The trip exceeded my expectations! The staff and crew were very professional, helpful, friendly and outgoing. The naturalists Heather, Zack and Brittany were very knowledgeable, easy to approach with questions and kept things fun/lively with presentations, trivia, contests, etc. Food was much better than I expected, excellent selections and presentations by Chef Evan. Great selection of local draft beers and specialty cocktails made daily by Drew. I had an amazing cruise, weather was perfect, we saw lots of wildlife and orcas, the one animal I hoped to see. I would recommend to friends, family, anyone....THANK YOU!

Didn’t realize how much food we would actually get! I was very pleasantly surprised by the quality of food and was so grateful for all the bottled water. The boxed lunches were good. Not what I’m used to but I didn’t dislike any of it. Our guides were so amazing! Very knowledgeable and they were very good with our safety as we drove. Believe me, we saw some awful drivers of other companies and also a couple accidents so I was relieved by the safety of our guides. These two gentleman are now our family. We loved them so much and we all miss them terribly. They were truly inspiring and good honest men. The accommodations were top notch! I felt like royalty every place we stayed. Knowing how impoverished the villages seemed (because I don’t really know if they are actually impoverished) I felt safe at every lodge.

Our stay at the Denali Back Country Lodge was special. What a lovely, quiet resort! At the end of a long road in Denali National Park, the resort is worth the drive. The sounds of a lovely stream help lull you to sleep. Also, the American Cruise Lines small boat cruise was wonderful.

We loved our time at Pook's Hill and would definitely go back! The staff was friendly and our guides Mike & Mario were excellent. Food was fantastic, Dasha is an amazing cook. Our resort in Placencia was clean and the views were amazing. The location could have been better, we had to taxi into Placencia for meals, costing $20/day. Ben, the front desk manager actively discouraged us from booking a snorkeling trip, which was frustrating. We were able to book independently with Go Seas tours and had a great time. I think we could have spent one less day in Placencia, there was not a lot to see or do, but we enjoyed our time there nonetheless. Overall, a wonderful trip!

This was such a wonderful trip! I can't say enough about the Adventure Life staff who helped us book it and the Alaskan Dream shore staff who coordinated our pre and post cruise transportation and then the Alaskan Dream Chichagof crew--they were FANTASTIC. They took such good care of me, my husband, and especially my 82 year old Dad, making accommodations for him when needed with activities and mobility. The food was EXCEPTIONAL and the stewards and chef and his team seemed to make any and all accommodations for food requests that anyone on the cruise needed. The weather was perfect, too, so whomever ordered that up should be appreciated as well!

Trip was excellent - one small problem with a transfer was quickly corrected. Our guide in Cusco and Macho Picchu, Juancarlos, could not have been better. Very knowledgeable and a great sense of humor.

Our tour went great. Organized, friendly and knowledgeable help. We had one glitch with our luggage; the staff in Peru was quickly available and followed up until it was resolved.
