Cheryl Mullins was amazing on my culinary tour last week. She was more than informative and now that I'm home I cannot wait to try her salmon suggestions. I booked the tour not quite knowing what to expect through Holland America, and it was more than worth every penny.

I had a great experience with Thomas Pickerel today around Skagway. Although the weather was rainy and foggy when he picked us up, Thomas took us up the mountains into Canada to get some better weather and he had several fantastic spots. During the course of traveling to the various locations, our guide was able to talk about various features... More

This was a great tour - one of the highlights of our trip. Eric (our guide) clearly loves Alaska, and Haines in particular, and he was happy to share. Learned lots about the area. One of the nice things about it is that it was limited to ten people, so had a personal feel. He asked, more than once, what... More

In July, we had a picture perfect experience rafting down the Chilkoot Lake with Tom Lang. What a perfect guide. 200% capable and so knowledgeable about Alaska, flora, fauna, wildlife, the late, eagles, etc. It was such an enjoyable day. His navigation skills are awesome! We were certainly in capable hands. I know the other couple we were with felt... More

One of the highlights of our cruise through Southeast Alaska was an afternoon spent kayaking on beautiful Chilkoot Lake near Haines. There were two guides per about 6 double kayaks. Both were very attentive, gave good instruction about rowing and safety, and knew a lot about the flora and fauna of the area. Best of all, we spent about a... More

Preparing to sail on a one week cruise to Alaska, we looked over the shore excursions and found one, just one, that resonated with us, namely, a photo day in Haines with a photographer from RGA. I wrote to RGA and began an email and phone conversation with Joe, the owner, and Robert, the manager. With Joe's help we decided... More

We had a wonderful kayak adventure with Rainbow Glacier Tours. Our guides led us to terrific views of salmon spawning - and the accompanying bald eagles. They even made sure we paddled under a blue sky! It was a terrific day with terrific people in a truly awesome setting.

I just got back to the cruise ship from my photography adventure with Thomas Pickerel. On today's adventure, we drove toward the coastline and made a few stops along the way. The scenery was gorgeous, and Thomas did a great job working with each of us to compose a perfect shot. He has experience in using both Nikon and Cannon... More

Kayaking on Chilkoot Lake with Rainbow Glacier Adventures is not to be missed. While on our Alaskan honeymoon, my wife and I took this tour, and we are so glad we did. Joe and his team took care of us from the beginning. In fact, when we first arrived in Haines on the ferry from Skagway, we were walking with... More

Tom was a great tour guide! Very informative and witty.He took our group to several different areas around Haines that we wouldn't have seen on our own. He was also very informative about the usage of our cameras. I very much enjoyed this excursion and highly recommend it.
