Joe is a multilingual, knowledgeable and most important humour person! His van was full of laugh & joy, hardly any moment of silence! The tour we did with Joe was Dettah Ice Road. He took us to various spots for photo, and provided valuable local knowledge. If you're looking for a guy with great local knowledge, humour and personal touch,... More

Joe is such an amazing guy! He treated us not like tourists or customers but as his friends. He is such a dedicated guide with a great personality. He tells you about the aurora with such passion that you wouldn't mind staying by him in the cold all night just to hear his stories. He takes great photos for us... More

Have to say it was freaking cold! But Joe and his staff were warm, friendly, accomodating and knowledgeable. We did the Aurora Hunting Tour and went to three spots. Great Aurora to be seen and she achieved a level 5. Had a fun time despite the cold.

Hunting aurora with Joe was really a wise choice. I was pessimistic about my trip since the aurora forecast said the chance of seeing aurora was only moderate (like 4 out of a 10 point scale). But Joe took us to somewhere far away from downtown and finally the aurora was super strong! We went to ice fishing tour and... More

Joe was fantastic - instead of going to one place where you may or may not get a good view of the Northern Lights, North Star drives to where you are likely to get the best viewing that night. Excellent experience - Thanks Joe!

We enjoyed Joe's hospitality and experience, when coming to Yellowknife to see the northern lights. Couldn't recommend him enough. We got to experience them 2 out of 3 nights and the team made a big effort for us to be comfortable. We travelled with our 12, 10, 10 and 7 year old kids and had no problems.
