      Dave picked us up promptly at the front of our Lodge. The van was clean and comfortable. Dave informed us it would be just the three of us for the day. He was quick to reorganize our day because we had already visited a couple of his scheduled stops. He was very knowledgeable and informative about the Fairbanks area and Alaska. We enjoyed our day and would recommend seeing Fairbanks in a small group. We learned so much more.

      We had a mixed group of 6 and visited 2 cultural museums that were very interesting. Then our guide let us choose between a few other places to visit. Since my husband and i had already been to North Pole and Pioneer Village, I suggested the Auto Museum. Well it was so fasinating I could have spend the day there. In addition to the beautifully restored antique cars there were manniquins dressed in period costumes that were simply exquisite .In all it was a wonderful day and Clark was wonderful

      Because one of their vans was inoperable and we might have had our tour cancelled, we agreed to go a day earlier with a guide on his day off. Clark arrived promptly and informed us we were his only passengers. He then proceeded to give us highlights of the tour and we explained what we had seen already on our own as we had a rental car, and what we would be interested in seeing. He also made suggestions and we explored Fairbanks for the next 5 1/2 hours. Clark is very knowledgeable about the past history of Fairbanks. We therefore got a history lesson with our tour. Clark, you made our afternoon a memorable one. To anyone taking this tour, ask for Clark. You won't regret it!

      This was an interesting and fun tour. Our guide was Art, he was full of interesting information and very funny. There were only 3 of us on the trip so Art allowed us to decide which sights to visit. Pioneer Park was a highlight. Highly recommend this tour!

      Patricia was wonderful! She arrived on time and showed us things we hadn't even considered. She's knowledgeable and is environmentally concerned. It's obvious she loves Alaska.

      We thoroughly enjoyed our Fairbanks tour. Our guide, Anke, was delightful, knowledgeable and informative. We were supposed to have a group tour, but we were the only ones, so we got a private tour. After showing us the places on the official tour, Anke asked what we wanted to see and also showed us some of her favorite places in Fairbanks and the surrounding area. What a wonderful day!

      Our guide, Patricia Baer, was very informative, very personable and a fun lady to spend a few hours with. I thoroughly enjoyed seeing and learning about Fairbanks and Alaska in general. As Patricia got to know me and my friend on the tour she actually personalized a portion of the tour for us to match our interest in bird watching.

      I highly recommend the Alaskan Heritage Tour - and of course if you are fortunate to get Patricia as your guide the tour will be excellent!
