Exceeds Expectations
Jul 2021
My 78 year old mom and I took this excursion as part of our Carnival Miracle Alaska Cruise. It completely exceeded our expectations. The transportation staff from the excursion was so warm and informative about the area. We had a few photo ops for the Mendelhall Glacier, saw hundreds of bald eagles, stopped to see the fish ladder, etc. This driver was amazing! The boat was beautiful and the driver and naturalist were just as lovely. We learned so much about the whales. We were fortunate enough to see Orca whales that were traveling as well as many humpback whales. Our naturalist was well acquainted with the whale names and had pictures of the tails to prove it. The boat had perfect treats and drinks. Loved the onboard bathroom. Everyone had access to binoculars and photo opporunities galore. I highly recommend this trip for an adventure of a lifetime, the price is worth every penny.

Jul 2021
My wife and had the best time. We were the only two on the yacht besides the crew. Our excursion was July 2021---whales everywhere! The views were amazing. The crew and staff were all exceptional, in every way. We were picked up from the Sheraton Four Points in Juneau and chauffeured to the yacht. Alaska is a once in a lifetime trip for most people and if you're going to make the trek, then do it right and do it in style. This whale excursion is how you do it. Well worth every penny. Highly recommend.

Excellent Whale Watching, Beautiful Yacht
Jun 2021 • Friends
Went whale watching with my mother and friends. Flame and her calf, Bolt, were showing out for my mom’s birthday. Bolt checked out our boat up close and personal - liking popping up to tell her Happy Birthday (see photo). Flame was tail slapping, back stroking, and Breeching. I live in Juneau and have taken Alaska Luxury Tours twice now. I don’t think I could ever go with anyone else. The captain, first mate, and driver were friendly and professional. They truly care that you’re having an amazing experience. The food and booze was delicious. Highly recommend.

Book this immediately- worth every penny!
We loved this experience so much that we booked it twice during our stay in Juneau! From Brent’s great communication and pre-planning advice, to naturalists Steve and Dan’s wealth of knowledge, to the luxurious yacht, door-to-door service and delicious charcuterie and beverages, it was a PERFECT experience (twice!) for our family of 8. Everyone from the teenagers to the grandparents loved every minute. We saw (and listened underwater to) so many whales we lost count. We named new calves and learned so much about these magnificent creatures. We saw eagles, seals, and sea lions too - these folks definitely know where to take guests to see wildlife. Can’t say enough good things about this business and its amazing service!

The best way to see whales!
Aug 2019
We did this last summer and loved it so much that we were taking our kids, their spouses & kids this year - before COVID-19. But, we are rescheduling for next summer. We have been to Alaska on 7 different cruises. This is by far my #1 excursion. There are only 8 people on each boat. The beverages and charcuterie are great! The staff is superb - the captain & the naturalist. They know the whales by name, habits, pods, etc. By the end of the excursion, you feel like you do too. They do have binoculars on board to use. So, our group of 16 - 2 yachts - are very excited for 2021!

SO WORTH THE MONEY!
Sep 2019
This is a fabulous tour and the transport bus is super lush and comfortable! The naturalist and the boat captain were very knowledgeable and funny. They provide drinks and a charcuterie tray. It was amazing to see these animals! The mamma and the baby playing in the bay was a wonderful end to our tour!

Stunning!
Aug 2019
Emma and Jeremiah were the best! Emma is a true professional that loves what she does. Her excitement for whales is energizing! We were fortunate to see 6-7 whales on our trip. I would do it all over again in a heartbeat. Book the excursion, you will not be disappointed. It felt like we were old friends out on an amazing boat ride ready to take on the day. My husband and son loved every minute of the day. Thanks again!

SIMPLY THE BEST!!
Jul 2019 • Couples
We recently were on a Celebrity Cruise and booked Alaska Luxury Tours for our whale watching experience in Juneau. I could not be happier that we chose to go whale watching with these guys! We really wanted to have an elevated experience for a special birthday we were celebrating and Celebrity didn't offer the upscale, private environment I was looking for.... When I did some research (and let's be honest, look at all their FIVE STAR reviews on TripAdvisor alone....!!), I knew this was tour to book! I didn't want to be packed on a old boat with 50 other people with barely a view. With Alaska Luxury Tours, you get a beautiful YACHT, wine and champagne, a gorgeous charcuterie platter, a ton of information about the area and the whales....and what everyone wants...TONS of whale sightings! We honestly had the very best time...felt completely taken care of from start to finish (and did I mention their super plush Mercedes shuttle vans that pick you up and whisk you away - wow!). I tell you, not is detail overlooked here. Well done Captain Brent and Lillie! You guys exceeded our expectations and our expectations were already high! Can't wait to come back soon!!

Oh...and hey, Celebrity Cruise Lines!! You guys are missing the boat (haha....pun intended!) by not offering Alaska Luxury Tours as part of your offerings to your guests in Juneau! They are seriously amazing!

Blown away!
Jul 2019 • Family
Let’s just start by saying the crew was fantastic! From Emma who picked us up, to Jeremiah the captain, and Margie the naturalist on board, they were all top notch...and fun! We’ve been on a lot of tours in the past where the crew aren’t really loving their jobs, but that’s NOT the case here! The yacht was very comfortable, clean, and welcoming. We have a son who is in a wheelchair and the crew was so helpful to ensure he had a great view and felt comfortable! As for the main event we couldn’t have had better luck! We saw multiple whales and even learned their names based on their tails which our kids found fascinating. We saw seals playing on a buoy and too many bald eagles to count! Hands down the best tour we have been on! We were on a Disney cruise and chose this as one of our private excursions and I can say without a doubt it was well worth the expense. We even came home with some swag we purchased from the boat! You won’t go wrong with this company!

Best Tour Ever!
Jul 2019 • Friends
Our group of 8 recently returned from our cruise to Alaska. A few months before we left, I reached out to Brent and he responded immediately to my inquiry to go direct through them vs. the cruise line. I personally would rather deal with the company itself than go through the cruise line.

Brent was so friendly and helpful with giving me all the details about our how our trip would go! Any time I had questions in the time before our trip he was also very responsive. We were picked up from where we were in town shopping and whiskey away in the most comfortable Mercedes Sprinter Van. (On the way back most of us even fell asleep it was so comfortable!)

We arrived a few minutes early and the girls were still setting up the boat for our trip as they had just returned to the dock from the previous tour. The family before us said it was the best experience ever! A few minutes later we were on the boat and headed out. Emma and Julia (I believe that was her name) were both amazing. Everyone agreed that Emma’s passion for whales was amazing. We saw several whales and even a few sea lions. We enjoyed snacks, drinks, and fun conversation in a warm, cozy cabin despite the drizzly raining evening that we were having. We even had some delicious cake for desert.

Emma went the extra mile to answer any and all questions that we might have had about the whales and even helped me with what settings would be best to capture the whales on my semi-new camera that I don’t know a lot about.

Everyone thought the trip was one of the highlights of our trip overall! I would highly recommend using Alaska Luxury Tours as they are top notch. We got personalized service from the beginning to the end and got to experience it just as our little group. (We have stranger danger issues, just kidding). I will be recommending this tour to anyone we know that is going to Alaska.

Thank you Brent for all that you do and all your hard work dealing with me and my million questions along the way!

Cheers!
