Why Travelers Choose 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.
OMG! If you get to take a tour with Alice, the driver we had, be prepared with a box of Kleenex from laughing so hard!!! She is an entertainer who wrote songs and could rap about the sites of Anchorage! This was probably the most amazing trolley tour I have taken! Actually, I did this same tour 2 years ago in Anchorage and that driver was great, too, which is why I wanted to do it again! But Alice has a special talent of spreading happiness and her passion for Anchorage was contagious!
The one hour Anchorage Trolley Tour was fantastic! Our Tour Guide/Driver was wonderful and she gave us so much information, some of it from her personal experience, of Anchorage, the 1964 earthquake and the surrounding areas. We would highly recommend this tour to anyone!
I originally was looking for a hop on hop off tour as we had the entire day to sight see. Unfortunately, I didn't see any and came across this tour instead. It was very informative and very well run. There were a few stopping points, but not allowed to get off and take pictures, It was fine, because most sights that we wanted to see more of, were downtown and within walking distance of the tour company. BTW, the tour starts and ends at the visitor center downtown. Make sure you go in and see what other tours are available. Everyone was very friendly and we were very happy with our tour. I would include a stopping point where we could get off and take pictures at Earthquake Park.
