What people are saying about Seward

This is a self guided trip which was great. You can either walk or drive which we did both. It rained for us which prob caused most of the animals to look for shelter but not the bears!! They were showing off for all the cameras to see! Got to see so many animals/birds in as close to their natural habitats as possible. tyyyyy

Amazing workers! Appreciated the habitats being large for the animals to roam. A little pricey for what it was but, it goes to a good cause.
