|A most enjoyable & well-planned itinerary with a wide range of activities. The destinations were varied & interesting from glaciers to coastal towns. Our guide Wendy was superb - what a fountain of knowledge, experience & enthusiasm! Loved seeing where she lived and gaining a small insight to life in rural Alaska. Highlights of the trip were Halibut Cove, the NW glacier & viewing bears at Brooks Falls. As usual on Graeme's trips the company was very congenial."

|Our heartfelt thanks to Graeme and Wendy for organising and so ably leading our group on hikes into such stupendously vast and pristine terrains which make up the great State of Alaska. We had enjoyed two previous visits to our northern neighbours, but this gave us an entirely different perspective. Booking: Our NZ friends had recommended this company to us, having done several hikes in the past. Trish in the office took our on-line booking, let us know when deposits and full payment were required, and kept us updated on any changes. The Hike: it was our first ever hike, and although seniors, we are extremely physically fit and active long-distance cyclists/walkers. On reading the 'grading' of hikes in brochure, we felt confident we could manage the at times mountainous, rocky terrain. This proved to be correct. The choice of hikes was varied..." Read more

|Alaska was a great destination. Wendy's extensive knowledge, love for the country and her determination that we should have a good time, ensured that we had a wonderful trip. We came away feeling as though we had a taste of not just the physical beauty of Alaska, but also a glimpse of what it was like to live there."

|This was our 4th Walkabout tour and was very good. Alaska is scenically spectacular and the wildlife is unique and interesting. We were a compatible group of seven in one van and a large part of the success of this trip was our guide Wendy. She is not only very well informed about Alaska, but was professional and diligent at all times. Her local expert knowledge on everything from the glaciers themselves, the localities and the sled dogs etc, complemented her excellent communication skills. Regarding some of the details, the localities and accommodations were all excellent but we expected to do a bit more walking, especially early in the tour. The weather did not always help this as the wet could have made it somewhat muddy. For the planning though, perhaps more walks would be good. We had some good meals, though we also had a couple of very average ones. We felt that we should have been able to have more choice of meals and not fixed menus at most places. Even a choice of 2 or 3 mains would have been helpful at times. So, overall a really good Walkabout tour which we would recommend to our friends."

|Alaska was great in every respect - I particularly enjoyed the company of our guide, Wendy. Graeme did his usual excellent job. I liked the variety in the tour - walking on the glacier, the dog mushing and the helicopter excursion to see the bears."
Dianne from Roseville, NSW Australia 
|Wendy with her local knowledge and experience was essential to the success of the walking holiday. Graeme gave great leadership and support to us all. The tour was well planned and gave us a good understanding of Alaska and its inhabitants and wildlife. The accommodation was very good and better than I expected. The food in general was only fair and perhaps twice it could have been called Gourmet. The two highlights were NW fjord tour from Seward and the Bear viewing with Ultimate Safaris from Homer. Lastly, we were fortunate in that all of the people on the tour were interesting and agreeable."
