Matt is awesome! Very knowledgeable about the area and hikes. This tour is also great if you’re a solo traveler or beginner in hiking who wants to learn more about nature. We weren’t able to see a moose or a bear (they’re unpredictable) but the hike inside the rain forrest was quite relaxing and fun. This is definitely a must and I recommend it to people who are in Anchorage for a short amount of time. Thanks Matt for the awesome trip!
