Wonderful experience and highly recommend! David was our guide. He was very communicative about our pick up time, and was prompt. SUV was very clean and comfortable. Not sure if it was because it was during the week or because of COVID, but my mom & I were the only ones on the

Our family of four came to Alaska with a mission and Alaska Journey Tours fulfilled it above and beyond expectations. We were blessed that mother Aurora was out in force dancing in the sky with hues of green and even pink. What an amazing experience and a dream come true!

I know my tour guide can’t control the weather and activity. But he kept turning the heat off in -35 weather. We were also in his personal truck. It’s not a tour bus or shuttle we were in his Ford Expedition. He kept taking pictures that only his camera could see and kept

Response from akjtours, Guest Relations Manager at Aurora Chasing & Northern Lights Viewing Tour with Photo & Pick up Service
Responded 3 days ago
We are sorry that you feel uncomfortable with last night's tour. Yes, we cannot control the Mother Nature. It was low aurora forecast (#2) and activity was not strong. But the weather was clear, which means that will be a good chance to see the lights. Depends on the lights, we need to wait for a while. It is normal that the lights do not always come out. Our vehicle is NOT a personal one. We got 4 WD Large SUVs only as you mentioned (Ford Expedition) because of safety. We can NOT use a Van, bus or shuttle to chase the Northern Lights. We put top priority on our clients' safety because we are driving on the snow. In addition, our aurora chaser did not turn off the engine because of the weather. He turned on the heater. It is an automatic controller to set the temperature. You told him that you felt cold while he tried to drop you off. Then, he said, "Thank you for letting me know" Then, he increased the temperature setting. We had more than 10 years experience to chase the Northern Lights. He chased the lights and stopped 4 different spots. These spots are the better ones. When the lights was little bit bright, he asked you to come out to take pictures. We post on "What to Expect" on TripAdvisor as followings: "We are driving and chasing the northern lights. You’re staying in the SUV. When the northern lights come, you get it off. Then, we will take pictures for you." SUV has a bigger tires than a Van, bus or Shuttle. It is right that getting on and off the SUV is not little bit easy. But, it is not true her grandma had a terrible time climbing in and out of our SUVs. She did not tell me about it. He took pictures for her 2 times when she got off the SUV.
