My sister is very interested in Native American art. We learned the history and meaning of the totems. We were able to discuss them with Native Americans, which made it more interesting. Highly recommended.
The tour started with a video of the native people of Alaska but kind of fizzled out after that. We were to look at their artwork which consisted of about 5 pieces and then take a 50 yard nature walk before going to the ceremony...More

We spent about 1 1/2 hours here. It was interesting with various totem poles and wooden houses where the indiginous people lived , with individual totem poles outside their property to warn off strangers.
You could easily get around in less than an hour though.
We were happy to visit this place. Reason was that during the visit to this park, we came to know about the stories associated with the totem poles. Saw the sample of the house used by the Alaskan tribes. Their gift shop had lots of...More

Hi, we used Ketchikan Taxi cab tours who charge a flat hourly rate of ~$74.00 per hour. You can book this in advance, Kat and Dave were absolutely wonderful and very knowledgeable tour guides who make it easy to find by waiting across the street from the pier, "look for a sign with your name on it". In fact we could see them from our stateroom as we waited to disembark.
There were six of us, all adults and the Van they use was very comfortable.
Put the Totem parks first on your list and you should have no problems with a 9am or even 10am start to see the Totem parks. Most shopping is around town by the pier and you can easily walk to local Creek Street shops and still be back in time.
For me this was the way to go, and knowing I had the booking in advance was less stressful.
Enjoy your cruise!
