    Don't waste your money or time with this company! ALMOST NOTE NO REFUND very disorganized, if your going to pay the price and customer service sucks. We got the guy who has no experience his 1st trip and kept saying " I don't know, it's my 1st time" ask the company. Very annoying. He asked to be rated and given a review, stated even how his driving is. Seriously! We didn't see anything and he had no idea when should we leave. So we took charge saying its been 3hrs, no info ( again it'shis 1st time), no activity, we are ready to be taken back.

    We were very lucky to see the Northern Lights on the night that we went. We saw it around midnight and stayed for 2 1/2 hours as the lights kept getting more vivid as the night went on. Melissa our guide said that she had 7 people the night before and it didn’t appear so we’re pretty lucky and happy.

    We missed it due to rainy weather, we were very well taken care of though by the tour guide Joe, Riley and Robert, had s’mores in the middle of the rain but it was fun

    We were in Fairbanks for 6 nights to allow opportunity to see the Northern Lights - our main goal. On night 5, we were scheduled for this tour. It was a clear cold night, made colder by blustering winds, but the lights were very active (the only night we got to see them). Jim our guide made sure the heated Yurt would give us good refuge not only for viewing them from within but also guiding us when to go out. Jim was a gracious guide, full of knowledge about the area and the lights, as well as a safe driver on snowy roads.

    Way better than the Chena Hot Springs viewing! The staff took care to remove all possible lights pollution coming from the yurts. The yurts themselves had huge open windows to view the sky from the interior; you needn’t subject yourself to the cold to view the auroras!! Our driver and guide Ed was incredibly knowledgeable about bears and kept up a running stream of facts, which we sometimes peppered with questions and he took them all in stride. We thankfully had clear skies and got to see the auroras as they came in around 1:30AM. We even got to see the rare blue tint of the auroras and learned from Ed that it was nitrogen burning off in our atmosphere. Round trip transportation from our hotel was provided, and Ed gave us a certificate of aurora viewing once we disembarked. Super great experience overall, and would highly recommend!! There are even options to have dinner or go dog sledding, which we didn’t know about but would have totally booked. Don’t hesitate to book with this amazing tour company and their knowledgeable guides!

    Beautiful, open area to see the lights. It was wonderful to get to see them here. Very nice to be able to go in and out of the yurt to stay warmed up and also be able to view the lights from inside the yurt with its spacious glass viewing area! Joe is a great guide and made everything feel so welcoming.

    We took a tour with Joe, who did a wonderful job guiding and narrating our tour. Mother nature was only partially helpful as the lights were visible, but very low key. On the plus side, they offered warm lodges to stay comfortable while we waiting for the lights to appear. They also offered warm drinks and cookies while we waited.

    Although mother nature did not give us her best Aurora Show, we had a wonderful time on the tour. Joe was a great guide.

    I was referred to this company by a clerk at my hotel and called them to book my Aurora viewing trip. I planned this for my first night in Alaska. Forty minutes before my pick up time I was called and told it was cancelled because it was snowing. I was sitting in my window and never saw any snow. If it snowed it must had been very little and shouldn't have been enough to cancel the reservation. I spoke to other travelers the next day who were able to see the lights via other companies. The person who called me to cancel said they were full the other nights so I never got to even try to see the lights as other companies were full too. They probably do great tours as they were referred to me but I will never know. I would recommend that they create ways to accommodate people they cancelled on other days as some people, like me, traveled for 12 hours just for the chance to see the lights. I am deeply saddened by what happened. I would recommend anyone else to book two nights with two different companies to decrease the chances of getting canceled over nonexistent snow. They manage many tours and might not realize how important these tours are to some travelers. I would have gone out in the snow as whatever they saw must have ended soon and having any chance to see the lights would have meant the world to me.

    Our 2nd tour with Josh. After our exciting/fun Yukon/Arctic tour last nite this was short and sweet. Northern Lights were amazing , yurt was so comfortable and Josh was busy lighting the camp fire for marshmallows to be appreciated, hot chocolate was perfect. What a wonderful way to end our trip to Alaska. Will plan for summer tour with Josh.
