Frequently Asked Questions

Most of our guests have LOTS of questions. We love answering all of them. For any other questions you may have, please contact us directly.

If exclusivity is important to you and your guests, please let us know at the time of your initial request. Then we can provide additional information and options to enhance your customized itinerary so that it is private as possible. In some cases, because of Alaska’s unique transportation infrastructure and limited access to some of our natural attractions, some of the excursions included in our custom tours will be shared with other visitors.  But we will make sure you understand these few cases and can provide other, similar experiences to maximize exclusivity as much as possible.


Specific payment terms will vary depending on the services included with your custom tour. Please refer to our Terms & Conditions for additional information. Remote lodges, charter flights, and buyout options have stricter terms and this information will be provided along with our initial quote for your private Alaska trip.


The quoted price for your Alaska customized itinerary will vary based on your timeframe for travel, number of guests, activity choices, accommodations etc. In general, a customized, exclusive luxury tour with private transport and other individualized options can be anywhere from 20% to 200% more than a standardized, scheduled group package.

Is it worth the splurge? Absolutely. The extra value you receive from adjusting your itinerary to your specific interests and requirements will provide you with a once-in-a-lifetime experience in Alaska, done your way, at your pace. And without having to deal with the crowds, you will experience more, learn more, and enjoy more of the many treasures that Alaska has to offer.


No, Alaska Private Touring does not offer a breakdown of individual prices. We leverage our purchasing power to get you the absolute best value for your selected itinerary.


Yes, all applicable taxes and park fees are included in each custom tour proposal that we prepare.


Since each of our private tours are customized on a case-by-case basis, we can certainly include meals based on your group’s size and budget. We will also always ensure that any special dietary needs or options that you require are communicated to our travel partners for menu planning.


Unless specifically requested or required by our travel partners, gratuities are not included in our custom proposals, as we believe gratuities should be left to the discretion of the guests based on their specific travel experience. If not included, specific guidelines for the various service providers will be provided along with our final travel documentation.
