Dawn was friendly, flexible, fun, and knowledgeable about the area's history, culture, and hidden gems. We had a group that ranged from an infant to two seniors, and she worked with us to plan a day to suit our group. We would definitely recommend booking with her!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Appreciate it Hannah! I had a great day with you and your cool fun family! Come up again anytime and I’ll be in touch if I ever get to Guam. THANKS!

Dawn is well traveled and knows a lot about this area, having been here for ten years. She was very communicative and prompt, as well as pleasant and flexible. We were time limited due to a flight. Even so, we saw a lot on our way from Seward to Anchorage, and Dawn gave us a quick tour of downtown. We enjoyed our time with Dawn and recommend her for others who are making the connection from Seward to Anchorage.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much for the great review. Great day - short and sweet. Come back up anytime.

Dawn provided the 4 of us an interesting, engaging, and enjoyable tour/transfer from Seward to Anchorage following our cruise. She gave us a menu of options and we choose a brief tour of Seward, a visit to the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center, and a tour w lunch at Gridwood. Dawn also responded to all of our questions re life in Alaska. She is very knowledgeable and experienced, yet young and lively.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for this great 5-star review. I’m thrilled to hear such good feedback! Happy travels.

We truly enjoyed our tour with Dawn. She is so nice, warm and an excellent guide. She is very flexible and shared a lot of information about Alaska. It was our first time to visit Alaska and this tour met/exceeded all our expectations. Definitely, made our Alaska adventure a memorable one. We highly recommended this tour and most especially Dawn.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for the AWESOME review and checking in with me after I experienced the adventure of a 7.0 earthquake. Your positive review is helpful in spreading the word that Alaska is enjoyable all year round and not just a summer destination. It was a pleasure to spend the day with such a cool group of ladies and I hope you return.

Dawn did a wonderful job. She was right on time to pick us up. She had to fill in unexpectedly at the last minute due to illness for another guide. She was very flexible. She knew the area well. We enjoyed the variety of things we saw during the day. We would absolutely recommend her to anyone else looking to get to Anchorage from Seward who doesn't want to be part of a big tour bus group.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I really appreciate the great review. Thanks so much for sharing! Grateful.

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

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.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thrilled with your great review! Would love to see ya again. Thanks!!!!!!!!!!
