I've not tripped in many long months, but when I first got into psychedelics (most of them synthetic so I can't discuss that here), I was all about night-tripping.
Once I moved on from all of that and moved on from LSD to the mushrooms I've found that I prefer a good trip during the day when I have free time. It doesn't even have to be a large dose. I love the smaller doses and the micro-doses. I can do it at night, too, so long as I allot myself 4 to 6 hours.
I prefer the day as I can walk locally and explore nature and the local parks, but it's also OK to spend a few hours at night at home or do a nice quiet walk in the evening as the trip wanes.
I feel that during the day is best for me as I like to be active in general and it can look out of place being so active during the evening. If I trip during the night time I have to time my excursions carefully.
