    Good morning, Samantha! Thank you for your fun comments about your Salmon Berry Tour to the Wildlife Conservation Center. The drive along the Seward Highway is stunning. It was the first National Scenic Byway designation in Alaska and definitely lives up to the hype! As does, the Conservation Center. Being able to watch the myriad of Alaska's wildlife in a sanctuary setting is special. We take great pride in our tour guides. They are knowledgeable, enthusiastic, friendly and always enjoy sharing all aspects of the 49th State with our guests.. You were definitely in capable hands!! Again, many thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts with the Salmon Berry team. Should you consider a return visit during our gorgeous winter season..........we would be honored to assist with your planning and arrangements. Make it a great day!!!

    Robbie was the greatest tour guide. He went above and beyond to make sure we saw the most wildlife we could. He stopped numerous times for photo ops. He gave us a lot of history of the area, along with great pictures to illustrate.

    Good morning, Marjorie! Thanks very much for the great comments about your tour at the Wildlife Conservation Center!! The Seward Highway from Anchorage along Turnagain Arm was the first road in Alaska to receive a National Scenic Byway Designation! It is truly stunning with beautiful scenery. And, then to spend time at the AWCC........it is among our most popular tours; 200 acres of free-roaming Alaska wildlife. We are thrilled you had a memorable time!! Robbie is a great guide and a long time Alaskan. Knowledgeable, friendly and enthusiastic. He thoroughly enjoys sharing all aspects of the 49th State. Glad you had him leading your tour. Thanks again for sharing your experience with us. Should you consider a return to Alaska during our gorgeous winter season, we would be honored to assist with planning an itinerary! Dog sledding, Aurora viewing and many unique activities are available for your adventure!! Make it a great day!!
