This was a great excursion during our cruise. We might have scared the animals with our umbrellas but we weathered the rain and had fun kissing a moose, feeding the caribou and howling with Isis. Steve and Mario were informative and entertaining throughout the tour. If you want to see Alaska and wildlife, this is a must do tour!

This tour was absolutely amazing!! Steve and Mario were so great, they were full of info and had great stories to share with everyone. So many amazing animals, and the view from the top of the property is beautiful. This was really educational and fun; best tour I did in Alaska. Don't miss this one!!!

A great shore excursion if you are on an Alaskan Cruise. Steve and his partner did a fantastic job of showing the various animals including wolverines, bears, rain deer, moose, weasels, and many more. Their stories are entertaining as they have done film work with Disney, Animal Planet, and National Geographic. A must see location.

If you love animals, look no further - this will be one of the best experiences of your life. Highly recommended for kids as well. Steve and Mario are amazing hosts and we were thoroughly entertained as well as educated.

We had been looking forward to this tour - a shore excursion from our cruise - so very much, and it exceeded our expectations! The ferry trip from Skagway to the beautiful town of Haines took in some great scenery, and the bus trip from Haines to the refuge was a lot of fun with the lovely bus driver filling... More

This is a MUST do when in the area. I'd go back and see it again! It's incredible how close you can get to these animals. The tour is very interactive and up close and personal! We got to feed a porcupine, pet a baby moose, feed reindeer, and feed a moose a carrot from our mouths. The tour guides... More
