A Journey Through the Cosmos

Our tours are designed for people who are just starting out in astronomy or simply curious about what lies beyond our planet. We believe that a developed mind, regardless of age, can find immense joy and wonder in exploring the universe. That's why our night tours are perfect for families, couples, and individuals looking to embark on an astronomical adventure.


The AstroTours Experience

  1. Engaging Astronomy Talks: Each tour begins with a 45-minute astronomy talk by our professional astronomers. They're not just experts in their field; they're passionate communicators who can make complex concepts accessible and exciting. You’ll hear about everything from the life cycles of stars to the myths and legends written in the constellations.

  2. Hands-On Telescope Time: The real magic begins when you get to peer through our large telescopes, ranging from 8 to 16 inches. Witness the craters of the moon, the rings of Saturn, or even distant galaxies, all with your own eyes. It’s one thing to learn about these wonders, but it’s another to see them directly.

  3. A Tour of the Night Sky: Using lasers and star maps, our guides will take you on a tour of the night sky. You’ll learn how to identify constellations, understand why stars appear to move across the sky, and even pick up some tips on star navigation.

Customizing Your Experience

At AstroTours.org, we go the extra mile to personalize your experience. Celebrating an anniversary? We’ll share the romantic tale of Mizar and Alcor. Visiting on your birthday? Let us show you a star as many light-years away as the years you’re celebrating. Our aim is to make your stargazing experience unforgettable.


Learning and Discovery

Our educational approach ties astronomy to folklore, making it interesting, memorable, and educational. We offer hands-on approaches where we show you how to observe the sky in a scientific way and teach you to use telescopes. Our youth programs are more interactive, driven by questions and answers, and we focus on showing the main highlights through the telescope.


Community and Environment

AstroTours.org is committed to community engagement and environmental sustainability. We participate in local community events and practice Leave No Trace principles in all our tours. By encouraging carpooling and using energy-efficient equipment, we strive to minimize our environmental impact.
