Sarah SheaforUnited States
Steve gave a great tour! He altered the itinerary immediately based on what we'd already seen, and added a trip to Flattop view points when the skies cleared enough for us to see Denali. Great stories, great local information, and answers to all the questions we had! Wish we were staying longer to enjoy more tours than just the Anchorage City tour.
Marc LandmanUnited States
Steve was a wonderful guide. There is no way, we would have seen as much nor learned as much of Anchorage history, on our own. Same for all Alaskan history. Our often sceptical friends agree.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Cheers Marc! I hope to take a tour of NYC with you someday.
Robert DaileyUnited States
Awsome day. Could not have been better. Very knowledgable and put every effort into seeing what we asked to see. Highly recommend Steve.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Robert. That close up bald eagle encounter was amazing! Cheers.
Mary Beth F.United States
I can't imagine a better beginning to our Alaska vacation. Steve B educated our family about Alaska and Anchorage, about wildlife, geography, daily Alaskan life, the best restaurants and museums, the best bike rentals, bus tours, etc... Steve moved our tour to the sunny day on which we arrived instead of waiting until the 80% chance of rain day following our arrival! Thank you Steve B!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Mary Beth! I'm glad we got some sunshine in for you and I hope you enjoyed the rest of your visit to Alaska.
Bruce CohenUnited States
Steve did a great job of introducing us to alaska and anchorage. We were 4 adults and 3 kids (17-11) and he kept everyone interested for the entire trip. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a great introduction to the city.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Bruce. It was a pleasure to spend the day with you.
Linda ParriottUnited States
Steve was a terrific guide who shared so much of his local knowledge with us. We saw Beluga whales, bald eagles and Dall sheep along with some beautiful scenery. We had a great time and would highly recommend.

Steve was excellent! I appreciated his text an hour before we were to leave, confirming our Anchorage tour. He was especially patient with our sometimes impatient grandkids, and he even made a special stop for us to pick up an emergency prescription. And of course he was very knowledgeable and informative of Anchorage and area. I highly recommend him!

My DH and I travelled to Anchorage with 6 friends in February. We booked a 3 hour tour with Steve and thoroughly enjoyed it. Steve is knowledgeable, full of information and very professional.

William SchwartzUnited States
Steve was a great guide. He met us on time and provided us with insightful commentary during our excursion. He also had a couple of neat places to show us which we probably would not have located on our own.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks William!
Chloe Jean M.Makati City, METRO MANILA, Philippines
I just have to say that he made sure my mother was able to see the villages in the Alaska Native Heritage Center because she was in a wheelchair. He was the one who pushed the chair which was really a lot of help. He said yes to my request of taking photos in the Lake Hood Seaplane Base and was able to see two seaplanes took off at that time. Short tour for the day but worth what we have learned and saw in the city and this was our third day with him. I will definitely recommend our guide Steve.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Chloe! It was a pleasure to get to know you and your mother. I hope to visit you in the Phillipines soon!
Craig H.United States
Excellent tour. We learned about and saw everything we asked for and more. Thank you.

Socrates BalmesUnited States
I booked my family friends for February 27th 3 hrs Anchorage City Tour and a February 28th whole day Turnagain Arm, Portage Glaciers, Alaska Wildlife Conservation tour. We are a party of seven, Steve is our tour guide for those two days. My wife and I are Alaska resident since the seventies. As I listen to Steve halfway thru the first day of tour,the more I realized there's more here in our home state that I do not know. Steve is attentive to our inquiring mind, curiosity and to our needs.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you! It was a pleasure spending time with your family. You were a joy to be around.

Steve was very flexible in picking my group of 10 up at a time and location different than originally planned. Totally accommodating. We found him to be very knowledgeable, interesting, took us to some great places for viewing the city, wildlife, nearby inlet, etc. He connected well with as all and made it easy to ask questions. He gave a number of recommendations for additional things to do and see while in the area, etc. Would certainly use his services again.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Ron. It was great to meet you. Have fun on your tour!
Mary JacksonUnited States
We want to thank Steve for such a great tour. It was our only time in Anchorage before we flew home and he did a great job of showing us the high lights.

Steve was an excellent guide, taking us to wonderful places in Anchorage, and taking great care of us. We felt we saw a lot of the city, both the natural wonders & the more mundane, giving us a complete sense of the city. No doubt we would call on him again, were we to return to Anchorage!

Cindy M.United States
We threw Steve a curve when we told him we had previously been to Anchorage and consequently we feel it was way too expensive for the tour we received.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Cindy. Thank you for your candid evaluation. An open and honest evaluation process is a cornerstone to any successful business. I look forward to using your comments to improve the services I provide. I've also been working with the Tours By Locals staff to ensure that we resolve this issue to your satisfaction. Thank you for taking the time to help us improve our product. Cheers. Steve.
TOURSBYLOCALS RESPONSE: We spoken to Steve about this - he was prepared for an overview tour of Anchorage and had to re-think everything to focus on what the Meister's hadn't seen. At his direction, we have issued a partial refund for this tour.
