“Awesome people, great tour & managed to spot a bear :)”
Reviewed June 27, 2013

We had a really good time on our bear viewing tour with Huna Outfitters. Tesh, our guide, was very friendly, told us a lot about the area and the nature, explained plants and tried hard to make the bear search as comfortable as possible. Although we were told that chances of spotting a bear were quite small due to the hot weather, we managed to find one - it was sitting just right next to the van :) We also watched an eagle landing on his nest and saw deer crossing the road.
Unfortunately one girl on the bus needed to get back to the cruiseship early, otherwise Tesh would have prolonged the tour even though we had already seen a bear and time was actually over.
Chelsea and the team were super friendly and the Root Beer Floats, coffee and breakfast croissants at their place taste awesome!
Thanks for a great day and a special expierence :)

“Total Rip Off!!!!!”
Reviewed June 25, 2013 via mobile

Totally disappointed and waste of $800 dollars for six people!! This was recommended as an almost guaranteed bear sighting tour. After driving around the mountain for over 2 hours in relative silence, one of the passengers spotted a brown bear. Our driver, Tess, zoomed by and the bear was startled. No further attempt was made to see another bear. Tess felt her mission was accomplished and quickly returned to town and that was the end of the tour. Tess only addressed the passengers in the front seats and we could not hear anything in the back. It could have been so much better had our driver used a microphone to shared a little history of the area, information about the bears and their habitat and allowed us to get off the van, even if just to stretch our legs. We called Chelsea, the owner, twice while in town and she NEVER returned our call. Save your money and do not use this company until their drivers are trained to give tours!!!
