This was one of the best tours we have ever done. Shawn was extremely knowledgeable and made us feel comfortable during the entire ride. Seeing the sunset from Mauna Kea was breathtaking, but even more so was the stargazing portion of the trip. My husband and I had never seen the milky way so clearly, and we certainly had never had pictures taken in front of it :) beautiful experience, you can’t miss it!

Amazing sunset and stargazing tour. Views that you can see in very few places on earth. They provided water, a gourmet veggie sandwich and hot chocolate/tea. Wes and Mr Aoki were very professional and took incredible pictures!

We truly enjoyed having Sean as our guide to share information during the trip, drive expertly, take photos, and educate us on the stars. He was very thoughtful and kind. The whole experience from the sunset to the stars was exceptional.
