I have taken everyone's advise and planned our trip independently for our holiday from Australia to Alaska Aug-Sep.
It has been easy with a bit of planning and organising. Must say I am very grateful to everyone I have come in contact with in Alaska They all have been most helpful in replying to my email requests and help with bookings for rail, accomodation, cruises, flights etc..
Flight in to Anchorage Aug 31 = Booked.
Rail and motorcoach transfers = Booked.
Day cruises Whittier & Seward = Booked.
Mt.McKinley Flight = Booked.
Should I be booking the day trips we are looking at eg;( Denali Shuttle into park, Riverboat Cruise at Fairbanks, River Rafting, Dog Sled kennel tour) from now or wait till arrival or at least till later? It still seems a long way away. I do have the Toursaver book which I can use for Fairbanks river cruise and river rafting at Denali.
Also would have loved to visit Exit Glacier in Seward, utilising the Exit Glacier shuttle but it stops operating just a few days before we are in Seward. Are there any other option to get to the Glacier from town?
Also have not booked flight out of Anchorage Sept.12th. as still have not decided where to fly to next to spend 4 days before we head to DC and NYC. Too many places to choose from. Maybe leaning towards San Francisco at present.
Thanks for all your suggestions.
