Travel with the Leader in Astronomy-themed Tours


At Sky & Telescope, we have a passion for astronomy, and we want to share it with you in as many ways as possible — including bringing you with us on astronomy tours around the world!

Each trip offers expert English-speaking tour leaders and local guides, deluxe accommodations, and delectable regional cuisine (with most meals included). And a Sky & Telescope editor will be traveling with you to answer your astronomy questions and to help make sure everything runs smoothly.
