Juneau offers many incredible wonders. It can be hard to schedule everything you want to see and do in one short trip. And because of that, custom Juneau tours can help you experience the diverse landscape Juneau offers in a day.
And if you aren’t able to hike or get around easily, creating a custom tour can also help you see everything you want to without straining your body or facing limitations with what you can do while in the area.
Another reason to consider a custom tour is if you’re overwhelmed by the options for what you can do. Sometimes visitors who have never been to Juneau simply aren’t sure where to start.
Having a local drive you around the area and talk about its significance and some of the unique characteristics of our great city can be a great introduction to Alaska.
As you plan out your trip to Juneau and look for ways to experience everything you want to in the time you have, here’s a look at why you might consider a custom tour.
