This was an amazing tour. Although we were concerned when told this was a 7-8 hour tour on a renovated school bus with no meal stops and minimal facilities the time went by so quickly. Our guide Terry was amazing at picking out wildlife. We saw bull moose, cows and a baby (they walked right in front of the bus)... More

We were able to see the animals but who decides when it's safe to go up this mountain on a rainy blustery day? It was raining. You are on a school bus. Our guide used foul language that a seasoned sailer might use. A boulder fell in the road and we had to have a bulldozer come remove it in... More

This 8 hr. tour was a highlight of our stay in Denali. We went by bus with a very experienced guide/driver 62 miles into the park. Very beautiful with abundant wildlife to view. Most guides Master's degrees or PHD's in wildlife related disciplines. Most enjoyable and informative.

Everything we expected, and more. Our guide/driver was Kevin and he was fantastic. Extremely knowledgeable, great communicator, witty, observant - all while driving a bus-load of people on pretty narrow roads. Having great weather and a bus full of people really into the experience helped, I'm sure, as did seeing a lot of wildlife: grizzlies, moose, caribou, Dall sheep. But... More

Our guide was a wealth of information about everything we were seeing. We were able get "up close and personal" with telephoto lenses of lots of wildlife including moose, caribou, bears, goats and sheep.

Rather hard to visit Denali and not take this tour. We traveled about 65 miles into the Park then 65 miles back. Roads through mountains could give you problems if you don't like heights and looking down hundreds of feet at times. We saw many Grizzlies, Moose right at the road, Caribou, Dahl Sheep, Eagles, Mountains everywhere and animals not... More

My husband and I toured just recently and we loved the complete experience. As you may have read these buses are old school buses but worked well for the situation. Bathroom breaks are taken often enough for it not to be a concern. We did see animals but they were at a good distance. Dall sheep, caribou, moose, bear, a... More

My husband and I did this tour in August, 2015. Weather started off cool and clear. Busses are older school busses not motor coaches. We had a very old bus that had mechanical problems while going up the first hill. Driver called in and got us a replacement bus within 15 minutes. There is a quite a variety of terrain... More

Tour was great. Saw Grizzly Bears, Moose, Caribou, And Dall Sheep. Plus we saw Mt Denali (McKinley) in all its glory! Kevin, our driver and guide, made the tour even better. Knowledgeable, communicated extremely well and was very relaxed with us passengers but also extremely safe. Went out of the way to ensure we got a fantastic view of the... More

went on the 8 hour wilderness tour of Denali, going places one cannot see with a car. Sightings of wildlife vary, we did very well, as we did with seeing Denali mountain. Bus was a bit cramped for that long and "meal" such as it was not much more than several salty snacks. For the price something more in order,... More
