"We don't judge a successful day on how many miles we rode, but by the smile on your face." With that motto as their driving force, the expert guides at MotoQuest play a role in each step of the tour planning—from manning the phones during initial queries to scouting out routes that's tailored to each group's comfort level. The multilingual team, who are also trained in First Aid and Professional Comedic Stand-Up, amiably lead groups of no more than 10 bikers all around the world, from Alaska to South Africa to Vietnam.
Riders board a fleet including Harley Davidson, Kawasaki, and Yamaha bikes and either follow guides down roads that veer off typical tourist paths, or pick up a road map and carve out their own epic journeys. They may also opt for hourly or weekly rentals of the motorcycles and scooters. Journeys may take riders across scenic landscapes or through bustling towns that acquaint them with the local culture.
As Halloween approaches, dozens of macabre vistas appear across the country, frightening but somehow also beckoning groups of visitors. The masterminds behind these apparitions? America Is Haunted, a company that has fear down to a science. That starts with the element of surprise, as each location holds its own secrets and scares. Six terrifying mazes, eight mini-shows, more than 300 monsters, goblins, and ghouls including larger-than-life rats, spiders, and gargoyles, as well as interactive experiences, gory vignettes, and costumed actors await throughout each attraction. The escorted journey may begin with a disorienting, technicolor maze where each turn brings guests face to face with some new horror. Other locales might include a maximum-security prison where the inmates run wild or a grocery store where the cereal is all the healthy kind.

Anchorage City Trolley Tours introduces visitors to multifarious attractions in the City of Lights and Flowers, including the world's busiest floatplane base on Lake Hood, the monuments at Earthquake Park, and the waves of Cook Inlet. While Alaskan-raised trolley drivers dish out useful info and fascinating history about each part of the city, riders will smell Anchorage’s famous flowers and spot majestic moose eating grass and debating their retirement options. Be sure to show up 15 minutes early to nab a seat next to the large, photo-friendly windows inside the heated, enclosed apple-red trolley. Potential passengers should fill out the online seat reservation page to secure a spot.

After the Anchorage jaunt, you'll head to two different chocolatiers to sample artisanal truffles.

Flattop Mountain Shuttle allows freewheeling bike-riders to leave their vehicles at the mountain’s base for a day of seamless, scenic downhill cycling. Shuttle service sidesteps the onerous aspects of mountain biking by depositing cyclists at the Glen Alps trailhead, bypassing the need to search for a parking space at the mountaintop, plead with friends for a lift back up, or painfully pedal uphill to the car and drive home with the legs of a jellyfish. At an elevation of 2,200 feet, riders of all experience levels can find a downhill route to suit them, from rough and adrenaline-rousing to serenely scenic. All three trails boast glorious views, including emerald vegetation, crystal-clear creeks, the colorful alpine wildflowers, and glimpses of grazing moose or former unicycling circus bears watching with envy as cyclists fly by.
