- So much better than a cruise!
We had a fantastic time on the Discovery tour through AAU. I can’t tell how many times my husband and family said we were so glad our cruise got cancelled by Covid. This was sooo much better than the Alaskan cruise we had planned. Just 14 people in an incredibly comfortable large van. Everyone on the trip got along well even though most of us just met there. Suzanne was our driver and guide and she was the best!! Having lived in Alaska for much of her life, she had great things to share. Answered all our questions. Was patient with a couple of us who walk a little slower. Every detail was planned perfectly. Our accommodations comfortable. The special daily adventures were great and varied . We had a raft ride, two airboat rides and walking on a glacier. One airboat drove right among glaciers. Tour of a native village display and fur camping site, some chose extra plane trips and Dog sledding. We all enjoyed six hours out in the bay viewing wildlife to round out our trip… Some of us chose to ride on the Gold Star section of the Alaskan railroad which includes a meal and has a glass dome. Well worth the extra money. Our train went from Anchorage to Seward. In Seward we took an incredible wildlife viewing boat seeing several whales, sea lions, puffins, seals, sea otter, and right up close to a huge glacier. Another interesting thing some of us chose was to see the sled dogs and ride on a wagon pulled by the dogs. I feel like the 10 days planned by this company, provided such a great composite of what Alaska is like. Their choice of restaurants and accommodations were great. Every detail planned out ahead of time. We added a day before and a day after in Anchorage just to relax and not feel so hurried. I highly recommend Alaska Adventure Unlimited!
- A Grand Trip that Promised Many Things and Delivered on them ALL!We just completed an eight day deluxe adventure trip with Alaska Adventure Unlimited this past June 2022. It was a family trip with two grandparents, two parents and three grandchildren (Ages 9, 12 and 14). The trip exceeded our expectations in so many ways. Our tour guide, Lyle, was professional, personable, knowledgeable and fun to travel with. All of the transitions and appointments went off seamlessly and on time. We also really appreciated the staff of Erica and Melissa for making this all come together and for quickly answering all of our questions. The hotel accommodations were first class as were the dining arrangements. Our favorite parts of the adventure were the Knik Glacier, the cruise of Resurrection Bay, the Flightseeing over Denali, and traveling on the Gold Star Alaska Railway. We saw black bears (3), moose (12+), humpback whales, orcas, eagles, sea lions, seals, otters, caribou, and a large cat in Talkeetna who some call the mayor. Our modes of transportation included; a jet boat, small airplane to cross Mt. Denali, comfortable mini bus, river rafts, kayaks, pontoon boat, cruise boat, train, tour bus in Denali, limo, a twelve dog sled ride, and a five-ton U.S. army truck to ford a river. We all officially love Alaska and the Alaskan Adventure Unlimited staff.
Can’t say enough about this tour company and experience. Our tour guide (Dorothy) was incredible – knowledgeable, friendly, and thoughtful with every detail. AAU seamlessly coordinated every aspect of our trip. All we had to do was choose our activities and show up! Nothing was left to chance, and plans were reworked when necessity called. The tour company offered so many different types of active adventure activities (white water rafting, zip lining, ATV riding, river boating, glacier hiking, flying etc) and was so customizable to fit our needs. Alaska is an amazing place, and I am so glad we chose to go with AAU. We hope to be back again to explore some more!
We enjoyed the BEST OF ALASKA 8 day tour and the experience was outstanding. Every day was better than the day before. The tour ran like clockwork and our guide Dorothy was in a class by herself. She was enthusiastic, informative, and friendly. She became like family. It was easy to see she loved her state and was genuinely excited to share her stories with us. The Whitewater and Glacier Run floats were energizing and beautiful. The Mat-Su Glacier Park was interesting and we loved exploring the glacier as Dorothy skillfully guided us through the ever- changing ice fields. Our Flightseeing and Glacier Landing was rained out and Dorothy managed to rearrange our itinerary so we could enjoy that magical time on a later day. Customized service was at the forefront of this experience. Dorothy made extra coffee/latte stops as we crisscrossed the region. She made the trip special for our family. As a special surprise during our last meal together, Dorothy bought a large cheesecake and the group celebrated my father-in-law’s 90th birthday. It was the perfect touch to an unforgettable week of breathtaking vistas and once-in-a -lifetime experiences. As our millennial children shared with us as they returned from the helicopter ride and glacier dog sled tour with grandpa (the 90 year old birthday boy), ‘THIS WAS THE BEST VACATION EVER’! Thank you for giving this gift of family time.
We had never done a multi day tour before. The Grand Discovery Alaska trip with Alaska Adventures Unlimited was hands down the best bucket list experience. We had a fantastic time. Jamie was an excellent guide and driver. Very personable. Lots of great tips. He timed everything perfectly! We will recommend this tour to all our friends. I recommend doing all the extra add ons. If you don’t you will wish you had:). We added the rafting tour, landed on glacier at Denali, dog sledding on glacier, katmai bear watching all day experience and salmon fishing.
