I loved the wildlife tour. The driver was knowledgeable and friendly. The scenery was magnificent, and seeing the animals up close was a highlight of my trip to Alaska. I would definitely recommend Salmon Berry Tours. When there was a ticketing mix-up, I called their toll free number, and the operator was able to correct the problem.
excellent. we found all our expectancies. Anchorage a pretty city, clean, orgnizated and a very good attention for the visitors. fecitations. invited to return
Mary is a friendly, very knowledgeable and accommodating host. We enjoyed the drive and the wildlife tour.
Really enjoyed this tour, scenery was beautiful and was great to see the animals, weather wasnt good alas, but our guide was very informative and interesting.
The drive is amazing! Great scenery along the way. The Wildlife Reserve is ok, not really worth the 99. This really isn't a tour and the reserve is not very big. You can see the whole thing in an hour or less depending on how fast you want to get through it. The bears were out and about when we went which was very cool and I finally saw a moose there. Admission to the reserve is only 12.50 so you are really paying for the van to get you there and back. If you can, I would suggest renting a car, seeing the reserve, and then do some hiking lots of great trails nearby. The guide was great, very friendly and provided some interesting commentary along the ride.
My husband and I were in Alaska for 9 days and traveled by rail from Anchorage to Fairbanks. Your “Wilderness Tour” was our last activity prior to flying back to our home state. Unfortunately both my husband and I were extremely disappointed. All of your information and brochures that we had been given or sent featured a picture of a wolf in its natural habitat. Since we had not seen any wolves we were certainly looking forward to that but not only were there no wolves, there was no mention or reference to them on the premises. Although there were some photographs and signage at the areas where the animals were penned, there was no one to talk about them or to answer questions. Your driver, other that an occasional comment or remarks, spent the majority of the drive, coming and going, interacting and conversing with the couple sitting directly behind her rather than involving or sharing information with others on the bus. Upon arrival, she simply dropped us off at the gift shop and told us when to return for the drive back. I can’t speak for others, but we did not see her during our “do it yourself tour”.
We were fortunate enough to have other tours and excursions that were much more enjoyable and informative, but had to specifically been looking forward to this one to be a final memory of our wonderful time in Alaska.
Thank you for giving me the opportunity to express my thoughts. Bev Bley
