I took this tour with my husband and two kids (ages 3 and 9 months) and we had a blast! Kaycee (our musher) was super friendly and we loved meeting the dogs, the sled ride and cuddling the puppies!

This adventure was by far the best excursion we did during our Alaska cruise! Great musher with explanations of the dogs and how they are trained. Glad I choose this one!
