Our tour guide Lexi was great. She gave us a lot of information about Chene Hot Spring. Was with us all the time. She is very outgoing, friendly and cheerful. It was a pleasure to spend our time with her during the tour. The place itself is very beautiful, pleasant and conducive to relaxation. The restaurant has very tasty food and drinks and the staff are very nice and welcoming. We had a lot of fun and good memories.

Something to see around Fairbanks. We like our trip. Trip was more fun and enjoyable with Alaska tours and travel specially with tour guide/driver he kept all of us engaged, informed and entertained. It add that extra Alaskan favor to the trip. Thumbs up for Clark for his soft corner on TEXAS :)

our guide/driver Clark was amazing - knowledgeable & courteous. i really enjoyed this tour - from an appletini in the ice museum to a hot soak in the hot springs - horses, sled dogs, hiking - i had a full day of activities - i only wished i had made an appointment for a massage beforehand as they were all booked up when i arrived - but fantastic day!

My cousin and I loved everything about this tour starting with our guide Dave. He picked us up promptly at our hotel and passed on informative thoughts, while also entertaining us, during our drive to and from the hot spring. Once we were there, he made sure to show us around the grounds and to the Ice Museum. If at all possible, don't miss having a special cocktail mixed in your own ice goblet! Be sure to bring your i.d. if you do plan on purchasing one. We had a tasty and filling lunch at the resort between the museum and going into the hot spring. The hot spring pool is lined with large rocks and has a wonderful fine pebble bottom. It was fantastic with wonderful warm and hotter spots, a water jet and sprinkler. The changing room was clean and tidy. Be sure to bring 2 quarters for the locker storage. We went on several tours around Fairbanks and enjoyed them all, however this is one we would definitely do again!

Bravo to Viator but Chena needs a bit of work

The transportation, the scheduling, communications, and especially the driver (Clark) were the total highlights of this tour. The destination facility (Chena) is in desparate need of repair and maintenance. Ice museum was closed for repair. Almost all tours were cancelled. Covid and nearby forest fire can share some responsibility.

The hot springs was great, the tour guide/driver also was very good. They didn’t have the ice museum functioning. The restaurant was average.

Our Tour guide Clark was amazing and made the tour exciting. Added the pipeline stop and refunded the ice museum tickets, since they closed due to a mechanical issue. Hot springs in Alaska was a great experience.
