Had a great time with the wonderful guide Makrem and the four others who joined. On time, didn't feel rushed and the supplemental audio was fairly well done. The views are gorgeous even if it feels a bit touristy.

Our guide drove around to find a good spot, and we did see the lights - not particularly strong lights but that’s the nature of the phenomenon. It was unbelievably freezing despite thermals, four layers, coats hats and scarves so after an hour or so...More

Had a great day with Ian as our guide. The reason I like this better than bus tours is that you can visit more places and getting on and off is easy. Many times Ian would drop us off at a convenient place and go...More
