  • Fun and educational tour thanks to our tour guide, Josh. Rainy but we still were able to enjoy the sites plus saw a beautiful waterfall as an extra.

  • Josh created a fantastic experience for myself and my daughter on this 7/15/21 tour. I appreciated his intro/heads up text confirming pick up time and location with details re: parking,…this was a great touch!

    He was personally inviting and engaging with everyone in the group, including taking the time to learn our name. He not only shared his knowledge of the area, but also some awesome pictures that he took throughout the adventure, and great Alaskan historical information with us….
    I actually felt like I was on a private tour!
    I highly recommend him😀
