I will warn you, it is an all day tour on a glorified school bus on windy roads (not bumpy, it was a smooth ride) but we loved it! Unfortunately the weather did not cooperate and we didn't get to see Denali and there was a few places that would have been great views and photo ops if the mountain... More

We waned to get a good overview of Denali. It was great, but it is a long time in a bus. Lots of rest stops. Great way to see wild life. Guide was helpful in showing the animals up close on a TV monitor in the bus. It is probably to long for most children but our boys enjoyed it.... More

We never saw the mountain but did see many grizzly bears, some caribou and 2 moose, and mountain goats and golden eagles. we even saw some bear cubs. we had an annoying driver who talked too much and told long personal stories which was tiresome. we stopped several times for breaks but it was a long day.

My wife and I took this tour as part of our Land Cruise Tour. We left our hotel at 5:30AM and proceeded into the park up to mile marker 62. This was a great tour as we were able to see Dahl Sheep, Brown Bears, Reindeer and Moose.the tour was about 7 or 8 hours long traveling on dirt roads... More

No place else on earth can you see all these sights! We saw adults and their babies - moose, caribou, Dall sheep, grizzly bears! Some of them were pretty close to the bus, too. And the mountains - incredible colors and huge vistas. We didn't get to see Denali herself - too cloudy - but that just means we get... More

This was one of the main things we wanted to do on our Alaska trip, so we booked it 6-7 months in advance to guarantee a seat. (You have to prepay and there are no cancellations for a week in advance so get trip insurance.) They give you an estimate of what time your tour will depart but it's not... More

Guide was great and we got to see a Grizzly. This is a good intro although we wish we would have had time to do a longer tour deeper into the park.

It was an 8 hour tour that took us 62 miles into Denali state park on the only road that is there. We were a bit disappointed that we did not really see many animals up close . We did see about 5 grizzlies and one was pretty close which was the highlight of the trip. Trip was long and... More

This ATA-sponsored trip was understated and deserves recognition! Our driver/naturalist/guide, George (who had done much of the trip's early development) took our group 2/3 of the distance into the Denali Park on its only road. He continuously provided dialogue of the geology, meteorology, biology and history of the park from its primitive beginnings to its present state. While emphasizing our... More

I admit we may be biased because we were blessed with ideal weather, clear blue skies, and saw an abundance of wildlife. However, even with less than perfect weather this is a not to be missed excursion. The guides are knowledgeable and engaging, the scenery is breathtaking and constantly changing, and there are ample opportunities to see wildlife on the... More
