It was a long 7 hour trip from Seward to Talkeetna but there was a lunch stop in Anchorage. I didn't find it as comfortable as the train but it met our travel needs more. I did find it relaxing to leave the driving to someone else & the drivers were very informative pointing out various sights along the way.

The coach was clean and comfortable. Large windows allowed great views of the countryside. The driver was very knowledgeable and his patter and descriptions of the countryside we passed through was easy to listen to and informative. The driver picked a great spot for a combined rest stop and view of Denali (Mary Perry's Place). Thanks for a memorable trip.

We arrived in the afternoon by 1:30 pm and I was worried about how to get from the airport to the bus loading area by the museum. It turned out the taxi took us to the bus in 20 minutes. We even had extra time to walk around downtown Anchorage before boarding the bus to Seward.

The seats were comfortable. The driver talks once in awhile about Alaska things that he finds interesting. Took the train back. So - so. Next time I take the bus with ways.

Our hotel shuttle bus dropped us at the Egan centre to be picked up but when our bus arrived there was a taxi in the parking space which was a bit of a hassle but not the motorcoach's fault. Our driver Anna was excellent and very informative and made our trip very pleasant.

Very comfortable ride down the highway to Seward from Denali with a stop over in Anchorage. This allowed for a trip to the Anchorage Art Museum with a most excellent exhibit of First Nation people' early lives in Alaska. The scenery from Anchorage to Seward was breathtaking, the ride comfortable, and there was slight narration but nothing incessant if you... More

This was a great bus ride. Our driver / tour guide was very knowledgable and we were able to take away many interesting things about the areas we drove through.
