  • Our guide Jeremy was wonderful - so knowledgeable and friendly! The AWCC was fascinating, and the Portage Glacier was stunning. Fabulous day!

  • Great Tour Guide. We loved to get picked up from the hotel and visit the Wildlife Center to see the animals at close range.

  • Seeing the Portage glacier was amazing! The guide was very knowledgeable and friendly! We had a fabulous time and would recommend this tour to everyone coming to Anchorage!!

  • Our guide, Jeremy, took excellent care of all of us, making sure that everyone had a good time and was kept safe. We saw a moose and a bear, in addition to a gorgeous view of Anchorage, a beautiful glacier, and fun at the animal refuge.

  • Jeremey, our guide was very pleasant and considerate. He is a safe driver and helped, especially the elderly ladies in the group. He stayed with us throughout the trip. Boat ride and viewing the glacier were okay

  • We recommend this Tour 100% you will feel like in family with her. She explained everything in details and good sense of humor. Very Sweet Lady! Missed her already - Gilbert and Maritza

  • Lori provides an absolutely lovely combination tour featuring some of the best sights in the countryside around Anchorage. It has a bit of everything... natural beauty, sweeping vistas, guaranteed wildlife sightings, close-up viewing of a glacier, a tasty lunch stop, and enlightening narration. This trip is totally worth it.

  • If you find yourself visiting Anchorage, Alaska, you are going to want to see what makes Alaska what it is...MAJESTIC! I heartily recommend this tour, run by "907 Tours". Now, I may be biased about this, as our Driver/Guide "Chris" was just wonderful to spend time with. We were treated to a splendid sampling of Alaska that encompassed glaciers, glacial lakes, views from spectacular promontories, a truly eye opening wildlife greeting experience and a wealth of knowledge that you'd swear was too great to fit in one person's head! I couldn't have wished for a better day of Alaska than if I'd designed it myself! Tour with "907"; see Chris's Alaska! You will not be disappointed!

  • Stunning, impressive experience. Really enjoyed it. Kris was super knowledgable, and provided outstanding service. Great day trip.

  • Great tour for visitors on a limited stay in Anchorage like me. Kris, our guide, was an excellent host and was such delight during the whole trip. Definitely recommend!

  • This tour is a must for anyone visiting Anchorage. We got up close to a beautiful glacier, saw Beluga whales, visited an animal refuge, and saw lots of Salmon. Our guide Kris was a hoot! Very knowledgeable with an awesome repertoire of song and poems. Thanks for a memorable day Kris!

  • Kris was wonderful, funny and so knowledgeable about the area!!! We loved this tour! Saw a momma moose and two babies and a Dall sheep and two babies!!! Not to mention a wonderful tour, boat ride and really enjoyed the conservation center!

  • This was a wonderful day trip. Our tour guide, Kris was very knowledgeable, friendly and very personable. It was definitely a small group tour with lots of exciting adventures and sights. I would highly recommend.

  • Saw lots of animals..weather was great. Driver was very knowledgeable and since it is a small group all your questions are answered.

  • Gorgeous September day to drive up the Turnagain Arm, sail to Portage Glacier and visit the Wildlife Conservation Center. Our driver was very informative and very entertaining. Along the way there he pointed out the Beluga whales, eagles and a wolf running along side of us on the beach! Ended the day with a stop to see the salmon and then a view of Denali in the Chugach State Park near Flattop mountain. An unforgettable day!

  • Kris was our tour guide. He is a long time Anchorage area resident with a lot of experiences in the area. Our tour started with a beautiful day in Anchorage. Clear and sunny. We could see Denali from our hotel room in Anchorage. Kris took us to a viewing spot high in the hills of Anchorage so we could get a fantastic view of the area. We then drove along Turnagain Arm on our way to the Portage Glacier. Not a lot to see along the Turnagain Arm except for the Buluga whales which we did not see any. Once at the Portage Glacier area, we purchased lunch in the local lodge. Lunch was OK and expensive. The Portage Glacier cruise was fantastic as you get real close to the glacier for nice pictures and viewing. Cruise lasts about an hour. We then went to the Wildlife Wilderness Center. Overall the center has animals that were abandoned such as the bears which I believe were found in the wild with no mother. The bears were the highlight as they come close to the fence during feeding time and do a few things to get red meat. Overall the center is about 200 acres with a lot of wildlife that roam free (inside a fenced off area) but you get the feeling that center is struggling for money as have to ration the food, etc. Kris gave us a good tour of the center and was a great tour guide. I would recommend this tour if you have one day to spend in the area and want to get a good feel for what it is like.

  • Excellent variety of activities with a great tour guide who's enthusiasm was quite inspiring. Great views from the mountains nice glacier cruise and the animal preserve.

  • Very interesting. Great guide. Beautiful area. Relaxed . Not stersing. Enough time to see experience and enjoy.

  • 907 tours was amazing. Our driver/guide, Susan was so knowledgable and very funny. We had a really lovely day, even though it rained so hard for most of it and we were trudging around in mud most of the time. Portage Glacier up close was great. The Alaskan Wildlife Conservation Centre was very good, but hard to rate properly as we were rained on so hard here, but this is not the tour guides fault and she did everything she could to make us comfortable. Highly recommended.

  • This was a fantastic trip! Our wonderful guide is a long-time Alaskan and is very knowledgeable about the places we went and what we saw. What a great start to our Alaskan adventure! I wouldn't change a thing!

  • Our guide, Susan, was outstanding in every way. She was exceptionally knowledgeable and therefore made the excursion most informative. What a delightful person she is to your company!!!

  • great tour in spite of a very rainy day. Loved the wildlife at the wildlife conservation center, wish we had more time there. Knowledgeable guide.

  • Great trip! Our driver/guide, Susan, was excellent with a thorough knowledge of the area and a delightful personality. Much of the cost and value of the tour is related to the exceptional personalized service with all details worked out. The drive to Portage Glacier is spectacular, and the van is very comfortable with a nice high ceiling. The boat ride to view the glacier is tame, so no Dramamine needed. If you have never seen a glacier up close, this trip will be quite an experience. The lunch at the Portage Glacier restaurant offers an opportunity to get some great chowder, sandwiches and cookies. Food is not cheap, so plan on spending 7 for soup and 8 for sandwiches. The wild animal conservancy allows you to see all the key land animals of Alaska. The tour is a nice way to meet fellow travelers from around the globe. The areas of the tour were also essentially mosquito free. You need to allow most of the day for the tour, and in the summer you will have plenty hours of daylight. Of note, we booked the tour through Viator, and the printed information incorrectly identified our hotel as not a pick up site. We were very pleased to have the van pick us up and drop us off at the hotel. Just call the local phone number if any concerns. Hope you enjoy your travels!

  • Very enjoyable. Our guide was informative and very likeable. Enjoyed the sights.
