The trolley was comfortable and our guide was very knowledgeable. She had a lot of fun facts and even sang songs along the way. We were able to hit the high points in Anchorage. I would have loved to have taken our grandson up close and personal with the reindeer but we only drove by. All in all, a great tour on a beautiful day!

Donna is the BEST narrator/storyteller we have experienced on “trolley” rides! She shared both historical & personal information. The entire bus gave her a round of applause at the completion of the tour. She even gave us several suggestions for lunch—-The F Street bar/grill.

It was raining cats hard but we had great time anyway. Our guide new Anchorage and history very well and she has great personality and lived fascinating life in Alaskas, did not miss sun even though I would not mind better weather

Fun, easy and relaxing way to explore Anchorage. Alice is a native and shared lots of local and personal anecdotes. She made the trip a real joy. Highly recommend.

Alice was Amazing! From her original songs to her history of Anchorage, it was so enjoyable! This is my second tour and I learned something different each time!
