Alaska

The flight out of Toronto was horrible! The concourse where we boarded the plane Han NO food court and none of us could find restrooms handy. You had to walk back 10 minutes to get food and use restrooms.

 

Dear Traveler, We regret that your experience at the Toronto airport did not meet your expectations. We hope that your tour was enjoyable, and we thank you for your feedback. We look forward to welcoming you on your next tour in 2017.

I very much enjoyed my first visit to Alaska. It definitely didn't disappoint and exceeded my expectations. Our tour director Bob B. was excellent. He helped make this visit come alive. I enjoyed everything about this tour. I did the Vancouver extension which I also highly recommend. Vancouver and Victoria, two must sees when one signs up for Denali and Alaska.

Great Tour !

This was our first experience with Go Ahead Tours and it was a great trip! Our tour guide Randy was extremely knowledgeable, friendly, helpful and always excessible throughout the entire trip. If we could be assured that we would get him again we would book another tour immediately. The bus driver and local guide were also amazing. The only negative comment I would have, during the land portion of our trip, was about the man who was our bus driver/guide to Denali. I do not think that he was an employee of Go Ahead but he left a very negative impression on our party of six. I would definitely recommend Go Ahead Tours as the way to see Alaksa!

Alaska "my best tour, ever!"

The Alaska tour to Denali State Park and the ship from Anchorage to Vancouver was terrific. The accommodations were great, the food was wonderful, and plentiful. My wife and I took the ERA helicopter in Juneau to the Glendenhall Glacier and it was something we are so glad we did. It was the highlight of our experience and will be remembered for a long, long time. I took videos of the take offs and landing to show our friends. In Denali we saw, and photoessays, Grizzly Bears, Caribou, Dahl Sheep and moose. In Ketchican we went on a crab boat, It was terrific, especially when we were on the outside deck and the guide threw fish out and fed several bald eagles, who came as she whistled for them. The guide was terrific and the people, we toured with were a lot of fun. We highly recommend this trip!

Alaska - Truly, the Last Frontier

Touring Alaska was truly a lifetime experience. The land tour covered so much ground - in a short period of time - but, with the daylight lasting way-into-the-night, the hours seemed to fly by. The local tour guide, Joe, was superb. He provided "local" details that we would never have found if we had been on our own. Overall, the meals & lodging were excellent during the first three days. The only negative was the "box lunch" (lots of sugar & salt items) provided by the park service for the Denali National Park tour. Way too many hours between the morning meal and the evening meal. The park tour guide, Kate, was superior! Her ethusiasm & commentary was well received. Touring the park was a highlight of the tour. This was our first cruise and overall we were quite pleased. The accommodations, staff, meals, entertainment and the stops at the various towns along the Inland Passage were excellent. Our Tour Director, Sarah, provided historical information and tidbits for each day's adventures. Sarah was a fabulous Tour Director! The time alloted in Juneau, Skagway, Icy Strait Point and Ketchikan was sufficient. The ship disembarkation in Vancouver went smoothly, allowing us plenty of time to tour the city by the Hop On, Hop Off bus tour and enjoy a leisurely lunch. The farewell dinner that evening turned out to be the only real disappointment of the tour. The location and quality of the meal can only be graded as poor. We highly recommend this Go Ahead - our fifth - tour for anyone of any age. Johnnie & Ron

Sarah was Great

Our tour was awesome. We joined the 30% club and was exceptionally blessed with good weather and only sprinkles one day. Our tour guides and drivers were very knowledgeable and did an excellent job. All the facility used were clean and acceptable. An advantage for me would have been to have food on each site, due to my dietary needs. Downtown Vancouver was not the best choice due to late evening street people. My first cruise and the inside passage was a real wonder.

Alaska by bus, train and ship

This combination land and cruise tour provided the opportunity to explore some of Alaska's picturesque towns and marvel at the wilderness that still prevails in much of Alaska . Traveling to Dinali by train gave opportunities to glimpse wildlife and start to understand how vast and beautiful Alaska is. The cruise was a relaxing and elegant way to see so much more of the state than would otherwise have been possible.A day to sightsee in Vancouver was a great finale for the tour. We had been to Vancouver previously so didn't opt for an available tour extension but I am sure we would have enjoyed more time there. Our tour guide Stevyn ensured that the tour ran smoothly and that potential overlap with other tour groups at popular sites was minimized by careful scheduling. His professionalism and enthusiasm were consistent throughout the trip. This is the tour to take to really appreciate the grandeur of unspoiled America and the charm of Vancouver as well.

Awesome Alaska

We had Alaska on the top of our "bucket list" for the last 5 years, and it was greater than we ever imagined! The weather was perfect; we saw Denali at its best! We'll never forget the wonderful memories of a bear walking up close around our bus, riding the dog sleds at Iditarod, Ruth Glacier, the Icy Strait, the whales, and Ketchikan. Tour guides don't come any better than Stevyn; he kept us informed, on track, and made the trip fun! Alaska is amazing and a "must see"!

