Although it was a wet day we had the most interesting day with our tour guide who was passionate about his native American peoples' history. Potlatch Park was amazing with great commentary. He went above and beyond to ensure wildlife sightings. We saw whales, bald eagles, kingfishers but sadly no bears.

This was an enjoyable excursion learning about history and earlier ways of life. Lots of good scenery and views of salmon and bald eagle.

The tour guide is what made this trip successful. She was very knowledgeable about the community and told us the stories of the totems. She also provided us with much information the Tlingit natives in the area. The site is not a live village but contains representative totems, a lodge house, and a tiny antique car museum. Fun

Our family of 9 from 76 years old to 7 years old really enjoyed this trip. We spent the majority of the time in Potlatch Park, however, and I think we needed to split the time more evenly between the two locations.

This tour was the worst out of all the tours we had in Alaska. My husband references this tour as the abandoned kids camp. There was no actual native people that we saw throughout the whole tour and it was run down.Don't waste your money. The only highlight was our guide she was very nice.

We were the only folks on the tour, so it felt quite special. We had a lot of personal time with him as he talked about the carvings and the history. Walking through the village was at our own pace and we got a lot of pictures.
