Activity Highlights
Your Anchorage exploration starts with easy pickup from your hotel in town. Chat with your guide about Alaska's rich cultural heritage and natural history as you make your way to Ship Creek, where you can watch salmon running upstream. Hear about the devastating quake that changed the face of Anchorage as you pass by Earthquake Park, and watch seaplanes coming and going on Lake Hood.

Follow your nose to Alaska Wild Berry Products, home to a sweetly spectacular 20-foot (6-m) chocolate waterfall made with more than 3,000 pounds (1,360 kg) of cocoa-infused goodness. Pick up some treats from the store before making your way to the Alaska Native Medical Center, a hospital that displays one of Alaska's largest collections of native art. Admire the masks, totems, and artwork on display and be sure to check out the gift shop.

A taste of Alaska will be had by all who choose.  We will make a stop at Alaska Sausage and Seafood where they will bring out samples so you can sample flavors of Alaska.  After, if you choose to buy they have non-perishable items that pack real well in your suitcase that you do not need to refrigerate until you open.  For refrigerated items they sell you a freezer sleeve with jell packs that will keep items cold and last for 36 hours. Many guest buy this option to bring back to their hotel fridge and repack later for the flight home.  Note:  Alaska Sausage and Seafood is not open on Sunday and will not be a tour stop.

Next, visit the ULU Factory, where you can see traditional knives being made and watch a demonstration on how to use an ULU knife and cutting bowls. Your final stop is at Point Woronzof, a stunning viewpoint that offers up vistas of Anchorage's city skyline, the waters of Cook Inlet, and, on a clear day, the distant, glacier-capped peak of Denali. See if you can spot beluga whales, moose, and bald eagles. At the end of your tour, you can opt to go back at your hotel, have your guide drop you at a restaurant or attraction in town, or even rent fishing poles to keep enjoying the great outdoors on your own.
Activity Details
Explore Anchorage with a professional guide to discover the history and heritage of Alaska's largest city. Take in the view from Ship Creek and Point Woronzof, browse the goodies at Alaska Wild Berry Products and the knives at the ULU Factory, and admire native art at the ANMC. What stands out most about this tour is you will have the opportunity to taste reindeer sausage, smoked salmon and smoked halibut. You will get to see most of Anchorage’s popular sites in town including Alaska Wild Berry Products, Ship Creek, Earthquake Park, Point Woronzof, University of Alaska, the Ulu Factory, even the Alaska Native Hospital where you will see one of Alaska’s largest collection of Native Art. The gift shop houses local hand made authentic Native art and the price is right. They only mark items up by 20 percent as opposed to gift shops elsewhere that usually double the price. All proceeds go for scholarships and emergency medical assistance. It also helps keep the culture thriving.

  • This was an excellent tour! Very informative and Ben was so knowledgeable sharing history of Alaska and showing us amazing sites! Would definitely recommend!

  • Our guide was very experienced about Anchorage city tour. He was born there so knows all over the place very well.

  • Our first time in Anchorage so the 4 of us thought a tour was a good idea. Ben picked us up at our hotel and took us on a very informative tour. We were very pleased with all the places Ben took us. I got a ton of pictures. Great tour, would recommend.

  • The tour is ok considering there is not much to see in Anchorage

  • The tour seems more like - souvenir purchasing tour
    ULU Factory - 3 minutes explanation then ready for your purchase
    Alaska Wild Berry Products Factory - you are in your own - is a store to purchase souvenir's
    Not a lot of info about Alaska's history and culture
    The best part is the collections of Alaska Native art at the Alaska Native Medical Center - recommended - but the first stop was at the gift shop before they close it.

  • Just unhappy with the tour. The guide took us to some interesting places which we then revisited with other tour companies who did a much better tour.

  • The pickup was fine and on time but then we got to hear all of the guides personal information and not much about Anchorage. I wish the guides would learn that we really don't care about all of their family problems, issues and concerns. We really just want to know about what we are seeing, the history and the background of the city we are visiting. Isn't that what we pay for?? She was a substitute guide and reminded us several times that she didn't really know or remember much about this tour. Ugh. Very disappointing to say the least. I hope the owner reads this and makes sure we are getting our money's worth.
