I it is an ok tour. Nothing special. Not cheap for what you get. The information you get is not anything you could not Google or find in Lonely Planet. I guess there is a market for this kind of tour and maybe in about 30 -40 years I will like this kind of tour as well. For me -... More

It was nice because it took us to places we might have missed on our own. After we came back from the trolley ride,... More

This one hour tour of the city is very informative. Our trolley driver/guide, Donna, was a local who is very knowledgeable and an excellent presenter. You learn about the 1964 earthquake and the history of the City.

The downtown trolley tour of Anchorage is worth ever penny. The guide was wonderful. She went well over required entertainment. The knowledge of Anchorage was above and beyond. A must when visiting Anchorage.
