Leaving a one star review is a very big deal and not take lightly. One star reviews effect our business heavily. This is how we earn our livelihood and are able to feed our family. If you truly believe we deserve a one star review then leave it but please know you are effecting not only the company but also our family. You can see out of all of our reviews we have you are the only 1 star review as we love our clients and always deliver the best service in the industry. The day your tour was scheduled had 100% cloudy weather conditions with no chances of viewing the lights. We reached out to you via the number you provided and via email early the morning of your experience. You were actually given three options 1 cancel for a full refund 2 reschedule for a better day 3 go out anyways After not being able to contact you and all other guests rescheduled or canceled for the night we logically figured you must be stuck somewhere in travel due to the winter storm warning advisory. "The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm warning for Fairbanks and central Interior communities. Snow, sleet and ice are in the forecast through Tuesday morning." We are very disappointed to have this one star review. You have been fully refunded for the night of Aurora viewing where you would not have viewed any Aurora due to the weather. All other guest were thrilled and overjoyed that they had the option to not go out on a 100% cloud coverage night. Thank you for considering removing your review.

The tour was overall...
, Sep 2021
The tour was overall amazing from start to finish. I loved the option of hotel pickup and drop off which made it extremely convenient. The communication was great starting with a confirmation text with your tour guides info as well as what to expect on the tour and time for pick up with a call 10 min before to give you a heads up. Our guide Austin was so kind and accommodating and made you feel very comfortable. He was an expert at locating the lights and captured some great photos on his camera which he will then send over on a link for easy download. He was very well prepared and provided us with reindeer sausage (reg., spicy, and vegan), hot chocolate and coffee, water, seltzers and a warm fire which he kept lit the whole time we were out there in temps between 12 to 25 it was great. I would definitely recommend to anyone wanting to experience the Aurora. Highlight of my trip :)

Great experience!

Had a great experience! Both Nick and Austin are cool and helped us take some amazing photos. Entire pick up and drop off was seamless and communication was really great. There were 2 vans with about 15 people split between the vans, we had warm drinks, hard seltzers and the reindeer sausage (they had vegetarian options too). The views were incredible and Austin/Nick were always available to take photos with their cameras. Highly recommended!

The local expert guide took us to all possible auroras sighting points, chased the cloudless spots and we had an incredible aurorad sighting when according to the forecast the probability was going to be very low. Fully recommended. Also the guide offered explanations and super interesting information about the places visited.
