Krista was our driver for the day, and was very knowledgeable of the Park and wildlife. She was also very patient during the photo stops when wildlife was spotted. During the day, we saw bears, moose, caribou,Dahl sheep, and gorgeous views of Mt. McKinley. The only disappointment on the trip was that we were not allowed to climb up on... More

We would like to sing the praises of this wilderness tour run by Krista Holbrook on 8/31. She is a knowledgeable driver who taught us so much about this park. One of the first things she did when she was collecting her guests was to find out who the hunters were and to appoint them as her co-spotters...nothing like cementing... More

We took the full day tour and had a wonderful experience. We travelled well into the park and back, travelling through various types of wilderness. We got to see numerous bears, foxes, elks and other animals. Mt McKinley was as usual blanketed in cloud.

A full 9 hour day bus trip in the wilderness of the Denali park was really breathtaking. Excitement was at he highest level. It brought me back to when I was a kid when I got excited by catching a frog or a lizard. Here things were lot different but the sensation was the same or even better. We had... More

This was a dream trip with Mt. Mckinley in full view and lots of animals close and part of my camera's memory. Our driver was Craig, who had a lot of knowledge and kept us completely informed about the park and the animals. Craig is climbing Mt. Mc Kinley in 2015. With all the glaciers in retreat it is hard... More

Although a 13 hr bus trip might turn a few people off, it was so worth it. As you travel through the beautiful, forever changing scenery, we saw wolf, bear, carabao, moose and mountain sheep. The bus was not full which allowed people to move easily around to get plenty of photos. There were a number of rest stops along... More

This all day tour was a once in a lifetime experience. The bus was not full so we were able to move around for the hundreds of photo opportunities of the wilderness, mountains and animals. We saw about 15 grizzly bears (I lost count once we hit double digits), dozens of caribou, Dall sheep, and one bull moose. Mt. McKinley... More

I thoroughly enjoyed this, my wife maybe not as much. The 13 hour tour may not be everyone's cup of tea, but the scenery, wildlife and sheer beauty of the region is well worth the effort. The only disappointment was that we did not see Mt. Denali because of weather conditions, and as we found out, there's about 80% chance... More

We have done all the bus trips into Denali over the years - this is by far the BEST trip - if you have the time and the option - take this trip all the way to the end of the road!

We did the 13 hour tour and were so glad we did. Saw plenty of wildlife, sometimes up close and personal! Tour guide ( bus driver) was flexible and gave us plenty of time to view animals encountered on the way. Eight grizzlies along our tour...5 singles and a mom and her two cubs. The lunch at the roadhouse was... More
