We booked the Park Connection from Denali to Whittier after also travelling on the train from Fairbanks to Denali. I would recommend both of these to anyone needing to get around in Alaska. The motor coach ride was efficient and super-friendly to use and the drivers were knowledgeable and personable. It was so nice to be able to get from... More

After travelling from Anchorage to Denali via the Alaska Railway Dome Car, we chose the Park Connection Motorcoach for travel from Denali to Seward.This was an all day trip, broken up with a 1/1/2 hour stop in Anchorage...7:30 am-5:30 pm. We had hoped to get a different take on the scenery, but there was really nothing special until the afternoon,... More

We booked the Alaska Park connection from Whittier where we disembarked our cruise ship to Anchorage. The ride was fast and comfortable, it was dependable service and the driver pointed out eagles and other points of interest along the way!

Dear Hugh, Please accept our apology for your experience on the Park Connection Motorcoach. During the day you traveled we communicated with the company you booked through which had not reported the need for a Wasilla drop off which we do not do for safety and schedule reasons. Clearly, based on your comments there was some unacceptable communication that occurred... More

It was more like taking a tour bus than just a bus from here to there. The driver was a long time Alaska resident and talked about all the points of interest along the way. Bus was comfortable. Pickup point at the museum was easy walk from our hotel.

We took this Park Connection from Seward to Anchorage on the last day of our vacation in Alaska. The bus was more comfortable that I thought it would be and the driver was great! He had lots of interesting knowledge about Alaska and wasn't afraid to share it.

The scenery on the motor coach isn't as extraordinary as on the train, but the schedules make it much more flexible to get from Denali to Anchorage in less time. The driver was very nice and provided narration during part of the trip.

Took the motorcoach from Anchorage to Seward to catch a cruise ship departure. It offered a convenient way to get around and see the area without renting a car, and it didn't require going to the airport. It was difficult to find the departure site outside of the Anchorage Museum at first, but otherwise everything was great! The staff held... More
