Liz was a great tour guide who was very knowledgeable about the area. She keep us entertained on a very wet day in Sitka and showed her love for where she lives. I enjoyed the tour as it would have been difficult to maneuver all of the places on our own with the limited time from the cruise. It is worth doing one time.
Much More than a Scenic Tour!
Sandra_H, May 2024
Seeing the raptors was an exciting experience. Brett Davis did a great job of giving us information about the place that cares for wounded animals, The bear recovery center also a highlight. I appreciate all that I learned about Sitka.
Disappointed. Too rushed. Not enough time to read, watch videos, observethe animals & buy from gift shop.

The old airport, Mt E high school, dormitories, war history etc in that area. Eagle sightings, fishing harbor.
A must do in Stika!

Seeing the bears having fun themselves in close distance was definitely Rm the highlight. Eagles were great too but they just sit still so not as fun but still good to see them. I hope we can stay an extra 30 minutes at the National forest though; May be the organizers can think about this? I definitely recommend everyone to take this tour. If you are out or time, you should at least go to the fortress of bears!
Great tour of Sitka

We loved the fortress of the bear and our tour guide Brett Davis was incredible and made the tour he was knowledgeable and entertaining
Fun and informative

Darryl, our guide, was a wealth of information. He was informative and interesting to listen to. His instructions were clear, and we had adequate time at each site. In fact, I think the tour went longer than expected.
Alaskan native animals capture Aussie hearts

Freedom of bears was our favourite. More info could have been given in Raptor centre, advising of owl enclosure. Driver needs to be more patient as most tourists 65+years. We realise time constraint applies.
Knowledgeable, Helpful Darrell
Sandy_S, May 2024
Silver Lake, walk in forest, and walk around town were most memorable. Guide came back to starring point to pick us up for rest of tour when we were late. Really appreciated that.
A premium small group experience
Everett_T, May 2024
We had a great tour guide (Yvonne) who was informative and friendly. We covered a lot of places in a short time. Fortress of the Bear and the Raptor Center were very interesting. Nice little nature walk and a couple of other stops along the way. Small group of only 9 people. Good value for the price.
Great Tour

Multiple tours in one in Sitka, Alaska
Cathy_H, Sep 2023
The tour to the different areas was great, but Steve, our guide, was in so much of a hurry. I know he just wanted us to get thru the tour because of driving to the different places, but then the tour time should be adjusted to take that consideration. It would have been a better tour with another 1/2 hour of time.
Great experience
Sophie_P, Sep 2023
The tour is well designed, and our guide, Tamsen, was exceptional! Informative, entertaining, interesting, I highly recommend.
Great day
Andrew_G, Sep 2023
We had a great afternoon on this great trip, it is a lovely town with ice shops and a great pub that is a must visit
Michele_P, Sep 2023
Our guide Steven was INCREDIBLE! So knowledgeable about the local area and history. My daughter and I loved the eagle, bear and totem pole centers. Toby and all the bears were amazing to see so up close. We have an even greater appreciation for them. We were so lucky the salmon were still spawning in late September. Such a sight to see. Will recommend to anyone coming to your beautiful town. It has been the highlight of our entire cruise, even in the continuous rain. 🐻🐾🦅🐟🌲🌿
Great way to see Sitka with a local
Karon_A, Sep 2023
Tamsin was a great guide and clearly loves her town and the beautiful plants and animals in the area. The trip was well paced with loads of information about the bears and raptors. Great value for money.
Nice rainy day visit
Corina_S, Sep 2023
Very friendly guide, mini bus was comfortable, little bit of trouble with the audio, but appreciated a helping hand and stool to get in and out. Nice taste of Sitka on a rainy day, but stops are really too short if you like taking pictures:)
Worth the trip
Frank_F, Sep 2023
Seeing all the salmon in the river. The bears were amazing. The eagles were bigger and better up close.
Worth it!
Chris_F, Sep 2023

Sitka Gem
Elizabeth_D, Sep 2023
It was amazing to experience the bears, raptures, bald eagles and totem poles up close. Our guide Vaughn, was very knowledgeable about Sitka culture and economy. He made sure our trip was a memorable one. Vans were new and clean and group was small. Very comfortable tour. Recommend highly!
Stephen was a Grat Guide
Miriam_B, Sep 2023
Stephen was a knowledgeable guide who did his best for us to avoid the crowds of the big tour buses. His intimate details of the Fortress of the Bear inhabitants and their rehab stories was wonderful.
