The young owner of the company is a really nice person, so was the retired teacher who drove the trolley. It was a nice, agreeable way to see parts of Anchorage we would not have seen otherwise.

A nice one hour tour of Anchorage including some of the neighboring residential areas. Tour guide was knowledgeable and funny. You don't get off the trolley though which is both good and bad. The price is right at $20 so it's worth the ride.

We were pleased to work with Cyrus and Jody M. to arrange this tour. We were a group of Anchorage Residents but I think everyone learned some new information about our home town. Very courteous crew and a great way to spend an hour.

We did this to acquaint ourselves with Anchorage. Great tour. Bit pricey for a family though. I think the value is about $10 per person not $20

Our guide was terrific and packed a lot of information about the city and its history into the comfortable 1-hour trolley tour. A nice way to get your bearings, especially if you won't be in Anchorage long.

We boarded the trolley at the Visitor Center and received a briefing by our driver-guide, Ms. Jamie Fairbanks. What a wealth of knowledge about the Anchorage area. Of course, being third generation didn't hurt. The highlight of our trip was encountering a moose at Earthquake Park. What a thrill! We would recommend this tour, about 50 minutes long, to anyone...

Our trolley tour in Anchorage was a lot of fun. We always take a trolley tour when on vacation and this trip did not disappoint. We did have two special guests--the Property Brothers from HGTV! Our tour driver was informative and the hour flew by. This is a great tour for all ages. The price is $20 and it is... More
