We were picked up on the dock of our cruise ship where we boarded a nice roomy tour bus. We made a couple quick stops to gather some more tourmates and then we were off! Candy was an awesome tour guide providing us with LOTS of history of the town as well as cultural information about the area. This was a great tour where we were able to get on and off the bus and see many of the little things first hand that you would on a train tour. Not only was it informative and we got to see so much, but it was a BARGAIN! Less than half of what the train would have cost us and we saw so much more. We even got to take pictures in front of the Welcome to Alaska sign! I suggest bringing a snack and some water along with you. I recommend this tour highly.
