We did this tour with our 10 year old granddaughter. We were the only ones on the tour this day but our Guide, Gary Tupper, was excellent, sharing a lot of local knowledge as well. The museums were interesting and informative for us all. We found the pipeline very interesting and unfortunately did hit one of Santa's days off, but nonetheless, the shop was extensive. We also stopped at a wood shop Gary knew and it was interesting how the can make bowls and decorative items from wood. We did purchase a bowl commemorating how home state's statehood. Gary never rushed us and made the trip even more interesting with his local knowledge. I recommend both the tour and particularly Gary. We would definitely do it again if we return to Fairbanks.
Brandon, our guide arrived promptly at 8 and it turned out that we were the only two people on this tour. He was very enthusiastic and exceptionally knowledgeable about the Fairbanks area as well as the native people who originally inhabited Alaska.
We visited the Fairbanks native peoples cultural center and learned more about the people who originally inhabited Alaska. Brandon guided us through the exhibits and explained how the artifacts related to the very survival of the original Alaskan people. We then visited the Alaskan Pipeline and saw how it was constructed. We also visited University of Alaska at Fairbanks where they had a very fine museum of more recent Alaskan history. Our last stop was to the city of the North Pole where we visited and took pictures with Santa Claus. Surprisingly, they also had a Christmas Gift Shop there too.
It was a great day tour!
Excellent tour with interesting information very well presented by Tristen. It was great that Tristen was a native of Fairbanks and had many valuable pieces of historical information. He was able to put them into context so that we were able to get a very good picture of Fairbanks and how it came to be, from founding to the present. He also was able to discuss how it might evolve as future events might impact the future of Fairbanks.
Tristen was very patient and thorough in his descriptions at the various stops and along the way between stops. He was able to present an excellent overview of Fairbanks over the course of this tour. FIVE STARS earned.
Worth the money the tour takes the worry out of driving, parking and sightseeing. The very knowledgeable driver/tour guide adds tremendously to the visit to Fairbanks

Prompt, friendly and accommodating. Barbara adjusted our tour to our needs. She is knowledgeable about her city and shared that with us. The Morris cultural center is especially good. It was well worth seeing.
Great tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable and went out of his way to show us a good time!
Excellent tour. Very informative Randy did a first rate job
Our tour of Fairbanks was excellent.
Our driver/guide was Randy, and we learned so much about life in Alaska.
Both museums were very interesting, and it was a lot of fun to visit the North Pole and help Santa to mail customized letters to our grandchildren.
It was a good tour. Our tour guide Randy was very informative and quite a character. He was our guide the day before going to the arctic circle. I really enjoyed going to the North Pole and meeting Santa.
