  • Alice the tour guide and Cyrus the organizer of the tours are as upbeat and as friendly as can be

    They both are extremely knowledgeable about the history of Anchorage

    Alice even throws in a show tune or two while on tour

    I would highly recommend this light, breezy, and easy way to view the highlights of the beautiful city of Anchorage.

    The trolly cars are kept impeccably clean and smell wonderful

  • We thoroughly enjoyed the one hour trolley tour. Our tour guide was both interesting and very informative. Would highly recommend.

  • The tour was very informative, fun, and pleasant. Our tour guide, Donna, was so helpful! I would recommend this tour. 👍👍👍

  • Good value for the money. A safe, clean, easy access (3 stairs) Trolly. Narrated by a knowledgeable, good natured, Tour Guide. Take a 15 mile circuit around and through Anchorage and learn some history about the city, as well as where the landmarks are. It was a half hour well spent. Good for all ages. Singles, couples, families and groups. Better to book ahead to ensure a spot.

  • Although short, this tour was informative. James, our tour guide, a retired high school band teacher and local resident of many years, was very knowledgeable and provided personal commentary on the city of Anchorage and its history. He recalled a very personal view of a friend of his who was a survivor of the 1964 earthquake and how they escaped while their home slid into the ocean. He talked of the miracles the residents experienced that fateful day. James and his boss Cyrus, both very delightful individuals and helped us start off our day just right.I would recommend this tour to anyone who is looking for a brief but thorough review of the city and its history.

  • Very well done. A great start to our cruise.

  • Tour was awesome!
    The tour guide was exceptional!
    Plus we saw a moose!
    Highly recommended!

  • Interesting and informative tour. Guide was very knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor. We saw two moose and she went out of her way to make sure we could snap a picture or two. Would have bee. A five star if she wore her mask properly.

  • Great for an overview of Anchorage especially with a short time constraints. Enthusiastic (overly?) guide.

  • Cheesy jokes and stories. Not a lot of sites other than earthquake related stuff. Best site was earthquake park.
