This was one of my favorite excursions. Sitka is compact with lots to see and do. The tour guide, a native Alaskan, was friendly and knowledgeable.

Our guide was really good. She even spoke Tlingit and was very knowledgable about plant life in the historic park. There were at least 10 bald eagles perched in the trees around the bear refuge.

We were warmly greeted by the staff. The tour started on time, beautiful view, and the most impressive one is the visit of bear sanctuary.
