My husband and I had a wonderful tour with Jolene. It was fun to talk to a local and to learn all about plants and animals in the Copper River area. We highly recommend this tour!

This was one of the best tour we took! Joelle taught us everything we needed to know about Alaska. She was the very best. I learned more from her than we learned from our so called tour guide on our trip up!

We knew that we would see a lot of glaciers in Alaska and couldn’t afford scenic flights although it would have nice, so learning a little more about the local nature sounded interesting. We got a whole lot more than we expected thanks to Jolene,...More
