Hi all, We just came back from Europe, and with the help from the people on Tripadvisor, my husband and I had a great time and even came back with extra money that we had taken. We took local buses, trains, and shared taxis. We copied tours from books and did everything we wanted and more, indepently.
Now we are going on a Cruise to Alaska in July.
1. Ketchikan (7 am - 4 pm)
2. Tracy Arm (only 4 hours, 6am-10am)
3. Juneau (2pm-10pm)
4. Victoria (5pm - midnight)Weird time to visit.
5. Skagway (6am - 5pm)
We are going with some friends, about 10 of us all retired, but in good shape to walk and see the sights.
Since our times are limited and we have strange hours, my husband and I would like to catch some kind of inexpensive transportation and see as much as we can at these ports, and perhaps do some walking. We will not be going together on most of these excursions, since everyone has different interests. But perhaps we will on one or two of the ports.
Whale watching was a consideration. But worried about the weather and the cost, and the time it would take.
Also the White Pass train ride in Ketchikan, I believe.
Any help we could get is really appreciated, since we leave next month. Cost is definitely a factor since we just got back, so we are hoping for any tips you may have.
Thanks again for your help! GoJustin
