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! The drive along Turnagain Arm was beautiful as Ben, our guide, informed us of many of the highlights and also about Alaska's history. Our special stops were... More

Ben, our tour guide was very informative, and surprised us with several stops along the way which made for some spectacular pictures! We learned so much about the history of the area, the landscape, and felt very taken care of the entire time. Ben even offered to drop us off at Mount Aleyaska and pick us up during his later...

This Cruise was really Awesome, through the inside passage, to watch the glaciers was something that we will never forget, and again Princess was great, the service and food was great. The 5 day land tour was just fantastic with everything so well organised and the weather was a stand out.

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
