We liked the number and variety of animals that we viewed. We disliked the length of tour ...7.5 hours On and off the bus. We traveled 63 miles into the Park. Views and guides knowledge of the park made long ride worth it.

The bus tour goes well in to the park and we saw good wildlife. The bus had a zoom camera with tv screens to view the scenes. The highlight was the tour guide Matt who was excellent.

Getting up at 4:00 am to get on a very crowded, small seated with no leg room bus to tour the Wilderness to see animals in their natural habitat was not On the top of my list of fun things to do. In the 8 hours in the bus, we saw some small white dots up in the hills (Dall... More

We decided to upgrade our tour to go deeper into the park and have a better chance to see wildlife but the 8 hours in a bus was a little scary. The time went very fast and the bus was surprisingly comfortable. We decided to bring a few extra snacks to supplement the provided box lunch which was a good... More

Visited Denali National Park in May 2012 and did this tour. Everything about that day and tour was perfect - our tour guide was River White who was great as well. Saw several grizzlies, caribou, moose along the way which made this our best trip ever! Saw lynx as well which just was like icing on the cake. Of course,... More

Our driver, Becky, was so full of information. She was great about stopping and giving us time to look at the wildlife people found. We had a CLEAR day and saw Mt. McKinley, bear, moose, caribou, Dahl Sheep. Becky explained so much about Alaska and also talked about the safety. The bathrooms in the park are less than desirable so... More

This tour was set up as part of our Holland America land tour and we were very shocked to find that we were scheduled to leave at 5:15 am the next morning after traveling all day by train from Anchorage. There were definitely a few complaints getting up by alarm that morning. However, now we wouldn't have wanted it to... More

This is a roughly 7-hour bus tour with a few stops in between. We signed up for the tour online and the bus picked us up from the hotel lobby at 1:30 pm (back to the hotel around 8:30 pm). The most important part for making this tour excellent is the seat on the bus -- pick the seats on... More

This is a five hour bus drive out in to the Tundra wilderness on dirt roads. They stop for rest breaks every hour and also stop when wild life is visible so that photographs can be taken. We came across bears, caribou, moose and a red fox and the views of spectacular scenery are unforgettable.
