You have never seen the night sky like this before.

Millions of light years in the making, we travel through the Universe on a remarkably unique observatory – planet Earth. With us, our brothers and sisters in the solar system, their satellites and ours, orbiting the Sun, swirling through the Milky Way, wherever the expanse of the night sky takes us.

This will be a celebration of the first star party and the next, the first light of a new lens, the last time we will ever think of ourselves as just another planet. We will be storytellers and artists, explorers and discoverers sharing the desert tranquility by day and reaching out to the stars together at night.

We are life in the Universe.

+ CODE OF ETHICS

We are all explorers – on a journey of discovery, sharing in the natural wonder of our planet and the Universe, and seeking extraordinary science experiences together.

We are committed to and actively promote diversity in our community, and we believe the future of science and research, culture and art, depend upon the inclusion of and respect for individual perspectives.

We will always be considerate, kind, constructive, and helpful with each other, and promote a collaborative environment of safety, security, and friendship within our community.

We prohibit the use of any demeaning, discriminatory, threatening, or harassing speech toward any member of our AstroTouring community.

Your participation is contingent on upholding these ethics and standards of integrity as we travel together in search of our own unique connections with the cosmos.

Your price is subject to increase prior to the time you make full payment. Your price is not subject to increase after you make full payment, except for charges resulting from increases in government-imposed taxes or fees

Once deposited, you have 7 days to send us written consumer consent or withdraw consent and receive a full refund.

Cancellation protection is highly recommended and must be purchased at time of deposit. Payment of a per person waiver fee guarantees a full refund of all payments (including deposit) except for the waiver fee itself, in case of cancellation of travel plans for any reason prior to the day of departure.

Any name changes are subject to penalty.

A handling fee of $25 per change will be assessed for any change or revision made to a reservation.

If you have not purchased waivers, and you need to cancel for any reason prior to the day of departure, the Cancellation Fees are as follows:

The Travel Protection Plan Fee does not cover any single supplement charges which arise from an individual’s traveling companion electing to cancel for any reason prior to departure.

AstroTours reserves the right to cancel any reservation, and that person will be responsible for any cancellation fees that apply, if our CODE OF ETHICS for the Astrotouring community are not upheld and adhered to.
