“The small intimate group setting really complimented the striking beauty that was all around us. We thank you all for making it a memorable trip and hope to come back again very soon.”

Jody and Aric Frantz, Chicago

“The meals were fantastic and kept us full the whole trip.”

Phil Consuegra and Lauren Maher

“I would rate your guide a ten. He is awesome. He worked so hard to spot animals, arrange outings, plan hikes, cook food that we liked, etc. He is a very sensitive person who was able to spot when one of us was having difficulties and he went out of his way to make us smile. He also went well above the call of duty to make our trip special. For example, when we had an unexpectedly warm day in Valdez, he planned a picnic dinner on the wharf, complete with cut flowers for the table, fajitas and blueberries flambé!”
