      Not worth the money.
      I though the tour was overpriced. For what I saw, the tour could have been shorter. The tour guide was hilarious and made the tour less boring.

      Great experience and better than the standard tour
      We highly recommend the Anchorage Trolly Deluxe City tour. It is worthwhile, interesting and being able to get off the bus to see things closer is way better than the standard Trolly tour. Having Donna as our driver and guide was fantastic as she is fun, the consummate story teller and has a long history in Anchorage.

      Lovely Anchirage tour!
      Delightful one-hour tour of Anchorage, led by Joanie. Anchorage is a beautiful city, and since our stop-over here is very short, this was a perfect way to get a taste of it.

      Great Tour Riding in “”The Don” With Donna at the Wheel!
      Our guide, Donna McCarrey, was fun, knowledgeable, and a good presenter. As captain of “The Don”, she told us stories about the earthquake, history of Anchorage, and other personal stories. It was a good tour and a starting off point to explore more on your own.

      Good way to learn about Anchorage
      Had a day to kill before our cruise, so we jumped on the Trolley to learn about Anchorage. Very delightful and informative. Comfortable ride with several stops to stretch our legs and view the scenery. Driver was awesome.

      Deluxe Trolley Tour the Best!
      An AMAZING tour!! Worth every penny! Wouldn't have been the same without Donna - she was GREAT! She was the best tour guide I've ever had! We saw all kinds of wild animals -- best was we were about 10 feet away from a MOOSE! The Earthquake Park was the highlight for me! They had ih 1964 an earthquake of 9.5 magnitude - which only ranked to 10!! Did major damag and the ground fell between 40 and 60 feet! ** We got to stand on the fault line! ** Everyone will enjoy!

      Anchorage Trolley Deluxe Adventure!
      The entire tour was a delightful experience! John was such an amazing guide. He provided a detailed and friendly narrative of the places that we’ve been to and made us all laugh with his cool and feel-good jokes. It was an awesome experience!

      Excellent city tour - fun and informative guide.
      We had limited time in Anchorage, so did the deluxe tour to see a bit of the town…especially loved the visit to Earthquake Park - would’ve loved to spend longer walking around there. Unfortunately no moose sightings for us. Ean was funny but informative..kept us entertained. A great way to spend a couple of hours in Anchorage.

      Amazing!
      My husband and I took the trolley tour of Achorage. Donna was an outstanding tour guide! She shared her story of her life throughout her years in Alaska. In addition, she had done research about several historical, scientific, and cultural facts. It was a rich experience beyond reading about facts on the Internet. I have been on many tours throughout my life, and I would rate her as the best tour guide I have ever had. Achorage was a wonderful city to visit because of this tour.

      Enough Already
      While I appreciated seeing areas around Anchorage, the personal stories being told by the tour guide were way too much. Definitely took away from the whole tour. I wanted to hear about Anchorage and the sites visited not this person's life. I don't understand the need to do this when there has to be so many interesting facts about Alaska and Anchorage in particular.

    We did this tour on our first full day in Alaska. The intention was to orient ourselves to the layout of the city, however, this tour taught us far more. In an hour, we learned more about the history of Anchorage than we did from all of our other experiences combined (we were in Anchorage for 12 days). Donna was amazing! She told the history of the city from a personal perspective that really resonated, even with our teenagers. I highly recommend this tour. I am sure the other guides are great, too, but I suggest you recommend Donna's tour for an unforgettable experience.

    Very popular tour. There was a continuous line for the 1 hour tour, which departed every 30 mins, when we were in town today.

    Our driver/guide was Jenny and although it was only her second week on the job she conducted the tour very well and was both gently humorous and informative.

    It is no reflection on her, therefore, that I would rate the tour as moderately interesting, simply because there isn't a huge amount to see. It's probably most worthwhile if you're just planning on a short visit in the downtown area as it takes you out to places like Earthquake Park and Lake Hood, which you perhaps would not otherwise see. If, however, you're planning other activities like a flughtsering trip or cycling the Tony Knowles trail it's likely to be less worthwhile.

