A Recent Review of this tour

Our family loved our day with Raymie. She had great stories to tell during the drive, and allowed us to customize our stops for two young kids. Because she's a local guide, she could share stories with us about life in Alaska that a seasonal guide wouldn't know. It was one of those days we'll remember.
