The tours that were not guided or organized by Road Scholar were excellent. However, the organization of the timing of going to restaurants, parks, hotels, etc. was extremely poor. Times continued to change even within 5 minutes. Restaurants and tours didn't seem to be reserved as the response was they couldn't serve us as they were full or because they had other tours directly before or after ours that made it difficult to help/serve us. To make matters he had no direction from the cooperate office with any of this. We flew "by the seat of our pants". The trip to Barrow was rescheduled for one day. We flew to Anchorage, made another stop, and then arrived at Barrow for lunch. We left after dinner, flew to Anchorage and then back to Fairbanks. Too much flying. Our original itinerary included a night in Barrow, but it was cancelled a week prior to the trip because there was no room in the hotels. Our original guide left at the last minute, so we were given a new guide. He was very nice but had never done this tour before and didn't have the knowledge needed. (He'll be a good guide, but no one should be in charge of a group without going through it as a helper.)Luckily, we had a good bus driver who had been through this tour and was able to help us. It really would have been better to cancel the trip and use your money for another one. Hopefully, RS will make improvements in the future.
