The drivers are very informative about the area and did an excellent job of driving from one location to another. We took the motorcoach from Anchorage to Seward, from Seward to Talkeetna and from Talkeetna to Denali. Coach was very comfortable.

We traveled from Denali to Talkeetna one day, and Talkeetna to Whittier (with stopover at the Anchorage Museum) a couple of days later. The first and third drivers were absolutely wonderful. The second was OK, just not as out-going. They kept us amused and entertained, and stopped frequently for rest breaks. (If you're over 65, you'll appreciate that). On the... More

We went from Seward to Anchorage on this bus, and were amazed at the scenery and the driver's commentary along the way. We had initially wanted to take the train, but this turned out to be a more convenient time and certainly as scenic a ride.

We took an early morning coach from Anchorage to Seward. It was a clean, comfortable and informative trip. Driver, (sorry can't remember her name) was personable and gave us insight into the area. Would definitely use this company again.

I took the bus from Whittier to Anchorage. Transportation was organized and on time, however, I wish there had been more commentary on what was seen on the ride to Anchorage.

Was this review helpful? Yes
Steve J, Manager at Alaska Park Connection Motorcoach, responded to this review

We do ask our driver's to provide commentary in route, and encourage them to engage those on the coach to determine the level of interest in hearing about the history, geography, and Alaska life in general. Its always the balance that we seek and we're sorry that it sounds like on your Park Connection trip we didn't get it right.... More

I recently finished a bike trip from Seward to Anchorage. To get to Seward in the first place, I took a 7am southbound Park Connection bus from Anchorage. The bus ride was ok, and our driver made sure to throw in bits and pieces of interesting information along the way. We took a break at Turningarm pass, which I found... More

Thank you for the comments. Bikes are a challenge for us as they do take quite a bit of luggage space which depending on the number of passengers can be limited. We're sorry that you found the cost of our carrying your bike prohibitive but hope you found some great biking trails to explore in Seward. More

The coach driver Brandi was excellent. She was very knowledgable about the area and kept us entertained all the way to Anchorage. We left our hats on the coach.

The bus wasn't full so you got to stretch out and enjoy the ride. The driver highlighted different sections of the ride which was interesting. Overall, an easy going way to get to Anchorage from Seward.
