This tour was one of three that we took on our first trip to Alaska recently, and in truth, we (my wife and I) wish we'd taken it first! Why, you might ask? One word, "Bob"! He is the owner/operator of this tour, which he provides all year round, AND he does professional photography. Bob not only enjoys relaying a lifetime of experience, living in Alaska, he also enjoys providing photo lessons to his guests in maximizing use of their CELL PHONE CAMERAS, which everyone seems to have and use these days! The chauffeuring is fully narrated by him, full of history, natural science that created this gorgeous land, local cultures and their customs, visiting wildlife conservancy centers and those free instructions on how you can capture those one time memories in ways suitable for printing and framing. If you journey to Anchorage, Alaska, or that area, check out "PicTours Alaska"; ask for Bob! You won't find a better tour guide and new friend in all of Alaska!

This was another tour we booked in Anchorage and was very good to view the glaciers and scenery. Bob was very knowledgeable and knew his glaciers! He also helped us with our photography to capture the sweet spot of photos. We saw wildlife along the way and got out of van and photographed Dall Sheep on the mountainside. We had many stops on our tour and visited the Wildlife Sanctuary. We thought this may be hokey seeing the animals in controlled surroundings but it was a rehabilitation center for the wildlike to hopefully return them back to their natural surroundings. We then capped off our adventure visiting the 'Ring of Glacier's' which was extraordinary. HIghly recommend this tour.
