A good tour, access to experiences, views, and information probably not available other ways, tour guides were safe, very informative and many first hand experiences which added a great deal to the tour and information, the cookout was great, enjoyed the up close and personal access to the flora and fauna.
This is a great tour!! Amy was great and her knowledge of all the beautiful trees, plants and animals, was outstanding! This is an amazing tour and alot of fun! Oh I almost forgot, the guys even cooked us a great lunch too! To have such a great tour in such a breathtaking spot, really made this a trip of a lifetime and we will never forget it!!
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.
Great time! Beautiful scenery! The guides were informative and fun. Highly recommend them.
The excursion was fabulous, especially the off-road jeep part. The tour guides were extremely knowledgeable, helpful and accommodating. Overall, a wonderful excursion. No complaints or negatives whatsoever.
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.
It was great! The guides were great......very friendly and accommodating! A wonderful experience! Couldn't have asked for anything better.
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!
Loved the out doors and the people were really friendly. It was different then I expected.
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.
Live the bantering between guides Kevin and Jansen, they make the trip fun! Canoe portion was OK nothing exciting. Self drive jeep drive up a rocky bumpy Tongas mountain was awesome!
The tour itself was great - really fun time doing both the canoe trip delicious clam chowder and salmon snacks, and the jeep off-road tour. People were very friendly, but just two comments that made us give a lower rating - first, our Jeep guide Daron would not stop talking about the few types of trees that we saw - should have just given us a brief story, and let us admire the scenery in peace for the rest of the time. Second, the scheduled time for the trip just barely fits in to the allotted time we had from the cruise ship. We ended up making it back in time, but were actually later than the scheduled departure time. They guaranteed they would transport us to the next stop if needed, but that's not good enough. We would have been furious if we did not make it back in time. My wife and I both felt our blood pressure increase with each passing late minute - they need to make the trip just 15-30 minutes shorter or depart 30 minutes earlier and eliminate any avoidable stress.
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.
