Before the tour, the team was great about communicating pickup coordination and knowing what to expect. Great guides who gave great info about the lights and knew where to go for optimal chance of viewing. Helped the participants learn to take photos of the night sky using their iPhones or androids. Gave plenty of time at the various stops for viewing the sky.

Had an awesome experience with the Jeep Rental. I was able to explore more of Alaska at the cost of utilizing someone else’s vehicle. The service was immaculate and very informative about our tour and the route we planned to take. I highly recommend everyone take this experience.
