We had a pleasent tour with Mike Mills, a very nice person. Unluckily we didn't get to see bears but we saw an extensive wilderness area and learnt a lot about plants. We got to see some deer.
I enjoyed that there was only two families in the excursion and that the guide was able to answer all of our questions and give us individual attention.
