Foodies unite! This is your golden opportunity to unwrap the Alaska that is a feast for both the eyes and the stomach. America's last frontier boasts a wealth of fresh seafood and other delicious delicacies, which you'll discover on this 2½-hour guided walking tour of the state capital. The added bonus is exploring Juneau's lively culinary scene from one end of the spectrum to the other -- from ultra-casual to fine dining.

Head to the Fisherman's Memorial -- a fitting way to start the day, honoring those who pioneered the industry bringing the bounty of the sea to the world.

Then, explore a variety of eating establishments in the downtown area, each specifically chosen to highlight the edible specialties of Southeast Alaska. Your local culinary host lives year 'round in Juneau and takes great care and pride in providing you with a rewarding experience.

Tracy's King Crab Shack -- firmly in the casual-dining orbit -- welcomes you with its award-winning crab bisque. This popular spot is known for its iconic crab-based menu and relaxed dining vibe.

Next, you'll head to Deckhand Dave's, where you'll be treated to panko-crusted salmon and Dave's famous house-made tartar sauce.

Stroll along the sea-walk to the Merchants Wharf Salmon Shoppe and sample Alaska game such as reindeer and buffalo.

Continuing on your culinary journey, you'll learn that, in Alaska, pigs actually do fly. You'll dine on hog wings and beer at McGivney's Downtown -- a popular sports bar.

The next stop along the way is at SALT, locally feted for its creative cuisine and residing at the far reaches of Juneau's upscale fine-dining scene. Here, you will sample a fabulous dish-of-the-moment with a perfect wine pairing.

Finally, wrap up your experience at The Alaskan -- a historical bar where you will taste beer selections from a local brewery.

Sated and refreshed, set out on the short walk back to the pier. Guests who wish to stay in town to shop or explore independently are welcome to do so, but must make their own way back to the ship.

Notes:

Come hungry -- there are plenty of food samples best enjoyed on a relatively empty stomach. Minimum age is 15 years; minimum age to participate in beer and wine tasting is 21 years. Participants must be able to walk with ease the substantial distance to each venue; however, total distance covered is less than one mile. Wear comfortable walking shoes. Surfaces are paved sidewalks and streets with some inclines and stairs. The tour operator reserves the right to substitute establishments; comparably delicious food samples will be offered at alternative site(s). Bring a rain jacket.
