    My daughter and I thank Arctic Tours for this journey! We came to Yellowknife from Toronto. It was amazing tour! Our guides were very knowledgeable and took care about tourists very good. Tour bus was every time just in scheduled time. They tried to keep us warm with tea, coffee, treats and hot chocolate, they took our pictures and answered on all our questions. We were lucky, weather was perfect. We saw amazing 60% storm. We saw Northern light every night. Thank you very much Arctic Tours for this unforgettable tour!

    ガイドさんは日本人の方で、状況に応じて臨 機応変に小さな変更を加えてくださいました 。クリスマス時期前後は、お店や博物館が閉 まっているので、予定のところに行くことが できないことがあります。今回はガイドさん とドライバーさんが相談して多少の変更を加 えながら市内観光をしてくださいました。

    Tour isn’t worth it as get dropped at heritage centre, taken to the welcome to Yellowknife sign, go to an cultural community (which is just normal houses now and sit on the bus which couldn’t see out as frozen windows), got to pilot monument which is just in town also and went to the lake rod, but can get into that anytime by walking on the great slave lake. The bus was freezing cold and if it was warm might have been okay

    Esta fue una gran experiencia. viaje con mi familia 3 personas Contraté 3 tours con Viator, El de 3 días cazando auroras, el Sightseein Tour y la caminata en Cameron Falls y los 3 fueron estupendos. Gracias a nuestro guía Will todo fue muy fácil y nos proporcionó la información y soporte que requeríamos Es una persona con muy buen humor y de trato muy amable. Lo recomiendo ampliamente

    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.
