Our bus driver/guide was from Utah, but seemed to have studied up for this job. The bus speakers went out, but another bus was brought to replace it. The speaker at the totem museum was a native Alaskan who knew the history of the totems and customs of the people. Potlatch Park had old cars in a barn, which was not explained. The gift shop was very large and sold native and not native products. Read Less

Enjoyed this. Went to see bears. Didn't see any. Really there are WAY too many people to see bears. Wish we could have gotten back in time to see Lumberjack show.

We did a short tour around town then went to the cultural centre where we were shown totem poles. The guide had a great knowledge and there were some really old ones there. We actually were allowed in the archives to visit the ones they are trying to protect and preserve. The weather was awful, torrential rain so made it hard to enjoy the outing. Read Less
