“A must do while in Tekapo”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 February 2014 via mobile

We organised this tour at the head office on the day, and were told of their guarantees if weather doesn't allow for good sightseeing. The company is very thorough and lenient. We were picked up that night in a minibus and taken to the observatory. We are the only ones allowed up there at that time as the road is closed to the general public at night.
The guides are very knowledgable but talk using language that everyone can understand. The night sky is so clear here and it was definitely worth it.

“Sucks! Not worth it”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 December 2012

We joined the sunset tours in the evening and we are supposed to see the star gazing. We have purchased the ticket earlier but the sky was so cloudy that day. When we got up, we can't see anything even though the sky has turned into dark. The moon and all the stars are all covered up by the clouds. We were only being toured and briefed about the stars and equipment and nothing else you can see from the sky. The tour is real sucks and not worth for the money at all. With this kind of price, i think we can go for other more interesting activities in NZ. They should offer a refund option for this tour.
