If your desire is a trip to the Arctic Circle, Mr. Bill is the person to call. We had a lovely day in a comfortable van and saw a moose. Mr. Bill kept us entertained along the long road north with plenty of stories and interactive games. We had a great time.

This is a small group tour that takes the Dalton Highway to the arctic circle. The road follows the Alaska pipeline and was built to service the pipeline. Our tour leader, Bill, worked security on the pipeline and has in depth knowledge of the pipeline and details of the region. Although it was a long day, it went really fast and was very comfortable. Much of the drive is on unpaved roads, but they were decently maintained and not too bad. Bill was very considerate and made sure we got adequate breaks. It is a remote area and he stopped at every available rest area. We took the trip with really nice people and Bill made sure we had the opportunity to get to know each other and have two way discussions. My wife and I travel frequently and have taken many tours. This is one of the best we have taken and we highly recommend it. Thanks again Bill for a wonderful memory!

Although this is a long road journey, it was an enjoyable day from beginning to end thanks to our driver/guide, Bill. The mini van was comfortable and Bill ensured the tour was informative, entertaining and inclusive of all passengers. Highly recommend this company!

Me Bill was very communicative about the tour and everything you need to know even before we arrived. He is knowledgeable about the trip having worked on the pipeline. It was a long day but I never felt like I could rest- there was too much to see and talk about. There were plenty of rest/bathroom stops. You need to take food! There are not shops along the way. Mr Bill has snacks and beverages but you need to supplement with sandwiches. He is a great guide! Make sure you listen so, you do well on the quiz at the end of the tour. This tour is a great value

Small group(6) in a roomy van. Mr Bill was our host for this tour. He is a well informed historian of the area and loves Alaska. Got to know each other via question and answer games during the 12 hour tour. Several stops along the way for bathroom and sightseeing. Good group of well- traveled companions.
