I was worried that 8 hrs on a bus would seem like it would never end, but I was pleasantly surprised that it really passed quickly. Our driver was Sarah and she did a great job of giving us information, but also keeping things moving. We saw 3 grizzlies, a moose, caribou and Dall sheep. We also lucked out and... More

We took a tundra wilderness tour to go deep into Denali National Park. The naturalist was very experienced and explained flora, fauna, geography, geology and history of the park, it was a very worthwile experience. The wild life viewing was amazing, we saw grizzly bears, moose, caribou, eagles, willow ptarmigan (the state bird of Alaska), and a coyote. The landscape... More

This tour has seasoned guides who are knowledgeable about the park, excellent bus drivers and also attentive to the needs of the visitors. The 8 hours in the bus is a bit hard for everyone but especially for kids. There is no real way around it without camping in the park itself. The guides are mindful of this and schedule... More

We chose the 7 hr(approx) tour and it was fantastic. You can never be guaranteed wildlife sightings but on our trip we saw it all, up close and personal! Most exciting was the many caribou and the grizzly bear beside our bus not paying us any mind. Views were spectacular and our guide, Matt, was awesome.

Not really being an outdoorsy person, I wasn't that thrilled about going , but I'm sure glad I did!!! The views are breathtaking!!! We actually saw bears, caribou and moose. Now that's something a city girl doesn't ever get to see! Our driver was fun and informative. The clouds even went away long enough to see Mt McKinley!! The bus... More

Can't say enough about this tour. It's so nice to ride into the National Park without having to drive. And as an added bonus the driver is extremely well informed. They provide water and a snack for the road. The driver tries very hard to find animals. It's well worth my time and money to take this tour

We decided on the Tundra Wilderness Tour (8 hour tour that takes you to mile 62 or so) and it was a highlight of our trip! We had an awesome bus tour guide David who was fun and very knowledgeable about Denali - the time flew by! We saw caribou, moose, Dall sheep, falcons, golden eagles, alpine squirrels, snowshoe hares,... More

This was 7 hours. We took the 5 am tour and the tour guide was John Miller. I recommend this early morning tour because there is no other bus on the road at the time. A nice snack was provided and plenty of stops whenever you wanted.

We truly lucked out and had wonderful weather for this Bus Tour. The seats were comfortable enough, especially for a "school" bus. The guide/driver was very knowledgeable and personable. There were plenty of stops to see the views and scenery. Whenever someone saw an animal, or thought they saw an animal, the bus would pull over so we could all... More

This is simply a must do/see excursion if going to Denali National Park. The bus while lacking the creature comforts of a motor coach, has practically unlimited access to the park. It was an 8 hour round trip and we saw the peaks of Denali, grizzly bears, moose, caribou, a wolf and a porcupine. Not to mention the spectacular views.... More
