The bus drivers and tour guides on our trip were very knowledgable and entertaining. We did the canoe portion of the tour first and Harriet Hunt Lake was absolutely stunning. The snack and very informative nature walk were an unexpected bonus. The jeep portion was fun, especially the off-road section, and the view from the top of the road was worth the drive. My only suggestion would be to make the off-road oration longer.

Loved this shore excursion. The tour guide was very prompt, professional and always guided us through the excursion. Got to drive the jeep and it was blast. Then when in the canoe, got to see the beautiful scenery Ketchikan has to offer and had the opportunity to enjoy the stories and facts of Alaska then had the chance to taste the chowder and salmon, which was awesome.

Awesome and well-organized experience! All the staff involved were professional. Enjoyed the views from jeep ride, spectacular canoe experience, and LOVED the information given during nature tour. The snack at the end an excellent bonus and our family would go again in a heartbeat!

Wonderful adventure! Perfect amount of canoeing, amazing jeep excursion. Our tour guide, Kristina, was especially wonderful, with great passion, thorough knowledge of the area, plants, animals, etc, and a natural gift for sharing her knowledge in a way that was totally engaging and informative, without a hint of patronism. Also amazing energy. She went above and beyond anyone's expectations. If this review is shared with her, please include my contact information - as a retired university professor, I'd be happy to write her a general personal recommendation.

This was so much fun!!!! It was great to see the gorgeous scenery and then to take the 20 person canoe trip was breathtaking. The picturesque landscape was breathtaking. We thoroughly enjoyed every minute of this excursion. Great staff!!!

Lot of FUN!! Great off roading and beautiful views. The canoeing was very scenic and placid!! Only complaint was that it was unseasonably warm the day we went and the a/c was not working...just blowing lost of dust and hot air but was not a deal breaker for us...we are from Miami:)

It was a wonderful tour - we canoed in a beautiful mountain lake and off-roaded on old logging roads. The guides were kind, knowledgeable and very organized, The scenery was breathtaking and I would rate the whole experience as top notch! My two kids (12 and 15) loved it and thought it was "way cool" and we would highly recommend both the company and the tour to anyone!

We booked on line before we left New Zealand. There were no hassles to hook up with our tour operator and destination. Even the bus trip to the tour depot was interesting. Warm welcome;safety procedures and away we went om a magical tour. Lots of communication between lead and backup jeep and we could communicate on our several stops scenery we had seen and would like to stop and view and take photos. The guides were down to earth, knowledgeable, fun and family orientated in their own personal lives."That is my beautiful wife just passing us." My husband and I are in the 55yr to 65yr age group and had no trouble with the 4 wheel drive mountain ascent and descent and paddling the 20 person canoe to a spectacular island, refreshment area and tropical rain forest. This tour has given us an impetus to revisit this same experience in our home country- New Zealand.

This was better than it sounds, better than I could describe and better than I expected! Matt P. was our guide he explained everything clearly, made the radio communications fun and clear as we were on the logging roads in the jeeps. I had a great time paddling our canoe across the beautiful lake followed by the warm cocoa, chowder, rolls with jam and andes mints :) then the nature walk.. it was short but to be IN those trees rather than driving past or seeing them from a distance. It was beauty beyond words. Thank you for making my Ketchikan excursion a great one!

The trip was a lot of fun. It was great driving the trails ourselves and the trip to the picnic at the lake was a great way to finish the day.

3 star rating: Worth doing

The jeep part driving on the mountain terrain was fun but the scene up on the mountain and the canoe was ok

Jeep tour was a super bumpy ride on a trail so dense and narrow you couldn't see a thing.
Canoe portion was so short it was comical. The chowder was great and the guide was very good on the trail hike.
