    The description on the website and what you get don’t really match. Pretty disorganized. Springs pool house was pretty gross, if you don’t like germs, don’t pay for this tour. Ice house was semi-interesting, but not worth the admission. $15 apple (pucker) martinis (cheap vodka).

    Nice tour guide. Unfortunately I did not realize the tour was only at the resort I was already staying. I couldn’t cancel as it stated no refunds. Missed the first 2 hours as they were picking up people from other areas. Paid over $500 (3 people) to tour the ice museum which is

    Hello from North Pole, We would like to take a moment to explain what happened on this day. We reached out to you multiple times to make sure that you understand, what this tour would include for you, if you are staying at the Hot Springs Resort. The reply we received was: “we do understand this, but we didn’t know that we would be staying at this Resort, at the time of the tour booking.” Not even once was mentioned that you would like a refund. Furthermore, our policy and the tour description explain that our tours are nonrefundable and that we can only pick you up inside the city limits of Fairbanks and North Pole. This is made very clear, before booking, at the time of booking and in your confirmation mail. However, we like to help out our customers as much as we can and could have offered you a rain check, a transfer to a different person or even a different tour. It is difficult for us to help you out, if we are not being made aware of any issues, and are being told that our customers are happy with what they will receive. Our guide still tried to make your time as pleasant as possible. We still hope that you had a great stay at the Resort and that you enjoyed our beautiful Alaska. Kind regards, your AWG team

    We took part in this tour a few days ago and had such a great time! Lynley was such a wealth of knowledge, and she really went above and beyond to ensure that we had the best time we could have, which included giving us some treats to slip to the goats. There was a bit of snow

    My friend and I came from Seattle in hopes of seeing the Aurora. Brian was our tour guide and we were his first tour! He's lived in the area for a long time and knew of cool scenic areas to take us to. We saw the pipeline and 2 moose crossing the highway on our way up to the
