I definitely recommend Gondwana Ecotours to everyone! Our Alaska trip was well organized, fun, flexible and balanced. Not to mention Jared was a great guide and also an awesome guy! He really cares about the mission of Gondwana Ecotours and it was great to be a part of it. Can’t wait to go on another trip!
