Brian and I wanted to get to the Arctic Circle from Fairbanks. We came across a brochure from Turtle Tours, rang them and were lucky enough to get Jim to take us for the day. He arrived at our hotel at 6am in his large 4x4 and we spent the next 12 hours with Jim giving us a great trip... More

On our 4th trip to Alaska, we traveled to fairbanks for a 3 day road trip. Panning for gold at the Gold Dredge #8 and I topped off the trip with a flight to the Arctic circle. Another fantastic host by the State of Alaska.

Before we booked this trip, we looked into the larger tour companies, but they were all full. We had a brochure for Turtle Tours, called and spoke directly to "Jim," the owner. We are so glad we did! We took a day long Arctic Circle tour to Coldfoot, r/t from Fairbanks, which took 13 hours. Jim operates several personalized driving... More

This is a great company to take your adventure to the Arctic Circle with if you are looking for something smaller in size. We took a van for this excursion. Betty was our driver. She was very funny, polite and interesting. Checking out the Trans-Alaska Pipeline system and the Yukon River were bonuses. I enjoyed the stop at the Yukon... More

I'm fascinated by the other positive reviews, but I guess we caught Jim on a bad day because it was one of the worst experiences in Fairbanks. Basically all I remember from the trip is that we spent 12 hours sitting in the middle of a van with 7 others. He didn't talk to us the whole ride and pretty... More

We took a day tour to the Arctic Circle on Feb 28th and Jim was very accommodating with the departure time. We had a informative and exciting trip. He has been doing this so long he has made friends with the gray jays and feeds them while you have lunch at the circle.

If you have time for a one-day trip from Fairbanks we highly recommend the Arctic Circle Turtle Tour---the scenery is gorgeous and the "door-to-door" service is outstanding--the owner/driver picked us up at our Bed & Breakfast and provided us with an assortment of guidebooks to read during the trip in addition to providing us with a commentary on the construction...
