Alaska Escorted Tours
Are you looking to travel Alaska with an expert guide? An Alaska escorted tour may be just the ticket. Escorted tour passengers generally travel with a group of 25 to 40 or so fellow passengers led by an experienced tour leader, often called a tour director, tour manager or tour escort. Your guide will take care of most of the details of your Alaska vacation - checking you into hotels, suggesting restaurants and arranging optional tours. Travel is generally by exclusive motorcoach and Alaska railroad. All accommodations, transportation, most tours, and many meals are included.
At Alaska Tour & Travel we are pleased to offer both self-guided as well as escorted tour packages.
Self-guided tours are a great choice for those independent travelers who don’t necessarily want to travel with a guide, or with the same group of travelers, and don’t mind taking on a few more of the trip details themselves. Self-guided trips generally offer more flexibility since each tour package can be customized and can depart on a day of your choosing.
Escorted tours are a great choice for those who want an experienced guide available to answer questions and look after trip details. Many of our guests that choose escorted tours like the idea of getting to know the same group of fellow travelers over the course of their tour. Our escorted tour packages are provided in partnership with a local Alaska company who specializes exclusively in operating Alaska escorted tour programs. We only offer “guaranteed departures”, which means you don’t need to worry about a tour departure being cancelled due to low sales, a common problem with other escorted tour providers.
