Had a wonderful time at this tour! Hot springs were amazing the ice museum was neat as well. We didn't get to see the northern lights but our tour guide Caleb gave us our best shot. He also helped us with our itinerary for the following day which included about a 5hour road trip

Our favorite part was going into the hot springs. We also saw a couple of moose on the way up to the resort as well. Dave( not the owner) was an awesome e tour guide, he was very informative of things to do while in Alaska.

Caleb was an awesome tour guide and really knew the area and wanted to ensure that we all could enjoy ourselves and the chase to locate the Aurora Borealis was worth it and again Calem took our photo's which was great because my camera wasn't working however I have great photo's
