We visited Ketchikan during a cruise and Norman and the tour were a huge part of what made this one of our favorite ports of call!! We had a city/wilderness/Totem tour in which we were fortunate to see a black bear 🐻 fishing for some...More

Have found that booking excursion tours off of cruise ships has generally been good and a lot cheaper. Booking with Sourdough Tours and having Ray as our guide was another confirmation that it was a good idea. Ray, who is an older gentleman, is a...More

We arrived in Ketchikan via Emerald Princess June 2017. We did not book an excursion through the cruise ship because of costs. When you get off the ship, there are kiosks with friendly people offering local tours at half price from the ship. We chose...More

Tammy, our guide, was fantastic. She knows the area well and has a great sense of humor. It was not a great day for wildlife. We did see lots of bald eagles. We learned a lot about living in Ketchikan and the three native groups...More

First let me say that our guide Norman was great a little dry in the personality but he had so much knowledge. He was a native and filled in a whole lot of bits and pieces of the Indian side of life in Alaska. They...More

Our guide Ken was friendly and Informative. Seemed to really love and appreciate this area and his heritage as a native. We saw bald eagles and brown bear while out with him as well as totem poles and the town of Ketchikan. Ken made us...More

Our guide was quite the entertainer! That was about it. He stopped at an overlook for photos, but there was nothing to photograph. Many of us just thought he wanted a 10-minute smoke break for himself. He stopped the shuttle and hollered repeatedly, "Willie. Willie."...More
