The rainforest walk led by a ranger was very interesting as we learnt about the eco system, the vegetation, the plants and the salmon run and hatchery. It was great to watch a family of otters having fun near the salmon hatchery. The crab feast was marketed as 90 minutes of meal time which should not be confused with the actual time for eating. There was only one wait staff for our group of under 20 people. By the time, the group is seated, drinks ordered and served by the waitress and short demonstration on how best to tackle the crab, the actual eating time is probably 60 minutes or less. We are not used to dipping the crab in melted butter. Good thing we came prepared with a jar of tartare sauce, our preferred condiment for seafood. The crabs were delicious. Highly recommend this tour and Alaska Shore Excursions.

This was also a very informative tour and the crab was delicious!

If you are looking for a tour that is kind of low-key, but totally unique and interesting, then I would highly recommend the Ketchikan Rainforest tour. The place is beautiful. There is a majesty to this place and a history. It is a sacred place and you sense that. Our guide, Danielle was first-rate and first class. Her knowledge of the flora, fauna and animals there was extensive, as was her commentary on the land and geography. I really loved the rainforest tour. Of course, after this tour comes the crab feast. You can trust the other reviewers when they say that the crab is delicious. The crab was delicious. My friend won the honors of eating the most in the room. I could not keep up with him. The service and food were superb. Thank you!

A little boring until we saw mama bear and her cubs which have not been seen all season. The bears helped to gain one more star.

The sanctuary was really cool but the crab was to die for. Go hungry and save some space for the cheesecake!!!!!

The Raptor Sanctuary was a hi-lite along with the Totem Carving and the Crabfeast! Our shuttle driver Peggy was very knowledgeable and it was a pleasure having her transport us to and from our excursion. Our guide on the rainforest walk tried too hard to be funny and missed the mark...
I recommend that he stick to the factual materials.

The Ketchikan Rainforest Sanctuary was a lovely stop during our cruise from Vancouver to Seward. The guide gave us a lot of information about the flora and fauna of the sanctuary and we had plenty of time to amble about and see everything that wanted to, as well as do a little shopping for souvenirs. The crab feast at George Inlet Lodge was very nice- the lodge is down a rather long flight of stairs (there are options available for anyone who is mobility impaired), and our server had a great sense of humor and gave great directions for how to eat crab for those who had never done so. The crab was good and plentiful, and this tour was a great way to spend our day in Ketchikan. We had plenty of time for shopping when we returned before our ship was due to sail.

We apreciated particularly Savanah, our guide with in Rain Forest. Meal was excellent.
Bus driver need more experience to drive backward when required, however he was very prudent and took his time.

The crab feast is legit. Its definitely all you can eat and was delicious. 5 stars on food.
The bus trip over is also easy, fun and informative. 5 stars on travel.
The rain forest tour is lacking. We thought it would be somewhat self guided, "meet us at the end of a trail in an hour" type of hike, but it was more walk with 15 - 20 people, and stop every 20 yards. Less than a mile in total. It was nice just not what we were expecting. 2 out of 5 stars. Wish they had more options for hikers who want to explore on their own.
