Average 5.00 out of 5 stars based on 3 verified reviews from Cool Destinations and TripAdvisor.
our guide Natalie was extremely knowledgeable, and the easy walk through the rainforest was great. Unfortunately the bears weren't there, but the salmon spawning was exciting. The totems and cabins were beautifully carved, much better than I anticipated, all in all a very satisfactory tour.
I was initially hesitant about this tour, but glad my friends convinced me to go. Our tour guide was a teacher, that made this very fun. You could tell she enjoyed her job and was very passionate about sharing the history of the Totem Park and facts about the area. The walk had some strenuous areas, but the sights made it worth it.
