    A great way to travel anywhere in AK. Relax and enjoy the ride. Lots of room to move about the train and meet new people. Views of Denali are possible. Comfortable, warm, safe and dry.

    Great views, you can get so close and see this mind blowing glacier. Must see, we loved the park area and the short hike was easy for all

    We were on Holland America and this excursion was with Allen Marine Tours. Great view of the glacier and got a glacier education along with seeing some glacier calving.

    Excellent museum - well worth a stop to learn about the history and experience the art. Bring some quarters for parking.

    I was able to take a group of travelers for a meet and greet experience.
    The timing was perfect. We were there in total for about an hour. The reindeer ran down, fed all around us, allowed us to touch them and take some great pics. We also had the chance to buy some products & souvenirs from their tabletop store set up.

    It was the perfect amount of time to connect and enjoy. I don't know if I could have stood being out in the cold much longer so I am glad we didn't do more.

    Also they do a great job sending out a required video to watch before meeting the reindeer to remind about what to do and what to wear. That really helped our group to prepare for the experience.

    What a great place to whale watch. We saw orcas with a baby and others. Wonderful views and great experience. I even liked the bus ride to our boat. Don't miss this opportunity.

    Awesome experience! One of our guides, Loki, was helpful, kind and funny, but all the guides were knowledgeable and engaging! Very non intensive walking trail — not a hike, more accessible for some folks. Learned a ton about local flora and fauna.

    Such a beautiful place to visit. You can only visit areas of this beautiful Fjord by either flight plane, helicopter or boat. We did take a tour boat and were so very happy with our experience. Our stop at the Eddyrock and the granite walls and waterfalls, and watching a pod of killer whales were all opportunities that added to the joy of our experience.

    We had a great time on our bus tour through Denali National Park. We saw many animals and the driver stopped anytime we wanted him to. Our highlight was seeing a grizzly bear. The bus driver was equipped with a camera that brought all the animals in very close so you could see them clearly if they were too far for the naked eye. They served us a snack box due to the long ride through the park and stopped for bathroom breaks going in and coming out. They also recycled everything that was given onboard. Beautiful views throughout the trip. There were also a couple of scenery stops along the way so you could get all the pictures that you would want while there.

    My husband loves cars, so he was eager to visit. I am not particularly interested in cars, but it was a cold snowy day and I had nothing better to do, so I tagged along. I am so glad I did!

    The incredibly beautiful pristine vintage clothes and accessories that were lovingly displayed on mannequins next to the cars were just stunning. The outfits matched the styles and the colors of the cars and there were plaques for each item that described the clothing in detail. Not only that, but a very friendly knowledgeable docent was walking around to add even more information about the displays.

    We arrived about an hour before closing time. I wish we could have had more time.

    Great experience. The waiting in line was a bit long coming off the cruise ship but the staging area was right off the boat. It's a round trip on the same track so you see all sides. Standing out on the end of each car was a treat! Diesel fumes standing outside in the front care were strong. The narration was really fun and informative throughout the trip.

    Very beautiful national park. We went in October while the visitor center was closed, but took the short, paved 1 mile round trip hike to Exit glacier. It was absolutely worth the experience.

    This was one of the unexpected gems of our trip to Alaska. Jeff King, who has won multiple Ididarod sled races offers a tour near Denali Park that includes meeting his dogs, learning how he raises them and prepares the dogs and himself for the 1000 mile race from southern to northern Alaska. His presentations are energetic, the demonstrations fascinating and you’ll leave learning a lot about the racing experience.

    What a fun hike! The path is paved and mostly flat. Not a wilderness hike by any stretch of the imagination but enjoyable. The path was very icy today. Couldn’t have done it without grips.
