    Acrtiic Tour guide, Winfred “Willy”, is very experience, patient and friendly. We highly recommend him.

    The tour was OK. It covered all main attractions in 3 hours in Yellowknife. However if you could spare around 5 hours, you could go to these attractions by short walking distance or taxi rides of less than $10 from one end of Yellowknife to the other. Old town is nice to walk around.

    We went to the city tour with ArcticTours, our driver and guide Windfred was very nice, he park the car near the sights. We enjoy everything especially the Heritage Center and the driving on the Lake.

    This tour was a great way to get your bearings and know where you may want to spend a bit more time on your own. We all really enjoyed it.

    Our guide, Lovingson, went over and beyond his promised 3 hour tour and could not do enough for us. As we were seniors he dropped us at doors and had a more experienced guide tour us through the museum and legislative buildings. He stayed while my husband shopped for diamonds and was very interested in our wellbeing.
