This bus tour goes to the end of the Denali Park road to mile 92 - 184 miles round trip and about 13 1/2 hours. I was worried about the long ride (and so was my husband!) but we didn't even notice the long ride. We saw 7 grizzlies (3 up close), 4 moose, numerous caribou (1 up close) and Dall Sheep (all far away) and several other animals. Francie was our bus driver and she was amazing, very informed and gave us tons of info about the animals, history of Denali, names of mountains, etc. She also was an excellent bus driver and she loves her job. I would highly recommend this tour. We were not part of the 30% who saw Denali the mountain, but it was definitely worth the time and money spent. Be sure to bring binoculars!

The route was shortened a week and a half before we arrived. The reason we went to Denali was to take the tour. We saw five or six Caribou at about 3/4 of a mile and that was about it. I thought they should have reduced the rate but they didn't. My biggest complaint is with National Park Service. They have known about this problem for years and haven't put much effort into solving the problem. If soldiers and engineers can build the 1600 mile Alcan Highway in 8 months in the 40's, I would think this would be a solvable problem in 2021. Apparently this isn't a priority or it would be solved by now. The lady leading the tour did the best she could with a bad situation but it didn't have to be this way. We are going to Alaska next year but won't be going to Denali unless the road is fixed.

At first, I was disappointed that our trip was cut short due to landslide danger and we were only told about it the day we left for Alaska. They added a dogsledding presentation to the tour to partially make up for it. I was sure I wouldn't like it but I was pleasantly surprised! But then, I am a dog person. Thanks to bus driver Melanie who did a great job keeping us informed, safe entertained!

Despite uncontrollable circumstances our shortened ride into Denali was still beautiful. The addition of Jeff King’s sled dog estate was great. A wonderful surprise.

Our tour guide Melanie was absolutely perfect. She was very informative and made it very enjoyable. Her knowledge of Denali was educational and she took the time all guests wanted to view wildlife. She even recommended local restaurants which were very good. We were not able to do the entire tour due to a landslide, which is part of nature, but we still enjoyed every single part.
