This past year has been a busy one for us at Explore Tours. Behind the scenes, it seems like there hasn’t been a moment of rest while we’ve focused on reinventing ourselves including a new website, new enhanced tools for our travelers, and a new philosophy defining what it means to be Alaskana. All these changes have come about because we are growing. At each milestone, we think it’s important to reflect on what brought us here. In our reflection, we’re overwhelmed with gratitude for our community of professionals, Alaska-enthusiasts, and travelers that have helped us become the company we are today.
As it is the season to show our thanks, we’re jumping in on the 30-day Thanksgiving Challenge! We’ll be posting our notes of thanks to our Facebook, Instagram and Twitter pages throughout the month and also keep a running tab of each day’s note of gratitude here on this post.
