          Great guides
          This was a great itinerary. They arranged transportation, a great hotel, and three nights of different aurora viewing trips with excellent guides. We had a city tour with Mo also which was very good. Lucy and Leon were very professional, thorough, and knowledgeable guides. By the way, if plans do change, do not worry: there are cabs everywhere including at the airport all night (and you can call one if needed), and the Chateau Nova hotel, for example, is open and active all night long, even if people don’t seem to answer their phones at many hotels and businesses. Don’t hesitate to book — I’d definitely it do this again.

          Best Aurora Tour
          Excellent tour to take to see the Aurora. Lucy, our tour guide, took us to three different locations and went above and beyond to make sure we get the best viewing experience and took more than 100 photos for us. Highly recommend the tour.

          Great experience
          It was a great experience with the Aurora tour. Our tour guide Amit is thoughtful and responsible, and reply to messages quickly and precisely. Dog sledding is fun. The cabin is full of real animal leather, and even has a polar bear paw! Definitely a worthwhile tour. I highly recommend people come and have the experience once in your life.

          Great experience!
          Great service and explanations provided by Amit! The dogs looked really excited about the running and were clearly taken care of. The family that runs the place has been in business for generations and know what they are doing! Overall a great experience, would recommend!

          Top Notch Experience
          A highlight of our trip to Yellowknife. The family was most welcoming and had interesting stories to tell us. Fantastic ride on the frozen lake - thanks to Evo, Spirit and the rest of the dog team. Kudos to Winter and even the driver who picked us up from the hotel. All top notch.

          Highly recommended dog sledding experience
          An unforgettable afternoon spent in the company of Winter, her dad, and Don, plus lots of hugely excited, noisy dogs. We could pet the dogs and wander about the site before getting in the sled, to be taken on a ride around the lake. Beautiful weather, snow sparkling in the sunshine, with the dogs relishing the run as much as us. Afterwards we were invited for a hot drink, cookies and brannock, plus a look around the cabin with the various animal pelts, photographs and amazing handiwork of the various members of the family. Thank you all for your wonderful hospitality and meeting the dogs.

          Amazing Aurora Experience
          We had a very pleasant experience doing business with Yellowknife Vacations. Amit and Team were very responsive during the planning of our tour. Lucy was very cooperative and gave us a wonderful Aurora Tour. We got some amazing views and we are taking back wonderful memories. Thank you Amit for helping us book the additional activities too. Also for sharing some interesting information about Yellowknife. We would highly recommend anyone looking for booking guided tours and activities in this area, go for Yellowknife Vacations .

          It was great! Daphne had great disposition and took plenty of great pictures! The bus was warm so we could wait for the aurora there. Would hire again no doubt!

          Fantastic Experience!
          Fantastic experience! Lucy took the time to make sure we caught great images of the Aurora. Ray was a cautious driver and took his time on the icy road. Both were a great team. Lucy snapped great pics of our group. My colleagues and I had a fabulous time.

          Overall great experience well suited for families
          We did 1 hour dog sledding tour that was arranged by Yellowknife vacations. They provided pickup from hotel that was prompt and on time. Amit was very friendly and shared many interesting facts about the neighborhood and the area in general. Dog sledding at Tugah was a great experience. The hosts Don and Winter were extremely friendly. We are family with two young kids. They made sure we were warm and cozy during the wait and the actual ride in frigid temperatures. It was a seated sled so made it much more easier for the kids. They had lot of fun. Winter took some nice pictures of the ride as well. It was overall a wonderful experience and would highly recommend.

          Amazing experience!
          The whole experience was amazing! Lucy, our guide was extremely friendly and did a Great job of explaining the Aurora to us. She took many pictures of us under the Aurora and recommended different angles for optimal pictures. The bus picked us up from our Airbnb on schedule and off we went to the outskirts where there was no light pollution and the Aurora could best be seen. We did the same tour two nights: on the first night we only saw a glimpse of the Aurora as it IS unpredictable. However, on the second night, we had the most magical experience! The Aurora was dancing through the sky and the colours were quite vibrant. It was An amazing experience and although was able to check this off our bucket list, we will definitely be back to see them again.

          It was amazing. The company is great to work with. They rebooked our dates due to a cancelled flight and the guide was fantastic. She stood out in -35C cold and took many photos of everyone! Highly recommend this tour.

          Third time was the charm
          I took this tour with my husband all 3 nights we were in YK. People at the office were excellent and answered all my questions every time I called. If you take the tour once you can book again with them an receive a 10% discount. At the time of the tour they were always on time and our guide Lucy was excellent! She learned everyone's names and make every effort possible to take great pictures of us. First night was snowing so no aurora, second night clear but weak aurora, third night was fantastic! So many great photos! Thank you Lucy, we will cherish this trip!

        Knowledgeable, friendly guide. Appreciated that pictures were taken at different points of interest. Appreciated that we were picked up at our hotel instead of designated pick up spots downtown. Appreciated recommendations on where to eat, shop for souvenirs. Asked to be dropped off at a Starbucks instead of the hotel. Even called up restaurants for their hours of operation. Better than taking several taxis and touring the city on our own. Thank you Amit.
