This was our most favorite tour on our Alaska cruise. Was able to get my elderly mother on the raft along with my kids. All 9 of us took this slow gentle river ride, we saw 2 bald eagles on the tree where their nest was, another one was further up the river. This was as scenic as I imagined. A very worthwhile excursion. I highly recommend this one.
