    From the moment we were greeted by Hiro to the majestic sunset vista on Mauna Kea to the sublime awe of standing in total darkness to witness the Milky Way and myriad stars, this was an excellent and HIGHLY recommended experience. Hiro is a tremendous guide and we had a wonderful time. Hot cocoa is a plus! Please don't miss out on this opportunity.

    Such a fun night

    The tour guide, Hiro, was so informative and a super fun guy. He kept checking up on us regularly to make sure we were doing okay with the increasing altitude. He ensured we all got a good amount of photos with the sunset and the stars. The food was also quite tasty and the hot drinks at the end of the night were the perfect accompaniment to the stargazing experience.

    We LOVED everything about this trip! Several convenient pick up locations, a wonderful driver/guide, surprisingly delicious sandwiches for dinner and the views from the summit are unbelievable. Our driver Shawn was so gracious and accommodating. He took lots of professional quality photos of our group at sunset and during the star gazing segment too. Seeing Jupiter and Saturn through the telescope was an added bonus too!
