This 8 hour ride into the Park at mile 52 was worth every minute. We went in the afternoon and saw a great deal of wildlife. The bus driver was just great with her narrations and the occasional stops were wonderful.

This tour was part of our cruise/land package and we were lucky to get the 2:40 tour which would return about 10:30. Our bus driver on this tour said this would be prime time to view the wildlife. The bus is very much like a school bus with converted seat inside like those in a motorcoach so its very comfortable... More

Make sure the bus you are put on is an "operating" bus. Everyone was loaded on the bus and we took off and had gone about a block and then our young female driver informed us that the speaker on the bus was broken. She did not attempt to talk to us the entire 61/2 hour tour or point out... More

My family took this tour and it was outstanding. It takes about 8 hours and covers about 2/3 of the park road. On our trip we got to see 10 bears, 3 moose, 5 caribou, and a fox. Amazing. We also got the opportunity to see Mt. McKinley from top to bottom. This was an amazing site. This was a... More

This tour is about 8 hours long and is well worth the cost. The guide was very knowledgeable, explained what we saw, told us a lot of the history of the park and answered any questions we had. On our tour we saw Grizzly, Caribou, Red Fox, Golden Eagles, Dall Sheep, Ptarmigan and lots of other small wildlife. We were... More

We booked this trip hoping that we would get a beautiful day and weather. We hit the jackpot as we were provided a view of Mount McKinley from base to summit, which is extremely rare. Our excellent tour guide explained that it was only the seventh time out this year that he has even seen McKinley. He was extremely knowledgeable... More

While the 4 of us were a little daunted about an 8 hour trip, we quickly agreed that anything less was a disservice to Denali. Fortunately, we had a picture perfect clear day with Mt. McKinley very visible around almost every corner. Our driver was experienced, informative and drove us to the last very closest spot for photos of Denali.... More

Our tour started off into the park with our driver trying to limit our expectations. We are told this is the wrong time of year to see wildlife, the weather is not right to get a peek at Mt McKinley, etc. So, our low expectations were wildly exceeded. The drivers on this tour or not just seasonal workers. Most of... More

Saw plenty of grizzly and caribou, along with a couple of dall sheep from the comfortable distance of a bus. A little long but well worth the trip.

This tour is fantastic. We went in the afternoon and were able to see 8 grizzlies, too many caribou to count, three moose, and dall sheep from a ways off, and other native creatures. Of course, they cannot guarantee that you will see the animals, and we probably saw more than average. The panorama view at polychrome pass is unreal.... More
