If you're like us, seeking an unusual way to learn and experience the area, this Hummer excursion is for you. Crystal, our native guide, was friendly and filled with authentic information about the pipeline, self-sustaining family life in smaller inexcessible villages, nature (berries,herbs, etc) and the life of mushers. Being a native, she took us off road into areas where generic tours never go. We even visited Lance Mackey's Kennel where he raises dogs for the Iditarod Sled Race. By the way he's a 4 time Yulon Quest and Iditarod winner. We loved the tour and enjoyed Crystal's enthusiasm. (Answering a question below,she brought complementary snacks & beverages.)

Our first excursion in Alaska. Our native guide, Crystal, was lively, energetic and full of information. We stopped at the pipeline and then went backcountry to Lance Mackey's kennel where we were able to hold 6 week old puppies and have a chance to see a small team of dogs get to exercise. The people at the kennel were happy to answer questions and share their love of the sled dogs and racing with us. On the way back to town we stopped and picked wild raspberries and blueberries. A great time altogether.

The tour guide picked us up late which was ok until he started speeding on the highway which scared my daughter after he hit a bump and my daughter started crying, so our tour guide yelled at my daughter and turned around to go back to the hotel, didn't even slow down he actually started driving more reckless and shaking his head making rude remarks the entire way home. My poor daughter was traumatized from this experience.. Will never do it again!!!!!!!! Absolutely horrible!! Very rude guy

Very little to see on this 3 hour Hummer tour. Started off at University of Alaska Fairbanks for overview of city but it was overcast so really nothing to see. Then we stopped to see 4 reindeer in their cage lying down - should have gotten out and taken a shuttle back to the hotel at that point. We spent an hour on pitted back roads through a forest with no view and nothing significant to let us know we were in Alaska - it could have been any back roads, any where. The only thing worthwhile about the excursion was getting to see the Alaska Pipeline for 15 minutes at the end of trip. Also our guide was not very informative. The Hummer "holds" 10 guests and there were 8 on our trip. Ten would have been VERY crowded! Impossible to take pictures from the Hummer with the plastic windows down because the windows were so clouded so I guess it was a good thing that there was little to see to take pictures of. I would not recommend this trip at all and am sorry I wasted my time and money.

The ad read well and I was really keen to do the tour. Brad is very friendly and informative. However, for the price it's not worth it. A Hummer is great but this one is far too rough and uncomfortable because we spent far too much of the time on roads and then racing back on the highway. Stopped to view bird sanctuary...more like a farmer's field,maybe there was a bird in the distance, stopped beside the road to just be able to see two deer at the Research Station. Stopped at the university to see the view....misty couldn't see any mountains. Went off road to see animals. I'm sure the noise of the hummer would scare anything away. The pipeline stop was very good and informative and learnt a lot about the gold mine but to stop across the road from it didn't give us the best view. Snacks? First of all if you have that young man who you were training with you anymore, tell him not to reach in to the container and take two packets of the only decent biscuits there before anyone else had a chance .....dreadful.
Sorry this is mainly negative but having travelled a lot, this wasn't good enough. You make your money in the summer...don't rip people off.
