Alaska Shore Tours
Drew tapped The ZaneRay Group to upgrade his websites and enhance the customer experience. ZaneRay integrated cruise schedules into the site so customers can view trips compatible with their itinerary. After the introduction of the user interface tools collaboratively designed and developed, Alaska Shore Tours saw an increase in revenue of nearly 300% in the first year.
About Alaska Shore Tours
Alaska Shore Tours was founded in 2013 by Drew Fortner and his wife, Petra. The idea for Alaska Shore Tours sprouted when Drew was working in Carcross, Yukon with several tour companies in Skagway Alaska. He quickly realized while tourism was strong the level of customer service and marketing offered to folks in the lower 48 had plenty of room for improvement. This is when the idea of having one website to promote all of the tour operators was born, starting in Skagway. Which over the next few years grew into Juneau and Ketchikan as well.
Worthy of mention is that since its founding, Alaska Shore Tours has always had a 5% pledge and donated 5% of profits towards programs that strengthen Alaska environmentally and culturally. The company has a firm belief that tourism can give more than it takes and promote the evolving idea of 'Travel Responsibility.'
