Iditarod Tours - Wild Alaska Travel Iditarod Start Tour Guest Testimonial  by Susan Eichor

I’ve come to realize that what I most appreciated of your guiding was how you let each of us “discover” the Iditarod in our own way, but without any of the usual burdens of researching and planning.  You provided that perfect blend of freedom and support for each member of the group.  From your website, I knew that we would be traveling with a world-class photo journalist.  I now know that you are a world-class guide, too.  We were so fortunate to have found you!” – Susan Yamada, Hawaii -
