First cruise, first time to Alaska & Canada, it was fabulous. So beautiful, staff was great & very accommodating. We was with a company that chartered the whole ship & made it even more fun. They were super organized & accommodating when going on excursions. Would definitely do it again.

My husband and I signed up for a cruise to view Portage Glazier and some wild life but due to high winds the cruise had to be canceled. We were offered an alternative and we chose the Wildlife Center and City Tour. Ben, our driver, drove us out the Turnagain Arm on Hwy.3 to the Wildlife Rescue Center. He pointed... More

I called the company 20 minutes before they closed to try to reserve for the next day, they were able to fit my dad and I with no problems.

First off, Ben did an amazing job showing us all over Anchorage. He showed us everything a $500 tour would show you but for only $100. We were able to get out of the van and take pictures with the waterfalls and even real life moose. You will not be disappointed with any tour that you take regardless of being... More

Our guide Ben is a Native Alaskan (Tlinget) and a wonderful source of information. He provided a different perspective on Anchorage and Alaskan history that was very interesting. Our visit to the Native Alaskan Medical Center to view Native art was very nice. Our tour included the Ulu factory, Wild Berry Products, Ship Creek, and a museum dedicated to the... More

If you are wanting to participate in a 4 hour intense and heated political debate then this is the tour for you. Highly recommended!!!! If you are wanting to know more about Alaska, then buy a guide book and rent a car and do it on your own. This Ben guy is intense.

We did this tour after doing many other amazing tours within Alaska and were so disappointed. First off, our tour guide Ben was rude, condescending and talked way too much politics on this drive. He will excuse this as just teaching us about the area, but realistically he was voicing a lot of political opinions not related to the native's... More

Thank you for your comments it is always good to hear what people like or dislike on the tour. Our tour strives to deliver the “Alaska Native cultural" aspects of Alaska Native history from an Alaska Native. The company website does make mention that the tour is Alaska Native owned and operated and makes mention in several areas that your... More
