My wife and I had a fantastic time getting a first-hand look around Juneau! James was very friendly and thorough in his descriptions of the city. He took us off the typical tourist trap route and showed us some interesting sights that few get to see. Many times, he would hop off the bike and get really descriptive with the building/statue etc., so that we would really understand why something was the way it was. Being a history teacher, I very much appreciated that!

Although he doesn't have "food" per se, he stops at a lot of local places and gets free samples of the local fare. Delicious!

When the tour is done, he will drop you off wherever you need to be, or tailor the tour so you finish where you started.

You don't need to tip, but you'll probably do it, anyway...

I made reservations way back in Jan. True to his word, James called me back Early June to confirm our Cruise time and when we would arrive, He was waiting for us when we docked. Modern pedicab with comfortable leather seats and cover should it decide to rain. I use a wheel chair so this was the best way for my husband and I to see this historic city. James is a retired Cost Guard Commander and really knows his history and so many unique details about Juneau. He had stories to tell, many statistics, and knows all the "crooks and crannies", which he was eager to share with us. We saw: The USS Juneau Memorial, Alaska Commercial Fisherman's Memorial, Taku Smokeries, The Red Dog Saloon, The Alaskan Hotel, Alaska Fudge Company, mining history, native culture, locals favorite shops and dining, and more. WHAT AN INTERESTING EXPERIENCE! It was so much fun to share Juneau with a really outgoing guy. DON'T MISS THIS ONE!

James H, our driver, personalized our tour to meet our needs. In many cases he told us the story BEHIND the story. We learned so much and it was very interesting and fun. We will do this again the next time we are in Juneau. This is a "DO-NOT-MISS" tour.
