We had a pleasant resident driver. Six people were booked, but only four (my crew) made it, so there was plenty of room in the transport. The Raptor Center was great, although, had we made it 45 minutes later, we'd have seen witnessed a speaker addressing us with a bald eagle on

Thank you for your review. Yes sometimes we get more than we planned for at the bear fortress such as "mating season" and as you saw when new cubs arrive, they have to be dewormed. I''m glad you had fun, please come again sometime.

Met our guide and fellow visitors outside the easily found Harrigan Centennial Hall. There were only 6 of us which meant it was easy to ask questions and hear all the answers. Our guide made the tour interesting throughout and she also made it personal by telling us about her

This was a ego trip for the guide who spent the majority of our time driving around Sitka to all the places where SHE had some connection, ie, the area where she learned to drive! By the time we actually got to the Bear Sanctuary, we had very little time to enjoy watching the

Thank you Jane for your input. We do remember you well. We are really sorry you didn't enjoy your tour like the rest of your group did. We learned about you when we met your tour to find the umbrella you left behind. Once or twice a year we get a reminder that you just can't please everyone, no matter how hard we try. We really hope you found some enjoyment on the rest of your trip to Alaska.

This tour was fun and informative. The brief hike in the rainforest was spectacular. We saw a bald eagle and thousands of salmon lined up in a river getting ready to spawn. The bear refuge was fascinating as we saw both black and brown bears playing and feeding. Our guide was
