Jul 2019 • Couples
I went on this tour in July 2019. It was very well organized with a fun, engaging guide. Pick up and drop-off was timely and the van was roomy and comfortable. Really appreciated getting to do this tour with a small group, rather than a big busload of people. The cultural center was fascinating and I enjoyed learning more about the early history of the area. One couple was in their 80's and David was very helpful with their mobility issues. We saw eagles, a bear, swans, and magnificent mountain scenery on the drive to the Chilkat Pass. It was an opportunity to see how beautiful inland southeastern Alaska and Canada area is and to learn more about the route we were on of the Klondike gold rush. David's love for the area and his enthusiasm for sharing it with visitors really made the tour exceptional. Recommend it as one of the best things to do from Haines, Alaska.
