Default Alaska Shore Excursions

Hi,

We're crusing on Princess next summer and considering the following shore excurions. Can anyone comment on them?
(just for information, we're looking for exercise, great scenery, and trying not to blow our whole budget)

Juneau - Guide's Choice Adventure Hike or
Lake Canoe Adventure
(can't afford Helicopter Glacier Hike)

Ketchikan - Saxman Native Villiage Tour and/or Orca Beach Nature Hike or Mountain Lake Canoeing

White Pass Railway HeliHike
(yes expensive, but sounds awesome. Is it worth being our blow-out tour?)

Thanks for any input!

Rachel

Here are the tours we took when we sailed on the Sea Princess from Seward to Vancouver in July 99:

SKAGWAY Historic Skagway/Days of 98
(Hear the story of Soapy Smith and Co. This was just OK)

Eagle Nature Tour
(Flight to Haines then bus up the Chilkat river to see
eagles and other wildlife. We really enjoyed this trip
including the flight back over the glaciers.)

JUNEAU Mendenhall Glacier Tour
(Helicopter to top. Only about 20 minutes on the glacier.)

Wildlife Sightseeing Cruise
(Bus to Catamaran boat at Auki Bay. 4 hour trip up the
inlet around many islands. Views of eagles, otters, sea
lions and of course whales. The best tour we took.)

KETCHIKAN Saxman Native Village Tour
(Bus to Saxman village. Tour and history were ok.)

Hope this helps your decisions.
