    What to Expect
    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 city’s 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.

    It leaves from the tourist centre and buy tickets off driver. It was great to see the city as we were only there overnight. We went out through where all the floatplanes are housed and in the way we saw a Moose in the paddock.

    I think they have several drivers/guides but we also had Donna as have some other contributors. She was excellent and didn't stop talking for the whole hour. Personal knowledge, recollections, history and the 'big' earthquake, how the locals cope with being so far from the...More

    Took this trolley tour with Jody as guide. She was excellent. Cheerful and knowlegable. Has a very good singing voice as she sang the Alaska state song at the end of the ride.

    I arrived in Anchorage on 9/8/19, and immediately took a trolley around the city. What a great experience! The guide (Alice) was knowledgeable and entertaining! A good way to see what the city has to offer.

    No need even though the buses are mostly full for most runs. The trolley runs all day on the half hour. We could have gotten on a ride at any time. We missed one and got a reserved seat for the next bus . We missed that... More
