Justin is an amazing tour guide. He even sang the Anchorage flag song to us. The drive to the wildlife center is gorgeous. The center itself is so lovely. There is so much land for the animals and everything was beautiful. Thank you, Justin!

Good morning, Kandi! Thanks so much for the positive comments about your tour with Salmon Berry!! The Wildlife Conservation Center is definitely a highlight of our various offerings! And, of course, the Southbound drive along Turnagain Arm is stunning! Justin is a terrific guide! Knowledgeable, enthusiastic and great fun.......as you learned during your tour experience! Must confess, I was unaware he had a singing voice! The Alaska flag song can be difficult to sing so you were fortunate he knew what he was doing! I will pass along your comments to him! Again, many thanks! We are grateful you selected our tour company while in Anchorage!!
