  • Before your trip, consider purchasing the Great Alaskan TourSaver Book. The book costs $100, but includes valuable two-for-one discount coupons that could save you literally thousands. A quick internet search will provide more information.
  • The closest grocery store to downtown Anchorage is a bit of a hike, but the walk is beautiful. Along the way you will pass an elegant cemetery and the excellent Falafel King restaurant, so plan to take your time.
  • Anchorage weather is unpredictable, as the city lies between the cold ocean water and always-snow-capped mountains. Rain is frequent, and cold snaps can occur even in the middle of the day. Dress in layers and carry good rain gear.
  • Never buy a souvenir at the first place you see it. You will find much better prices if you comparison shop between several stores.
  • Leave plenty of time in your schedule for shopping. While the souvenir shops are fun, venture into the local stores as well. You will find everything from high-tech cold weather gear to bearskin rugs, as well as a few surprises.

"Exciting, a whole new concept"
Around The World Travel Radio

"Even though I am a local, I thoroughly enjoyed visiting and learning more about the history of the landmarks. The author's interest in the area comes through in his engaging style of writing. Being able to complete the tour at my own pace made it even
more enjoyable."
Flora Savitzky (Researcher)

"When the conference ended, I stayed in town on my own and used T4M's self-guided tour to decide which things in town I wanted to visit and what to see/do there. The guide was right every step of the way. Bottom line, this guide helped me make the most of my time in town."
