The Mauna Kea summit view is breathtaking. Even the drive up is amazing. What is even better is the star gazing after. The skies are so clear, you feel like your in on of those dome light amphitheaters. SO MANY STARS! You can see the Milky Way, Andromeda, the ISS all with the naked eye! Dinner was delicious and desserts w/hot cocoa really topped off the night.

It is an amazing and unforgettable tour! It was super cold up on the summit but the view totally worth it. The jacket they provided is basically for wind and rain, so better to prepare clothing layers, gloves and hat to keep you warm. Due to winter time, our dinner was a little early at 3:30pm. Bring some snacks if possible, as the tour ends around 9:30pm. The tour guide Nick is very knowledgeable and wiling to share. He controls the time really well and knows how to avoid the crowd. We all enjoy the time seeing the nature from the ice age and how incredible about the super sunset, the cloud, and of course, the hundreds of thousands of stars!!

Incredibly good! Gene was so knowledgeable that I felt like I was dealing with a guy with multiple Ph.D.s - geology, history, archaeology, astronomy, etc. Definitely give that man a raise! The trip itself was wonderful. I saw Saturn for the first time. I also enjoyed seeing all the observatories and hearing about the issues involved in the protest against the new telescope. Thank you!
