Heck Of A Road Trip!

Josh is the best tour guide ever! Sadly the aurora didn't peak out for us at all, but he made the trip fun all the way to the Artic Circle! He gave interesting facts about the land, the Alaskan pipeline, and life in Alaska in general! Warning: this is a long drive through the rough Dalton Highway. If you're not up for a serious roadtrip, this isn't for you. If you want to see various Alaskan views, book this now!

Josh was an awesome tour guide. He knew so much and his love of the area came through. Stops were amazing and right amount of time at each. Only comment is try to find a way to keep the windows from frosting over. It was frustrating not to see so much of the beauty around due to completely frosted over windows

We had a fantastic time. The trip was long but well worth it. Josh our tour guide was fantastic. He was friendly and took pictures for everyone even though his hands were freezing. I applaud him he did an awesome job. The Northern lights were a bit disappointing from what we expected to see, but it was okay we were told there was no guarantee. All in all great trip and worth the money.

Our guide Josh and co-captain Hanna were delights. Both are extremely knowledgeable but more importantly have a love for all things that make Alaska Alaska. This tour company is blessed to have them as part of their crew.

We enjoyed all the extra information Josh gave during the trip. He knew all the right places to take pictures. He was an extremely safe driver on the icy roads. Once when the wind was too strong he took turns taking pictures with all our phones so we would not have to get out in the windy weather.

Our guide, Josh, was amazing!!! He was kind and knowledgeable about each aspect of our trip. He checked on us to ensure we were enjoying ourselves and were comfortable in the van. Each stop, he gave us information about where we were and a little history behind the area. He was an excellent driver! I don't think I would want to drive the Dalton Highway in summer or winter.

Unforgettable trip to the Arctic Circle

Outstanding trip! The guide Gary was fantastic - he made the trip fun and informative with great authentic stories and humor! We saw all we hoped for like moose, obviously the Arctic Circle sign, enchanted icy forest s, and the crown- a wonderful display of the Aurora Borealis Sky. The trip is long but Gary, the guide made it and incredible and worthy experience. We also had an 11 year old and even he enjoyed immensely the experience- greatly recommended trip with Gary!

This was a great trip for the entire family and we had 11 year old with us. The guide Garry is outstanding conversationalist and made the 15 hour trip informative fun. We got everything we hoped for, we reached the Circle, saw few moose on the way, and heard great stories from Garry- best guide ever.
