Where to find the best rates 2015

Family trip - need help with itinerary and booking

Land tour - 3-6 days offered, how many days really needed, don't want to spend a fortune.

Is there more to see starting from Anchorage or Fairbanks?

We plan to do land tour 1st then cruise south.

Which cruise-line has the best packages and is the most organized?

Lastly best time to book for best pricing and through an agency or direct?

Any suggestions let me know.

Can't help with your cruise, but there is lots of information under our Top questions for that.

It is generally always cheaper to do your own land tour . . . rent your car about 11 months ahead for the best rate on that - and make is as long as you can. Same with your lodging - research now and book early for the nicest/more affordable accommodations.

Usually cheaper to fly into Anchorage, but you will only know when you do your research.

How many in your family? Ages? Interests? We are happy to help you plan . . . but details would be nice. :)
