Description

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

This is a truly personal and informative way to see the sights, starting when you meet your local guide and take your seat aboard a spacious, modern minibus. Embark on a journey off the beaten path past the State Capitol Building and Russian Orthodox Church. Navigating these charming streets, you will observe Alaskan life up close before moving on to view and photograph Juneau's most popular attraction, the magnificent Mendenhall Glacier. Enjoy views of this breathtaking, natural phenomenon from Brotherhood Bridge, the most classic photo point in Juneau.

Then it's time to journey north to the Shrine of St. Therese. Here you will be able to explore the historic stone chapel and serene waterfront grounds.

Continue further "out the road" to enjoy a scenic and secluded piece of Alaska at either the Eagle Beach Recreation Area or Ernest Gruening State Historical Site. Take in the spectacular Chilkat mountain range while enjoying a light snack and beach walk.

On your return to town, your final stop of the day will be the award-winning Alaskan Brewing Company, to sample some of their most delicious beers.
