Alice is the best!
Andrea_M, Sep 2021
This is a good tour to introduce you to Anchorage. I wish we had done it the first day instead of last. It's a quick tour and it's not hop on hop off, so you just take a quick loop of the city. Alice really made the tour, she was entertaining and funny. I don't know if I would have liked the tour as much without her, just because I wish it showed more of the city and was a little longer. Its a must do once while visiting Anchorage.
Response from Host, Jan 2022
So glad you had a good time on your tour! Thank you for your feedback. We would recommend the extended tour that gives you more time at each stop and is a hop on hop off for the next time you visit. Thank you for such a great review! ❤️❤️🔔🔔🚎🚎
Welcome to Anchorage
LISA_M, Sep 2021
It was a great introduction to the city of Anchorage. Initially, the ability to acquire tickets proved more difficult that I felt it should be. Our internet connection was not very strong and so the site timed out several times. We called the toll free number on the web site to order tickets only to find out that you still had to pay online. Not much help. We had to drive around downtown until we got a good signal. Once we arrived at the trolley we found that we could have paid cash at the location. We were told on the phone call that we could not do that. Our driver Alice did a fabulous job both with her home grown knowledge of the area and her great sense of humor. We learned a lot about the area and now have the knowledge to explore from here. We can highly recommend Alice as your driver for this experience.
