We had an amazing tour guide, Dan, who was able to adjust the tour to the needs and interests of our party. There were 7 of us in our group, aged 5 years to 68 years. Dan adjusted the stops to meet our needs in light of the rather heavy rain that was falling. He also gave us tips on how to enjoy Anchorage after we returned from our stay in Denali. The granddaughters were entertained and learned a lot from Dan, too. Overall, it was a wonderful experience and I highly recommend Alaska's Finest Tours and especially their expert tour guide, Dan!

Our tour guide Chris was very knowledgeable about the region, culture, wildlife and geography. Chris was very friendly and approachable. Easy and flexible with time. Allowed us to take pics at every stop. It was a very diversed group. Chris made it very comfortable allowing the group to become friendly with each other.

This was an amazing helicopter ride! I have been in some good helicopter tours in Hawaii before, but this one was even better than those! Our pilot was very skilled and gave us a very smooth ride, took us above and down close to the glacier in many parts, and knew the best 3 spots to touch down for us to explore and get amazing photos. Our pilot was also an excellent photographer himself and took some of the most amazing pictures! Definitely highly recommend!

Went on a land tour and cruise with Holland American Line. June 1st-June 10th for our 50th wedding anniversary.
We paid for an escorted land tour only to be given a letter from the company stating there would be no tour director. We were escorted off the ship away from customer service before learning this devastating news. There was no one to lead or help with decisions to make this trip hassle free or enjoyable. How can Holland American sell this type of trip and not deliver the service we paid for. Tried to contact them for two weeks and have received no reply. Never again will I allow them to be involved with my vacation. Compensation is DUE!

I hate to be negative but the precruise Denali tour is a grind. Up way to early, long bus drives, way to long train rides. Luggage out your door by seven in the morning, and run down hotels in Fairbanks and Anchorage. The train took eight hours. Service in all places was excellent, but the trip itself was simply not worth taking. The Resort in Denali was very good and sitting around the fire in the square was very enjoyable and if just go there you you will be happy.

The wilderness bus ride into the park is 5.5 hours long. One rode in and same rode out. Scenery is nice, but the pictures attached are as good as it gets.

If I could give 0 stars I definitely would!!!!! My husband and I were scheduled for a cruise/land tour in Alaska on Princess cruises in August 2022. All excursions, airlines, and activities booked and planned, personal work taken care of! Princess canceled half of the 14 day trip one week before our departure, saying that ALL cruise land tours had been canceled for the rest of the season . Only explanation given was lack of staffing. Thanks to an excellent travel agent we were able to book for September 10th on Royal Caribbean for basically the same trip experience. We get to Alaska and are shocked to discover that Princess is still cruising with the land tour!!!! What In the world!!! Such poor customer service and timing. I had looked so forward to cruising with Princess because of the good reviews, but what a disappointment.

Thank you Royal Caribbean for being dependable!

We saw a bald eagle and a moose! We saw the world's largest chocolate fountain! And gorgeous mountain views. We saw hundreds of seaplanes. We learned a lot about Alaska, too. We learned about that terrible earthquake in the 1960s, and we got to see a special place that collects glacial silt and has famous high tides that make waves (a Bore Tide). We got to sample reindeer sausage and smoked salmon. The tour guide was very informative and was happy to answer questions. Thank you so much!!!

Three of my family went on a Ruby Princess cruise from Vancouver to various ports in Alaska. The onboard experience was true value for money, plenty to do and eat. The ports of call were fascinating, except the glacier which we were not able to reach. Embarkation was lengthy but other than that, I would class this cruise as excellent.
