We rode the transport bus to Eielson Visitor Center, which is a very long ride, on uncomfortable seats! Cramped, no headrests, cold in the back! These are old school buses. They really need to get more comfortable buses! Our driver, Chavez, was wonderful! He spotted...More

Padded seats in a school bus. Fine if you find wildlife but they do not come out if it is raining. We saw caribou in 2 locations. The guides are very informative.

If you aren't camping in the park this is your only way to visit. You go on an old school bus. The drivers are very knowledgeable try their best to spot animals along the way.

We used this service the whole time we were in the area. Dave was always a little early, and very friendly! The costs of using these guys as a taxi service ended up much cheaper than a car rental would have. Highly recommend!
