Our tour guide was very knowledgeable of the area and gave us lots of information and fun facts about the area. He was funny and made us all feel at ease. He was very approachable and answered everyone's questions when we asked. He also remembered where we were all from in the group ie. Uk America Canada which was a nice touch when some information was relevant He made the effort to include us.

Beautiful experience to be recommended absolutely. You travel at night so upon arrival you are rested enough to enjoy a unique show! The guide Emily is very good and very prepared. The only pity is that in the cold period you don't have access to all the viewpoints as it is risky for the ice. Highly recommended
