“It takes at least one million years for carbon to become diamonds.”
It was the answer to a simple question that I asked Andrew, the owner of Sundog Retreat at Whitehorse, Canada, when he shared with me his private collection, a valuable piece of mammoth tusk.
I asked, “Which is older, the 30,000 years old mammoth tusk or diamond?”
“I don’t know but I can find out.” He bothered to help answer even a trivial question.
This is just an example of his extraordinary customer service which makes Andrew and the stay at Sundog Retreat great!
He shared with us stories about Whitehorse and brought us to important places at Downtown (although this was not part of the package). With his great local knowledge, he recommended better and cheaper “Dog Sledding” package compared to those found in the hotel lobby.
Better? I steered the sled not as a passenger in the sled.
Most importantly! He immediately phoned us at our cabin when he spotted the Aurora Borealis. Nobody would want to miss that. And we saw one of the best shows.
I strongly recommend Sundog Retreat not merely because the place is spacious, clean and nice but because Andrew and his team have been a wonderful host with a splendid customer service mindset and that …is what really matters!
