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.

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!

Complete your Northwest Experience

The untamed beauty and diverse appeal of Washington State and the greater Pacific Northwest are often overlooked. Visitors flock instead to explore better-known hubs like Seattle, a city that has long been an exciting draw with its must-sees like Pike Place Market, one of the oldest farmers markets in the US, the Space Needle and of course the coffee shop and music scene. However, many of these travelers, often on their way to and from an Alaska cruise, rarely realize that the dynamic city is just one side of the story. Beyond the attractions of urban life lies a vast landscape of scenic vineyards, mountain towns, river valleys, coastal vistas, ancient forests, volcanoes and pioneer trails, not to mention a world-class wine and foodie scene.

The perfect compliment to an Alaska Tour

InquisiTours - The perfect compliment to an Alaska Cruise from Seattle

If you’ve booked yourself on an Alaska Cruise and your itinerary includes a day trip to Seattle, you’ll probably find on your excursion to the Emerald city that one day is not nearly enough! Home of the Pike Place Market, the Space Needle, and the Puget Sound. Famously framed by the scenic backdrop of Mt. Rainier and the snow-dusted Cascade Mountains, Seattle is alive with culture, history, cuisine, and nature. To be experienced to its fullest, just like fine wine, Seattle and Washington state are most enjoyable when savored.

Visit Washington State like a local!

Pike Place Market, the Seattle Space Needle, and Chihuly Gardens: It seems like all of the fun things to in Washington State are all located in Seattle, but that couldn’t be further than the truth!

In fact, Washington State is a paradox that’s waiting to be opened: on one side, there are the bustling streets of big cities, while on the other are gorgeous turquoise lakes sprinkled with green firs… and everything in between. If you’re planning a trip to Washington state (or even looking for things to do in Seattle before an Alaska cruise), don’t miss seeing the real Washington - and we’re here to show you how!

Comparing Two Northwest Wine Regions

Comparing two northwest wine regions | written by Kevin Max | presented by Alaska Airlines

We wanted to see what happened when we took two cities in the Pacific Northwest connected by Alaska Airlines flights and pursued a common theme across both. Could we comfortably pull off a wine tasting, trail running weekend? In this, the first of a series of City Pairs, we chose two notable wine regions and tasted our way through a three-day, two-state vineyard voyage. Mornings were paired with trails and seclusion. Afternoons were wine and food. The trip was out of the ordinary but in my top five.

Oregon Trail Meets Washington Wines : Group touring offers this traveler a new approach to adventure

Typically not a group traveler, I was intrigued by this concept, and felt it might be a great way to gain a deeper understanding of my new home state. Right after booking the four-night trip, I could already see I was going to enjoy the guided experience. When planning a vacation, my Type A modus operandi is to do extensive research on everything from the perfect place to stay to the best brunch. But that was all done for me, which felt liberating—my only job on this vacation was to enjoy it.

Innovation and Washington State

Innovation, Wine and the State we live in.

Innovation in Washington State has taken on many forms, from airplanes to apples. It normally starts in the brain and finds its way to the fingertips. And sometimes a bottle. In a world before Kale Chips, really smart people have been making delicious treats from the bounty of this amazing state we live in. Washington's wines routinely showcase this ingenuity by receiving more high (90+) scores than the other major US wine producers and even France. If this were Olympics the Evergreen State would lead the medal count.
