Escorted or Independent?

Choose an escorted land tour if you:

Value the interpretation and history offered by guides

Like having the concierge services of a tour director

Want someone else to carry your bags and worry about meal details

Are comfortable traveling on a schedule

Enjoy the camaraderie and social opportunities of group travel

Choose an independent land tour if you:

Want the value and planning support you get with a package tour—yet want the flexibility of independent travel

Prefer to choose your destinations, length of stay, and style of lodging

Relish traveling at your own pace

Want more opportunities to meet local Alaskans and get off the beaten path

Want to maximize your adventure quotient
