The walk through a section of the rain forest was very enjoyable and picturesque with waterfalls. Natalie our guide was very informative and shared lots of stories of life in Alaska. The tour of the totem pole park was very interesting with many more stories. We had plenty of time following the excursion to walk around and explore Ketchican.

Guide Natalie made this excursion delightful. Her narration of the Totem Park was superb. The hike she led was one of the best I have enjoyed in recent experience.

I ended up loving this more than what I thought I'd booked. It was a small intimate group in a van. Much better than the busload tours. Loved the Potlatch village and all the information on how life was lived by the natives. The walk through the Rainforest was fun, as well as, informational. Loved the personal stories that our guide told us. We even enjoyed the drive to the different places because our guide entertained us with stories and information along the way. She provided rain slickers, if needed and umbrellas. She took our pictures so we could actually be together in some of our pictures. We loved the salmon salad on crackers that we had at the end of the tour. Even the little shop was fun. I actually found reasonable items as remembrances.
