  • Guide was awesome. Great personality!!!! The tour route introduced many sites for anyone not familiar with the area.

  • What a fun and informative tour. I don’t remember the tour driver’s name but she was hilarious and so interesting. This is the best thing we did in Anchorage! Also our flight was a little late. I had booked online and didn’t see any way to change it. A very kind man answered the phone at the tour company and let us hop on near our hotel! I was so surprised and appreciative. What a great company!

  • Our trolley driver, Alice, was narrator extradinaire. Not only was she knowledgeable, but she could sing. We were treated to several familiar songs with special "Alice" lyrics to match our Anchorage location. We laughed. We cheered, we clapped.
