Pickup at our hotel was easy, but then the whole bus was kept waiting at the airport because the driver said one family was turning in their rental car! We all had to wait in the bus at least 10-15 mins. for this family of 3. If everyone else got there on time, this family could have too! That was... More

We did the scenic 1/2 day tour from Seward to Anchorage. Their website says they are the only company with modern coaches with restrooms onboard. We were in a smaller van with no restroom, but we did make one stop along the way for everyone to use a roadside restroom. The narrated tour consisted of a CD playing that skipped... More

Hello, I'm afraid you have misidentified your transfer company. We have only mini buses in our fleet and do not advertise full size coaches or restrooms. We also do not have any CD's and all of our drivers give live narration over the PA system. The company that your transfer was with was Alaska Cruise Transportation and you will see... More

I want to express my appreciation for the wonderful job that Cal did in transferring my wife, myself and my friends from the port of Seward, Alaska to the Anchorage airport. Not only did he describe the sights that we passed during the trip; he also helped out with respect to a bag that we accidently left at the pier.... More

This is the worst pickup ever. First the driver was late, then we had to go and find him. Secondly our driver was TEXTING while driving us at 70 mph. During our drive we almost hit an RV. DON'T TAKE THEM UNLESS YOU HAVE A DEATH WISH!!!

Hello, In all points your complaints are highly exaggerated. As was previously explained to you, the driver left at 8:30 which is exactly on time by our posted schedule. If your travel agent told you 8:15, that is not something we are responsible for. There was no need to go looking for the driver as he would have come to... More

We booked our tour with Anchorage Tours and Transfers alreay in advance. The pickup and transfer went as easy as the online booking. Our driver Mike welcomed us already nicely at the cruise ship dock and we felt from the first moment safe and secure. His explanations and informations on the way back to the airport had been informative but... More

The driver met us at the cruise dock and directed us to the waiting bus. He was well versed in local knowledge and talked a perfect amount during the 2+ hour drive to airport. Scenery was great, view from bus good. No issues at all.
