More than the waste of money, this tour was a waste of time. So frustrating considering how genuine they seemed when selling the package. As soon as we got to the first stop, the "exclusive Eagle Point" which was just some waterfront with no eagles...More

Sourdough has a variety of tours and is a great choice as you look ahead to next season. They have knowledgeable, local guides. As a life long resident, I was very surprised to learn a few things!

WORST TOUR EVER! If I could give lower than a 1 star I would. Our tour driver explained a lot about salmon fishing along with his political biases. How his native heritage was compromised and has for the last 50 years tried to retrieve that...More

This tour was the worst we took in all of Alaska. Our tour guide couldn't be understood and he read parts of the tour information while driving. He wasn;t the least bit friendly and he was unnecessarily a little political. We stopped at their headquarters...More
