Stayed at Khoon and Shirley while total of 6 people were visiting Whitehorse. It was an amazing experience staying with Khoon and Shirley’s especially for us visiting during Chinese New Year. Khoon and Shirley invited us to join their family for the Chinese New Year dinner which truly made us feel home away from home. Most importantly, Khoon is an amazing local guide who were able to help us plan an amazing trip at low price. Highly recommended for anyone who is planning to visit Whitehorse!

My family and I stayed with them for 3 nights and we received the best hospitality from the host. Khoon showed us around town and the price is VERY reasonable for the service we got. Highly recommend this place to anyone going to Whitehorse.

I am so lucky that I can live in Mr. Khoon’s home-stay! It is a really good and clean house. The landlord Mr.Khoon is a tour guide, so he can help us plan the trip! He is very good at arranged good tours. I hope I can go to Whitehorse to see the northern light again and live in Mr. Khoon’s house!

Khoon and Shirley were amazing hosts and really tried their best to make us have the best stay possible! The room was beautiful and like a fully contained apartment with extremely comfy beds and great heating. Khoon is a very knowledgable host and tour guide! He helped out so much with booking and arranging unforgettable activities such as dog sledding and northern light tours.

It was one of the best experience ever. Khoon’s place is quiet, comfortable, really clean and with everything you must need. We eat every day there so we save a lot in meals. Khoon and Shirley were very helpful they try to help us in every way they could. We want to return again and enjoy new experiences with them.

Khoon and Shirley were wonderful host. We are a large group of bicyclist and were greeted with delicious birds nest tea. They accommodated many unusual request. They were so friendly and several members of our group took a city tour with Khoon. They really made our Whitehorse experience special. I should also note that Whitehorse is a beautiful city.

Khoon and Shirley both were so nice and very welcoming. The housing and our stay was extremely comfortable. I really Loved the location, and was able to do many excursions in one day. The view is beautiful in every direction you go and exceeded out expectations. I highly recommend a stay with Khoon and Shirley and would love to come back for future trips.

Yukon is such an amazing place with magnificent sceneries from wilderness and nice people. We are so grateful to have Mr Eng Khoon Chua as our tour guide, he has designed a trip that allows us to go on exciting adventures in the wild, as well as introducing us with intriguing local activities. I can never forget how we spent our nights waiting aurora in an exotic wooden hut and in a hot spring! Myself will definitely go to Yukon again to continue my adventure and to be fascinated by all more stunning sceneries! Thanks again to Khoon and his family for the warm welcoming and bringing us around!

I was researching on how to go about catching the northern lights when I came across several good reviews of Mr Eng Khoon Chua’s guided tour. We were not disappointed as he was helpful, friendly, and provided comprehensive services. The best part was we saw the aurora on both nights. The day activities, which included dog-sledding and snow mobil ride, also delighted my child greatly. I highly recommend anyone looking to catch the northern lights or looking for interesting day activities to do in Yukon join Mr Chua’s guided tours. Thanks Mr Chua for such an enjoyable trip!
I would highly recomend Eng Khoon Chua and his wife Shirley. An awesome host. When I arrived at Yukon airport, Shirley was there to pick me up. Even though I did not plan to view auora that night, Shirley went an extra mile to bring me to the viewing area. Koon was alreay there with another group of Koreans. He was very experienced and took the time to take beautiful photos for us. Bearing in mind we are looking at minus 30 degrees. I am thoroughly impressed by his dedication and passion. Thumbs up!
Yukon is awesome 👏
They’re pretty nice and considerate
We really had a great night with aurora.
Thanks a lot.

We stayed in Khoon's apartment for several nights and the experience was indeed "home away from home"! The hosts, Khoon and Shirley were very welcoming, warm, hospitable and very knowledgeable about Yukon. In addition, we had a perfect aurora watching trip with Khoon, who is highly passionate and professional in his approach. Most impressive was his ability to predict to a high degree of accuracy how strong the aurora was for that night which was important to us as we could only have one shot at it. Whilst we appreciated that there was no guarantee as far as nature is concerned, we trusted Khoon and without waiting long, we found ourselves watching the spectacular dancing northern lights right before our eyes for real. We were thrilled and totally fulfilled! Thanks to Khoon for delivering beyond our expectations!

We were there a few days ago and Khoon was everything we could ask for from a tour guide. We have one four year old and a one year old. So, following a large tour group was out of the question for us. With diaper changing and having to sit down to feed the children, we need more time than regular folks during stops but Khoon never rush us and even help us take care of the elder son while we are busy with the younger one.
As for the tour itself, it was mesmerising. We went to Kluane National Park and it was just amazing. And Aurora viewing during the night, he brought us to a little cabin with excellent clear view in a very isolated location far away fron city lights. If you can't see it there, I don't think you'll be able to see it anywhere else. Will definitely contact them again when I visit Whitehorse.
