  • I was so lucky to have come across these guys.. I thought I would miss out on a tour for coming out so early in the “spring” but fear not! Bob and Patrick when above and beyond my expectations. I got to see some “ok” worthy places and some pretty amazing scenery! Nature here is so incredible! Thanks guys, I’ll be back

  • John was great. Very informative. Took us to some beautiful viewing areas. Bus was very comfortable. Loved the conservation center

  • Bob was excellent. He provided great commentary. Great photography trip. Loved the final trivia and take home gifts.

  • Wonderful tour. We enjoyed ourselves. It was a nice drive to the Ring of Glaciers. We had a lot of photo opportunities with a very energetic and friendly guide named Bob. We saw wild eagles and squirrels and even a bear in the conservation center. There were other animals there too like wolves and wild musk oxen. We had a lot if fun. It was really nice and there were spectacular views of glaciers, mountains, rivers, lakes, trees, and wild life. We even passed the train on the railroad on the way back.

  • Excellent experience! Bob was a great tour guide. He has lots of information to share about the wild as well as the glaciers we saw. He also showed me some camera tricks to use that will help me to capture better memories. I really enjoyed this tour!

  • Great tour made even greater by our tour guide Bob. He was very knowledgeable about the area and places we stopped and offered great photography lessons too.

  • Our Tour guide Bob was outstanding. Not only he was very resourceful but very pleasant and entertaining. He even gave is mini photography lesson and threw in tour of Glacier which had not been part of tour package. I will definitely ask for him for our next tour

  • Our guide Bob was fantastic! Bob shared some photo techniques that really enhanced the experience. The wildlife reserve was great lots of animals and the icing on the cake was the boat ride out to the glacier. The spectacular view of Alaska just remind you what a great plant we have the privilege to live on. We need to respect it and take better care of it!

  • We had a great time on our excursion! It was easy, great pick-up at our hotel. Bob was great and we throughly enjoyed our trip! the glaciers are breathtaking!

  • When visiting Anchorage, a tour with Bob is a must. Bob is the most accommodating, knowledgeable, and upbeat guide ever!! Bob pulled over the van when he noticed a mother goat and baby goat running wild in the cliffs. Bob also kept his eyes open for bears in the cliffs. Bob is also extremely knowledgeable about the history and the botany of the area. Bob's photography tips were extremely helpful. Do yourself a favor and have a blast of a tour
