A tour of Alaska's biggest city

Explore Alaska's surprisingly wild metropolis. We'll take a spin around Anchorage and I'll tell you all about Anchorage's history and people. We'll visit scenic and historic spots as well as its more contemporary downtown. Generally the tour will include the historic locale of Ship Creek where the town was founded, a guided tour through Earthquake park. And last, a trip to one of America's most scenic highways, the Seward highway where we might just see a whale if we're lucky.

The tour can be tailored to your interests.
