Q-Trip #1) In my view My Backyard offers THE experience. Why? Small group, intimate personal experience ... and the homemade treats. Q-Trip #2) Backyard has a front yard #1 guide (and driver) in Bill Harden. - Ice Road; He wrote a book. ‘The Good Road’ ... - Diamond Mine; He wrote ‘the’ book. - Air Tindi; He wrote ‘the’ book. - Aurora photo book ‘Aurora Up There’ ... a WOW in pictures. Get it (or others) personalized by the author himself. Q-Trip #3) Bill Harden’s slide show and talk was the BEST in Aurora information. Q-Trip #4) Like a comfortable warm cabin overlooking the lake as your base? Take your outer layers off ... BUT ... if you like the hunt stick to a small van or bus. BIG Q-Trip conclusion with a WARNING: The most popular Aurora experience has over 6 buses heading to the camp. You may have 400 people sharing the experience. If you like a group grope ... this is your tour. An orchestra of whoopsies at each sighting ...

These people are super nice and very very helpful. They really took great care of us. They have a cabin far out of the city lights near a lake . Bill helped so much with my camera which I personally did not know how to use. We got great photos, ate cookies, drank hot chocolate, and spiced cider. It was just perfect!

Myself and two friends rented clothing and went on the Ice Falls tour with My Backyard Tours. The clothing was wonderful! Well well worth our money. It was clean and fit as expected. We stayed toasty warm despite -30C weather! The Ice Falls tour with Stephanie was the best! Stephanie is so soo sooo nice! She's so bubbly and full of life! After the hike, she drove us around town a bit then took us to her house for cookies and warm cider. Stephanie really became our friend away from home!

Thank you very much for your review. We're happy to read you had a great time and stayed warm and comfy in our winter clothing. We too think our guides are the best, and we are always glad when people return to their home town knowing bonds have been made - whereby you'd refer to us as your northern friends. :D We hope you'll come back and visit us again. From all of us here at MBYT.

Amanda is brilliant! She responds promptly to communication, is clear about costs and options. We rented winter clothing from them (much needed here in the winter months) and she came back not one extra time, but two after we needed a size up in boots for my husband and a roomier jacket for me. She came with a smile on her face and a friendliness that made the whole experience a pleasure. We would absolutely use My Backyard Tours again. Thank you!
