OMG! What an amazing experience you get for your money! We traveled to Alaska on the Disney Wonder in early June and a friend of mine recommended this tour. We were skeptical but for the price we figured we would give it a go. Dave was not feeling great in the morning, so we were greeted by Jeanine who was wonderful. Right off the bat she told us that this was OUR tour, and so whatever we wanted to do/bypass would be fine with her. Because this was a privately owned tour, there was no set schedule. This meant that Jeanine could show us things that other tour companies don't stop for.
We stopped at one of the glacier falls and jokingly asked if we could drink the water coming down the waterfall. Jeanine whipped out a glass and told us to just clean it in the water. Well, we filled up the glass and had some of the cleanest, best tasting, pure, glacier water ever. Each stop was for as long or short as we wanted, and Jeanine was patient and knowledgeable.
We opted to take the train back from Fraser to town, which in the future I would skip and remain with the tour. When we got back to the train station, there was Dyea Dave waiting to take us for a tour around town before returning us to our ship. We spent a full day on this tour for a minimal price per person...and was a day filled with fun, jokes, laughter, and knowledge.
We still babble on to all our friends about this excellent tour and I would HIGHLY recommend it to anyone that is laid-back, likes to learn about the surroundings, and be able to experience a tour that is pretty much custom-made to what the group wants. My 12 year old son who is usually hard to please and hard to pull away from his video games, put his game back in his pocket for the entire tour, and was interested in everything that was going on. At the end of the tour he said "THAT WAS AWESOME!"
