Travel agent who really knows Alaska?

Does anyone know a travel agent in the US who really knows Alaska? Would love to contact a travel agent who does. Thanks!

You don't need a travel agent.......you will get plenty of help from the volunteers on this forum......many have traveled to Alaska many times, and many are locals who travel the state as well.......

Read through the First Time Posters which is the first post on the Alaskan forums to give you an idea of where to start......

Really why would you pay a complete stranger to decide what they think you would enjoy for your vacation ???.....Well, I guess you wouldn't pay them directly, but whoever they book you with will pay them a commission......and sometimes those choices may not be best for you and your group......

You have - right here! You simply cannot find a travel agent who has what we have - a combination of frequent travelers to the state as well as long time residents as mombear shared. :)

I'm not sure if there are any travel agents that specialize in Alaska travel, as it isn't really worthwhile (for the meager commisions they receive). And, why anyway, as we all give free advice.

One thing that perhaps we forgot to share, but Alaska travel planning is actually very simple - it isn't nearly as complicated as some places, so that really helps. :)
