The Best of Raptors, Bears and Totem Poles
StephenRosen
, Aug 2022
Our guide, Chris, was very knowledgeable. He was very familiar with each of the venues that we saw, and in each location that we visited, he was able to provide value added information to supplement what the employees of the venue provided to us. Chris is a member of the Tlingit Tribe and he told us about making a totem pole for a person he met a few years back who lives in the Lower 48. Chris was a fascinating person.

We ran late on our start time due to the crowds in the port. The tour waited for us and we were able to complete it as planned. We got to see a lot including Fortress of the Bear, Raptor center, Totem Park and Salmon swimming up stream. Melissa is a knowledgeable guide and she even made an unscheduled stop to see some baby eagles. I like that we got to see 3 places on a short tour. Great tour and tour company!

Great Tour for First Time Visitors to Sitka
John_C

If you only have a few hours to explore the awesomeness that is Sitka, this tour provides a great introduction to the wildlife, natural beauty and history of the Sitka area. The tour operator has excellent communication, reaching out to us the day before so we would avoid the long lines of other visitors from the cruise ships. The vans are comfortable, and the guides are friendly and knowledgeable. Our guide Chris, a life long resident of Sitka, was fantastic, providing us with lots of stops for pictures and telling us some personal stories of growing up in Sitka, the customs of the native people and the rich history of Sitka and Alaska. Highly Recommend

Bret our tour guide was excellent. Bear, Eagle and totem pole tours were good! First stop (for scenic viewing) was a waste of time but Bret made up for it by stopping on a truly scenic spot on the way back from the Bears.

We enjoyed the birds, but thought the bears were better than we expected. We really appreciated being taken back to the ship - I have some mobility difficulties. Melissa was our guide, she was wonderful.

Excellent tour guide (so sorry forgot his name)...extremely knowledgeable...great stories and insights to Sitka. Excellent mix of sights...bears, raptors, and totem poles...and still left enough time to do some souvenir shopping...even had a reindeer hot dog! The only downside was the weather...very rainy...but it's Alaska. Rhonda and her team do a terrific job...organized...great communication...even gave us info our cruise company didn't inform us of until that morning. Definitely recommend this company and tour.

The tour guide was great. I wasn’t expecting all the stops we made and thought we did NOT get the full experience we should have at the Raptor center. Friends of mine on a similar tour got to see an Eagle demonstration- we did not.

Totems were a dud
Bruce_G
, Aug 2022
Fortunately we had a nice walk through the rain forest, and I saw 2 bald eagles in a tree by the Fortress of the Bears. The Fortress of the Bears was mediocre. However mentioning totems in the title is severely misleading. Nothing, but nothing was said about the totems. Total waste.
