Tour itself was great. Beautiful place of history and intriguing legends. Tour guide Peggy was hard to listen to though. She took too much time to speak and lost my attention frequently.

Another winner tour on vacation. We selected the Ketchikan 4 in 1 and we not disappointed at all. Mike, the owner was our guide. He gave us extra stops and a very nice insight into life in Ketchikan as well as native life. His knowledge of nature, the native people and their customs was impressive. Mike is such a happy, friendly guy and was very easy to talk to. We definitely made fast friends with him. We recommend this tour to everyone but especially those who are on a cruise ship and have limited time in port. You'll get a terrific overview of this lovely town and you'll still have time to walk the streets and do some shopping. Totem Bight is a very interesting tour with a history of totems. We didn't know much about them so the detailed information was welcome. The more you learn, the more interesting they become. Good overview of Alaskan Native American culture. Authentic totems, clan house and a carving shed all located in Tongass National Forrest; a breathtaking rainforest and beach with tide pools. Read Less

Then we took a bus to the Totem Bight State Park. Our guide, Maxwell, was clearly new and nervous and very chatty. He spent way too much time at each totem. They all had numbers under them and it would have been better if we were given a brochure with the number and descriptions and go at our own pace. Maybe have the guide available for questions. He was a good bus driver. Read Less

We took a city and area tour that included the Totem State Park. It was a nice relaxing tour. I was a little disappointed at the small number of totem poles, but it was still informative. We also took a short (maybe 1 block long) walk through a forested area near the totem pole park and had an interesting explanation of the natural trees and plants of the area. Read Less
