Description

Though we think we know a lot about Alaska, the truth is most of us are really unaware of the real journey into both the ancient and living history of these people. This excursion naturally begins with a visit to the original Anchorage townsite, on to the monument to the great quake of 1964 to see some of the remaining damage, and then to the outskirts of town to see the busiest private seaplane base in the world.

Close by is the Alaska Native Heritage Center, where your personal guide will accompany you on the journey through the center. This wonderful display of the heritage of the Alaskan people has a village of authentic and traditional structures gathered from the many native cultures here. Along with the information you receive from your guide, you will watch native dancing led by a local dance group OR athletes demonstrating World Eskimo-Indian Olympic Games skills. One or the other will be there to enhance your visit!

You will have plenty of time to explore the exhibits that will take you back in time, collected from the local families and towns around the state. A beautiful gift shop with arts and crafts from local artisans is known as the best in Anchorage so don't think you will see these items elsewhere.

You have two choices of how to end this tour. You can depart with your tour guide for a drop off where you started the tour. You can use the free Heritage Center shuttle back to downtown if you wish to stay longer.

In Cozumel we enjoyed the snorkeling that we did off a catamaran. The staff was friendly, very professional, and helpful with my first time snorkeling daughter. Grand Cayman we went to sting ray city with a trip and snorkeling. Staff and trip was amazing, crew very helpful and fun. in Jamaica we did a Dunn's River Falls excursion and private beach. We had fun but were not impressed with the staff, and their timeliness (waited around alot),

Traveling into Russia can be nerve-wracking (and getting more so every day) -- but ShoreTrips made it easy by providing all of the paperwork and instructions, as well as organizing good guides.
