This was an amazing tour and our group enjoyed our time. We especially loved the raptors and viewing the river where the salmon were spawning. In addition, we had an exceptional tour guide, Yvonne. She really knows her stuff and makes you feel so welcomed.

Unfortunately due to COVID-19 our cruise scheduled for June was cancelled. This was a tour that my wife and I were really looking forward to. I reached out to the company inquiring about a possible refund and received a response very quickly letting me know that they would be issued a refund. I was extremely impressed with the level of customer service and am hoping to take another Alaska Cruise in 2021. I will definitely book another tour with them without hesitation.

This was a wonderful tour and birthday celebration, most especially due to our amazing guide, Lindsay!! As a native of Sitka, she knows every inch of this beautiful place and shared her joyful knowledge with us along the way. I highly recommend the premium tour. There were only 7 of us in a comfortable small van. You will see unforgettable sights!!

We have been to Alaska four times but first time to Sitka. We were on a cruise but I always try to book non-cruise affiliated excursions because they are usually less expensive and much better. This tour was one of my favorites because of the quality of our tour guide, her lovely personality and knowledge of the area where she was born and raised. Please remind me of her name. Can't remember and I want to give her kudos for such a wonderful experience. We were on van #3 on 7/16/19 at 12:45 pm. She woke up at 3 am to go fishing with her husband then did our tour. Besides our guides knowledge and personality, my favorite part of the excursion was Fortress of the Bears. They had to drag me out of the building because I could have stayed there all day to watch the bears play. The owners of the company, Bruce and Rhonda were also very friendly and nice to talk to. Highly recommend this tour.

We thank you for joining us in Sitka during your Alaska Vacation.We are so happy when all our hardworking pays off in making memories to last a life time!

Very positive experience with local tour group. Vans were nice and clean, guide was friendly and knowledgeable, and tour sites were well chosen. Liked the TOTEM park and visitor center a lot and also the fortress of the bears. I got lots of bear photos. Fortunately the viewing area was partly covered so we were able to get pictures without standing in the rain. Good "bang for the buck".

We (extended family from ages 12 -70s) loved this tour! Tour was small and bus/van was comfortable and easy to get in/out on our stops. Lindsay was a great guide: so friendly, made it a point to learn our names, taught us all about local flora and fauna - on land, sea, even in the air (several eagles around). She is knowledgeable and respectful of the local history (per Lindsay, non-natives are not supposed to share the actual stories of the totem poles, etc, but she did inform us on the history). We booked through Costco and were not disappointed. Highly recommend

On our Alaskan Cruise one of our stops was Sitka, which is a very cute little town but the highlight of our visit was this tour.
We hardly every take the excursions offered by the cruise line, we always try local companies and this time we hit the jackbox!

Sikta Wildlife Tours are the best!, they are smaller group tours with most tour guides that have grown up in Sitka so they really know what they are talking about.

Our tour was later in the day so we first walked around the downtown area, which really doesn't take to long, after that we met up with our tour guide and the other folks we where with, it was a small van with about 8 of us in it.
We first drove around town with our guide gaving us some history of Sitka, we spotted a bald eagle so we pulled over to take some photos, then it was off to the Rain Forest and Totem Polls. We took a cool walk through the rain forest with our guide telling about the plants and trees, then it was on to the Totem Polls.
Then we took a drive out to the Fortress of the Bears (which was my favorite) if you love bears then you need to visit and see the great work they are doing for the ophan bears. Then it was off to the Raptor Center and see the beautiful bald eagles that they rehab, again great work these folks do for the birds.
It was great to spend the day in Sitka and learn about the people, the animals, the rain forest and so much more. This company does a great job, very orgainzed and knowledgable.
A lot of folks won't take tours that are not through the cruise line they are one because they have always been told that if they are late the ship won't wait for them, but please remember these local tour comapanies do this for a living and know all the ships port hours and when you need to be back, they will never let you be late. So next time try a local tour company, you may even save yourself some money :)
