Tracy was very knowledgable and could answer all the questions asked by the group. The hike was intimate with only 8-10 people which made it nice to hear questions, comments and answers.

We learned so much about the Tongas rain forest and the Totem park. We would highly recommend the tour to anyone that can do a mild hike (a few steep steps).

We also love the fact that Tracy is local and shared other facts about Ketchikan not related to the Rain Forest (like housing/gas/food prices, schools, etc).

Our favorite tour! As one of the first ships in Ketchikan on a repositioning cruise, my husband and I were pleasantly surprised to find ourselves the only guests to have booked, giving us a personal tour. The hike was breathtaking, paced appropriately to enjoy the surroundings and Tracy took time to weave in local history, botanical info and special sights along the way and back. Our cruise ultimately concluded in Vancouver, where we enjoyed the Anthropogy Museum of UBC, very happy to have had Tracy's background on the navite Tlingit culture, customs, food and legends. This tour had everything: nature, history, pristine scenery and the local totem museum, art and artifacts. We will absolutely do it again with our family and grandchildren, including reserving a personal tour at the outset.

We enjoyed our rainforest tour as well as the totem pole tour. Tracy is charming and very knowledgeable about Ketchikan and was eager to share its history and hers with us. The drive to the head of the trail was also informative thanks to Tracy. Our feedback would be that this is more than a walk with a few stairs. There were quite a few stairs and some of them were over a foot high. We don’t have a problem with a long walk (we just retuned from Dublin where we did a five mile walk around the City which included stairs), but this had too many stairs to point that I had a hard time enjoying my surroundings. Perhaps you could be more clear about this tour with plentiful stairs vs your tour with just a flat trail? We wish you all the best for your business and family in the months and years to come!

Thanks for taking the time to write review, we appreciate your feedback. We do try to include in description that there are several sets of stairs on the 3 hour tour and that the 2 hour does not have any stairs. It is important to us that guests have wonderful experience on the trails. Thank You!

Our rainforest walk and totem Park tour was unexpectedly wondrous and magical. Like no other experience the juxtaposition of towering snow covered mountains and a temperate rainforest was just unbelievably beautiful. Our tour guide who is in native to the area was extremely knowledgeable and makes a heck of a salmon dip.

We had a stop in Ketchikan on an Alaska cruise. Doing some research on Trip Advisor, it appeared that Wild Wolf Tours of the rain forest and Totem Park had excellent reviews. Having a few questions, I called, leaving a message. Tracy, the owner (with her husband) called back very promptly and answered all of my questions. I booked the tour. We were met by Tracy right where we got off the cruise ship. There was a total of six of us for the tour. The drive to the location of the rain forest hike was about 45 minutes, during which time Tracy told us about the area we would be visiting as well as her personal story living in Alaska. She was very engaging. The rain forest was beautiful, with views of waterfalls, streams, and incredible foliage. We even saw a few banana slugs. The pace allowed time to take many photographs of the lush scenery. Returning to our van, after a snack provided by Tracy, our next stop was Totem Park, where we saw many totem poles and learned about their history, meaning, and how they are created. Following that we visited the small museum and gift shop at Totem Park. It was a great three hours with Tracy. I highly recommend this tour - you will not be disappointed. I am not sure if the tour is available through the cruise lines, but it is certainly available on the Trip Advisor website. It deserves five stars, and it is always nice to support a family owned business.

Tracy was an amazing guide. She is a local and has some amazing stories and folklore tales. She pointed out a bear feeding in the river that we would have totally missed due to in being camouflaged. She is friendly, easy to talk to and very knowledgable. We did the 3 hour totem pole and rainforest tour which was much cheaper than booking through the cruise ship. I highly recommend this tour. You never know what you are going to see !!! (and P.S. she serves an amazing smoked salmon dip!!!).

Loved this adventure! Our tour guide Torah grew up here and is from a long line of family from here. I can't remember which clan she was from but hearing the stories and the traditions was very interesting.
We did a walk through the rainforest, there were many stairs up and down if that is an issue it would be hard to do, but we loved it. Torah is very knowledgeable about the rain forest and the many things in it so it was very interesting. Loved the sounds of all the waterfalls!
Torah also had local salmon dip for snacks which was very nice as well.
Would recommend this trip to get a sense of the culture of Ketchikan and to really see and feel a rain forest.

I was able to take the 3 Hour Rainforest Walk and Totem Park excursion. Natalie was our group guide (I was solo) and I cannot be more grateful for her knowledge, attention to every detail, and warm personality. Her sense of wonder and excitement to share in the encounter made the trip one of the most special I've ever experienced. I continue to look back at photos taken there and hope to return soon--as soon as I can!

I cannot recommend this excursion highly enough if you are looking to experience the beautiful peace the nature of Ketchikan has to offer in a small group setting. Learning the history and culture of the native Haida, Tlingit, and Tsimshian people was a huge highlight and unforgettable.
