Although we do much longer and more strenuous hikes on our own, this was a delightful day hike in a beautiful rain forest. The guide was informative and personable and we learned a lot about the ecology which we would not have learned if we did the hike ourselves. Good added value to the experience. We had enough time after the hike to explore Ketchikan.

Our tour guide was a resident of Alaska with a lot of insight on the Rainforest. The weather was gorgeous and the hike welcomed. Unfortunately we did not observe any wildlife.
We were so grateful to have taken this excursion through the Tongass National Rainforest. Our guide was as nice and thoughtful as could be. We (4) were each given a bottle of water and a snack. We took a 2 hour stroll through this wooded area with waterfalls, and many different plants that our guide had a lot of knowledge about. We were so pleased to come across 2 eagles in their habitat, and it was stunning just watching. It was a place far removed from our world and so quiet....totally enjoyed

Even though it rained the entire time of our hike the tour was great. I enjoyed the Tour Guide and her narration. I also liked we were a small group in a van. Glad I did not change my mind due to the weather.

Carol was an absolutely wonderful hiking guide. She lives in Ketchikan so had deep knowledge of the area. She knew her flora and fauna. I would highly recommend this tour.
