$20 a head is expensive for what we actually saw. The drive round was quite fast in places with acceleration not normally associated with the trolley tours in other cities. It was well organised with the start/stop outside the visitors centre at F and 4th street. They also give you a coupon booklet so you may be able to recoup... More

I loved this tour! The guide was delightful and I learned so many interesting things about Anchorage that were not in pamphlets. The guide grew up in Anchorage as did his Father and he had some great stories about the 1964 Earthquake. Relaxing!

The $20/person price is a bit steep, and the fact that it's cash only, is a bit off-putting, but the 1 hr tour was a good way to see things that we would not normally see in Anchorage. Trip starts inmiddle of town, but a large part of the trip is out of the downtown, past the Earthquake park exhibit,... More

Great way to start a visit to Anchorage area. You will be driven to sights and learn loads of information along the way. We returned to some of the locations they pointed out.

If you only have a few hours and want to see something in Anchorage, take the Anchorage Trolley Tour. Very informational, entertaining and inexpensive at $20. The tour starts through the downtown area, (reindeer hot dogs) And a few neighborhoods including Earthquake Park, (maybe see moose) Ship Creek, and Lake Hood - the busy float plane base.

What a good way to get to see the area. Driver gave lots of facts and information. We always like to use the city tours buses but this was one of the better ones and a bit more personal.
