Our Alaska Cruise included Ports of Ketchikan, Juneau and Skagway. Our Land Tour included Denali National Park and Mt. McKinley. Our trip was outstanding. The Crown Princess is a beautiful ship. The Land Tour included 2 nights in Denali National Park staying at the beautiful Denali Princess Wilderness Lodge. We also stayed one night at the Mt. McKinley Wilderness Lodge.... More

One of our best highlights to any trip was our cruise on the Zeirdam Holland America cruise ship. This ship has approx 2000 passengers but at no time did we feel crowded even in the restaurants as long as you used common sense at meal times. Our stateroom cabin with veranda was worth every dollar. the cabin boys were spot... More

This was the most amazing tour with very personalized service. We were picked up at our hotel by Ben, who was the most wonderful tour guide. We stopped at many sights along the way to take the most amazing pictures. We were there visiting our son who is in the Army stationed at JBER and we wanted this to be... More

We cruised Alaska and it has it's adventures I am sure, but we were in the shopping mode. I loved the shop after shop to buy souvenirs and foods and just see the everyday way the people live. There are small steep hills right in town to walk on that have houses built on the side and the views are... More

This tour was my favorite of all the tours we took. It was at the end of our trip, our last day, and we wanted something special. The Glacier cruise and the wildlife conservation center tour was what we chose. We were not disappointed! Ben went beyond what we expected. He was full of information and took us to special... More

Ben who is the owner/operator, did the most fantastic tour. He picked us up at our hotel promptly and informed us of everything that we would be doing. He went above what we expected and even took us to some of the local community. I am having to use a cane for mobility and he was very conscientious about making... More

The mix of glacier cruise, Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center and photo opps along Seward highway was perfect. We had been on a lot of Alaska tours this month but This one was one of the... More

It is a nice 5-6 hours activity and wonderful sights to see. The only thing we did not like about the tour was our tour guide, Ben. He did not seem like enjoying what he is doing. He was not informative and does not even care about telling people what he is going to do next. At one point, he... More

Hi I am so sorry that you feel that way. I do try to go the extra mile when time allows. That is why I offered the Byron Glacier walk which was an extra last minute add on because the group seemed fit and able. Before we took off for the short walk I did inform the group that most... More
