Except the weather everything was so nice. The lady had so much to tell about Ketchikan and the clans - it was amazing.

The tour was great. Carol was an excellent and informative guide showing us all of the local spots on our way to Totem Bight. We learned a lot and our tour was a small group so we all got many chances to explore and enjoy.

We enjoyed Totem Bight very much! If you are aboard a cruise ship book this tour with them as it was more than 25 more through Trip Advisor. Lesson learned for us.

The Totem Bight State Park tour is great. We had time to walk around and really enjoy toe totems. I gave the tour 4 stars instead of 5 because our tour guide spent way too much time sharing personal information do we really need to know that she was drunk when she encountered a bear outside her home? And how many pictures of her sons holding a fish they didn't catch did we really need to see? Hopefully not all the tour guides are like this.

Loved it!! We had a wonderful tour guide who not only gave us historical information but was personally involved. I would recommend this tour to everyone.

Nice and comfortable short tour, not strenuous. Karen is so knowledgeable due to her being married into a native American family and she is so passionate, really enjoyed the tour and learning. Our highlights were the eagles flying through the forest just metres away from us- and the sound just fantastic. Pick up just off the ship- so easy
