I had the chance to travel with Guy on a dream trip through Alaska. And while the trip was chock full of once in a lifetime experiences (Glacier landing! Bear sightings! Northern lights!), having Guy as our tour leader just took it off the charts. From the time we landed my husband and I didn't have to give a single thought to details of the trip.

What sticks out most to me about traveling with Guy is how fun and joyfully silly yet astonishingly informative he makes traveling. Between the smiles and laughter, jokes, funny stories and witty observations about the local environment and culture, Guy weaves in the type of interesting, insider knowledge and fascinating historical background that make traveling with a top-tier guide so worthwhile.
