Can we shop on the tour?

What if it is raining?
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!
What is included in the tour?
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.
OK, so food is included. How much food?
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.
I am visiting by cruise ship. Am I allowed to take food purchases back onboard the cruise ship?
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.
What about food allergies?
We will try our best to work within 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.
Is alcohol served on the tour?
Yes. One tasting has a wine pairing and our final tasting will be locally brewed beer. For our guests ages 12-20, we will have iced tea or a soft drink available.
Is the tour wheelchair accessible?
Juneau is a mountainside city and our tour includes traversing some inclined streets, as well as some stairs. We encourage participants to gauge their own abilities as to whether these issues will be barriers.
Do you offer any discounts or promotions?
We offer the local wholesale rates for all of our tours because we feel that everyone should get the same lowest price possible regardless of how many excursions you book. No tricks, no gimmicks, no hidden fees.
Do you offer tours for large groups?
Definitely, arrangements of tours for groups or large families are possible. Please contact us with your group requirements.
Can multiple families book this tour and be together?
