Cassie was a very informative tour guide. She made every guest feel comfortable, and ensured everyone got what they wanted out of the resort. The highlight was the ice museum, it was amazing what they are able to mould out of the ice bricks.

Hi: A few questions about the Chena Hot Springs and Northern Lights Tour, Is dinner included or available for purchase at the hot springs on this tour? Where do you watch the northern lights from? In the hot spring or at the same platform that they can take you to if you stay overnight at the Chena Hot Springs Resort? Thanks :)
