FANTASTIC Take this tour. The best tour.
Brian was our tour guide and he was amazing! He was very knowledgeable and a great tour guide! The views on this tour are unlike anything we had ever seen! The price was fantastic and the time flew by. I would highly recommend this tour! Note: Don't book another tour or excursion after this one. It screws up the possible time to Linger and explore for the other passengers please.
One of the reasons I booked this tour was the fact it said Small tour buses that hold up to 22 people. That is not what we experienced. There were 35 people on our tour. That was disappointing. I also booked the tour because one of the stops listed was the welcome to Alaska sign. Because people on the bus with us had to be back to their ship sooner and it was crowded, we did not stop. The bus driver did slow way down so I could at least get a picture of the sign. Other than that, the tour itself was good and our guide was knowledgeable.
