Everything was handled brilliantly and professionally Loved the whole thing and couldn't fault it really. Only thing we would have done differently is probably... More

Quite a good tour. We could have done much of it on our own (and we did a few days later) but it was good to go with Joe to get the "lay of the land". Joe did a great effort to find some auroras given that the clouds moved in quickly. On top of that, he was very entertaining... More

I had a great excursion to see the Aurora Borealis March 10/15. Joe was a great guide and the stars and Aurora were amazing. Highly recommended.

First time to the NW, got a bit nervous at first, but soon got over with Joe's warm welcome. Weather is definitely critical in seeing aurora, but I can say Joe plays a huge role too. He observed the weather change, the sky, the stars and drove us to the best point and wait for this great show. The city... More

There is no doubt that the weather plays a huge role in whether the aurora can be seen, but Joe really tries his best in trying to find the best spots in Yellowknife for a better view of the aurora. On my trip, we were unlucky and lucky as the first aurora which we saw was really spectacular, even for... More

Well, chance to see aurora is really depending on the day's weather. So maybe you cannot see it sometimes but Joe is really trying hard to find it. He is kind and really enthusiastic about what he is doing. So if you are going yellowknife to see aurora, I think this tour will be your best choice. And his guesthouse... More

My friend and I live in Los Angeles. We initially planned to book our entire trip on our own. Then NorthStar offered us a package deal with some savings so we went through them. NorthStar was punctual in picking us up at the Yellowknife airport. We did the City Tour, Ice Road tour, 2 nights of aurora chasing with NorthStar.... More

Positive - Choosing Aurora Tour of North Star advanture was just right. (1) Above all, Joe the owner, driver and guide had excellent skills to take Adorable Photos. Even Joe sent the photos by email free of charge. All my friends who saw the photos envied me. Joe is very experienced in terms of Aurora Hunting (4 wheel drive tour... More
