We signed up for this excursion as part of our land and cruise package with Holland America. We were fortunate to have a beautiful day and a great driver/narrator. I believe his name was John Miller. We saw moose, caribou, bald eagles, mountain goats, and a grizzly bear up close. The views of Mt. McKinley were spectacular. We were lucky... More

As part of our sea-land Alaskan cruise we had two days in Denali. This tour was wonderful! Four hours in and fours back on a renovated school bus seems like an awfully long day but it was exciting because of all the wildlife to see. Bears, moose, caribous, big horn ship, eagles and more bears! The bus driver/ tour guide... More

It's a school bus, know that going in. It's a long, long, road. There may or may not be animals, but the vistas! Take this one, not the shorter nature tour. You get views, especially from polychrome pass that can't be matched anywhere. The views make animals secondary. We saw animals, caribou, Dahl sheep, grizzly, but those views!.....

The eight hour tour was a wonderful! We had a beautiful day and we had an absolute great view of Mt. McKinley. Our driver/guide was very nice. We were able to see a lot of wildlife (except wolves). Our driver/guide made every effort to make sure everyone on board had a chance to see the wildlife and take as many... More

We took the afternoon 8hrs tour. The driver/tour guide (Terri is his name, I think) was quite knowledgeable about the flora and fauna of the area. The tour bus was very comfortable. We spotted many animals on the way. But I wish the driver had either stopped or driven slowly around areas where other buses saw bears (perhaps he was... More

The tour is by a knowledgeable guide who has been doing this for awhile. Our guide was Scott Johnson and he was excellent. He said many guides have been doing this for years. We learned so much about the park, the wildlife and the geology. Well done. Bears. Moose. Caribou herd that was huge ( rare we were told). Marmot.... More

Visited Denali in early July and were in the Tundra Wilderness Tour - got very good views on the July 4th weekend. We were at the park on what was supposed to be the hottest day of the year (so far) and the peak was absolutely clear. Unfortunately the heat also drives the animals to deeper parts of the park...

You would think sitting on a somewhat modified school bus for over 8 hours on gravel roads would be something to be avoided but it was really tremendous. We were somewhat late coming back because of wildlife stops and a few unscheduled My McKinley vistas and them came across a few groups of grizzly bear mum with their cubs and... More
