Our guide was very knowledgeable about the town and the history. I was not a fan of the North Pole, it was a waste of time. I also thought that the trip was pretty boring, and could have included more exciting things about Fairbanks.

Firstly, our Guide RANDY was SUPERB!! He was beyond knowledgeable! He could answer any question with a very good explanation. He has done ‘everything’ and I was sad when the tour was over because I could have talked with him for hours... probably days! He made the trip interesting for everyone and we had a diverse group!
