At the end of every summer travel season we ask our guests to rate and review the lodging, transportation, and excursions they partook in during their time in Alaska. This ensures that we're always offering the best experiences to future guests.

It also lets us shine the spotlight on the year's best of the best based on those guest ratings. Without further ado:

Best Excursion

So many great ones, we had to break it down by destination.

Best Place to Stay

For the second year in a row, this historic wilderness lodge delivers!

Best Train Ride

The Coastal Classic train route tops the list for travelers years after year.

Best Motorcoach Ride

The top-rated motorcoach segment, and a perfect cruise transfer, too.

Best New Addition

The highest rated new excursion added in 2023.

Best Escorted Package

New to Best of Alaska this year, this escorted tour had such high ratings we had to acknowledge it. On escorted tour packages guests travel with a group and dedicated tour director.

Bonus: Most Popular Package

An itinerary that independent Alaska travelers especially enjoyed.

All experiences are rated on a scale of 1 to 5, 5 being the best. It was a close year. The difference between the top two places to stay, for example, was just 0.1. Also, the combined average for everything we offered in 2023 was 4.5!

Well done to our wonderful partners throughout Alaska. And thanks to our 2023 travelers for filling out those surveys!
