The viewing in the big dome but noting very special with the tour. Parking was horrible and we were forced to park outside in the venue.
icon Response from Host , Nov 2021
Hello Charmaine, I'm sorry you did not enjoy your experience. The parking can certainly be difficult at the Observatory and we make every effort to let people know this in advance. It is out of our control when they close the top deck and have to reroute down the hill so all we can advise guests is to take the shuttle and/or ride sharing app to avoid this. Despite your being over an hour late, I hope you enjoyed Estevan and the Planetarium show while you were there. Best Regards, Dara

What a great evening. Estevan was awesome. He is very knowledgeable and definitely is comfortable here. I would highly recommend! Plan around their hours though. Was only open for the weekend!

The tour guide was very knowledgeable and patient. It was a very interesting tour. The only note is be careful when you book as some high frequency times like the holidays may cause a lot of traffic and delays getting up to the Observatory.
