Kind Words

"We are still exhilarated from our Yellowknife tour with Dyanne. Every aspect of the trip met or exceeded our expectations. Dyanne is a well organized and lovely woman with an amazing talent for photography. We took this tour because we wanted to experience Yellowknife with someone who knew the city inside out. Because Dyanne lived there for two years she has many contacts and a wealth of knowledge that we were able to benefit from. We prefer a small group local experience when we travel, so this trip absolutely met that criteria. It was great to not have to organize a thing. We thoroughly enjoyed the Snow Castle opening, walking around Old Town, Bullocks Bistro, going out ice fishing in a vintage bombardier and then eating the catch, dog sledding and sliding at Aurora Village, aurora viewing at a private cabin on a lake and tours of the Legislature Assembly Building and Prince of Wales Museum. The complimentary Aurora Heat sheared beaver hand warmers were a nice souvenir and helped to keep us toasty warm. Dyanne’s patience and expertise with photography helped me achieve amazing photos that I could not have shot on my own. I learnt so much about photography and feel much more comfortable using manual settings on my camera thanks to Dyanne.We travel considerably and this trip rates up there as one of the best!" - Mary Anne and Marty

*****

"I toured with them two years ago and had the time of my life, it was a great time. All the things that she has listed except for the dogsledding I have done up there. 

I would make the trip just to go to Bullock‘s bistro and have white fish every day such a cool place unbelievable food the fish that they serve hasn’t been out of the water for more than a couple of hours so you can imagine the taste, photographing the northern lights takes your breath away, we drove down the highway one day looking for Woodland bison and finally saw them but even better was the fox that was crossing the road that I got amazing photos of.

I give it 6 stars out of 5!" - Peter
