It was a very small, intimate tour. We loved the upside down gardens. They were truly creative and beautiful even in the rain! We were very impressed with the Museum. The displays were exceptionally well done, thorough, attractive, and very interesting.
We enjoyed this tour very much. Very organized. It took us by many points of interest which we visited more extensively later.

How lucky were we! We were the only parties on the tour. Our Guide was lovely and very knowledgeable. Given the short time that we had in Juneau we gained a good over view of the city and its history. Highly recommended.

A perfect day for a city tour of Juneau. Sunny, great scenery, interesting city history, and a wonderful & knowledgeable tour guide named Tori. Highlight was the Glacier Gardens. Thanks to Tori for making this day special.
