares thru a solar scope prior to sundown! Then viewed various stars as they first appeared at twilight and more as it proceeded to darkness. Our host was very informative and energetic! We are very happy to have selected this tour!

To the moon and back

When I first booked this trip I thought it was quite expensive. But it was worth every penny. Travel arrangements were spot on. Was surprised it was in someones back garden, but what a back garden! The host was welcoming on arrival and treated us like one of the family. Arrived in daylight so started off looking at solar flares which we had never seen before. Moved on to daylight stars before the sun finally set revealing an incredible array of stars and planets in the night sky. All viewed through a dazzling array of telescopes. Then the full moon appeared and, just WOW! All this was achieved with the help of our wonderful host, who took the time, effort and obvious joy to explain the heavens. The evening was just like a group of old friend getting together for wine and nibbles and incredible views. Thank you for making our last night in Santiago so unforgettable.

If you are going to be in Santiago, do this. Period. A once in a lifetime experience you will never forget. Even if you have no interest in stars or planets you will love it. You will meet an incredibly charming and entheusiastic host, who takes care of your every need, is ebuillent and effusive and full of joy and wonder. Really, just do it. It may seem expensive, but cheaper than disneyland, and moch more memorable.
