Anchorage Tours & Transfers made this an easy and fun day for us. On Wed., May 20, our group was met in the Whittier Cruise Ship Terminal. Jim was our driver and tour guide for the day....what a friendly and knowledgeable guy! Our luggage was loaded in the back of the bus so we didn't have to worry about that.... More

We left Seward on a bus with 12 others and our driver Blake. He was a font of interesting knowledge about Alaska.. It's history , geography , social and economic status. He wasn't a native Alaskan but was obviously passionate about the place and so knowledgeable and informative'. We had one photo op and then moved onto the Conservation Centre... More

The tour started late because people did not check in with the driver(not the companies fault at all). But it was frustrating because we were told after we found the driver to take a seat in the terminal and he would call us, which he did. When we got to the bus however we found that 8 of us waited...

Dear Ma'am, In the interest of a fair and honest review, there are several other things that should be mentioned. Foremost, you did not reveal that your family was immediately granted a 100% refund when your father expressed his dissatisfaction. It is difficult to understand how the tour was not worth it when you paid nothing. Unfortunately, the closure of... More

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. Although we took the quick shuttle route, which is direct to Anchorage, the views along the way were spectacular and we even saw a Beluga Whale... More

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
