We thoroughly enjoyed our stop in Juneau. We were met at the dock by Scott and Annette Ranger. Then they gave us a great tour as promised in your brochure. Would do it again in a heartbeat.

The afternoon whale sighting and the nature walk defies description. The humpbacks provided unbelievable picture opportunities. The guide was very helpful and knowledgeable and the boat driver was expert in getting us breathtaking views.
