This tour was way beyond what we were expecting, our tour guide Russ took us to so many interesting places we definitely would not have known about ourselves! He also took us through the mountains and we got the most amazing views of the sunset, we also saw so much fun wildlife including baby black bears. Russ was very informative and always kept the energy up. Highly recommend (also so many cool looking planes my parents and I were very pleased.)

We had a very interesting trip around Anchorage and its environs and Russ is incredibly knowledgable and pleasant. However hard he tried the nearest thing to a bear was bear excrement and a moose seen on his camera, so don't expect to see anything and if you do be happy!! One word of caution we booked in the office opposite the Hilton Anchorage but the lady ran my credit card twice and said the bookings hadn't gone through - but a phone call from Russ later then said they had and he was refunding one of them. Fine, but as we come from the UK we lost on the dollar-pound exchange rate on the transaction. So, be careful and pay once!! Russ is really knowledgeable and I had no idea that the native Americans (First Nation for Canadians) had managed to get one billion dollars from the the federal government in I think 1971, because the Russian Tsar couldn't have sold Alaska to the USA in 1867 as they didn't own in!

I am sorry you lost money due to the exchange rate and most importantly, due to our mistake. I have issued an additional $20 refund to cover any additional expense. I hope this note finds you well. I am thankful for your honest review of our services. I hope you get the opportunity to visit again. I am not sure if I told you that I do offer copies of all my photos, for personal use, to anyone who travels with me. Please reach out to me via email and I will send you a link so you can download any photos you wish. Thank you for allowing Anchorage Downtown TourGroup to help plan your adventure. FYI; Public Law 92-203, approved December 18, 1971, authorized Alaska Natives to select and receive title to 44 million acres of public land in Alaska, and $962,000,000 in cash as settlement of their aboriginal claim to land in the State. Cheers, Russ

Russ is nice, if a bit strange, but has extensive knowledge of Alaska on all aspects. He himself is passionate about the wildlife but when I mentioned I wasn't too ekkn on that, he was incredible at switching to accommodate my interests. He added a place to show me some Native art and his explanations were fascinating. We saw n incredible sunset from a great location, and we even encountered a bear. All in all, Id recommend this tour- I learned a lot from Russ.

Mish, thank you for choosing Anchorage Downtown TourGroup for you adventure in Alaska. I truly enjoyed our time together. I do hope you get the opportunity to visit us once again. I would welcome the opportunity to show you Anchorage in the winter. I think you would enjoy it. Maybe someday I will have the opportunity to tour with you in Japan. Cheers, Russ

I hate giving bad reviews but this was the worst tour I’ve ever done. I guess the regular tour guides were not available and didn’t bother to train this guy. He told us at the end that this was only his second tour, hopefully he will improve. His driving was questionable but we didn’t crash. He offered no narration and what he did offer was factually incorrect, again, training. I don’t think he has lived in Anchorage long but he must have to stay a bit since he was wearing an ankle monitor. We did see some animals so it wasn’t all bad.

I do appreciate your honesty, but I would hope you would have called me direct before leaving such a horrible, defaming, review. What people do not realize is we as owners would rather refund you 100% than let you slander our livelihood the way you have done. I do hope you will reach out to me with your complaint.

Like most tours you will receive information about the area, as well as seeing some beautiful sights.

Where this tour felt different to me was with the personable tour guide. Russ went above and beyond to ensure we saw as much wildlife as possible.

Russ shared information about the big earthquakes that changed Anchorage, along with some other interesting Alaskan history. It was great to hear history and facts blended with some personal history.

When choosing a tour, ask yourself -
Who would you rather get a tour from?

-Your down-to-earth, extraordinary uncle that knows a bunch of random stuff and will adjust the tour to accommodate?
-or
- An amiable robot that offers rigid facts and statistics and sticks to a program like glue?

If you’d be more comfortable lounging around a campfire in cozy pajamas listening to stories, go with Russ on this tour.

If you prefer an evening wearing Dior and sipping Macallan 1926 by the light of luxury candles, go find another tour - you’d hate this.

DISCLAIMER: No tour that I know of offers High End Whiskey or Dior loungewear, nor was there any talk of pajamas or campfires.
