About
Hop aboard a red trolley in downtown Anchorage in front of the Visitor Information Center. Trolleys leave every hour, giving you some flexibility in your sightseeing schedule. The trolley covers 15 miles over the course of an hour. Pass through the city’s historic neighborhoods as your guide points out interesting trivia. Watch seaplanes make splash landings on Lake Hood and Lake Spenard, & travel through Earthquake Park to see the damages caused by one of the most powerful recorded earthquakes in North American history. You'll also see the historic Alaska Railroad, Westchester Lagoon and maybe even some crossing moose. Your tour ends back at the departure point. Make use of your complimentary coupon book when you explore Anchorage on your own!

Great Insight into the City
Aug 2021
We originally didn't have any plans to do a trolley tour, but my family members who live in Anchorage recommended it. The one hour tour is a great way to get a quick overview of Alaskan history. It was also a good opportunity to look for moose!

The trolly ride is a great way to learn about Anchorage and to get a general idea of the city - especially important if you are visiting without a car and need to walk most places. Alice was AWESOME! she's funny and a beautiful singer. everyone was super friendly and happy to help out anyway they can. we decided to go on a whim and booked our tickets on the way to the pick up point. highly recommend!

A great way to spend in hour learning about Anchorage
Sep 2021
A great way to get an overview of Anchorage. Tour left promptly and returned on time. The tour guide, Cyrus, was fantastic & fun.
This is a great value and well worth your time. The pick-up and drop-off location is perfectly situated in the central downtown area. Perfect for finding a restaurant after the tour.

One hour of fun and cool stuff about Anchorage!
Great way to learn a bit of everything about Anchorage/Alaska as a whole! Alice is soooo entertaining and a wealth of information. Highly recommended!

Note: Online reservation didn’t work so we just went to the visitor center where we signed up/paid in person (look for Cyrus in a vest the red shoes). He gives out coupon books - which we used at the Polar Bear souvenir store across the street (10% off).

The "WOW" Factor
Sep 2021
Our guide was very knowledgable about the development of Anchorage and was extremely entertaining. We saw the underground house, and the Strip River where local fishermen drop their lines seeking fresh fish for dinner.

Jul 2021
This one hour tour is a great introduction to the city. Interesting narration and a good way to get your bearings. When our guide stopped to tell us about an unusual house, the home-oner came out, got on the trolley, and spoke to the group about her house.

First time visitor to Anchorage, Alaska
This was an outstanding tour of Anchorage! Donna McCarrey, the tour driver, gave an engaging and informative narrative as we toured the sights. It was her personal dialogue that made this tour so enjoyable.
