Dave was wonderful. I can't add anymore to what has already been written. This was the best tour ever, he was fun, informative, funny, accommodating and he was on time. We got more than our money's worth.

We booked this tour separately from our cruise line and were so happy we did. The Misty Fjords tour was amazing! Dave and his niece run a small business and the personal touch they provided made the trip that much more memorable.
