Heritage City Tour

Our tour begins downtown Anchorage with a visit through the original Anchorage town site, out to Earthquake Park to learn about the great quake of 1964 (where you can see real earthquake damage!), and the busiest private seaplane base in the world. Then we continue on to the Alaska Native Heritage Center, where the entrance fee is included in your tour, as are the personal experiences and knowledge of your Salmon Berry guide who will accompany you on your journey through the center. Here we’ll see a village of authentic and traditional structures from Alaska’s many native cultures. We will have a chance to watch native dancing led by a local dance group, or athletes demonstrating World Eskimo-Indian Olympic Games skills. Explore exhibits that take you back in time.  You may choose to stay longer and use the free Heritage Center shuttle back to downtown, or leave with your tour guide for transport back to your starting point.

Salmon Berry Tours recommends travel insurance provided by TravelSafe Insurance. Salmon Berry Tours is not affiliated with TravelSafe Insurance, nor do we offer any special discounts with them. Our recommendation is based on positive guest feedback. In particular, the experience of one Salmon Berry Tours guest is instructive:

Our guest had booked the vacation of a lifetime and the ultimate Alaska package. She had to cancel the trip a week before it began due to unfortunate circumstances.

She later told us that within ten minutes of phone time her claim was processed in full. She was very pleased with TravelSafe Insurance's immediate and empathetic response. Getting a refund for her trip was the last thing she wanted to think about, and TravelSafe Insurance took care of her needs and concerns immediately.
