We really enjoyed our day on the Alaska Crafted Tour and Railroad Adventure. The van was incredibly clean when they picked us up exactly on schedule. Very knowledgeable guide on almost all of Alaska and the history of the land. Enjoyed the ride so much I bought a t-shirt at the end.

Exceeded Expectations All Around
This is probably one of the best day tours available from Anchorage. Our guide Roberta was awesome, beer was fantastic, and operation ran extremely smooth. I would book again on a future trip.

Excellent! Stoked to know that we exceeded your expectations. We sure think our Hops on the Rail tour is one of the best day tours from Anchorage. Hope to see you again on a future tour!

Big Swig’s rail and crafted tour was perfect for us. Bryan picked us up at our hotel and took us to the train station. He walked us into the station and waited until we had our boarding passes. We rode the train along Turnagain Arm for about an hour to Girdwood, where he was waiting with his van. From there we went up to the Aleyska ski resort and took the tram to the top. We had over an hour at the top where there is a cafeteria, gift shop, viewpoints and a cozy bar and grill. We used our voucher for lunch. Then we headed back to the Girdwood Brewery. I was glad I had a substantial lunch because the pours are generous! After touring the brewery we returned by van to Anchorage for a distillery tour and finally a cidery. Bryan took us back to our hotel, pointing out restaurants as we went. The tour is a great way to ride the train, take in the views and meet the locals- a full day.
