Although it's hours and hours of being in a car, our guide, Dave 1 or Dave Schmitz, made it worth the while.
Absolutely an amazing trip. Our guide was the most informative guide , we have ever had. He was so knowledgeable in almost every topic. Would highly recommend! Even had a snowball fight at the artic circle.
Be prepared for a long day but it was great. The van we were in was new and comfortable. The lunch they served was homemade and very good.
It was a really good trip! Dave was an EXCELLENT guide. He was knew a lot about the country we were going through and had many stories. The only downfall as that his microphone in the van didn't work all the time so we had a hard time hearing everything. It was a very long day but so glad we went!
Absolutely superb! Our guide was very knowledgeable, helpful and fun to travel with. Cannot praise him or the trip high enough
The tour was very good! The tour guide was very knowledgeable and informative about the area. He made the drive enjoyable.
The tour was very interesting and informative.It was raining on and off along the way and it was muddy and bumpy but we enjoy it.Once your surrounded with nature you'll forget the dust ,mud,rain enjoy the freshness of the forest high on the mountain top everything is wonderful.Nicholas our guide is very knowledgeable about the area and the people as well as the animals that lives and tribe all along the way to the Artic Circle.Amazing tour.
Great tour. Long ride but the guide can make it seem short. Nicholas gave us several stops at pipeline, camps, landmarks and other interesting places. He had a lot in information on Alaska and aspects of living there. We picked wild berries and saw many animals along the way. We learned more on the trip that anywhere we went. The soup at the Arctic Circle is outstanding and is unique to this tour. Weather was not the best for us with light rain at the Sign only. It was a minor distraction to the trip.

This trip was a highlight of our Alaska visit. Our driver was Nick, after a little trouble getting his microphone to work he told us loads of interesting stories. The roads are pretty rough in places but we knew that in advance so were expecting it. We had comfort breaks at Hilltop and Yukon River. We were well catered for - a snack bag when we boarded the van and a delicious stew at the Arctic Circle, Highly recommend this tour!
The Dave man!!!! What a great story teller! Had some trouble with his new wireless mic. Ha ha. I didn't have an idea of what to expect that far north! Go look for yourself. Once you discover how rare it is for Americans to travel to the Arctic Circle you will want to go. Ask for Dave!!! Good stew for lunch. And they give you a bag of snacks as soon as you board the van.
It was an absolutely amazing daytrip to the arctic circle. Everthing, beginning with the contact before the trip to the trip itself was perfect. Uncomplicated email contact. The trip itself was astonishing! Our guide, Aart, was soooo funny keeping us awake on this very long trip. Awesome!!!!!!
this was a great trip up to the arctic circle..it was long but worth it...the tour guide Art was really good , very friendly, warm and knowledgeable. He told us a lot about the tundra region, gas pipelines, the wild animals, the life in tundra region etc.
Our tour guide was Dave, He is very knowledgeable, told us many his story, Dalton high way and Trans-Alaska pipeline system, I am very impressed when he said the pipe were bought from China.
Dave also very take care customers. The scenery was really beautiful. I will come back to see northern light someday.
Wonderful trip, knowledgable guide! It was a long day but we thoroughly enjoyed it.
It is about a 4 hour ride from Fairbanks mainly due to poor road conditions. We had a great tour guide who provided a lot of information and kept things interesting. We only did this trip to take a look at the Pipeline, enjoy the wilderness and to be part of the select few who actually venture inside the Arctic Circle.
We had a great day Art was very informative about the area, he was full of good conversation and while the trip was long but it went by very quickly. The small group was awesome. We loved it. Snacks for the trip and a lovely stew for lunch. And they picked us up from our BnB.

It was a very good trip, especially with Dave the van driver, he is very knowledgeable, has a lot of information which makes me occupied all the journey. Also the food was delicious.

The trip started fairly early in the morning.. we were just a small group of 4 and we had very personal attention from our Tour guide and driver David. We were very well looked after. We had enough food to eat and lunch was very special... a treat in the woods... I would certainly recommend this trip .. a must see destination..
Dave was a great guide! Shared great stories with us throughout the trip and went out of his way to make sure that we're happy and comfortable. Will recommend him to anyone keen on this tour!
It was a nice trip. The guide/driver was nice. Upon departure, he introduced us all aspects of the city of Fairbanks and Alaska, history, etc. The scenery was really beautiful. Definitely worth it. The only minor problem is that there was no regular restroom during the trip.
Our tour guide was David S. He was the best! David was very careful on the road and we felt safe. I appreciated that because it can be a dangerous road. We made stops along the way and he let us take pictures and walk around. Every stop was an adventure of it own. No matter what the situation David made the best of everything. He shared many interesting stories and we learned a lot about Alaska. He related well with everyone in our group. My daughter who is 24 also enjoyed this tour very much. David has a special way of relating to everyone. On the way back he even pointed out the starting of the Auroa's and let us have time to enjoy them a bit. We are thankful David was our guide and that he helped make this an enjoyable and memorable experience.
