This is a cute place to visit and look around also the staff is friendly and have the scoop on where to go and what to see around the area. They even can tell you about events being held while you stay and where to find all the attractions.

They did respond to email enquiries but their response wasn't as friendly as one would expect. Perhaps too busy, too few staff, or didn't bother. Anyway we went somewhere else.

Staff full of knowledge. Spent lots of time with us chatting enthusiastically about things to do in Yellowknife. The two people we spoke to (youngsters) genuinely loved their city and were really helpful in organising our week of tours. We even used their phone and Internet to book them
