Best Tour of Our Trip!

 “Traveling with a group of friends, our interest was in getting off the beaten trail of ‘cruise ship tours’ so one industrious lady in our group did some research and found Sitka Wildlife Tours – right up our collective alley. She spoke with the owner/operators of the tour and was impressed with their interest in our group and we went for it…. NOT disappointed! This was THE BEST tour of our trip. Rhonda suggested an afternoon tour with Marie – who was EXCEPTIONAL. We learned things about the community, bears and wildlife, the forest flora & fauna and life in Sitka that we wouldn’t have learned in a city tour. Her enthusiasm was contagious – we all want to live in Sitka! The community, as we found in most of our stops in Alaska, was so clean and cared for – just a lovely place to visit. 

The tour owners met us at the disembarkation pier, told us where to meet later in the day & were waiting for us when our tour time came around. They knew we had some special requirements and met those with gracious aplomb. PERFECT! I wholeheartedly recommend this tour!”  Laura B.  Santa Ynez Valley, California (via Trip Advisor)
