“The trip was well organized and it had a lot of packed, fun-filled days. Our guide, John, was simply amazing! He was so knowledgeable about Alaska with facts and tidbits as we traveled from place to place, as well as being accommodating and caring. He just made everyone in our group of 12 feel like a family.”

 —Helen F.

“Much better tour package than a cruise/tour I took a few years ago! Accommodations and excursions were excellent, food options great, and the benefits of a small group vs big cruise ship are priceless.”

—Tom V.

“This trip exceeded my expectations. I experienced a variety of excursions that were both informative and exciting. I highly recommend this tour with Alaska Adventure Unlimited.”

—Karen R.

“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. I recommend doing all the extra add ons. If you don’t, you will wish you had.”

—Danette S.

“We hiked, rafted, and kayaked. We saw moose, caribou, grizzly and black bears, eagles, and whales. The views were incredible every day. Our guide, Dwight, was fantastic. I would recommend this trip wholeheartedly.”

—Rose C.
