Really had a great time. Jeremy pointed out many things and we went to lookouts along the way. The Alaskan Wildlife Center was fantastic even in the pouring rain. The cruise part has to be cancelled due to high winds but the enormous moose on the highway more than made up for it. Jeremy was a great guide with lots of information and a great attitude which definitely made our group of strangers talk to each other. My only suggestion is if part of the tour has to cancelled, have a plan B. There is a lot to see around the Anchorage area.

This was SO AMAZING! Sights were unbelievable and wildlife center was great! Matthew went above and beyond to explain every glacier, mountain, activity and historical fact. Bears, coyotes, eagles, moose, muskox, we saw them all! Beluga point, Portage lake/mountain were the kind of sights you only see in magazines, spectacular. Highly recommendable tour!!!

This was a great tour! Beautiful scenery and very informative! Chris and Kel really take great care to make this tour one to remember. They are great tour guides!

Matt, our tour guide, was absolutely amazing! He made the tour so personal and exciting. Will definitely do this tour again when I go back!

We had a beautiful weather. We stopped in few view points. Jeremy was super nice and knowledgeable.
