“Our guide Josh was very entertaining and full of great info! We would recommend this tour of Anchorage. Great way to start our 4 days in Anchorage.”
“This trip was fantastic! I highly recommend it. Our guide, Robbie, was very knowledgeable and friendly. In fact, everyone we met in Alaska was friendly. The wildlife we saw were great. This was our first time to Anchorage, but we will definitely be back.”
“The tour took us to four different sites - aerial tram ride up Mt. Alyeska, fresh lunch in Girdwood, an Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center tour, a Portage Glacier cruise, and scenic photo-stops along the way. It was a whole day tour. Our guide was Sarah who was just excellent in providing a detailed narrative. She answered many of our questions about Alaska lifestyle and places we visited. The tour was most enjoyable. A must for all new visitors.”
I cannot praise this tour enough. Our tour guide was so incredibly knowledgeable of both Anchorage and Seward and really helped get us into that Alaskan feel. She stopped at several locations and allowed for many photo ops. The tram ride up the resort was nice. We saw a wild bear and her 3 cubs. We went in early June and there was still plenty of snow to play in at the top of the mountain. The lunch was great. Soup was good. Everything about this tour was great. If you may not go to Alaska again, take this for your transportation to the cruise port over the train. We are so glad we did!”
“This was an absolutely fabulous trip! The pilot (Ed) was wonderful and very knowledgeable. We did luck out and have a rare cloudless day and we were able to see for miles!!”
“This was a fantastic way to get to Seward from Anchorage and an amazing introduction to Alaska. The train was very comfortable and the Gold Star service with 360 view via the domed car was well worth the additional $$ for our bucket list trip. We thoroughly enjoyed this train ride and highly recommend.”
