“The perfect way to tour around!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2013

A quick ferry ride from the airport brought us to Ketchikan, where Dave whisked us off in the van. We only had a few hours and wanted to avoid the tourist traps. We saw an amazing amount of local historical sites, the "must see" spots in town and more. True to our request, we were treated to fabulous off-the-beaten-path locations, with a running commentary that only an experienced guide could provide. We asked hundreds of questions and got answers to all. Just great viewings of animals, plants, and scenery, with "blow-by-blow" descriptions and tidbits of information. The Totem Park was impressive, as were the several other stops. After this very good experience, we will certainly look for a similar tour in every new town we visit to get an overview of the place -- time and money very well spent!

“Awesome tour!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2013 via mobile

Kat picked us bright n early at 6.45am when the Golden Princess arrived at Ketchikan. Kat was patient and stopped the taxi whenever we saw any wildlife...During the tour, we saw eagles, salmon fishes, a small bear cub which was really awesome! We visited the Totem pole park which was cool and quiet. The tour was easy and relaxed. (You can stopped by for local coffee if you want to.) Thanks to Kat for the great job. This tour is highly recommended.

We have a 20 month old toddler, so finally a tour that suited all of us can be challenging (we were on board the Grand Princess cruise ship). We did not want to be on a large charter bus with a ton of other people with a toddler that wanted to not sit still, and we also did not want to bother the other patrons on a bus. So, came here and read about this company and it sounded perfect. For the price of 3 hours, we saw so much and paid the same or less than what we would have paid through the ship for a bus tour.

Kat was our driver and she met us as planned, with a car seat ready for our daughter. Having her in a car seat was wonderful because I did not have to worry about her becoming squirmy! The taxi cab has a headphone system, so if you were in the back of the mini van, you could still hear what she was saying. Kat took us to see the totems, on to a park that had incredible views (that tour busses weren't allowed to go, and she had awesome stories to share. Our last stop was to look for bears (none that day), but we did get to see a family of eagles (mom, dad and two juveniles), plus a few other eagles. Even caught sight of an eagle grabbing dinner from the creek. We never felt rushed with Kat, and she took great family photos for us. She would also give us our privacy as needed.

Awesome tour for families and everyone!

Kat was amazing, very knowledgeable and entertaining. She showed us everything you wanted to learn, see and answered all our questions and took us to areas where larger tour buses could not go. We were on a cruise and when we left port, was revisited some of the areas and were excited that we knew everything regarding what she showed us and were able to tell our shipmates. It was their loss that they were not able to join us on this lovely and great tour. Hope you got your momento Kat.

“Excellent Taxitour!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2013

We booked this tour online. Dave and Kat were very prompt in responding to questions and emails. Dave met us when we arrived from a cruise at the dock (actually he was early and while I was trying to reach him by phone - he was waving a sign with my name on it!). Many people we talked to on the cruise didn't see any bears but Dave brought us to a spot where we saw a bear strolling thru the woods onto the river grabbing salmon and having a feast! We also saw bald eagles and even spotted a nest with baby eagles with Dave's help! Strolled thru the rain forest, went to see the totem poles, and drove thru town. He was very knowledgeable and provided a lot of interesting info about Ketchikan. Highly recommend this tour!
