Excellent, informative, got to tour the Alaska State Museum, see the salmon hatchery, see the sights around Juneau, very elderly friendly, small bus, very clean, tour guide and driver were both excellent and caring toward their passengers. Low key tour, far from the crowds in Juneau, highly recommend.
I really liked this tour. I was looking for a tour that would go with my family's age group (2 to 80!) and this was perfection! Our tour guide was super flexible and very knowledgeable about the area. He told us fun facts during the drive. We went to the Museum, the Hatchery, the Rainforest was really, quite the sight. Our tour guide was super knowledgeable and guided us through both the Hatchery and Rainforest. We got some rockfish tacos to go and it was a very good portion - also super tasty! There is a regular and a spicy version. Spicy IS SPICY!

This tour was enjoyable and took us to the sights that it said it would. A good choice for anyone with mobility issues.

This tour lasted half an hour to 45 minutes longer than the time we were given. Had to call a taxi to pick up my granddaughter so she could get to the start of her second tour. The tour was interesting but it went to places I don't remember reading that it would go to, like to the fish hatchery. And it didn't go to Mendenhall Glacier which I had thought I'd read it would do. It all worked out ok, but was worrisome for awhile.

Cameron was an excellent tour guide! Not only did we see most of Juneau, we had plenty of time to visit the Alaska Museum, view (from a distance) Mendenhall Glacier, and walk the rainforest area, Glacier Garden. We toured the Macaulay Salmon Hatchery before Cameron left us downtown with coupons for lunch at Deckhand Dave’s Fish Tacos. We ate the best rockfish tacos ever before strolling the streets of downtown Juneau. We highly recommended this tour!
