Bob made the areas around "The largest city in the U.S." come to life with his in depth stories and descriptions of the historic characters who were the founders of "The Paris of the Northwest". We learned about the Tlinget peoples, and other Native groups, as well as meet some current residents with small businesses in the city; soap, chocolate and gin makers and were offered discounts if we purchased these items. The same discount as a "local". He is a former educator who has never lost the knack. This is a very personal tour. You won't feel like you are in the back of a crowd. I highly recommend this tour.

Bob's knowledge of Sika's history and culture as well as his familiarity with area animals and plant life and his interest in the local townspeople and their talents made this tour most enjoyable.
He took us to major historical points within the town, answered our questions about plants, animals, government, culture, schools, etc., and also stopped in at businesses with locally made products. This was just what we had hoped for; an authentic opportunity to learn about the town and surrounding area and meet some locals. Bob's knowledgeable talks along with his readiness to entertain our questions made us feel more like students that tourist. Recommended!

Bob was our friendly guide and is a one man show who narrated our 2-hour+ walking tour. We were impressed with his knowledge of Sitka, its Russian history and general Alaskan history. We were happy to be able to explore Sitka downtown and the seawalk with a local. We experienced the local flavors of this beautiful town. A must try is the Theobroma chocolate, Windsong Soap (I love the Midnight Sun) and Alaska Pure Seasalt. Thanks Bob!

This was a walking tour. The guide Bob operates on his own. Great guy, an Alaska old timer who knows the city's history and people. My wife and I had a great time.
