I often have clients say to me, “I’d love to visit Alaska, but I don’t like boats.” As the conversation progresses, I then realize that because of the over-marketing of cruise ships, many clients don’t realize that there are other ways to visit Alaska! In this article, we’ll discuss cruises, land tours, cruisetours, rail, and self-drive trips to Alaska.
I have a long time client, who trusts my travel style, who emailed me and asked for trip ideas. Here were the parameters: something reasonable from the Pittsburgh area (no 12 hour flights, but plane rides are still acceptable); something a little unusual (“I don’t want a three day cruise to the Bahamas”); and must expose his family to new cultures and sightseeing.
Here are some fabulous suggestions I came up with. What do you think?
