    My friend and I took this tour (Arctic Circle) and wasn’t sure what to expect. The tour guide Bruce was AMAZING! He was funny and very informative with the area. He gave us plenty of time at each stop to walk around and enjoy the sights. We had the best time and will remember this tour for a very long time! Thank you Bruce and 1st Alaska Tours for helping make a bucket list come true!

    What a wonderful day. Josh was a great tour leader. The day was well paced and relaxing. We learned plenty about Alaska from Josh. I highly recommend the tour and the company.

    Had a great time on our ride to the Arctic circle. Linus was a fascinating guide, both for his Alaskan knowledge and his personal story living in a “dry” cabin. We learned about the interior of Alaska and got up close and personal with the pipeline. The Dalton Highway is mostly dirt and potholes but Linus navigated the road well and kept us feeling safe despite the numerous large trucks hauling mining equipment to and from Prudhoe Bay. Seeing a black bear and her cub cross the road in front of us was a nice bonus and reminded us that we were in a true wilderness. It was a long day but one of the best we had during our Alaskan vacation.

    It was a long drive, but we took sufficient breaks going and coming. At the Circle, we were loading up to begin the return and our driver, Bruce noticed the lynx watching us almost right next to the van. So we watched it watch us for several minutes before the cat got bored and wandered off. The best thing happened after returning to Fairbanks; our granddaughter left her hat in the van. I called at 3:30 AM to let them know. They called the next day and offered to meet us at the airport to return the hat, which happened as planned. Best in class service. Thank you.

    The entire experience with 1st Alaska Tours was great. All phone calls and email questions were answered quickly. Staff were very friendly and cooperative. Our tour guide "Bruce" was on time for our hotel pickup, and very friendly and professional the entire trip. It was an excellent experience and adventure and we would definitely recommend 1st Alaska Tours to others.

    It was a wonderful and interesting tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable and fun. The sights are awesome and something you don’t see every day. We saw moose and were fortunate to see a grizzly bear on our way back.

    If you make the trek to the top of the world, Josh absolutely needs to be your guide. He was personable, attentive, knowledgeable, witty, and a responsible driver on an otherwise dangerous road. Our Floridian son had never seen/played with snow, Josh knew exactly where a small patch of snow was for them to have a snowball fight. When another child was experiencing motion sickness, he knew where to stop so we could stretch our legs to relax and regroup. Aside from mosquitoes being infatuated with him and his van, make sure to pack your bug repellent if you are visiting during the Spring/Summer. The bugs did not take away from the experience, but will enhance your Alaska adventure. His stories and pictures from the Northern Lights tour have convinced my husband and I we need to come back during the winter and do this tour with him again. Don’t be fooled by the man from West Palm Beach, he was born to be an Alaskan and guide this tour. He was fantastic!!

    I was worried about how long the tour was but our guide, Joshua, was amazing. Top notch, all around great guy who gave us an amazing experience! Our added bonus was seeing the Northern Lights.

    What a awesome day!!! Josh is a absolutely great tour guide and safe driver. He is very experienced, told us about Alaska, patiently answered all our questions. We learned a lot about Alaska. On our way back to hotel, he stopped 3 different places, where he thinks the best spots for the northern lights. He helped us to take good pictures in the very cold temperatures. I’m very thankful. I highly recommend this tour company and this excellent tour guide.

    The Arctic Circle tour was A-W-E-S-O-M-E!!!!! It may have been an all day ordeal, but Josh was great! He made the event a memorable one!! Very informative about the Alaskan pipeline! Stressed the crossing into the Arctic circle as a unique experience, and he made sure we saw the Northern lights!! But, Josh made the trip!! Without his affability, it could have been a very long day!!
