15 members of our family enjoyed an alaskan cruise june 2015. we especially enjoyed our whale watching excursion in juneau. juneau shore tours were amazing. the staff was very friendly and helpful in fact the boat captain even invited my 12 yr old grand son into the cabin when he heard how afraid of boats he was. it was such a treat for him. the whales were splendid and exceeded our expectations. the staff were very knowledgeable and answered all of the boys questions. we especially appreciated the bus driver suggesting some local places for meals, drinks etc. juneau shore tours was quite a bit cheaper than the cruise excursions and just made our visit to juneau very special.
