Arriving by Cruise?
We recommend you contact your cruise line to reserve one of our cruise shore excursions. A direct cruise line shore excursion reservation insures your satisfaction and guarantees your seat on tour for your ship's arrival and depature, even if the ship is late to port. Prices may vary slightly, but all are very close to our online advertised shore excursion retail price. Expert advice is offered on board with your cruise line's shore excursions staff. Lastly, if for some unforeseen reason we are late getting you to the ship, your cruise line will cover the expense of getting you to the next port of call.
To book one of our custom group tours or reserve a space on a cruise shore excursion as an independent traveler, please complete a custom tour inquiry form. Note: as an independent traveler, prebooking a shore excursion through Gastineau Guiding can only be done on a stand-by basis (space on shore excursions may only be available if the scheduled cruise line releases it the day prior to the tour). If you have a flexible schedule and are interested in at least a couple of our tour options, this may work for you. Gastineau Guiding will confirm reservations upon payment with an email message, if an email address is provided.
Interested in a Group Tour?
We specialize in arranging private custom tours for families, reunions, business travel groups, photographers, researchers and other groups visiting Juneau. Custom trip options are exclusive and feature private shuttles, unique sightseeing venues, up-close wildlife viewing and multi-sport activities. You can even charter one of our premier exploration vessels to take your group to the remote Point Retreat Lighthouse on Admiralty Island National Monument, known as the "fortress of bears," for an unforgettable day trip. Snacks, picnic lunches and catered meals are available upon request. You can be sure that your experience will be the very best that Juneau has to offer.
See trip details of our exclusive private custom tours such as the Whales and Wilderness Exploration or Mendenhall Glacier Day Hike, or arrange a custom tour by selecting "Other" on our custom tour inquiry form. Any of our cruise shore excursions can be operated as a private tour too. Please describe what you want for your custom tour experience in the comments box.
