My friends and I had the absolute thrill of taking your Alaska’s Whales & Rainforest Trails tour with Scott and Colin. To me, it was by far the most wonderful excursion of our entire trip (via Holland America); in fact, it was one of the best tours of my traveling experience. Guide Scott was incredibly knowledgeable and had a special talent for sharing his knowledge in an engaging, funny, and comprehensive way. He even made us forget we were in a deluge! Boat pilot, Colin, was another treat…so full of enthusiasm and information. Having an underwater microphone to hear the humpback’s signal for the bubble net feeding made our experience one of multisensory thrills. Scott and Colin’s enthusiasm was absolutely contagious. What a great team! I was also touched by Scott’s attention to a little girl on the tour, engaging her at her level and, I think, allaying some fears. As we were riding the bus back to the ship, one of my pals said that this tour was going to be hard to beat. It was! For me, nothing came close. Please pass along my kudos to Scott and Colin. I WILL be back!
