Driving rain & strong winds prevented us from going into the water for this Duck tour. However, our guide was quite knowledgeable & funny which helped make the weather less of an issue.

Was unable to see out of the vehicle through the plastic sheeting put up for the rain as the windows kept fogging up. Paper towels were provided to wipe the windows down but did little to help.

Was provided a refund for half the cost of this excursion since we could not do the water portion of the tour.

Thoroughly enjoyed the coach ride highlighting the sights of Juneau. The guide was very knowledgeable and especially enjoyed the amazing Glacier Gardens portion of the tour.

The all-terrain vehicle ride up & down the mountain to see the view from the top of Glacier Gardens was a highlight of this tour.

Enjoyed having enough time for some serious shopping!

Would highly recommend!

The guide spoke too much about her personal life rather than about the area. Would have preferred to see more of the area and heard less about her family.

Other than that, I enjoyed this little village. No real shopping to be had in Hoonah...did my shopping at the pier in the cannery area set up with the tourist shops.

Nicely done shopping area here. Lovely views of the ship docked out in the water as we took tender boats in to this port.

Had a beautiful time here. Enjoyed the knowledgeable guide on our bus ride through this lovely city. The views from the mountain where our bus parked were amazing of the city.

Had plenty of time to walk around the harbor & shop which I loved.

Found the totem pole park fascinating. The Fairmont hotel lobby, shops & grounds were outstanding to see!

Would love to return to Victoria!
