    We had a wonderful experience at the end of the season in September. Not only ly was the tour through the parks and visiting the glacier breathtaking, but our guide Derrick was wonderful. He was full of knowledge and was very personable. A great time overall and worth a full day to travel from Anchorage!

    Great time on the cruise and would definitely recommend to family and friends. Hope to come back soon

    This was a phenomenal experience. We made lots of stops to see some unique things that the area had to offer. We stopped at a rainforest for a few minutes, but it was worth the stop. The tour guide had facts about everything! He was truly committed to making sure we enjoyed our time. Make sure you bring some warm layers for the boat ride! It can get chilly! I went alone and had a great time with the group

    Derek! Derek made the tour. He was informative and knowledgeable and willing to share his expertise on Alaska. We took his tour on our first full day in Anchorage, and it was the perfect start to our vacation. Thanks, Derek!

    Michael was our guide for the Glaciers and Wildlife tour. The tour company accommodated to pick me up at where I was staying since I didn't have a car, and it was extremely helpful and generous. It was a small group (6 of us plus guide), and the van was spacious and comfortable. Michale is very informative about Alaskan life. He is willing to listen to the guests' interests and offer anything to help our needs. We didn't have favorable weather for the cruise (rain and wind), but luckily we could get on the cruise to see the glaciers. It was raining at the Wildlife Conservation Center, so he offered a safari style of tour to drive us around. We were still able to get on/off the van to see the animals. I had a great time taking this tour, and I highly recommend it.

    This was a fantastic “highlights” tour - mountain ranges, stunning scenic stops, a glacier and the absolute best bit was the wildlife centre. We arrived as a lot of the animals were being fed so we were up close with moose, reindeer and the bears. Our guide, Derek, was incredibly knowledgeable and helpful - answered all our many questions and gave really useful hints and tips - he was great.

    Our tour guide Derek is one of the best! He is professional, respectful, knowledgeable and kind. Derek treats his work not just a tour guide, but more like doing a research project - he's tremendously enthusiastic about the history, geography and geology along the scenes we visited. Derek made our tour great!

    Our driver, Mike, was very knowledgeable. Gave us alot of information. The stops were very nice, despite the rain. Would definitely do this again.

    This was such a fun day! Lori is amazing and so knowledgeable about everything Alaska! The van trip was so entertaining listening to her dialogue and explanation of what we were seeing. She had a great sense of humor. The glacier tour was great and the wildlife experience so cool. This is a can’t miss if in Anchorage!!!!

    Derek is an outstanding guide. We saw many beautiful places which were enhanced by his enthusiastic commentary. We had 2 teenagers with us and he kept them actively engaged.
