Beginning to plan for a trip to Alaska in 2015 to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary. Am looking for opinions on whether to go it alone or join a caravan. Also, if the answer is caravan, opinions on Fantasy tours vs Adventure Caravans.

We went on the 60 day Fantasy caravan tour this summer -   greatly exceeded all our expectations !!  Both the Wagon Master and Tail Gunner went above and beyond all our expectations -   In my opinion, the only way to enjoy AK and western Canada is by caravan -  not only do you enjoy tours you may not do by yourselves, but as an added bonus, you now have close friends you didn't have at the beginning of the trip -  Send me a PM for more details if you  want -  can't say enought about Fantasy !!

 

Money and time well spent !!

We went with one other couple and had a very good experience.  We could travel at our own pace and spend as much time as we wanted seeing or doing what we wanted.  If I do it again I would do it the same way.

We have been several times and have always did it on our own. This way, you can do it at your own leisure. It will be an awesome trip! If you are doing a cruise also, spend a little extra to get a balcony room.

We traveled to Alaska on a 60 day caravan with Adventure Caravans in 2012.  The trip far exceeded our expectations. The itinerary allowed enough free time so that we could do what we wanted.  The pace was just right.  We saw many attractions that I would not have stopped for if we traveled by ourselves. We made lasting friendships that were a bonus. Likely we will travel by caravan again in the near futue. I hope that this helps!
