From the moment we met our guide for the day he was knowledgeable and friendly. We got on a bus from the pier... More

One of the best Excursions we had in Alaska. This is a wonderful place to go, the tour guide Brook was just fantastic. The instructor Addison was awesome, a wonderful instructor and all around funny guy. I was a bit skeptical when my wife booked the trip, but it was a great time. The Gardens are beautiful and they feed... More

Wonderful! Such an experience! Skagway seems to be known for the train ride, but if you want to do something off the beaten path, this is your ticket! The process of glassblowing was really fun! You make a simple orb, but if feels like so much more. Plus, it's a wonderful souvenir to take home; made by YOU in Alaska.... More

This was my tenth time taking a cruise and my husband booked the glassblowing excursion for myself, our 13 yr old daughter & 8 year old son. Brooke was our guide. She took us to this wonderful glassblowing studio nestled amongst some of the most peaceful and creative gardens i've ever seen. There were glass figurines placed amongst the flowers... More

My wife and I were on a cruise on Princess Grand for our 30th anniversary. We picked this excursion because it was very different from any excursion that we had ever taken. ( we have been on 9 or 10 cruises). From the start the guide, Kate meet us at the pier and was extremely friendly and outgoing. She then... More

We participated (again) in the glassblowing experience. This time our outstanding guides/tutors were Sarah and Keeper. I am still dazzled by working with molten glass and producing a viable keepsake. Thanks to both for making this a safe and sane adventure.

Sam, the craftsmen, was also wonderful. He helps you with the whole glass blowing process and is a very patient teacher. You can... More

We thoroughly enjoyed this attraction. Kate and Sam were the best. Kates enthusiasm was contagious. She went above and beyond to make sure all had a great time. Sams skills were unmatched. He was patient helping us blow our own creations and didn't seem to mind having to repeat the same thing over and over for each guest. The gardens... More
