We arranged a ride with Anchorage Tours and Transfers on-line for a pick-up in Whittier for the end of our cruise. It was simple, efficient, and definitely less expensive than through the cruise line.

We contacted Anchorage Tours and Transfers for transportation from Anchorage to our NCL cruise departing from Whittier. Paul, our driver, arrived on time and quickly loaded up our family of 18 for a wonderful and entertaining journey to the ship. The weather was not very cooperative, but Paul made the trip interesting along the way and accommodated the slow moving... More

This is a must do. Dan our driver/guide was fabulous, he was very friendly, gave very informative information and stopped at some great spots. The best and a must see is the wildlife refuge centre in Portage. This centre is beautifully set out and the animals are very well looked after and all have a story to tell. Thank you... More

Anchorage Tours and Transfers was efficient, reliable and convenient. James, our tour guide, was great! He picked us up at our hotel and drove us to the terminal in Whittier and actually made a stop for us to take pictures. I would highly recommend them!

Anchorage Tour and Transfers picked us up on time at our hotel (after may changes made on my part) and drove us directly to the cruise terminal in Whittier. Our tour guide stopped along the way for pictures and explained a lot about the area. And the price was right too, great service all around!

When I was looking for alternative transportation from Whittier I came across anchorage tours and transfers and found their transfer tour (including the wildlife center and a few stops) cheaper than the direct transfer from the cruiseline for our family of 3. Not only that but they were willing to drop us off at the downtown car rental office (cheaper... More

I had a great time with Anchorage tours. Our driver was entertaining and informative. I liked how he allowed us to hop off the shuttle and bask in the beautiful view. I felt safe and all of our luggage made it onto the cruise.

We really enjoyed our transfer package to our cruise ship in Whittier. It was so much cheaper than going through our cruise line! The ride was comfortable, and our tour guide Jim was very entertaining and full of knowledge about the Anchorage area. We enjoyed our stop at the Alaska conservation center, and Jim got us to Whittier on time... More

We signed up for transfer from Whittier to Anchorage at the end of our cruise. Not only it is much better value than what the cruise ship offer for the transfer, our shuttle driver was an excellent and very knowledgeable guide.

Five of us were picked up at our hotel in Anchorage, we elected to take the sightseeing option tour & transfer to Whittier.
