Description

Relax, while enjoying a wonderful 2-hour journey to see sites within Anchorage, Alaska.  Our city is filled with fascinating history and an abundance of beauty found nowhere else in the world.

Our tour begins downtown Anchorage and meanders towards our University-Medical District. We view historic landmarks along the way, as well as experience the Eastern Europe influence that help settle Alaska. Then we are off the ascend into the Chugach Mountain range to enjoy breath-taking views and look for inner-city moose and other wildlife.

We descend into cityscape views of the Cook Inlet & Turnagain Arm. We drive through neighborhoods, so you can see how Alaskans live--including backyard airplane runways.

Our journey is packed with many "must-see" sites within the City limits of Anchorage, Alaska.

Plan to view our Downtown Area including our Alaska Railroad area. Next we drive by our Park-strip area and original homestead homes.  These log cabins, located within downtown are rich in history and stories.  We share with you their background and sagas. As we leave the downtown area, we will venture through our Valley of the Moon district.

Its here we see the heavy Russian influence that is found throughout Alaska. The tour is off to showcase our UMED district.  It is here that our University of Alaska and Providence Alaska Medical Center are found. Rich in history and features our most modern architecture. 

Visiting Anchorage wouldn't be complete without visiting our local ski resort area, that includes breath-taking views of the mountains, wildlife and cityscape viewpoints.  As we descend into the lower areas of Anchorage, our Cook Inlet will open into a spectacular wonder.

The tour will travel through several neighborhoods, one of which features an air strip for homeowners to berth their planes.
We conclude by entering back into downtown with views of local favorite spots such as, Star - the reindeer. 

We will arrive to our departure location at 524 W 4th Street, or the Downtown Visitor Information Center at 1 p.m.
