The Birth of a Unique Anchorage Experience
Our city, with its tales of pioneers, gold rush legends, and unsolved mysteries, has always been ripe for exploration.
Anchorage’s rich history of tales and folklore, along with our penchant for curating immersive experiences, has already inspired our Spenard Food and True Crime Walking Tour — and this new mystery adventure is cut from the same cloth.
Of course, as a food-focused tour company, we’ve included gastronomic delights that elevate the entire journey too!
A Start Steeped in an Enduring Anchorage Mystery
Every great story needs a compelling introduction — and that’s exactly what our new downtown Anchorage tour has.
Our route begins at a landmark brimming with mystery: the alley between the Historic Anchorage Hotel and the Hilton Hotel.
It’s here that Anchorage’s first Chief of Police, John “Black Jack” Sturgus, met an enigmatic end — shot in the back with his own pistol by an unknown assailant.
But this is just the beginning…
Interactive Exploration in Anchorage Like Never Before
We’ve used our local knowledge to curate a tour route through four to five stops in downtown Anchorage that are pivotal to this story.
But here’s the twist: each destination is a riddle to be solved, and you and your tour group are the would-be detectives!
You will need to tap into your problem-solving skills and decipher clues that lead to the next location.
Typically, each puzzle takes between 30 to 40 minutes to unravel. But don’t fret; every conundrum is solvable with a dash of wit and a sprinkle of teamwork.
Each mystery you solve only draws you further into Anchorage’s mysterious past! The city streets will slowly unfold before you, leading you closer to the heart of this enduring enigma.
This isn’t just any standard city tour. It’s a hands-on adventure that tests your mind while providing a fresh and immersive way to get under Anchorage’s skin.
You can’t beat insights and tips from locals, so we think you’ll also appreciate reading our Alaskan travel tips to enhance your adventure.
An Anchorage Tour That Engages with the Heart of the City
The true essence of any city lies within its people. Throughout this tour, you will engage with local shopkeepers, residents, and other characters integral to Anchorage’s vibrant tapestry.
Each interaction not only brings you one step closer to solving the overarching mystery but deepens your connection to our community.
And you won’t face the case alone. One of our seasoned guides will lead the way, helping you to navigate each new challenge in your way while bringing the fascinating story to life.
A Case with a Culinary Climax
In line with Alaskan Sights & Bites tradition, this suspense-filled exploration culminates in a gastronomic extravaganza.
When your sleuthing duties come to an end, you and your fellow detectives will enjoy a communal feast showcasing the best local Alaskan ingredients.
And just like our other Anchorage guided food tours, we’ve chosen a restaurant that encapsulates our high standards: locally owned, family-run, and with a passion for crafting dishes from scratch.
The exact location remains a tantalizing secret — it’s only fitting! But rest assured, it’s nestled within downtown Anchorage, awaiting to satiate your curiosity and appetite.