Everything we were promised was delivered and the tour guide was always there including at 4 am on the day of departure to get us transportation to the airport.

The Denali National Park and Wild Alaska Tour exceeded all expectations! Phil, our tour director, was very knowledgeable. The Denali experience was awesome! Mt. McKinley was in full view, the weather was beautiful, and we saw moose, caribou, bears, eagles, and mountain sheep. The inside passage was spectacular as were the excursions to the rain forests and glaciers. All of the guides did a great job! We truly enjoyed this tour!

Wonderful Experience

I want to share how great this trip was with Go Ahead. Phil, our tour director, met us at the airport and gave us ideas for dinner in Anchorage. The first night we had enough time to walk to downtown Anchorage, go to the Anchorage Museum, the Glacier Brewery and have our first Alaskan beer. Up early the next morning, and that was fine with me, but we did not have a late flight. Our hotel that evening was great, and the staff was friendly and helpful. The trip to Denali was beyond description, and our park tour guide was exceptional. We saw majestic Mt. McKinley, grizzly bears, caribou, moose, Dall sheep, bald eagles, golden eagles, It was clear and beautiful all day and we saw plenty of wildlife. We liked the Grizzly Bear Cabins and the food and fun at the recommended restaurant, Denali Salmon Bake was excellent. The Grandview Inn & Suites in Wasilla was clean and comfortable. Our cruise was beautiful and the ship went clear up and personal with the Hubbard Glacier. We booked 4 land tours with the cruise lines and we were not disappointed. All the tours were booked before we got on the ship, after I read all the reviews. We loved them, especially the zip line in Icy Straight. We went whale watching, walked through rain forests, road the train through gold mining country, saw the Mendenhall Glacier, and took a float plane across the Misty Fjords in Ketchikan. We viewed humpback whales, orcas, porpoises, seals and sea lions from the ship. We did whatever we could on the cruise line and enjoyed the theatre presentations, karaoke, bingo, gambling and trivia. We paid up for a French dinner one evening in the Olympia and it was well worth it. It probably helped that the tour had a great bunch of people, who were always willing to join us on an experience. Our hotel in Vancouver was spacious and relaxing, as our room had a Jacuzzi tub. The dinner the last evening was delightful and I recommend the seafood linguini, as you are tired of salmon by this time. Phil recommended Granville Island and it is not to be missed. We also did the hop on and off bus and saw lots of Vancouver. I might add that we had no trouble with air travel. Go Ahead called us to see if we wanted to pay extra for a direct flight and that is what we did. So, I would recommend working with Go Ahead on the flights they might schedule for you. I am busy working on where I want to go next year.

Well balanced tour!

This is not just a cruise, it is truly an Alaskan and Canadian Tour as the title suggests. We began with a land tour that was a little intense with 3 full days of wilderness touring by bus, train and wildlife bus. We saw virtually every major animal, from black and grizzly bears, to moose, caribou, and Dahl sheep and uncountable bald eagles. Our tour guide was so knowledgeable and his pride in Alaska was so clear that we all learned so much state lore and history throughout these three days. Stepping onto the Celebrity Millennium changed all that. Now we traveled in the lap of luxury to see up close and personally the Hubbard Glacier and on an excursion, the Mendenhall Glacier. The cracks of ice calving were as loud as thunder and the ice was a gorgeous diamond blue - a lifetime experience. We were plied with excellent food and beverage for the next 7 days ending up in Vancouver where 6 of us extended over a few days to see more of the city and take a ferry over to Vancouver island and Victoria. We spent time in the beautiful Chinese Garden, Gastown and dined stylishly in Yaletown. Victoria proved enjoyable with visits to the museums and Butchart Gardens. Our tour director stayed close at every turn and we never worried about time, luggage, transportation or any details - all rested in her capable hands. This was a fun, entertaining experience I can recommend easily to anyone.

Awesome Alaska

I would highly recommend this tour. The land tour, taken first, was awesome. The cruise, taken afterward, was a great way to relax after several days of coach & train excursions. The land accommodations were clean and comfortable; and the included meals were adequate. The ship's (Celebrity Millennium's) accommodations, food and service were excellent. The small group (14) on this tour was a pleasant, fun-filled mix of people who made my Alaska experience even better than I imagined.

Wonderful director

Phil was excellent especially in the cruise crisis that ensued. We asked a lot of tough questions and he got answers to all of them. Also, Go Ahead and Phil did an excellent job in working thru all the details i.e. arranging the Resurrection Bay Cruise, getting us hotels for the stay in Seward and rearranging the flights. Kelly at go Ahead is continuing to work thru our request with Celebrity for additional compensation.
