My tour leader, Nathan, did an excellent job. He is VERY articulate, knowledgable, and well spoken. Knew so much about the area and gave us a nice, well-rounded glimpse of Juneau....from historic, to places of natural beauty and historical/cultural significance. Could not have been a better tour. You could tell he loves doing what he does and sharing his passion with his "guests".

Had a great guide, Gram. Visited some sights we had not seen before. The Glacier Gardens are something not to be missed!
