“ Recommended” means you’re dealing with quality hotel or tour you can trust—a company in the top 10% of all Alaska tourism companies.

Most Alaska tourism companies strive to offer visitors the best. But some have earned special status in our books because:

  • They’re the best in their area and have been written up in national magazines or on TV
  • They’ve been in business for years, get consistently favorable reviews on guest comment cards, and are used by the top luxury travel operators
  • Their well-established reputation attracts the best employees, and they follow that up by investing heavily in their equipment and employee training
  • They offer value
  • If you do encounter a problem, they’ll go out of their way to make it right
