This is a privately run tour and we hopped aboard a cute little trolley and went around the neighbourhood. The tour was informative and also funny since our tour guide was very sweet and humorous! She also sang a song for us in the end - gorgeous voice there! Overall, it was short but sweet!

We had a fantastic tour guide called Jodie, she had lots of knowledge of the area, and was quite entertaining. The tour takes you around downtown Anchorage showing you some sights, and beautiful scenery, while giving you facts and history about the town, and Alaska. The tour leaves every hour, and is well priced :) I enjoyed my Anchorage City... More

The Trolley Tour was fun! We did it our first day and it helped us get acquainted with the area. We didn't see any wild life, but apparently it's pretty common for you to.

We have taken many city tours throughout our travels and found this one very disappointing. It was not worth $20.00 a person. We felt like we had been ripped off. I don't know if there is just not enough to show a visitor in Anchorage, but that being said don't charge $20.00 to drive through indistinguishable neighborhoods and call it... More

Our trolley driver was from Anchorage and provided us with so much information on the city. We visited Earthquake Park to see some of the results of the Earthquake of 1964 (in turn went and saw movie later on our own). We saw our first Moose while en route along the way. We saw float planes landing by the air... More

Cost is 20.00 to basically take ride around city. Bus driver to airport took us along the same route for free telling us the same information. Would have been better had you been able to get off along the route, takes some pictures etc. then catch next trolley. The driver did have a wonderful voice to sing the Alaska flag... More

My family and I were looking kill an hour in anchorage and while we were deciding the trolley pulled up so we thought why not? The guide was hilarious she was fourth generation alaska and had plenty of personal experience and knowledge. It was a hour tour but felt like 20 minutes. We drove through downtown and all the way...

Normally I'm one to skip this kind of tour but decided to chance it since it was my first day in Anchorage and I was looking for low-key things to do because I was feeling het lagged. Was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the tour and in addition to some of the history I hadn't read about in my... More
