Not many big-city tours offer a near guarantee of getting to see a moose. This family-owned, one-hour tour is a friendly, relaxed way to get the lay of the land in Anchorage, from the comfort of an air-conditioned and enclosed trolley. You board the trolley outside the log-cabin visitors center— downtown at 4th Ave. and F Street—and then see and learn about a variety of city highlights, including the Alaska Railroad, mysterious Earthquake Park, Cook Inlet, Anchorage Museum and Lake Hood, which is the busiest float-plane base in the world.
See the Sights and Learn about Anchorage Life
While it's great to get a preview of major sights that you'll explore later on your own, the tour isn't just a rundown of tourist spots. The trolley, driven by a longtime local, also takes you into the city's older neighborhoods, so you can get a sense of the regular community and hear stories about Anchorage life. You can also get some great recommendations on restaurants and shop to check out later, too.
