Unalaska/Dutch Harbor is a small town, and if you have a map and rental car you can pretty much see all the "high points" of the town in one day. Not wanting to take any chances, we had planned to stay a second day and had reserved the four-hour tour with Extra Mile Tours. As far as I know there are only two tour companies on the island; the other is run by Bobbi's sister-in-law. It's a small place.
We ran into Bobbi and her tour three or four times on our first day, and knew that we had covered much of her posted itinerary. Thus it came as a considerable and delightful surprise when she started our tour the next day with a brand-new place, not on her posted itinerary. That is, her whole tour was built around us, knowing we had already seen all the "high points." Everywhere we went, she pointed out the wildlife (lots of Eagles!), flowers and plants and what they were used for in the native culture (salmonberries, Yum!) and island history (the island is riddled with World War II bunkers, etc.). She stopped to chat with locals here and there, and at one point asked us to wave to her brother passing by on his boat. It was like visiting family and having them show you around. At day's end we could have picked up a map of the island and colored in every road – we had seen it all!
I'm sure both tour companies are excellent, and regardless of how much time you have in Dutch Harbor/Unalaska (your guide will explain that) you should definitely include one of them in your plans.
