We are a group of five ladies from Hong Kong and joined the snow mobile activities at 2015-03-24. The tour guide, Carlos, is so nice and efficient. He replied our enquires promptly. During the tour, he is very helpful, friendly and humorous. He took care of us and suited our needs. For example, my friend thought her mobile phone lost... More

Carlos is really great. He took care everyone on the tour, also so kind to take photos for us. Really recommend attending his snowmobile tour. I have a good memory!

An exciting outdoor experience with full gear. A break at Carlo's resort house with a treat of hot chocolate is thoughtful. Hope that we could be allowed to ride the snow mobile with higher speed.

I joined a snowmobile tour by the recommendation of my hotel. I found it very interesting and the scenic view during the snowmobiling tour was stunning. Carlos gave very clear and detailed instructions on how to control the snowmobile, so no fear at all. Also, with the well-maintained and compreshensive gear, you don't have to worry about anything but enjoy... More

People have raved here about Carlos, but I think we got him on a 'off' day. Everything seemed a bit of a hassle to him. The snowmobile trip itself was fun out to the cabin and back over the frozen lake, and through wood trails. Also, I was a bit surprised not to sign a disclaimer before taking out the... More

Had a great ride following Carlos. He let me do a couple of quick treks out to nearby islands and back, as some of the guests were a bit slower. He supplies the gear and instructions, and off you go. Had a great time. Highly recommended!

Only regret with this was that we didn't do the evening tour to see the Aurora. Snowmobiling was fun and the scenery spectacular. the cabin that you eventually arrive at is a lovely little place. Carlos ran the tour efficiently and with care. If you are visiting the area you should give this a go

Carlos is incredible, he sorted our accommodation, took us round the town, pointed out the unknown cool things to do in Yellowknife, took us to the snow king castle (March only) ... But then we did dog sledding (which the kids think is the best thing they have ever done), snowmobiling across great slave lake, and best of all snowmobiling... More
