“Well planned and stressless holiday”
- QLD, Australia May 2017 2 Helpful Votes

Holland American Line's cruise to Alaska was outstanding. Glad we chose the on land excursions through them as it was hassle free and seamless. Trafalgar was well organised and the hotels outstanding in both location and comfort. The early morning starts were great as we often gained access to sites before the main tourist crowds came.
Only downside was we were not aware of the very large group size they Trafalgar run in USA and Canada. Did not expect a group of 52!...read more

The scenery on this tour was spectacular. The entire tour was perfect. Everyday just got better and better. Trees, rocks and water. Fantastic.

“Tour Director and Driver were excellent and very experienced”
- WA, Australia Sep 2015 1 Helpful Vote

Tour Director and Driver were excellent and very experienced. They had a good knowledge of the area. The tour was well organised, and there were adequate comfort stops. There was a good range of optional extras, though we only chose to do two, which were both great. The included meals were all of a good standard.
