The Only Anchorage Tour Guides Offering Food-Centered Experiences

Once upon a time, two brothers in Alaska had a vision — to create the only food-centered tour operator in Anchorage.

So that’s exactly what we did! In 2021, Dan and Chris Morris founded Alaskan Sights & Bites!

As you’ve probably already guessed, all our Anchorage tours have a focus on food. But we’re far more than a food tour company. Our incredible sightseeing and wildlife excursions in Anchorage and the surrounding areas are truly immersive experiences that engage all the senses. From the tasty bites we eat to the sights, sounds, and smells of the pristine Alaskan wilderness, we help you explore our home state like a local. We also put effort into hiring only the best Anchorage tour guides. After all, the guide makes the tour. 

At Alaskan Sights & Bites, we’re still writing our story, and we love nothing more than helping people create an exciting chapter in their own. As Alaskans born and raised, we’ve heard every tale about our special state. These kinds of stories say so much about a place and its people, and they’re key to forming a deeper connection to a new destination.

Our Anchorage tour guides are gifted storytellers. We’ve got tales aplenty about fun and fascinating characters from Alaska’s history — as well as our own amusing personal anecdotes of growing up in such a unique place. We don’t just show you around on a cookie-cutter tour. We use our stories and experiences to create a journey with depth, color, and context, so you can tell amazing tales of your own when you get home. Whichever tours you join us for, you’ll leave us with a deeper knowledge and appreciation for Alaska.

Family-focused Anchorage Tour Guides

Our own story has its roots on the road. At different times, both Dan and Chris set out on solo adventures, leaving Alaska behind to travel the world. Their stories had all the ingredients of a masterpiece; the exhilaration of visiting one-of-a-kind places, tasting delicious food, and meeting extraordinary people.

Travel was the muse that inspired the creation of Alaskan Sights & Bites. We wanted to share our home with visitors — its distinctive culture, natural beauty, and tasty cuisine — just as people had shared theirs with us. The 49th state is renowned for its legendary, first-rate hospitality, so you can count on us to set the scene for some unforgettable moments on your vacation here.

We are passionate about showing our guests the local side of Anchorage. This means you’ll taste locally-sourced fare at our favorite establishments and see lesser-known sites. And since our mother raised us right, we’ll make sure you leave with your belly full, too!

We take pride in sharing our home with all guests on our tours, no matter their race, color, religion, nationality, or sex (including gender identity or sexual orientation). Our mission is to provide fun, insightful, and inclusive experiences and share the fascinating history, culture, and cuisine of the place we call home — the Land of the Midnight Sun.

This isn’t the end of our story, but it’s the start of yours. Browse our full range of Anchorage guided tours to start planning your adventure in Alaska.
