Our driver/tour guide was Kevin. Very knowledgable on the history of the park, animals in the park, history of Mt. Denali, vegetation, and trees. If, on the bus, you say you see an animal, he would ask where then position the bus for the best view and educate you on the life style and characteristics of that animal. Lunch at... More

My father and I were picked up at the princess lodge by our guide Kevin and we were happy that the bus wasn't like a school bus, more like a tour bus and we choose the seat directly behind the driver which offered more leg room and could hear what he was saying easier. During the tour we saw 8... More

I cannot say enough good things about this tour. It started from the very first with our tour guide. He was absolutely wonderful. He was knowledgeable and had many stories to share. The only downside was our bus. We had to change busses and Kevin didn't have a microphone but he did an excellent job without it. We saw many... More

My husband and I took the 13 hour bus tour all the way to Kantishna and back on July 15th. You TRULY could not have paid to get a better day in the park! The trip started out slow (no animal sightings for the first few miles and road construction...neither of which can be avoided), but it didn't take long... More

This was a full day tour to the end of Denali Park. Our guide was Melanie and she made the trip back quite entertaining. On the way we did see grizzly bears plus many caribou and moose. The tour stopped at Kantishna where we had a nice light lunch, a walk around and had a very interesting talk on dog... More

We took the Kantishna Wilderness Trail Bus tour on July 3. The bus picked us up at the Denali Princess Lodge at 6:45 a.m. and then headed into Denali Park for the complete 92 mile drive to the end of the park road. I wanted to go as far into the park as possible in order to maximize the probability... More

The morning started out very complicated. We were to be picked up at 5:40 am for the 6:00 start, but the bus didn't get there until 6:30! We drove to several other locations and only one person got on and there was lots of confusion. When we got to the park to get on the tour bus the driver was... More
