We took this tour in Sitka to experience what this cruise stop had to offer. We had a very informative driver, Deanna who was great at explaining about her city and what we were seeing. We enjoyed watching the bears play with each other and learning about the Raptor Center. The totem poles and the park were amazing. We saw a bald eagle taking a bath in the creek. So cool.

This was the best bang for your buck tour getting to see all the highlights of Sitka. We had a great knowledgeable guide that never made anything feel too rushed despite the packed schedule, and even would have taken us back to the ship if we ran out of time. The van was nice and warm and they even had a small step for my mother to easily get in and out. The highlight for us was the fortress of the bears where I'm glad we got to spend a very good amount of time to watch them. This tour and the kind people we interacted with have made us contemplate another trip back to Sitka. This was a great tour at a cheaper price than the cruise line while supporting local. 10/10

Very convenient way to explore Sitka if you dont have to much time , like me. This tour will take you to some key point in the city in a 12 person van and the driver is your guide. Very nice and comfortable . If you dont have to much time in here this the way to go in my opinion

The van was clean. The driver was friendly. His presentations were a good mix of information and chatter. He led us to believe that he owned the tour company. He told us more of his personal life fishing stories and political opinions than I cared to hear.

Thank you so much for your review. I'm really sorry the statement I made in the last two minutes of your tour, struck a sour cord with you. That definitely was not my intention! Though that information was not part of my normal tour I was trying to fill in the extra half our I gave you with more facts about Sitka. I will definitely be more selective on the facts I share in the future. I pray the rest of your cruise went great and we hope to see you again soon in Alaska. Bruce Conine Owner

A wonderful half-day tour of the Fortress of the Bears. A unique opportunity to see orphaned bears being taken care of. Great opportunity to get fabulous photos and learn about the process of their care. Ditto the Raptor Center. Very entertaining and with the ability to see the majestic American Eagles up close. Also learned about the conservation efforts. I felt Totems museum did not compare but did point out history of the indigenous peoples. Shorter than the other two stops which was perfect. Highly recommend!

The Fortress of the Bears was very impressive. These animals are beautiful and very entertaining just being bears, playing in the water and competing for food. Wish we could have had more time than the tour allowed.
