Tour of the city of Juneau and the Mendenhall Glacier.

February 16, 2023

This was an excellent tour, small group with a very engaging and knowledgeable driver. He showed us around Juneau with a few photo stops and we had plenty of free time to hike the glacier!

I'm so glad we did!

February 4, 2023

This trip really exceeded my expectations! We arrived in the afternoon of September 2022 and easily found the meeting point down the hall. We waited about 25 minutes before we all got on the bus. The marina was about 20 minutes away and our bus driver was informative and fun along the way. The boat was quite big and they said it was brand new and it looked like it too! It was very cozy and warm and there was plenty of room to spread out. We saw at least a dozen humpback whales, mostly tail/back divers! The guides were very knowledgeable and gave us a great tour. One of them had a folder with information about the whales we had seen and was able to tell us their names and migration patterns which was really cool. For the best experience, be sure to bring binoculars and dress warmly as it's quite chilly out on the water. On the way back we stopped on the main road near the river and snapped a photo with the Mendenhall Glacier in the distance which was an added bonus.

Excellent trip. We saw eagles and sea creatures and it wasn't as cold as I expected. The hot chocolate at the end was lovely.

Whale Watching near Juneau

1 January 2023

I originally booked a tour for a small group of 20 people (we had 11 in our group) but it got cancelled. This tour was supposed to hold up to 40 people, but we were the only ones! All were great! Our bus driver chatted as we drove, pointed out the highlights and stopped twice for photos - at Mendenhall Glacier and the Bronze Whale Fountain. The boat was wonderful - a very fast jet powered boat. The captain and naturalist gave us so much information! We saw dozens of white-tailed eagles fishing. And there were whales - two at a time. For over 45 minutes we watched the whales break, dive, roll and flirt with us. On the way back we saw a lot of killer whales! While I'm sure wildlife tours are unpredictable, we were fortunate to see so much.

Great adventure

December 9, 2022

We enjoyed our little trip to the Yukon and the dog camp. Grøden gave a brief overview of the races she participates in, we took a short walk with a small team of dogs and then saw the puppies waiting to go home. The Emerald Lake was the highlight for me - it was a beautiful mountain lake!

Knowledgeable and interesting

Mark has great food and a great experience in San Francisco. On his trip he visited some great restaurants and was able to impart knowledge about the owners, the cuisine and the cultures that influenced the menus. In addition, he showed us some of the murals in the Mission District and their history. I highly recommend this tour.
