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. We just got to go along for the ride, sure that behind the scenes Guy was making all the magic. Luggage appeared, transportation was there, meals and activities were laid out in a schedule we received every day; all we had to do was show up and enjoy!

But it was more than his superhuman attention to detail and ability to keep the inner workings of a multi-city, multi-faceted trip going like clockwork that made this experience so special. Guy was passionate about the places we visited, and that shone through. An hour long bus ride would fly by as he regaled us with stories about the people and history and natural wonders of the place. I don't know how anyone could maintain such a genuine level of enthusiasm, even for a place as incredible as Alaska, but Guy was as excited to share the wonders of the state as if it were his first time and we were all his friends. And in fact, we felt like friends very quickly. Mealtimes often turned into a but of a friendly tussle among all us travelers to see who would get to sit with Guy.

While there were too many unforgettable moments to count, one in particular will always stand out. We were lucky enough to be in Alaska in time for the northern lights. We all wanted to stay up for them, but needed to get to sleep for a full day ahead, so Guy promised to wait, and call us if it happened. And sure enough, not long after we drifted off, the phone rang. “It's happening! It's happening!” Guy was shouting. It was the aurora! We threw on coats over our pajamas and ran outside to meet Guy and our group. He picked me up to hug me and swing me around, whooping like a kid who just found the best Christmas present ever under the tree. Here we were, a group of 20-some people, all strangers the day before, now hugging and crying and shouting with glee at the miraculous show the sky was putting on.

This was no mere tour director doing his job. This was Guy in his element, sharing the magic that can only be found in travel. This was the real reason the trip will always stand out as one of the most amazing experiences of our lives. We can't wait to travel again with Guy.

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.

We had a great time on the tour. The train ride was gorgeous! The hotels were charming. I loved that both hotels were in the heart of town, walking distance from so many interesting spots. The breakfast buffets at each hotel were good and so convenient!

Beyond the train ride through the Cascade Mountains and traveling through the high desert of Central and Western Washington to Walla Walla, there was an array of wonderful wines and some fine dining on a tour created by Guy and Robin Glaeser.
