We had a great time chasing the northern lights. It was late but well worth it. The driver/photographer was great, he took great pictures, even gave advice for my personal pictures.

We appreciate your AMAZING Review on Viator. The Sunset (around 9:30 pm) is getting late. Now it would not be dark enough until 11:00pm. In addition, summertime (time saving) started. For example, 11:00pm today was 10:00pm in March. That was why we started the tour a little late to see the better Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights). We are glad that you got great pictures with Northern Lights. Thank you again for mentioning how he was and what he did. Blessings, Leah Alaska Journey Tours

Absolutely magical experience! We are so grateful we were able to book this tour last minute after seeing the aurora 2 nights in a row once with another tour company and once on our own, Grace & David we’re by far the best! Prompt pick up from our hotel in Fairbanks and straight to their secret spots for the most amazing northern lights viewing with unlimited portraits. Grace & David we can’t thank you enough for making our 25th anniversary trip dreams come true! Peter & Giselle Florida 🐊

The complete experience was awesome! We were lucky enough to experience an outstanding show of the Northern lights. We rode with the photograher David. He was on time in picking us up and very courteous throughout. And his picture skills were amazing! He took many of all the participants and gave us tips on having them turn out good. He also drove us to three different spots, taking pictures at each one! He had the picture link the very next day! As I said it was an amazing experience all around and I definitely would recommend!

Don’t Recommend seeing the lights in Alaska
Noah_T

The tour company was great, that couldn’t be more true, but the overall experience was absolutely horrendous. Had two of the best nights in terms of likelihood to see the lights and saw nothing. So disappointing. I realize it’s Mother Nature, but the truth is you’re better off going to Scandinavia or Iceland. At least if you don’t see the lights in one of those places you will have gone to a nice place and ticked off a country in the process. Fairbanks is not the place to be ladies and gentlemen.
icon Response from Host , Mar 2022
We are truly sorry that it happened. But we think that Fairbanks is one of the Great places to see the lights. It is Mother Nature that we cannot control as you mentioned. When we started to chase the Northern Lights, it was Clear (Mostly Clear) from 10:00 pm to 2:50 am. Kp index was 4 and 6. They tried to explain the situation. It was totally unusual, which is Mother Nature. Our tour is 3 hours long as posted. But they did it for more than 4 hours 30 minutes. And the following day was Kp index 6 and 5. It was High (+) Activity and the weather was good. But the lights were not coming out, which is Mother Nature. Here is how the tour goes as posted on TripAdvisor and Viator: We will decide by 9:00 pm everyday how the tour goes because the weather always changes. We can’t promise to let you see the Northern Lights, which is Mother Nature that we cannot control. It is a natural phenomenon. The weather may change during the tour although we start to chase the Northern Lights because it will be clear, mostly clear or partly cloudy. Even though everything is good (Weather and Aurora Activity) when it starts, the weather always changes and other conditions may change. It will be the natural things involved, which causes a lack of lights or low visibility. We are sorry again that it happened. Blessings, Leah -- Alaska Journey Tours

Can not control Mother Nature
Thad_L
, Mar 2022
I want to start by saying we know the weather cannot be controlled. The vehicle we rode in was a nice SUV. The driver was on time for pick up. At pick up there were 2 other couples getting in the vehicle with us. The driver did not acknowledge we had the correct vehicle. I have been on multiple tours and was disappointed in the interaction the driver had with the participants. There was no conversation and all we kept hearing was ‘we are driving to another spot’. The did try 5 different areas for us to see the lights. I was not disappointed with the lack of lights, again no one controls Mother Nature. I was disappointed with the lack of conversation and comments on where we were and what was happening. All we were told was ‘no green light’ and ‘new spot’ and ‘should see lights, conditions favorable’….drivers with more personality would have received a full rating even with no lights.

Our driver and photographer, David, was punctual and professional. He took more than enough photos of everyone and made the experience quite enjoyable and entertaining by rotating each group in and out for photos. He took us to 3 different spots to chase down the lights for the best photos possible. Two thumbs up for him and his efforts to make this once in a lifetime a positive and productive experience for us.

The lights were minimal this night, but David knew where to look, and what to look for. He took our pictures in front of the lights, and we could see the colors on his camera. They really were not visible with your eyes, but did show up when taking pictures. He explained to us what to look for. We stopped in a couple of different places to try and get a better viewing. David did a great job, and sent us a link to his pictures the next day. They did a great job of communicating from beginning to end, with text messages.

Really great experience! I appreciated the small intimate group, and David the tour guide was fun. Great driver on ice and snow I must say too. Took us to Clear Summit and took great photos. He even stopped by the Pipeline and took photos for us too.

We appreciate your Amazing Review on Viator. Even though the weather forecast was partly cloudy, it was mostly cloudy. That's why he stopped by different spots to find the clear skies.

Grace and David did a great job! There was a lot cloud so they took us to different places and we finally saw northern light at about 1 am.

We appreciate your Amazing Review on Viator. When we started to chase the Northern Lights, it was partly cloudy. But when we got to the first spot, it was mostly cloudy. Even though few stars came out in the clouds, we could not see the Aurora Borealis. It was blessing they found a place in a little bit clear sky. Then, you saw the Northern Lights. We are so proud of them. Thank you again for your review. Have a blessed day. Leah Alaska Journey Tours
