Another well run travel trip by Green Edventures!! The weather was beautiful and scenery was even better. Tara and our guide Jeanne had a quick solution whenever a problem came up. As usual I always felt safe and had a great time with the other women in the group who enjoy traveling! :)

This was an amazing experience for my son Gregory, he truly had the best time. The whole process to book was effortless and very organized,. The trip was beautiful, so much to see and learned. My son enjoyed his accommodations, he said the food was delicious and the activities engaging and fun. He loved swimming with the sharks. Our leader Mrs. Lowe is very professional, caring and attentive to every detail. We were so lucky to have Mrs. Lowe as our leader, she knows best! This is a lifetime experience!

Tara and Jeannie were amazing! This was an epic and well-planned trip. The food was excellent, and I loved that all the details were taken care of. I would recommend this trip to any woman who wants to travel to Alaska solo (or with a friend!) and wants to see the beauty of the Alaskan wilderness.

I just returned from the Wisconsin Women's Tour and couldn't have asked for a better trip! For me, the amount and type of activity were perfect. Who know there was so much to discover practically in my own backyard?
