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.

After reading the reviews on Trip Advisor I decided to take the Red Trolley Tour and see Anchorage. This tour is a family owned and operated business and everyone who works on the tour is very kind and friendly. The guy who signs you up and the Tour Guide were both awesome people! The tour takes about an hour and... More

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.

This was the first tour that we took during our stay in Alaska. Well worth the 1 hour to hear all about Anchorage and some of its history, especially the 1964 earthquake. Our driver was very informative and an enthusiastic speaker. Tour was very good to see parts of Anchorage that we might not have visited otherwise. Float planes around... More

I went on the Anchorage City Trolley Tours and just loved it. The driver Jason was great and so nice. The guy (dont know his name) dressed as a conductor was such a nice young man with a great personality. Made my day. Great knowledge of the area and the interest. Visiting from Hawaii. Will be back asap. Thanks Kawananaaulani

My family and I boarded on 8/31. We had a lovely retired school regale us with stories of Anchorage, the 1964 Quake and other tidbits of knowledge. It was awesome!

We took the trolley tour because we wanted to get a 'taste' of the area. What a great way to learn about Anchorage and to get a feel for the area. The tour costs $20.00 per adult and is well worth it!
