Great tour. Not to short and not to long. Lots of wildlife and beautiful views. Just enough time at the stops for pictures. Our bus driver Lindy had great information and was good about stopping for wildlife pictures.

We read many reviews, good and bad, about this tour and I guess were expecting more on the "uncomfortable", "long", "bring your own snacks" etc. side. We were fortunate enough to be the first people picked up so we snagged the front of the bus....More

This nine-hour trip is the only way allowed by the park service to drive sixty miles into Denali. The trip is offered only on modified school busses, replete with those awful wheel wells, jam packed to maximum occupancy. The tour itself is incredible. We saw...More
