We used Anchorage Tours and Transfers for our shuttle from Anchorage airport to Whittier and I'm happy we did. We did the transfer/wildlife tour. Our driver, Janeen ?, was very informative and did an excellent job. We made several stops along the way and besides seeing great scenery, learned alot about the land, animals, locals, etc from Janeen.

We booked a transfer from Whittier to Anchorage at the end of our cruise. When we got off the ship we were told the bus broke down with no definite ETA. We were offered no alternate options and no refund. We ended up paying more and getting a cruise ship transfer. At least they gave us our money back when... More

I'm certain that you must be mistaken regarding the company you booked with. Even though there have a been a few rare occasions were a shuttle has been late due to a mechanical problem, we have never failed to show up for a transfer. We have a spare bus to ensure that a back up can be sent in case... More

We got an email and a phone call informing us that our pick up location had changed. They arrived on time, loaded our luggage and drove straight thru to Whittier. I can't remember our driver's name but he provided some narration of some of the sights we drove by and explained about the Whittier Tunnel. This transfer was definitely less... More

Thank you Payuk for being ON TIME at the Anchorage airport! We planned a private tour from Anchorage airport to the Whittier Port which is an hour and half away from Anchorage. It was great value since we got a private shuttle for 4 adults and a baby. Payuk learned all of our names along the way, and we even... More

This was an excellent experience. Payuk first picked up my parents in Anchorage, and then came to get us at Great Alaskan Holidays where our family of five were returning the RV we rented to tour Denali and the Kenai Peninsula. Payuk helped with all the luggage, and was entertaining and informative during the drive. This service was so much... More

I'm sorry that your experience was not completely satisfactory. Regarding the pick up, there are some locations that we do not stop at and these are listed on our website. That would have been the case even if you had taken the direct transfer instead of accepting the free upgrade to the tour. We also spoke with James that he... More
