Dolly Varden is a third party trip planner. What is included in the $99 package offered to you by DV?

sea turtle

they pick you up at the dock. it is the cheechako special


juneo-- mendenhall glacier historic site

skagway--white pass summit tour

ketchikan--- saxmen totem village/ city tour

i have seen on the boards though that there are ''blue buses'' that can take you too the glacier in juneo for $10. so i dont know if that is a good deal for that or not. also now that i think about it i have done the white pass summit tour. my friend hasnt though and i dont think seeing it twice would hurt since it is so pretty there and this price is cheaper for that tour. i really do want to see the village this time with all the totem poles. i didnt see that last sept and i want too this time. i still have plenty of time to figure out what tours we will do. she has kind of put me in charge of all the planning so i want to make sure she will see things for the first time herself. im trying to talk her into going on a whale tour. i will keep pushing for that. let me know what you think of this tour. do you think it would be worth it or not??

Frankly- if there is a more active tour you wish to consider for yourself, I would split up. But - no I don't think your package is a good deal for $99. As mentioned there are shuttle buses to Mendenhall Glacier for $10 round trip- + $3 admission to the visitor center. If you want a Mendenhall TOUR bus with added sites and commentary- it is around $20 with admission included. Saxman tours are numerous from the visit center in the $25 pp range. Pick one up when you get there to make better use of your time. Same for the White Pass Summit buses- around $30 at the dock.

karen

after checking more closely i see you are right. i want to do different things this time so i have lots of options to choose from. my friend who is going with me ( her first cruise and never been to alaska ) cannot do alot of hiking and things. that is why i will be doing more relaxed tours this time. i will still have plenty of tours to pick from and lots of time to decide. thanks dusty
