The tour was OK. It covered all main attractions in 3 hours in Yellowknife. However if you could spare around 5 hours, you could go to these attractions by short walking distance or taxi rides of less than $10 from one end of Yellowknife to the other. Old town is nice to walk around.

Our guide, Lovingson, went over and beyond his promised 3 hour tour and could not do enough for us. As we were seniors he dropped us at doors and had a more experienced guide tour us through the museum and legislative buildings. He stayed while my husband shopped for diamonds and was very interested in our wellbeing.
