At the tail end of a cruise to Alaska we decided to book a tour to the Arctic Circle. After reviewing trip advisor reviews, we selected Arctic Turtle Tours and were not disappointed. RayDean was an excellent guide and inspired confidence in her knowledge of the areas we visited and her driving ability. While we saw only a few examples... More

Tour was good, guide Kurt was great. I did a day tour....I got to see the pipeline and the Arctic circle. I was happy with the tour (except it would have been nice to have veggie options for lunch). Be prepared for a lot of driving, about 4.5 hours each way. If the weather had been better, we would have... More

It is a 175 mile trek from Fairbanks to the Arctic Circle but the terrain and scenery changes constantly. We went in Feb and the Dalton Highway was a ice road a lot of the way yet our driver/tour guide (Jim) drove with skill and safety. Whatever te time of year this is a once in a lifetime adventure for... More

The trip was amazing and super fun!! We visited the pipeline, Yukon river and the Arctic circle! The scene along the driveway was superbly beautiful, and I took lots of good pictures! Also, we set up a camp fire, and we had an amazing lunch with hot dogs and snacks. I highly recommend it and if I go back to... More

I didn't realize that we would be driving for 10 hours until that morning, but we had such a great time with Kurt. He was great at adapting to our gang of 8 and pointing out interesting things, joking with us, and generally making 10 hours go by fast! Even if we could have driven ourselves, which you can't in...

We are from Mexico and we love the whole trip. Kurt was an amazing guide, he kept telling us about pipe line, animals and flora of Alaska! He also told us about the maintenance of the road. He was a great driver. The Arctic Circle wasn't that great, but the landscapes we were able to see and admire are worth... More

Bus arrived with driver, he hired a bus company and was expecting the bus company driver to do the description. He sent none of his own personnel. After 3 hours of nothing... More

What a great guy to converse with over the phone. I wish while we were in Fairbanks I could have met him.He went out... More

I called to see if I could get a float plane charter to the west of Fairbanks for my siblings and myself. They take off all the time from nearby my home. When I called the owner said he only does driving tours to the Arctic Circle and North of Fairbanks. He said the plane was for personal business. I've... More

The road to the Arctic Circle is rough and the rental car companies forbid renters to drive on it. It has a history of broken windshields, blown tires and vehicles sliding off the washboard surface and it has a high use by truckers. We only saw a couple cars on our trip and their vehicle like ours had a thick... More
