Great experience. but the driver for the dog sled doesn't seem very enthusiastic. Didn't talk or say much, took our picture quickly, the pictures didn't turn out good because we were not even ready. Other than that, the puppies and all the dogs as well as the lecture about dog sledding is great. Gold panning too short wish there is also some kind of educational talk as well.

Favorite Excursion

We had such a fun time on this excursion. I didn't book through the cruise, but everyone on the bus was from our ship. I didn't realize that half the tour would be driving. It was so beautiful, and we made a lot of photo stops. Our driver, Jack, was very knowledgeable and entertaining. The puppies were so cute and the sled and gold panning was a lot of fun. I would definitely do this again.
