We had not been on a cruise since our honeymoon, 45 years ago! We travel 9 months out of 12, but we always told people; "We are not cruise people." That has changed! Another couple encouraged us to take this phenomenal trip with them and because of them, we agreed. It was a delightful experience and we hope to take... More

What a great experience! We had a very special reason for visiting Big Lake and Alaska's Finest Tours & Cruises really came through with an exciting, yet economical tour for 3 of us to visit Big Lake via a float plane. Chuck, our pilot was experienced and did a great job of playing tour guide during our flight. He really... More

I jusr returned from an afternoon tour with Ben of AK Finest Tours & Cruises, after taking their wildlife and glacier tour. WOW, what a day! Ben is terrific -- tells all kinds of stories and interesting facts along the way, and keeps his groups small for maximum attention to each of his customers. The wildlife part of the tour... More

My husband and I did the All Around the City tour with Martin in Anchorage on our last day in Alaska. It was SO MUCH FUN and worth way more than we paid for it. Martin, a born and bred Alaskan, picked us up from our hotel in the morning. We got to see all of Anchorage, and we learned... More

Thank you for your wonderful review. The tour was designed to allow tourist opportunity to see the outskirts of Anchorage at a reasonable price while giving opportunity to get out at each stop. We take great pride in showing you areas that are not covered by most tour operators. This leaves you to take in other sites in the downtown... More

The agency was most helpful, organized, and easy to get ahold of either by email or by phone. My camera slid out of my bag and under the next bus seat, so I got off the bus in Seward without it. They so graciously went and got it and delivered it to the hotel that we stayed at the next... More

Did a seven day cruise with 5 day land excursion. Princess did a great job herding hundreds / thousands of us from port to port and then on land from resort to resort. Great attention to detail. The scenery was breath taking, unimaginable beauty. As a tourist, we barely had to think ... on land we received a transfer packet,... More

The Glacier and Wildlife Explorer Tour was exactly as advertised. The driver arrived at our hotel at the designated time and we were off for the Portage Glacier. The passenger van was full for this trip and I was somewhat crowded in the last row (I am 6' 5"). The driver was friendly but it was difficult to hear him... More

Thank you for your review. I am glad the company was able to meet your expectation with the exception of not being able to hear well. Sometimes when the van is full the conversations can override the drivers’ narrative. Our driver is always on hand at each stop and is more than willing to recap narratives when necessary or make...

During our stay in Anchorage we were fortunate enough to book an amazing trip with Alaska's Finest Tours & Cruises. With a Native Alaskan owner and tour guide the company did not disappoint!
