Everything was so awesome. The uniqueness of the places, the tour itinerary, and even our driver/guide—- Jake. Our tour commenced 2pm and ended 5am the following morning, the snow on the road was a bit challenging; but his driving was smooth and we really enjoyed! He also had a good grasp on secret spots for Aurora viewing on the way down from Arctic Circle. He was so patient, we had various stops for a superb surreal Northern Lights experience!

We had a fantastic tour with Tony as our guide who was knowledgeable and safe in driving the icy Dalton highway. The tour took few hours to reach Arctic circle around 10 pm and worth to see the change of view from sunny afternoon to sunset and then dark environment . Tony was a safe driver and cautious to let those ruthless truck drivers passed by. We highly recommended the tour with TONY !

Jake is a very safe and reliable driver during our 14-hour ride. We saw some amazing views of frozen pine trees and half-frozen Yukon River. We also spot some caribous in the dark. On our way back Jake went out of the way and made every stop possible for us to catch pictures of the aurora. He answered all my questions in great detail about the science behind the aurora. He’s very knowledgeable and patient. It’s such a long and arduous ride, and it’s amazing how Jake did it so well. I really appreciate his warm hospitality and great conversations! I highly recommend this tour!

One of awesome experience that everyone should have to have in their lifetime. Josh was such an amazing tour guide. He has quite good knowledge about everything and had stopped few spots to take some pic on our way to circle. It was quite long drive then had few stops for bathroom and strech our legs.It was eye popping sightseeing with icy road and trees but had no luck to see any wildlife during the trip.On our way back he had stopped in multiple spots to see the lights unfortunately we didn't see it. Value for money

I took this tour last week & our guide Mr.Tony was very well entertaining & so informative.He kept us all 7 people on his van entralled all through out our ride to the Arctic Circle.We couldnt see the Northern lights, tho' due to the rains & fog etc.....But am glad to have gone there just to get the experience of being there @ the Circle...I might come back again soon in the near future cos I have not had enough this !!!.....The Dalton Highway is sure a great adrenaline pushing ride......Tony was so funny too...especially the way he told us the story of how he was riding with the 300lbs "Slope" oil workers & their 3 months old unbrushed teeth...lol!!!
