The tour guide took us to the totem park and told some of the stories behind the totems and legends. There were totems being carved and a nice gift shop at the park. History and local information was mixed in as well as commentary on living in a small Alaskan town. The rainforest walk was also interesting. The tour guide covered the flora and fauna. Plus it was a chance to stretch outpr legs. The small snack (salmon dip with crackers) was a pleasant surprise at the end of the walk.

Were we surprised when we were the only couple on the tour ! Since we were the only couple on the tour there was time to stop along the way to the tour to stop and take pictures of eagles and other local wild life. We really got to know the stories of the totems and had time to ask questions along with taking and having pictures taken by our tour guide with us of the totem poles. The rain forest walk was also outstanding and educational. Our tour guides were excellent. Wolf tours is an excursion you don't want to miss.
