    Over Priced!! Way over priced!! Scam!!

    The Voyage North is by far the biggest scam out there. Jordan Gwyther (who posted a 5 star review above) owns the company. Not only does he own this company but LARP Tents as well (which are the tents he uses out there). And quick note LARP Tents is equally bad. ( I paid over 2k for a tent, it came in with a rip in the seam the wrong color and a bent pole and nothing was done about it, basically told sorry about your luck) but back on topic...

    I went first in 2016 and reluctantly again in 2017. Total cost for both years was around $3,400. And that was just for the package they offer.

    They offer an all exclusive package that supposedly provides you with everything that you need. But in reality you pay for things that you don't use or need. Like I drove myself up from New York but yet still had to pay for the Bus to get there even though I wasn't using it. And was told it would be to hard to make the package different for everyone.

    My first year was extremely disappointing to say the least. Why then would I go back in 2017, well So I could investigate some more get their prices and report them to the IRS and BBB.

    In total about 130 people sign up at roughly $1700usd a ticket that's $221,000usd they just made.
    Minus the food cost, which is just the Bico food package served at the camp and the labor of their employees (whom they pay Not a lot to set the tents up) and the actual event tickets and they are making about $175,000usd.

    All untaxed, and unreported. I found out that in 2017 Bicoilline now offers their own packages for $1,700cad (which is cheaper). 4 event tickets so 4 people can go with a tent and cots provided plus food for the week, the same food that the Voyage North serves you, the only difference you need to walk to a Tavern to get it, and you get a shower card. That's a far cheaper amount then the $1,700usd a person. They also refuse to give a refund. in 2016 a friend of mine had a real horrible time. Got sick from some food given to him not the Bico food another member in the camp, and was in his tent out of commission for like 5 days. Wasn't able to do anything besides get sick and sleep. Jordan offered a $200 discount if he wanted to sign up again for next year.

    A few times I tried to find the staff up there and they were all hungover or out still drinking. I saw Jordan once (apart from his speechs he gives) and he reeked of alcohol, kept grabbing me by the arm to talk and stuff at the tavern, the best part he didn't even know who I was or what guild I was from despite wearing the guild tabard they give you, which you can actually buy from epic armory so it's not unique like they claim.

    Oh and the talks and speeches he gives.... probably the best part. He tells you his story that he loves to provide you with the best experience, and they don't make money from doing this. And his life is so hard. And him and his wife don't own their own home....

    But yet they will flaunt their expensive trips on Facebook they take to New York here or down to Florida or another LARP in the South. Their trips all around the US, sure....they don't make any money.... THEY MAKE A TON.

    I'm surprised that no one has questioned why they don't have a actual location or address for the business. Everything out there for them never gives you an actual location. Things companies do when they are a scam.

    In short save you money buy the tickets from Bicolline, it's not hard to get up there, plus there are like 10 English Guilds up there. All would love new people. Most of the Ordo veterans left in 2017 here to start their own guilds. Even some of the French speaking Guilds will recruit English speakers, I was lucky to get in with one myself.

    BUT KEEP CLEAR OF THE VOYAGE NORTH.

    Over priced little follow through

    For the actual price of bicolline grand battle even if u get the meal plan and rent a tent from bicolline which is easily done you will still spend almost double with the voyage north. The Voyage North is way way over priced for what you get. They make promises which they dont follow through on. They are always short staffed for the number of people. There are plenty of guilds that are willing to help people get there that speak English. Bicolline has even started a program to better help English speakers at the game. Dont waste ur money save it for enjoying ur trip.
