Fascinating, fun trip with well-informed guide. A look into local lifestyle in a remote section of Alaska.
Despite being a long ride, it was an awesome trip, because of our guide Randy, very informative, funny guy and informative. The scenery in the way was really beautiful. All the stops very memorable.
Dom our tour driver did not stop at all the stops and there was no commentary - the scenery was fantastic and stunning well worth the drive just needed a better tour driver.
Our guide Randy from 1st Alaska Tour was great ! He is very experienced in outdoor survival especially winter survival due to his prior experience in outdoor survival for the past 30 years not forgetting to add that he is a former US marine. During the trip, he gave us a lot of information on Alaska wildlife and share with us on his past encounters during his remote stay in the wilderness. He made numerous stops on the way to the Artic Circle for scenic views and photo shots, and on our way back we also manage to catch the beautiful sunset. I must say 1st Alaska Tour is a very good tour agency with experienced guides and strongly recommend using them for their professionalism.
Great trip. Gary our tour guide had lots of interesting facts to share with us. Even though it was a long day well worth the time.
Was a very interesting day. A lot of miles covered and Dave gave great commentary.
Complete waste of 12-14 hours. Nothing to see and nothing to experience. Yes, one can claim that she/he was on the arctic circle. That's all. The road was brutal and 10 hours on non-paved road took a toll on us.
Plan for a long day, but one filled with current facts, history, geographical information, panoramic views and stories of survival. The four in our party ranged from 12 to 69. Randy, our guide, provided us with an adventurous day.
My wife and I did this trip yesterday and this has to rank among one of the most wonderful trips we have ever taken. We were a little bit perturbed at the length of this trip this being a road trip but the time just flew by. Our tour guide Kaloeb was just amazing, full of knowledge, full of information, ever ready to show us his knowledge of the area and surroundings. His passion showed through and he made this road trip a very enjoyable one. Highly recommended.
My husband and I looked forward to this trip for months and I must say I was disappointed. I read all the wonderful review from previous clients and our trip just did not achieve the same standard. Our driver/guide was very nice and a good driver but as this was his first time taking a group to the Arctic Circle he was poorly organized and had little information to share with the group regarding the area and Alaskan history and lore. We did enjoy seeing the Alaskan Pipeline up close as well as Finger Rock and the surrounding rock outcroppings. There is not much to see at the Arctic Circle, basically the sign shown in the photo, but it was still a great bucket list thing to do. It is a long, bumpy drive, as we expected, and it would have been great to have had some ongoing dialogue from our Guide regarding what we were seeing during our 14 hour day. With a different Guide I would still recommend this tour.
This was an amazing tour. Cassie kept us entertained all day with her stories and facts about Alaska. She even had a special travel playlist for the drive up the Dalton highway. Everything about this tour felt personalized and was well done.
Excellent tour. Small tour was awesome. We were picked up on time. Allowed enough time to explore and were entertained along the way.
Very long day!! The temperature at Arctic Circle was
VERY warm - not at all what was expected!!
The trip was fabulous! Aryn was a great and safe driver and tour director, he was friendly and had lots of great information. The tour was fabulous and I am so glad I decided on this one!
Our Arctic Circle tour was an amazing experience with a nice tour guide Randy, who was very informative and knowledgeable. This was our first day at Alaska and we had lot of scenic views en-route to the Arctic Circle. Do carry a light jacket as it gets cooler during the day and also wear fully covered clothes.
Cassy is awesome. Vey well informed tour guide, entertaining and an awesome driver.
An awesome and memorable trip.
The tour was wonderful. Best of all was the travel guide, Cassie. She was full of information about Alaska and had stories to tell relating Alaskan lore. I would recommend this to anyone interested in knowing about and seeing the real Alaska.
