The tour was a total success because the tour guide was indeed knowledgeable in all aspects. Katie is such a smart person and the way she showed us around and her knowledge kept our attention all the time. Her enthusiasm, passion, and commitment with what she does made the difference. In this trip I had 4 other land tours starting at Vancouver and this tour was the one that most impacted me. She knew everything. I also have to thank her for the great, wonderful coffee recommendation. This souvenir was has been the most appreciated. Thank you Katie!!! Thanks SalmonBerry Tours!!! Thanks Viator!!! What a trio!!! ;)
The Mt. Alyeska part was very good, the tour guide was very informative, I learned a lot about the Turnagain Arm, the optional glacier cruise was not all that great, would not recommend that addition that is offered with this tour.
it was a wounderful one day tour that gave you several oppertunities to see mountains, glaciers and some wild life. We also had a chance to eat some local food for lunch.
We had a great time and the tour guide was very informative.
This tour proved to be outstanding. The best day we had on our cruise. Whales were easy to spot. We saw many hump back whales. Really amazing sights. That evening we did the flight over three glaciers. Weather almost cancelled this trip but it cleared in time to fly. Another amazing experience.
It was great we saw a couple pods feeding and at one time we were surrounded by whales
We would rate this tour as a 5. The boat was very comfortable and designed to hold just the right number of passengers for great viewing. The tour guides were very helpful and we saw many whales. This was a good way to also get a side trip to see the Mendenhall Glacier up close.
Awesome! I went July 12, 2013. We saw 5 humpback whales, about 6 killer whales, dulus porpoises, sea lions, sea otters, puffins, and some glaciers.
Doing what: Kenai Fjords National Park Cruise from Seward
A pleasure one day tour from Anchorage.
The hunting for bears was not good. The guide on the island just raced up and down some gravel roads for 2 hours plus. She also took a "friend" with her who was there to take her on photos on our dime. The friend got to set in the front passenger seat putting our tour guide in the rear seats of a nine passenger van which precluded her from doing any narration. We finally saw a bear beside the runway at the airport while we were flying out. The glaciers by air were really nice and the whale watching was great. Saw Orcas and Humpbacks.
The low rating for this tour is exclusively because of the bear watching tour. Immediately upon arrival, Hope Anderson informed our young tour guide that she could sit in back as Hope was bringing along a friend (Denise) who did not work for the tour company NOR had paid for the tour though Hope informed us that Denise would narrate. Hope and Denise had a great time talking about and viewing bear scat. Denise stopped and took lots of pictures. Denise did not narrate. The most enjoyable part of the tour was when our young tour guide (who was with us from pick up on Juneau to drop off) spoke from the back and shared a bit about the plants and berries on the island. It is a SHAME that this was allowed. We saw a bear as our flight was leaving the island on the side of the runway. We knew we might not see bear at all, which was fine, however, Hope was far too busy entertaining her friend and insulting our home state to give us a decent tour...We would discourage anyone from booking a tour to look for bears if there was a chance that Hope would be their driver/guide.
We had a wonderful time! We saw at least 10 episodes of bubble net feeding by the humpback whales. The crews were very informative and it was nice being in a small group (6 on boat and 4 on plane) vs a large group,everyone was able to see sites very well. I was particularly appreciative of the boat crew because I have a broken ankle and they wheeled me down to the dock and got me safely on the boat.
Also this excursion was so much more reasonable than others that offered similar trips. Thanks for the good time.
excellent boat trip, weather closed in on glacier so we rebooked for later in day, we didnt get to top due to weather but flight was fab
The rain isn't what got us. What got us was the fact that the cabin was NOT heated, as we were told, and there were10 of us crowded into a very small boat. We did not get lunch, as we were told; just snacks and beverages. It was very disappointing. Period. We did see whales, though, and Stellar sea lions and other critters. But we were drenched and very cold and miserable.
El tour fue buenisimo, de primera calidad todo, visitar ballenas fue lo mejor (aunque depende si hay o no ballenas), alcanzamos a ver algunas, el vuelo en avioneta tambien excelente, los guias nos trataron muy amablemente y sobre todo mucho mas barato que el costo que me dieron en el crucero que tome, y por parte de viator muy atentos todo el tiempo.
Unbelievable! My wife and I took a 7 day Inside Passage cruise and this was by far the best experience of our trip. Climbing down into a cave under the Mendenhall glacier was something unexpected and was the best part of the trek. The hike to and from the glacier is no joke so be prepared for a very challenging day. I have climbed many mountains in Colorado and this was as difficult as any of the climbs I have done.
