Our driver Karl was great, telling stories about local stuff. Ask about the plane stranded at the airport and Wal-Mike's. Seats were comfy and cushy, windows big and clean. There is a bathroom on the bus. Taking the bus up to Denali from Anchorage got us in at noon so we could explore a bit of the park the day... More

When we got off the ship in Seward, there was a booth with 3 people waiting to greet us. They were helpful and friendly. They checked us in, gave us tags for out luggage and told us where to meet the bus. When the bus was ready to load, they were organized and efficient. They handled our bags and had... More

Our weather was... More

I took the Alaska Park Motorcoach from Seward to Anchorage with a friend in June. We had a very comfortable journey, the driver was very friendly, knowledgable and engaging with the passengers. The journey was very pleasant and we've got to Anchorage safely and quickly. The route the coach takes has some incredible scenery and we were able to take... More

Bus service has it down. Timely and comfortable. Great scenery and driver agreed to stop for pictures of Denali which we were able to several times during the trip but he waited til we got to a place that had the best shots. Bus personnel will watch your luggage while you visit the museum in Anchorage or you can store... More

We took the bus from Seward to Talkeetna and the next day from Talkeetna to Denali. It was a very relaxing way to travel - some of the drivers gave us very detailed information about the areas we traveled through.

We traveled from Seward to Denali via Anchorage. Taking the bus enabled us to get to the park in one day while taking the train would have required staying overnight in Anchorage. Both our drivers were personable and very capable drivers. Would have rated the service higher but the bathroom was out of order en route to Anchorage and both... More

We agree if you are traveling both directions to Seward or Denali, its a great idea to take the rail one way and motorcoach the other. More
