Team members at John Hall’s Alaska are among the best of the best in the industry! Expertise in their field, superior customer service, and passion for what they do all contribute to creating the best possible guest experience – from the moment you reach out to book your tour, during your much-anticipated time in Alaska, and even after returning home.

Our ultimate aim is to ensure the guest experience in Alaska extends far beyond your time in Alaska, and is remembered through photos and memories for many years to come.

When guests call John Hall’s Alaska, chances are they are speaking with someone on our corporate operations team – who continually works behind the scenes to make sure guests are ready for their big adventure by prepping documents, confirming travel details, providing helpful customer service, and much, much more.

Long before a tour departs, the tour operations team is hard at work planning, inspecting, and crafting the logistics of our exclusive, top-notch tours. And it doesn’t end there. It takes months before traveling to carefully perfect the final tour operation details needed, plus constant oversight from the time a guest arrives in Alaska, to the time they depart – including important specifics such as airport pick up, prepping the motorcoaches, and working with our activities, meals, and lodging partners. This is the team who gets the wheels rolling and keeps them in motion with a strong focus on a guest experience that matches no other. Relax and travel with confidence in the hands of this team!
