Wonderful experience

The guide George is exactly the person you want showing you around the night sky. He's funny, engaging, and knowledgable. It was VERY cold, so the fire and marshmallows were a treat. Thank you to George for a great evening.

Wonderful experience with a knowledgeable guide

George was a great guide with a balance of humour and in depth knowledge to really share a passion for the southern night sky. He is a wiz with the telescope finding objects with ease. His enthusiasm is infectious. Once The Star gazing is done he takes a great photo of your group before we all toasted marshmallows. A great evening with a great man.

MUST DO TOUR!

George was a fantastic tour guide! If you are in Tekapo, this is a must do! The small group aspect of it was awesome, and the photos was such a nice touch. A great balance of stories, naked eye stargazing, and using the telescope. I will definitely be doing this again and recommending to everyone I know. Do yourself a favor and book with Chameleon!
