Juneau is the capital city of Alaska and the only capital in the United States that does not have roads connecting it to the rest of the state or the mainland, thanks to its rugged terrain.

From there you will make a stop at the Macaulay Hatchery, commonly referred to as DIPAC by the locals. Learn about the salmon industry, observe various marine life and watch the salmon run up the ladder (depending on the time of the year).

Conclude your tour with a stop at the 50-acre Glacier Gardens Rainforest Adventure in the Tongass National Forest. Walk through this award winning botanical garden and admire the flower towers as your guide fills you in on this region's varied ecosystem.

Your tour will end near "Deckhand Dave's", the latest go-to food option in Juneau. Each guest will have a voucher for a free dish of his signature rock-fish tacos. This new venue only serves locally caught fish in an fantastic creative way. This family friendly tour is a perfect introduction to Alaska, especially for those who are short on time.

It was a great tour, there was time to spend at the museum, fish hatchery and aquarium, see rebounded ground from the Mendenhall Glacier, and visit the Glacier Gardens. Had a great driver who explained what we were seeing and where we were going.

Small group. 4 Liked the museum, the gardens, and the fishery. Guide gave a good explanation of sights. Interesting to learn about the extreme change in tides. Had a nice salmon dinner at one of the restaurants. Surprised to learn how small the capital was.

The tour begins as you travel through city streets and learn about the history of Juneau. You will see various landmarks. The views are amazing. The Alaska State Museum visit was one of my best experiences in a museum. The museum has Science on a Sphere®, or “SOS.” This is a display system that uses computers, video projectors, and a six foot diameter sphere to create an animated globe. The museum staff stopped to demo SOS for us. We could see when Hurricane Florence started and watch it's progress across the water and over the states. As the morning moved on, we visited Macaulay Hatchery. Our guide was amazing. We loved her knowledge of the hatchery as we walked through. Our stop at the 50-acre Glacier Gardens Rainforest Adventure was fun and awe-inspiring. At the end of your tour, you might get a coupon for "Deckhand Dave's". Eat there whether or not you have a coupon. They have fresh, locally caught food and a super beer selection.

Great Tour. Directors went out of their way to accommodate as our itinerary changed due to high winds. They made adjustments so we could do the tour.
