Thank you for your review Kathi. It was our pleasure to have you aboard. Our team prides itself on making our guests feel comfortable before the tour, during the tour and long after returning from the tour. Wrangell is a friendly small town, off the beaten track yet one of the oldest communities with a rich history of slow tourism. Please come spend more time in our slice of heaven. John, Sylvia and the Alaska Vistas Team

The boat trip to Anan was most comfortable and the stop at Wrangell provided an 'extra' tour for us. My grandsons found the Sunday morning in the town most interesting - 'empty!' Hike into the Bear observatory was a long one for me, with many steps--not too many railings to

Thanks for your review. What a great opportunity for you to spend time with your grandsons in such a wonderful place. That they helped you on the trail shows that they have great manners. What a great day for bear viewing. In nature, there aren't many winners and losers, only a cycle that balances the hunter and the prey. We hope you had a great visit. So glad you chose to spend some time with us. Sylvia, John and the Alaska Vistas Team
