Great tour and experience.
Very exciting!!!! Good trip!!!
The Wildlife park was very important, the small hike up to a viewing area, and especially the fjord cruise!! All was outstanding including the glacier margarita, for me and will go again.
The tour was fun, but the description about seeing beluga whales made me think we’d be in an ocean where that was a possibility, but we were only in a fresh water lake with no life at all. The tour guide was great!
Tim was awesome and very accommodating to meet the needs of my 81 year old father and 6 year old daughter!
The company was able to accommodate my travel plans! The driver/guide, Mike, was very informative and helpful. Really enjoyed the tour to Portage Glacier and the Conservation center was interesting! I heard my name being called, and it was Mike directing me to a clear spot to see the bear feeding! Will book with them again on my next trip!
Very well organized and had a fantastic time. Would highly recommend this to anyone.

Ira was a good tour guide with lots of knowledge, answered all questions asked in a friendly happy manor . The glazier was amazing to to see . We got lucky with the weather it was a sunny warm day. The wild life centre was a bit disappointing but we still got to see bears and other native animals.
The views during this tour are breathtaking! Mike was our tour guide. He is very knowledgeable and accommodating, and provided us with an amazing experience. Thanks Mike!
The trip was fabulous. MICHAEL was an excellent tour guide. He was knowledge and pointed out several sights for us to see. The views were amazing. I would recommend this to any visitor who comes to Alaska and wants to see a taste in a short time.
Missing a snack and bottle of water. Everything else was great
From The moment we got picked up by ben, we felt very welcomed. The crew members in the boat where exceptional!!!!!! Thank u for the great experience. We will be back
My son and I loved this tour! It was amazing. Great guide and very informative. The drive to Portage and back was gorgeous. We loved Portage Lake and Glacier. So beautiful. Cannot wait to do it again
Ben was a good tour guide. I guess the reason for not being highly satisfied was the other guests on the tour. We were moved from Thursday to Friday in order to have a bigger group... I understand this, but it was a full bus and quite crowded. Additionally, another group that got on the bus someone was wearing such a powerful perfume or cologne that it made the whole bus experience very unpleasant. They also sat behind us and we were unable to hear anything that Ben was saying because they yammered on in another language with absolute disregard for any of us that may be interested in actually listening to the guide, and with disrespect to the guide himself. I work in the service industry and understand difficult guests and I suppose it's the risk you take when signing up for a tour, it was just disappointing because there was the potential there to have a great guide and learn a lot, but because of the desire to maximize profit and completely fill the bus that was lost. Thanks for listening.
This was such an amazing experience! Our guide was phenomenal (Ben)! He made the experience ten times better and he is very knowledgeable of his surroundings!
Thank you Ben for a great day.

Initially had hick ups in the pick up coordination as the phone calls were not answered. When they tried to reach us our mobile was out of network too. But apart from this the entire coordination, plan and execution was good. The guide didn't rush through the portions and explained things well
Ben showed us parts of Alaska we wouldn't have had a clue to see on our own!! Starting with a very berry chocolate shop and ending with the wildlife conservation center with glaciers and incredible scenery inbetween. We had a blast!

Great time, highly suggested for an afternoon adventure!
Ben did a great job detailing things we were seeing on the tour. Even though it was a rainy day, he still made sure we saw all we could see. He truly wants people to see Alaska! I would recommend this tour!
It was fine. The price was a bit high. We chose it because it would pick us up at motel.
The actually destinations were great - the Animal Conservation Center and Portage Glacier. I read previous reviews that mentioned getting a box lunch; we didn't even get water or a snack so that was disappointing. The side stops made were too short; I didn't have time to shop much less go to the bathroom - I would cut down to one stop and make it longer.

Ben went out of his way to make sure we experienced the Bore Tide since it was happening as we drove by. The tour was a good value.
I wish we would have had more time at the conservation center and that Ben would have provided more information about the area. The ride back to Anchorage at the end was painfully quiet in the van.
Very informative and friendly guide. The glacier tour was great and very friendly too. Would highly recommend.
Perfect combination of wildlife, scenery, and Glaciers. Ben was an awesome guide. Loved the tour!
I loved this tour. Ben was an awesome tour guide. He was very kind, informative and looked after all of us the entire day. I appreciated the efficiency, the customer service, and of course the scenery. The Animal reserve and glacier tour were amazing. Thanks again for such a fun adventure. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Anchorage.
We had an amazing time and learned so much! Thank you. Highly recommend this tour for anyone.
Great tour. Highly recommended!
