We had Randy take us on this trip. Great knowledge and interesting stories from his experience. A real Bear Grylls type with years living in isolation surviving of the land. Museum and cultural Centre were interesting. Unfortunately Santa was on a day off (Monday’s and Tuesday’s) at North Pole but we took opportunity to sit in his chair during his absence.

Our tour guide, Joe, did a great job! Tour includes Morris Thompson Cultural and Visitor Center--has any information/brochures you could need and some very nice exhibits and photo op under the antler arch, Museum of the North at University of Fairbanks--a really nice museum and art gallery, and a trip to North Pole--huge Santa statue, sleigh photo op, large Christmas tree and a very nice Christmas store.

Highly recommend this tour and company. Great intimate overview of Fairbanks. A smaller coach with fewer people. Cassie, our guide and driver, was great sharing stories about life in Alaska including her own experiences. She made it upbeat, fun and interesting.This tour included the Univ of AK Fairbanks Museum of the North, a must see!

Great tour
Jun 2019 • Couples
On our last day of our Alaskan vacation we had a very late flight. Instead of wasting time at the airport, we decided to take this tour. We are happy we did. Caleb was outstanding as our driver/guide. He is an all year resident which is why he is so knowledgeable about the area and the sites we visited. He had many insights that we would not have gotten from a seasonal guide.The locations were very interesting and Caleb let us explore those locations on our own after giving us the necessary info needed. This was a perfect balance of guidance and self exploration. Caleb's driving was great. It was quite comfortable being on the van with him. He was never distracted and always focused on his task. I highly recommend this tour.
