Great experience and lovely guide who was very informative and was helpful in giving advice for getting the best pictures. If you’re looking for a small groups personal tour I would not suggest this as you end up sharing meet up location with 6 other coach’s of people! :)

We have just been on this amazing tour and I felt I needed to write a review. The lady that was our guide was 5 stars, she was enthusiastic and very knowledgable. The coach driver a good driver and friendly. We were very very lucky and saw the northern lights, it was an amazing show for us.

We changed our booking for a day later as there was no chance of seeing the lights the first night as it was was very cloudy! The second night was fab clear skies, we were taken to the National Park by coach which is quite high up in the hills! The starry sky was amazing and we did see the Aurora Borealis but only a short gentle light show could be seen! Still we saw them so that was a tick for my bucket list! Guide was good but a bit monotone in her voice! As it was night time it would have been better with a livelier presentation!
