We did this tour on July 4th - it was bright, sunny and we all got extremely lucky. We saw 3 bears, lots of caribou, a moose, doll sheep, breathtaking views of the park and most importantly we got to see McKinley in full view from Stony Dome at Mile 64! Sarah, our guide, was funny, informative and kept everyone... More

This was an amazing tour that gives a great view of the park! Our tour guide was so incredibly knowledgeable I could hardly believe it! We didn't get to see Mt. McKinley due to cloud cover, but you still get the full wonder and majesty of this national park, even if you miss it. We saw a lot of wildlife,... More

We spent the entire day on a bus trip though the park. Saw the vistas, some animals, learned about the ecology of the park and conservation efforts. Worth it, but long day. Several breaks.

Have to give it a three stars, not because of the tour but had a rock slide inside the park preventing all the buses from going into the park. Did see a few wildlife out in the distance. Tour company did reimburse partial of trip. Guide was very knowledgeable about the park and wildlife.

Honestly, I found this tour to be informative but way too long. The bus we were on was more comfortable than I had anticipated and our driver/guide was extremely knowledgeable and interactive with the group. Plus we had great weather so all the sights were clear. My problem with the tour is simply that it is too long. Seven or... More

The Tundra Wilderness Tour is the only way to travel in to the park unless you are staying at the lodge at the end of the park road. No private vehicles are allowed otherwise. It is an 8 hour tour that takes off in either the morning or the afternoon. You go quite a ways into the park and you... More

As a parent with an 11 year old and an 8 year old I was a bit hesitant about the length of the tour. I couldn't have been more wrong! This tour was fantastic! Our driver, Dave Laughton, was wonderful, engaging, filled with great info and funny. He really made the tour enjoyable. We were the lucky ones who saw... More

We thoroughly enjoyed this tour. The bus was very comfortable. Our driver, Chris, was very knowledgeable and had been doing this for 23 years. I would suggest taking the very early tour. You have a better chance of seeing the summit of Denali. Our tour came with a 'box' lunch. This is really just a snack box. We would suggest... More

We anxiously awaited our tundra wilderness tour, and scanned our side of the bus for 8 hours. The sceneries are really really beautiful. Our bus did see a mama moose & her baby at about 150 yards, 3 caribou at about 500 yards and another 2 absolutely HUGE male caribou at about 500 yards. But it was an incredibly long... More

Like in Seward where we saw all kinds of animals including whales, we were hopping to see the Alaskan Bears in Denali, at the end after more than 7 hours in a bus we got to see very few animals and no bears at all, very disappointing. The worst thing were the bathrooms, really don't go there if it is... More
