Guests will enjoy taking part in a bit of local history and culture while they enjoy this guided tour with sights to see downtown Ketchikan, City Park, Ketchikan Creek Street, and the infamous Married Man's Trail on the way to Saxman Native Village.
The adventure begins with a guided walk and trolley tour through the historic Creek Street. One of the highlights of this trip is a quick photo stop at the Saxman Native Village. Be sure to check out their Stately totems and browse through the local gift shop. Marvel at the massive totem poles which all tell an important story about the trials and tribulations of southeast Alaskan Natives.

You have the opportunity to walk around and explore the area on your own before you head back to the ship. If you prefer not to get off at Creek Street the Trolley will return you to the pier.

If you're interested in spending any amount of time at the Saxman Native Village I would make different arrangements. There was no "guided walk" through historic Creek Street.

We were lucky enough to be the only 2 people on this particular trip and so and the undivided attention of our guide/driver. He was very knowledgeable and provided loads of information of interest throughout the trip. We had a tour around the town and a visit to the totem pole village both of which were fascinating.

The only place of real interest was the totem pole carving. The rest of the tour was a quick drive through neighborhoods on a rather uncomfortable vehicle.

Driver knows the town and very patience to answer questions.
