This giant company offers tours to more places than any other, including some excursions -- on the Yukon River between Dawson City and Eagle, for example -- that are entirely unique. The catalog covers just about anything in the state that could possibly be done with a group. Prices depend on a variety of factors, but in general, a tour of a week is about $1,400 per person. The operator of the motorcoach tours is called Gray Line, and the hotels are Westmark. The Westmark hotels are sometimes among the best in town, including those in Juneau (called the Baranof) and Fairbanks, while others are unremarkable.
