Go for the gold when you visit Skagway, Alaska

Go for the gold when you visit Skagway, Alaska

Located on the Alaskan Panhandle is the borough of Skagway. This picturesque vacation hotspot is home to approximately 920 residents, but because of all the wonderful things to do and see there, that number soars to almost 900,000 visitors during the peak of the summer season.

Happy Traveler Comment
Traveling overseas to a foreign country for the first time can be an overwhelming task. Dean Barreca was a tremendous help to me in planning a trip with my daughter to Italy and Greece. He was a great listener and quickly grasped exactly what I wanted to accomplish while keeping things within my budget. He offered suggestions that I would have never known about if I had not spoken to him and he saved us money in ways that didn't benefit him at all. He truly looks out for the client's best interest which is a rare thing to find these days. My daughter and I had a trip that we will never forget and we owe Dean a big thank you for all of his help and suggestions that were absolutely perfect. I highly recommend him to anyone planning a cruise. — Natalie D.
