Frequently Asked Questions

Absolutely! The tour time has been scheduled to allow for some quick shopping at the retail destinations. We even provide you with a shopping bag to take back your tasty goodies.

Juneau is located in the beautiful Tongass National Forest, which is the largest temperate rainforest in the world. We tend to get quite a bit of rain. This is what makes Juneau and Southeast Alaska so beautiful. Locals refer to the rain as “liquid sunshine.” We encourage guests to wear a lightweight rain jacket because rain or shine, we will dine!

All food, wine pairing, and beer tasting are included. Each tour participant is given a shopping bag with tour information, recipes, and coupons for shopping.

Each tour is designed to provide enough food for a hearty lunch, yet not leave participants so full that they cannot enjoy the rest of their visit in Juneau.

Each cruise line has different rules and regulations about bringing food onboard. Any open containers, agricultural products, and items that are not pre-packaged are generally not allowed. We recommend that you check with your ship for customs policies.

We will try our best to work with your food allergies or restrictions. Seafood and shellfish are served on this tour, as are meats and cheeses. Please let us know in advance if there are any issues or concerns. We can accommodate vegetarian, gluten-free, and lactose intolerant.

Please thank Matt for a wonderful afternoon..he is a great guide. Tour was a great way to start to our visit as we ate at three of the restaurants later and shopped at both food stores. Matt is very low key, but offered great advice on our stay and seemed really interested in what would interest us.

Enjoyed learning a little bit about the town & trying some of the local food, especial the hog wing "the best". Although it would have been just as easy for us to walk off the ship & walk around we wouldn't have learnt as much.
