Steve was very flexible and accommodating with our mixed-generation group. He maintained good humor and a constant flow or useful information and candid perspective. In three hours, we seemed to cover everything the city of Anchorage had to offer. If I had to do it over, I'd probably just schedule one or two extended hikes as he had some great outdoors spots to share with us for that (example: who knew Anchorage had sand dunes?!) - I would have liked to have been able to linger longer on that.

This was a great tour! Glaciers are pretty amazing, but being on the Matanuska glacier was a whole new, awesome experience. Steve and Amber were great tour guides for the 6 of us on tour. They were careful and very accommodating to suit the needs and activity level of our group. We spent 4 days in Anchorage and 7 days cruising, this was one of the best sites and tours of our trip.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Lisa. We had a blast on the glacier with you!

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.

Great tour! Lots of fun. Anchorage to Seward has to be one of the most beautiful places on earth and Steve was kind enough to make sure we could see as much of it as possible in a short time frame. Steve arrived right on time and had lots of recommendations of where to go and what to see. Some of the main points of interest were the beluga whales at Beluga Point, float planes airport in Anchorage, Exit glacier, Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center, lunch in Girdwood, Turnagain Arm, and much more! AWESOME!

Steve is a very knowledgeable, personable guide. He really listened to what we wanted and gave us a great tour of the wetlands and then a non profit rehab facility so we could see as many animals as possible. Our lunch was at a great soup/bakery spot that was so good most of us had seconds (for free!). He gave us so much history as well as wildlife information. I had been to Anchorage downtown many times but never saw it in this light. He kept a trained eye out for animals = sheep on the hill sides.

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.

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!

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. We especially loved our time at the animal reserve. We got to see Alaska's great animals up and close. We will recommend Steve to anyone who wants to see Anchorage or any of his other tours. Thanks Ed and Mary Jackson, David and Sandy Rayson and John and Bonnie Rogers from Georgia.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Mary. I had a great time with you and your friends. You are a great group of people.

Touring with Steve was well beyond our expectations. He tuned the day to our family, and moved at our quick pace. He had several surprises making what could have been a transit day really special. Thanks Steve! Looking at our photos we can't believe how much we packed into a wonderful day. I would highly recommend Steve and would use him again if I were in Alaska.

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!

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.
