Tour Guide


Tours running nightly, English and Mandarin speaking available.

Weather

For a weather forecast we suggest visiting www.metservice.co.nz This web site has very good day and 3 and 5 day forecasts. Our tours will go ahead regardless of the weather. Our exciting indoor presentation utilizing high definition projector screens will replace an outdoor tour if the sky is completely covered with cloud. The 40 minute hot pool portion of our star gazing tour will always operate.

Hours

Please allow 2 hours in total including travel and check in. The café will be open for drinks and snacks throughout the tour.

Guide

Your tour guide will focus on the mythology and legend attributed to celestial objects by different cultures around the world. If the skies do not co-operate for outdoor stargazing, an exciting indoor experience is run instead, featuring the use of a high-definition projector and stunning full-colour satellite images of deep space as well as interactive elements and similar fascinating and informative content as in the outdoor tour.

Hot pools

This is where the tour gets really gets magical –in a 38-degree hot pool, let the real world melt away as you lie back with the help of a floating hammock to ensure ultimate relaxation and easy sky viewing. While soothing music plays, feel like you are floating among the stars as you explore the night at your own pace. The guides will be poolside during this unique star viewing experience, so if any questions come to mind or if you would like to know more about the cosmos simply ask!
