My wife and I had a private tour with Steve on the first day of 2017. We joined the Turnagain Arm and Portage Valley Tour which covered almost all must-see attractions in the area. While our arrival time was 5am in the morning of a public holiday, I was glad that Steve could arrange the tour very well. We had... More

Steve from Great Land Adventures provided two of the more incredible experiences of my life. Beautiful night seeing the Northern Lights (with a campfire, hot chocolate and a heated hut perfect for waiting for the magic to happen), and an stunning day out on the Matanuska Glacier. Unforgettable. Great Land Adventures is THE. BEST.

I had a private tour with Steve on a cold, rainy afternoon. But that didn't matter one bit! The sights were still jaw-dropping. Steve is friendly, gracious &knowledgeable. Highly recommend!

This was an amazing tour! Steve is full of knowledge about the city, plants, wild life, customs and more. He was friendly, polite, and made sure we were happy. Highly, highly recommend this tour with Steve. We plan on using him again and again for tours.

Steve Busby is the best tour guide in Alaska. He took my wife and I to the Matanuska Glacier, which is about 1.5 hour drive from Anchorage. Steve is fun, knowledgeable and personable. He answered every question and provided information about the history of Alaska and its people, including the regions of native people, who do subsistence living. My wife... More

We had Steve pick us up in Seward and take us to Anchorage for an all day adventure. We are so glad we did! So much to see in this area and we were able to stop along the way. We have never had such a knowledgable guide and we learned so much from Steve about Alaska history as well... More

Went on an outstanding 3 hour tour of Anchorage. Steve was a wonderful guide friendly and knowledgeable. Took us to the main highlights with a history of Anchorage and the Alaskan railroad. He picked us up at our hotel on time and brought us back. I would highly recommend for people staying a short time in Anchorage before heading to... More

Bill gave us an awesome day after disembarking our cruise in Seward. A relaxed but really fun day - Bill was at all times accommodating, pleasant, informative, went the extra mile to give us a great time. Unquestionably the best way to get from Seward to Anchorage!! Highly recommended.
