We even bumped into the lieutenant governor who Ben introduced us to at the hospital. It was one of the best tours we have ever done. Fantastic value for... More

The Pacific Prince Cruise from Whittier (near Anchorage) to Vancouver BC is a very fine cruise. The help is great, the food is good, and the entertainment is excellent. The Pacific Princess Cruise is a 7-day trip; either southbound from Whittier to Vancouver, or the reverse from Vancouver to Whittier. I would recommend a 3-day land tour in Denali State... More

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

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

Martin G, Manager at Alaska's Finest Tours & Cruises - Tours, responded to this review

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