    Thank you for your review of Anchorage Trolley Tours, and for rating us 3 stars. I'm sorry to hear that our tour didn't quite meet your expectations, especially since it sounds like you enjoyed your driver/guide Jenny. Anchorage is a beautiful city with plenty to see and do, and we're glad our tour gave you a glimpse of some of the highlights. If you're ever in town again and have more time to explore, we would be happy to show you around on one of our other tours. Thank you for choosing Anchorage Trolley Tours, and we hope to see you again soon!

    This is a touristy one hour tour, it kicks off in the touristy part of downtown, with lots of touristy gift shops offering touristy things, and mostly touristy restaurants. And still, we found this to be an excellent tour, informative, provided us with lots of context for our week vacation to follow. Brief enough to squeeze in at any time of day, no wait if you have a reservation, very short wait if you don’t, it starts and finishes exactly on time, the charming and funny driver/host covered a lot of distance in one hour, hit various keys area, and narrated some fascinating information, both local and state wide. Easily would recommend this tour for anyone, adults, families, teens, even younger. The cute, clean, safe, trolley replica adds to the fun.

    Kris (with a K) was awesome! He was thorough, mixing information in with personal experience as a 4th gen Alaskan and comedy - making it an overall amazing trolley ride. We didn’t know what to do when we got to Anchorage so we’re so glad we found the tours and got put on Kris’s tour! We’re still talking about what we learned a week later and just remembered to review. Worth the money for 5 of us to go on the ~one hour trip to learn about the planes, the trains, the nature, and the moose gooser!!!

    Hesitant to fall into the tourist trap of "city tours', we signed up for this, with not a lot of time to spend in town. It was FANTASTIC! Donna, our driver and guide took us to little corners of the city that we never would have explored. She was incredibly knowledgable about everything from history to earthquakes to wildlife. She has lived in Alaska since 1977 and had amazing personal stories to share. Highly recommend

    The Trolley Tour around Anchorage was the BEST way to start our trip to Alaska. The staff at the Visitor's Center were so courteous and helpful to all of the customers and quickly got passengers on their respective trolleys. Our tour guide, Donna, was such a delight and provided a ton of information (but not overbearing) throughout the duration of the tour. Her personal experiences were insightful and jokes were hilarious. My wife and I would highly suggest taking the trolley tour. No Dramamine needed!

    The trolley tour was a fun and informative activity. Our guide’s name was Braken and he was extremely personable and helpful. The tour itself was about an hour long and allowed us to get oriented for further sightseeing. The tour met near the Log Cabin Visitor Center which, itself, was a good place to acquaint ourselves with the city. Fortunately, we had excellent weather so could see the peak of Denali 150 miles away.

    We had an amazingly beautiful weather to take the last trolley of the day! Donna did an excellent job with her narration adding just the right amount of humor to the constant stream of history she presented. Very fun to hear her "inside" stories of so many important events in Alaska - from statehood to the earthquake.

    Although I'd been to Anchorage several times before, this was my first tour of the city. I really enjoyed it and highly recommend it for all visitors!

    Fun tour of the Anchorage area. Our driver was informative and happily answered all questions. We were very impressed when he pulled over shortly after leaving the boarding area to tell a rowdy Japanese family he'll be glad to take them back and give them a full refund if they choose NOT to keep their boisterous, screaming kids quiet (they were just as rowdy before they ever got on the trolley, too). They were making it hard for everyone else to hear the narration, and we really appreciated him addressing it so swiftly and effectively. Hardly heard a peep out of them thereafter. It was a fun little tour, though we had already seen some of the area on our bike ride the previous day. At $38 per person for a 1-hour trip, it seems rather pricey, though. There could have been a few more things to see and tell stories about, like the park that was a former Nike missile launch center, but overall it was a nice way to spend some time before needing to get some dinner.

    Donna was our tour guide and she was fabulous from start to finish. She was incredibly knowledgeable about the city/state and shared the information in a very personable manner. She was able to share several personal stories that brought the history to life and kept us involved and entertained for the entire ride. We were so glad that we fit this into our time in Anchorage!
