Our driver cancelled on our tour 20 min before our pickup citing illness and van issues. No other drivers were able to pick us up that day and unfortunately we couldn’t reschedule on another day since we were booked everyday. The driver and owner were very nice though and they gave us a full refund. If there are any issues, they should have scheduled another driver to get us at least the day before and not the morning of.

Response from Russ R, Owner at Anchorage Downtown TourGroup
Responded yesterday
No you are correct, there were no other drivers available and I require my drivers to be in excellent health before sending them on a tour. When my driver finally was able to inform me about the issues with her van I found out she was not well and was worried about doing the tour in the first place. I was upset that she had not called off the night before but I insisted we cancel for your safety. I am sorry we were unable to accommodate you. But certain standards are necessary these days and I am not going to take a chance of getting you sick from one of my staff. I do take full resin ability for not being able to speak with you earlier in the day. I am baffled why you choose to attack my business for doing the right thing for your protection. Especially when you received a timely refund in full. I am sorry we were unable to provide your tour as promised. Russ - Owner +1 (907) 802-7444

Had a great experience with this tour! I am a solo traveler and felt safe and comfortable the whole time. It was a perfect day trip with beautiful scenery! We stopped in Palmer to grab a deli lunch and take with us, stopped at the Matanuska gift shop on the way in to get souvenirs and postcards, and stopped a few other places on the road to take pictures. Our driver was very knowledgeable and had great communication before and during the trip. The glacier tour provides spikes and helmet, but I would recommend taking your own trekking poles if you don't have the best balance.

The whole journey is organized and efficient. Juls is our guide for glacier trip. During the trips, she talks about the history and the natives in Alaska. And Juls teaches us to look for dots on the cliff to find animals. She made our trip wonderful!

First time in Anchorage and this Trip Advisor tour stood out to me and I have to say my sister and I had an amazing time! Juls called me the day before to see if I had any questions and prepped me for the adventure. During our outing, we saw a black bear, several dall sheep, a moose and 2 calves, 2 ravens, and several salmon types. We received detals about the 1964 earthquake and various mountain ranges. If this wasn't enough we got some hiking in and a ton of great photos and videos. Juls' energy was infectous! I highly recommend!

Fantastic tour! A small glitch with communication the night before, but it was worked out early in the morning and it was smooth sailing after that. Don picked us up at the hotel, we stopped for sandwiches on the way up & arrived at the Glacier in good time. Meghan took our group out on a beautiful sunny day for a 2 1/2 hour hike all along the glacier. It was awesome!! Meghan was great, very informative and kept an eye on the whole group, making sure we were comfortable with the journey. After the hike, we hooked back up with Don & had our lunch at the bottom of the glacier on the picnic tables. Then Don drove us back to our hotel in Anchorage. I highly recommend this tour!!
