Perfect Alaska Itinerary

By: Jeff52


Reviewed on: 02 Sep 2014

Entrée Alaska put together the perfect week long Alaska trip for my brother and me. Everything was taken care of and it was a stress free experience. Each activity was exactly what we wanted to do and perfectly planned out. I still can’t believe we got to see Denali national park, fish for silver salmon, hike on a tundra, race Iditarod dogs, and have a helicopter tour of Prince William Sound all in six days. When our kayaking tour had to be cancelled last minute by a supplier, because of dangerous glacier conditions, we were contacted immediately. Entrée Alaska booked the helicopter tour for us in replacement, and it ended up being our favorite activity of the trip. Look no further when trying to decide how to put together a great Alaska vacation.

Great Trip Coordination

Entree Alaska handled the middle part of a 3 week adventure we just returned from. They handled transferring us from our cruise ship to Winterlake Lodge, then on to Redoubt Bay Lodge, and finally back to Anchorage for our flight out of Alaska. Everything came together very smoothly, we very much appreciated how they made it all so easy!

Entree Destinations

Reviewed on: 11 Oct 2017

We booked 6 excursions for a family of 9 at considerable expense. We were told we would have to supply our own car seat for one operator which was very inconvenient No one at Entree or Coastline we’re able to do anything to remediate this. Our excursions were wonderful except for Gastineau Guiding and I would not recommend . The guide was not interesting and they told us a car seat was not required in Alaska.

We had a great experience with Entree. They were very approachable as we designed the trip, answering all questions quickly and completely. They prepared very complete travel documents which ensured that we were prepared. And, they were in touch with the various service providers along the way to make sure our trip went smoothly and answered my questions quickly when they arose during the trip.

Trip to Canada

By: Jim


Reviewed on: 30 Aug 2017

Our experience with Entree Canada was excellent. All of the drivers and cars were very good and the recommended guides were knowledgeable and helpful. They scheduled us on Via Rail Canada from Montreal to Quebec City and the attendants were extremely nice and helpful as were the lady porters. One of our traveling companions lost a hearing aid while on the train and didn't discover it until we reached the hotel, Auberge St. Antoine, who called immediately. The train had departed. Miraculously, the next day Via Rail brought the hearing aid to the hotel. That is really good service. Use Entree Canada if you travel to Canada.

Entree Canada was great. There was a contact at the airport waiting for us to help get the trip started on the right foot. We loved all the guides they recommended for us - they fun and knowledgable, and took us to places both on and off the beaten path. Entree checked in with us during the trip as well to make sure that everything was running smoothly which was a nice touch.

Entree Canada was a great partner with our travel agent to make our Honeymoon a trip we will never forget. In each leg of our trip, we felt like we were being taken care of and that they would only provide us the best. The seamless travel experience made for some exceptional first few days as a married couple and thankful for all they did to help us make those memories.
