Scott started our tour with a smile. The Coach was clean and comfortable. There were 10 family members. We listened and learned and Scott also encouraged questions as well. We saw a lot of beautiful scenery and learned about the environment. The Animal Conservation Center was impressive. We really saw a lot of different animals.

I was very disappointed in the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center. It was very run-down ... dilapidated cages ... roads in poor condition ... animals cooped up, etc. You can tour down Seward Parkway all by yourself and see everything the guide showed. Save your money - poor choice on my part.

This tour is great to see some of these animals like the moose, bears, Fox etc. on the way to the conservation centre along Turnagain Arm, its a great site to spot whales near the shore during the high tides. Our guide was very knowledgeable and offered a lot of info on the whole journey.

Got to see the wild life sanctuary it was nice, it drizzle most of the time and the clouds are grey in Alaska, so I purchased a rain coat that helps towards the wild life.
