Discover Alaska put together an amazing itinerary. Even some of the tours we thought were just fillers turned out to be exceptional.
Accommodations and meals were first class. Everyone involved were knowledgeable, friendly, and professional. You truly made this a trip of a lifetime.

14 Day Cruise Tour
We very much enjoyed our Discover Alaska experience, with some exceptions. I did send our flight information to you, Mr. Cooper, but it was not shown for the return flight for the hotel’s convenience.

Yes, Alaska is beautiful. We are glad we went when we did. We saw so much, saw so many snow-capped mountains,etc.,etc. and it felt like Alaska should that time of the year as we were told by the natives. The hotels, shows and tours were fine. Our land-tour director, Kelly Walker, is excellent! Very informative, very concerned for each person in our group, and a lot of fun!!

I just wanted to thank you and the Discover Alaska team for helping us plan our recent Alaska Adventure. Absolutely every single detail was handled beautifully. Our journey hosts both onboard and on land were outstanding. My husband and I have already recommend Discover Alaska and Holland America to several friends/family.

14 Day Cruise Tour

Hello Discover Alaska,

My wife Iris and I (Ivan) arrived back at our home in Baltimore on Friday after our FABULOUS 15-day Double Denali tour with Discover Alaska (trip beginning on May 16th). Both Iris and I want to thank you and everyone associated with Discover Alaska for giving us one of the best travel experiences of our lives. The entire trip was well organized from the time we were met in Vancouver; dropped off at our ship; met by our guide in Seward at the end of the cruise; and escorted through Anchorage, Denali, and Fairbanks. All the tours and shows provided by Discover Alaska during the cruise and land portion of the trip were excellent and exceeded our expectations. The hotels were first class and the food provided all through the tour was wonderful. We especially enjoyed using the provided meal vouchers at Denali’s McKinley Chalet and the Fairbanks Westmark Hotel where we could use them for anything on the menus at any of the multiple restaurants on the facilities.

We also want to thank Discover Alaska for the excellent service provided to us by everyone throughout the entire tour to include transporting us between locations and taking care of our luggage. There were no mishaps or surprises during the entire trip, everything went smoothly, and we were well taken care of.

Finally, special thanks to Hillary St Clair, our guide and traveling companion from Seward to our last day at Fairbanks. Hillary was magnificent in every way. She was extremely knowledgeable and informative at every location, took care of the needs and desires of everyone in our group, and was always available to aid us and answer our questions and concerns.

Thank you again. It was a wonderful trip and a wonderful experience. We will definitely recommend Discovery Alaska to anyone who thinks about visiting our magnificent 49th state.

14 Day Cruise Tour
THANK YOU!!! This was the trip of a lifetime. The best trip I’ve ever taken in my life. I’ve shared stories with many of my friends including those that wern’t friends before, but are now.

You all provided us with spot on pre cruise planning. Judith, the on-ship tour guide, kept us fully informed and we even had an angel, Kate Hawley, for our land portion of the trip. Actually she was everyone’s angel. So very, very helpful. She hails from Santa Barbara and acts as tour guide 4 months out of year. The remainder of her time is spent working on her disertation as a clinical psychologist.

I saw moose, caribou, sea lions, whales, dall sheep, and bears multiple times. One of the bear excursions was up close and personal (like 50’).

Traveled by motorcoach, cruise ship, train w/done car, float plane, mule, river boat and tons of walking.

Food was awesome. Don’t think it was possible to be hungry. Nevertheless, I ate very well and lost 2 pounds.

I’ll write again when I get a chance.

Thank you so very much. I’ve already started thinking what will I do next year? Who can I get to travel with me?

My best to everyone,


14 Day Cruise Tour

Phil... Thanks so much for the photos. Our Alaska trip has been the best experience that we have enjoyed in our retirement! When you took the time to locate my “lost” camera that I left on the bus, we were so appreciative of your efforts and, of course, thrilled to get the camera. These photos that you have shared with us complete the record of out trip and they are so much better than the ones I took!

Because of people like you and our total experience on the trip, we have recommended Discover Alaska to our friends and will continue to do so.

Thanks so much

Hi Discover Alaska!

gary owenThis note is way, way, way overdue! So sorry! Out trip to Alaska (May 29-June 11. 2013) was absolutely amazing! While we were on the land portion of the trip our tour guide was Lori Butler.. She was the best of the best! One amazingly friendly, knowledgeable, energetic, organized and caring person. We ;over her! It was a sad day when we had to leave her, but the rest of the trip was amazing! our very first cruise!

I have spent the last 10 month making two huge scrapbooks... one of the land, the other of the cruise. Sooooo many pictures! So, much fun to relive over and over again!
Thanks so much for putting it all together for us.

If Lori is still working for you, please tell her the group from Michigan talks about her often.. in fact we’re going to have a “post Alaska” party very soon so that we can all look at everyone’s scrapbook! (e had 5 couples on the trip!) And, we enjoyed the cruise so much that we are in the process of taking another cruise together on Holland America Lines! This one on the east coast from Quebec City to Boston!

So... Thank again, you’ve opened our world up to some fantastic sights!

Dear Bob,

THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! It was truly a trip of a lifetime and your organization was wonderful the whole way. It made the whole trip worry free and allowed us to just focus on the beauty and experiences in Alaska. We have recommended Discover Alaska to anyone and everyone who has shown any interest in our trip or in going to Alaska.



14 Day Cruise Tour
Thank you, for your assistance, for a wonderful trip to Alaska Departing August 3 from Vancouver BC. We enjoyed everything and especially your tour guides. The food was generally excellent and the few bobbles made the experience special. Unfortunately, our helicopter trip to the Mendehall glacier was cancelled due to fog and mist but we had a great time at the Red Dog Saloon and the Red Onion.

We have passed on your Alaska adventure video to our friends who are planning a trip.

Your operation is top shelf!

The best to ‘you all’ for our trip of a lifetime to Alaska.

14 Day Cruise Tour
Just wanted Discover Alaska to know that we had a great time in Alaska, was a terrific trip, and recommended it to my friend.
We had perfect weather. All our guides said how lucky we were and the captain said the ship never got closer to the Hubbard Glacier than when we were on it. I loved all the side tours and the stateroom attendant, dining room waiters, and all the staff who performed fantastic shows for us. I would recommend this tour to anyone and will. I am convinced there isn’t a better Alaskan tour out there.

Thanks so much. Diana and Roy Brubaker
