What Customers Say


  • I joined Aurora Ninja Tour in March 2014. Aurora Ninja is excellent tour guide in Yellowknife. David brought us to chase the aurora for 4 nights. He is very friendly and kind. There was -42c at night, he prepared extra clothing for us and also hot drinks. He knows many good places to see aurora and, very important, he can take excellent aurora photos and he taught us how to take a beautiful photo as well. We had a wonderful time in Yellowknife.

  • A small group in David's van and very attentive service. David took us to different locations for a variety of background - excellent for photo taking purposes. David helped with camera set up and shared with us any fabulous photos that he might have taken. He also prepared hot drinks and snack food- a warm and attentive service. EXCELLENT!

  • I'd highly recommend David of Aurora Ninja Photo Tour especially if you are first time going to see the aurora in Yellowknife. David is a responsible tour guide and you can rest assured he takes good care of his customers. He arranged for our transportation, booking fun activities for us during the day and driving us to chase after the aurora at night. He is good at taking photos and taught/showed us how to take the best shots with our cameras. Beginning this year, you can rent coat, pants, boots and gloves from him. His heavy gear set is wonderful because it kept us warm. If we hadn't rented from him, we would not have enjoyed ourselves so much under the freezing cold weather for 3+ hours. And the best part of his photo tour - hot dogs and hot chocolate which kept our stomach full and comfortable before going back to the hotel to sleep..

  • David of Aurora Ninja Tour was recommended by my sister In-law who used his service before. He did not disappoint us at all. He helped us in booking all day time activities before we arrived. The gear we rented from him was clean and warm. I brought a camera to take pictures of the Aurora but have had no idea what setting is needed. David did all setting for me. we joined him to chase the northern lights for 2 nights. The second nights was very cloudy which was quite impossible to see the Aurora but he did not shorten the tour. I would recommend him to whoever going to Yellowknife.

  • I joined Aurora Ninja Tour in March 2014 & Sept 2014. David the owner is a very nice person. He treats his business as his personal viewing of the northern light tour. He knows a lot of good place and will take us there. He likes chatting and making friends. He will try his best to go around to chase the northern light through out the light. He will prepare extra photographing equipment for us as just in case ours are not working due to the weather. He also taught me a lot how to shoot the northern light. although the tour start at 11pm, David does not really count on when the tour should end, he wants everyone to be happy and have a enjoyable night. I highly recommend his tour to everyone. I will go back soon and will join David's tour for sure.Mary W.
