This was my second tour with Trafalgar. They are an outstanding organization. In addition, I have had many trips with Affordable Tours arranged by our consultant. She is an Angel.

The Alaskan adventure was spectacular. The train and boat trips exceeded expectations. Everything is expensive in Alaska and some hotels were simply what is available in the wilderness.

Majestic Alaska was truly an experience of a lifetime. The tour supervisor was experienced ensured safe and comfortable experiences for all.

This was our first guided tour. We did have some trouble waking up early, but we saw many more sights than we would have seen on our own, and there was some free time as well. All the guides were top-notch.

Our first hotel was not very good but then again I don't think that city,Fairbanks, has much to offer.
