Bill was knowledgeable and personable. Pick up was on time and we had a comfortable van. The Cultural center had wonderful exhibits with information about the historical way of life. The stop at the pipeline showed just how massive the engineering was for this structure. We enjoyed the history and artifacts as well as artwork at the university museum. The campus was gorgeous at the top of the hill side. The North Pole stop was fun to say you were there. The reindeer yard was fun to see. The gift shop had Christmas items for everyone on your list.
