    The tour itself is a five but I didn't like Alaska Airlines. No tv screen on back of seats plus I put in for aisle seating. While I got them on the return trip, I was in the middle seat going. Luckily for me no one sat in the aisle seat on the first leg so I was able to move over.

    This was the most incredible trip that I have ever taken. It was my first group tour and I was apprehensive but everyone was so friendly. We saw the most amazing things along the way: beautiful scenery, lots of wildlife, friendly locals., and the Arctic Circle. Our tour guide, Ann, kept us informed as to what we were seeing. I would love to do a tour with her again. And I definitely will return to Alaska!

    Very enjoyable. Had a great tour manager. Seeing the northern lights and dog sledding were definitely the highlights of the trip. The cruise on Prince William Sound, in the snow, was a beautiful experience. The train trip between Fairbanks and Talkeetna had beautiful scenery but was a little long. This is the 3rd trip we've taken with Collette and probably my favorite.

    Merrin was a fantastic tour guide who made sure we saw all the sights we hoped for, helped us get to know each other, and kept us feeling safe. The Iditarod excursions were fantastic, and I loved the places we stayed in Talkeetna and Fairbanks. We saw Denali AND the Northern Lights! Great mix of scheduled time plus free time.

    My guide and my bus driver were both super nice and knowledgeable. I had been waiting for an adventure like this all my life and traveling with collette made the whole thing very seamless. I got to do a lot of things on the tour I never would’ve done if I’d gone on my own. I made a lot of friends and I can’t wait to go on another tour!!

    Didn't get to see Denali or fly over it. Some breakfasts were not up to par. Probably Covid19 effects related. Meal in Anchorage was at a chain restaurant. No obvious local meats served except at forst hotel for breakfast. Gravy with reindeer meat.

    great tour guide; always pleasant, knowledgeable, and ready to assist. When airline cancelled our return flights, through him and Collette we were able to stay in our hotel room for the additional nights we had to stay in Alaska (the hotel was sold out)
