Know More about this tour

Hop aboard a red trolley in downtown Anchorage in front of the Visitor Information Center. Trolleys leave every hour (every half hour during the summer), giving you some flexibility in your sightseeing schedule. The trolley covers 15 miles (24 km) over the course of an hour.
Pass through the citys historic neighborhoods as your guide points out interesting trivia about the area. Along the way, watch seaplanes make splashy landings on Lake Hood and Lake Spenard, and travel through Earthquake Park where you can stare in awe at the damages caused by one of the most powerful recorded earthquakes in North American history. Over the course of four minutes, the 9.2 quake split roads, uprooted trees, and brought on a landslide that sent 75 houses into the Cook Inlet. What remains of this hilly landscape overlooking Knik Arm has been turned into a park commemorating this devastating event.
On this tour, you'll also see the historic Alaska Railroad, Westchester Lagoon and maybe even some crossing moose. Your tour ends back at the departure point. Be sure to make use of your complimentary coupon book when you explore Anchorage on your own.

  • Very well done. A great start to our cruise.

  • Tour was awesome!
    The tour guide was exceptional!
    Plus we saw a moose!
    Highly recommended!

  • Fun driver. Lots of information.

  • OMG! If you get to take a tour with Alice, the driver we had, be prepared with a box of Kleenex from laughing so hard!!! She is an entertainer who wrote songs and could rap about the sites of Anchorage! This was probably the most amazing trolley tour I have taken! Actually, I did this same tour 2 years ago in Anchorage and that driver was great, too, which is why I wanted to do it again! But Alice has a special talent of spreading happiness and her passion for Anchorage was contagious!

  • The one hour Anchorage Trolley Tour was fantastic! Our Tour Guide/Driver was wonderful and she gave us so much information, some of it from her personal experience, of Anchorage, the 1964 earthquake and the surrounding areas. We would highly recommend this tour to anyone!

  • I originally was looking for a hop on hop off tour as we had the entire day to sight see. Unfortunately, I didn't see any and came across this tour instead. It was very informative and very well run. There were a few stopping points, but not allowed to get off and take pictures, It was fine, because most sights that we wanted to see more of, were downtown and within walking distance of the tour company. BTW, the tour starts and ends at the visitor center downtown. Make sure you go in and see what other tours are available. Everyone was very friendly and we were very happy with our tour. I would include a stopping point where we could get off and take pictures at Earthquake Park.

  • great tour

  • The Anchorage Trolley Tour was a nice way to kill some time until our room was ready. For 20 you ride in a bus painted to look like a trolley which takes you around the sites of the city. Since there's not a lot to actually see in Anchorage, the Trolley Tour is really about the great personalities of their tour guides. I'd recommend the Anchorage Trolley Tour for anyone who hasn't been to Anchorage before.

  • Our guide was a retired Anchorage school teacher. She provided us with a wealth of historical information on the area. This tour is perfect for those wishing to know the wonderful history of this part of Alaska.

  • This was a great little tour of the city. They take you to most of the highlights of Anchorage without having to drive there yourself. A
