Our tour with Dawn exceeded our expectations. This was our second journey to Alaska and it was important to me to see as much as I could during our travel from Seward to Anchorage. Dawn fulfilled that wish and left us all wanting to return for more. A very enthusiastic and knowledgeable guide, she took our group to several scenic areas and patiently waited as we gawked at the beauty of it all. Should I return to Alaska, I will just hire her to manage the entire trip.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Patty, wow! Thank you so much for this great 5-star review. I had a blast with you and your cool family. I really appreciate the positive words. There's lots more to see and do and I'd love to plan a custom tour. Please come back anytime.

We enjoyed our visit to Anchorage with Dawn. She picked the four of us up promptly at the hotel. She gave us excellent advice about booking the Alpine Air tour which included a helicopter ride to the glacier and then dogsledding. We also went to the Alaska Wildlife Center and later had an overview of the town of Anchorage. Dawn was a lot of fun to travel with and very informative.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Elaine - fun to travel with the four of you too. Appreciate the awesome review. Thanks!!!

We are a family of 6, and Dawn, our guide, worked with us to customize the tour to our interests. We got a tour of Anchorage including Earthquake park, the waterside and mud flats, and a short hike up to Flat Top mountain before heading out for Whittier, ate lunch at a small locals' bar, stopped and took lots of photos of the spectacular scenery whenever we wanted, stopped at a wildlife center, and finished up with a short tour of Whittier ( not a lot to see there). Did a lot in a few hours.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much Kevin. I had a great day with your family. Appreciate your review!

Dawn was punctual for our pick up as greeted us warmly. She had a day planned,including our pre-planned excursion and sought our input. We greatly enjoyed her local knowledge on our travel from Seward to Anchorage. A number of beautiful scenic stops, local information and a great day. I would highly recommend Dawn specifically to anyone traveling to Alaska. She was knowledgeable, friendly and made us feel like we have known her forever.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Noreen for choosing me and for taking the time to write a review. So glad to hear that you and Sally enjoyed your day and brought us that amazing weather. Appreciate the generous leftovers too. I welcome you back to Alaska for more adventures. Cheers n' happy travels!

We had Dawn as our guide on August 18th 2017. We toured Seward and ended the day in Anchorage with multiple stops throughout the way. Dawn was very knowledgble and extremely patient and accommodating. I highly recommend Dawn as a tour guide in the South Central Alaska area

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Denise. Thanks for your five star review! I had a great day with your fun family. Happy travels to everyone!

In the many tours that I have taken this is only the second where I have been very disappointed. I will first say that Dawn was lovely. Yes, a bit quirky, She is all bout music, concerts, festivals, and breweries. If this is your passion you will love her. The tour is beyond over priced. Over $700 including cancellation insurance. Not much to see. On top of cost ,additional for tram and conservation center. Could have taken an uber for far less. Very unhappy,

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi and thanks for taking the time to write a review. Sorry this didn't work for you financially. It probably would've been best to share the trip cost with other travelers as you originally intended. I really appreciate the positive comments about my personality and hope you enjoyed the rest of your cruise!

Dawn picked us up from the hotel on time, Dawn organised the entire trip and everything required for a great day with the dog sledding and helicopter tour. Thanks again Dawn.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Craig. I'm so happy you were open to the scenic helicopter flight and dog sledding on the glacier. It was definitely a highlight of my summer. Wow - Incredible stuff! Thanks heaps!

Dawn was an excellent tour guide. She was knowledgable about the area and provided tour flexibility based on what I wanted to do. She had many great suggestions for activities. I also found her to be quirky and entertaining which is characteristic of many Alaskans. I highly recommend Dawn for your Alaskan adventure.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks lots Razzu! Gorgeous day and awesome bear sighting in Bootleggers Cove!

Dawn really customized a transfer from our cruise ship arrival in Seward to Anchorage for our family of five. Her timing about leaving later was spot on, because we not only avoided the crazy rush getting off the shop but also were behind all the groups at the major stops. She is an outdoors enthusiast, and really knows her stuff.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Awesome Jim. Appreciate the 5 star review! T H A N K S L O T S !!!

Dawn is great! She didn't really want to have an agenda so we went with the flow and glad we did. The weather did not cooperate at all, but Dawn had lots of ideas to entertain us from Seward to Anchorage. We would travel with her again anytime.

Dawn was terrific. She had done research on the areas of our specific interests and made sure we got to all those areas first. She then gave us a great overview of the Anchorage area. Since our time was very limited, she made sure we got the most out of our tour. We highly recommend her services.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I enjoyed the research and loved to learn from you as well. I take pride in making the most of your time... thanks for the five star review!

Dawn was excellent as a planner with us pre-trip and as a guide for our trip. She is knowledgeable, energetic, flexible, hard-working with a very postive manner. We had to make some changes on the fly during our trip: no problem for Dawn. She always had good suggestions for activities and for dining. Also, she was a careful and a safe driver for approximately 1000 miles in Alaska from Anchorage to Fairbanks to Seward to Anchorage. We greatly enjoyed her guide service for 12 days during Aug 2015.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I love your outstanding review Tricia! It's nice to let travelers know that Alaska has so much more to offer beyond a day trip. Take care - Thanks!

First of all Dawn is the BEST. She made our trip to Anchorage and other area's (by air travel ) of Alaska wonderful. Dawn is an extremely knowledgeable young lady of Alaska and many other topics. Besides that her character, integrity and humor are beyond reproach. Dawn is now a good friend for many years to come.

Dawn is very friendly and cheerful. She has a pleasant manner and provides interesting information. She tailored the tour to us - our requirements and our abilities - and she was flexible and did not stint with her time. Her transport is 'different' but it added to the enjoyment of the tour. All round this was an excellent experience.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi. Glad my motorhome mode of transport was fun. My vehicle fleet has expanded too - come back anytime - lots more to see. CHEERS Susan!
