While we didn't see any wildlife from a close distance (could see otters per the guide from about a mile or two away), there were still great views. The guide took us to a few spots where we saw signs of animals from footprints to...More

They promised us a luxury Land Rover, but my husband and I were squeezed to the back of the car, with a loud irritating noise of the air conditioning and couldn’t hear anything that was being explained. Worse, the guide didn’t seem to worry even...More

This experience started ok, they were polite and seemed very professional, however things quickly changed. The tour is sold as bear viewing whilst being transported in luxury land-rover with the brochure filled with images of amazing landscapes. We saw no bears, this is fair enough...More

Loved the tour. Loved how they pick you up at the Hotel. Saw one female bear. We were about 15 feet away. And named the rock it was sitting on (bear rock). Then we saw a deer family. Would defiantly recommend this tour to everyone....More

Smokey day and bears don't like smoke.... but, super-informative professional educator guide made it very worthwhile. Learned a lot and saw a bear - a yearling - which was very cool. Strongly recommended, but remember: this isn't a zoo and these are not performing animals...
