The tour provided a substantial overview of Alaskan life and habitat. The wildlife museum was realistic, the Christmas shop had beautiful souvenirs, and the university museum has so much to offer that we wished we could have had at least another hour to explore it. Our friendly tour guide, Muriel, was very informative and interesting, and her anecdotes about growing up in Alaska added a nice personal touch. Although she spent a little too much time on a few of the exhibits at the Cultural and Visitors Center, it hardly detracted from our overall enjoyment of the tour at all, and I only bring it up to provide constructive criticism for Muriel. My husband and I highly recommend the Fairbanks City Highlight Tour as a great introduction to life in Alaska. You won’t be disappointed.

Wendy provided and running commentary about Fairbanks. She took us to the U of Alaska Museum of the North, the Robert White Large Animal Research Station and then on to see Santa at the North Pole (Alaska). She was great fun.

Muriel Toole was wonderful. She has lived here most of her life. Knew her facts and had interesting things to discuss. She enhanced the Morris Thompson Cultural Center with explanations. Loved visiting the town of North Pole. Maureen had great reindeer facts about rubbing off their coat and antler fur. The pipeline was interesting with details/changes through flow and earthquake. The Museum of the North was made even more interesting by Muriel’s direction to listen to the Aurora, and great info on various exhibits. Muriel’s pace and flow was great. Felt like you were visiting a friend and not just on a tour.

Muriel our tour driver took us to University Museum, LARS Research Station & Santa Claus House, giving us a very informative narrative along the drive. Really enjoyed the LARS Research Station & seeing the Musk Oxen & Reindeers. Muriel made our first Alaskan tour a great afternoon.

Great way to see the highlights of Fairbanks . “Joshua” was an excellent tour guide. Gave us a real insight into life in Fairbanks, as well as the right mix of time to discover on our own (UAF Museum) and providing the highlights ( Cultural Center). Although I wasn’t overly excited about visiting the pipeline, it turned out to be extremely interesting. A great guide, who loved Alaska…a perfect day. Only critique, face masks not required in van.

Loved our tour guide, Muriel! She is a true local. She grew up in Fairbanks, AK, and even shared with us her first hand account of the 1967 Chena River Flood as a child. She shared other great stories, too, as we drove from one spot to another. She was very knowledgeable. Very personable. Offered a step stool in and out of the van. Loved seeing and learning about the Alaskan Alyeska Pipeline. Muriel was good about taking pics for us with our cameras. Enjoyed the museum. She let us know what to expect. Our favorite stop was the Santa Claus House. And upon Muriel’s advice, we did the feed and pet reindeer adventure. It ended up being the HIGHLIGHT of our entire 2-week land tour of Alaska!!! Thanks Muriel :-)

Linus was an excellent tour guide!! Very knowledgeable and passionate about education others. We had our children with as well (9 & 7 years old). He did a great job of sharing information with them as well to keep them interested in the tour. Our van did break down at the pipeline which wasn't ideal, but Linus really made the best of it. We only had to wait a short while for a new van & then the tour continued on. Overall it was a great tour.

Great tour guide/driver - Linus. He hit all the best places to see in the Fairbanks area and he was very knowledgeable, interesting, and flexible. Linus even went out of his way to suggest an excellent place for dinner (Pump House, on the Chena River . . .). Here's a big :high five" to Linus and 1st Alaska Tours!

Our guide Joe couldn't have done a better job...very knowledgeable. Answered every and all questions without hesitation. And above that, made the tour fun. Would also say we are friends now. If we every come back we would ask for him for whatever tour we decided on.
