My transfer arrived on time and we stopped by other hotels to pick up passengers. I did find it a tad annoying that at one hotel we waited and waited and waited some more for some slack people not being ready for their pickup. When they boarded couldn't have cared less. We actually missed our tunnel time at Whittier as... More

We needed to get from Anchorage to our cruise ship in Seward and chose the "Big Bus". It was a great choice. They picked us up from our hotel on time and transported us to a collection point at the airport where we joined the coach to Seward. The driver and guide were top notch. We had paid a few... More

Several other reviewers have given detailed stories about travelling with driver/guide Tim. I just wanted to add my two thumbs up for a great-in-so-many-ways experience from being picked up from our HA cruise ship to being dropped off at our hotel. "Musher" Tim was amazing for keeping up a mostly one-way conversation with our tired bunch on a cold and... More

We booked with ACT to transfer us from out hotel out to our cruise ship in Whittier. Driver was a bit late, but was not a problem. After stopping at a couple of other hotels and the airport, we headed out the Seward Highway. Stopped at a view point and then the Wildlife Refuge, where we saw many animals that... More

Tim was great and very knowledgeable, sharing his stories and love for Alaska. There were set stops along the way that let you stretch your legs and experience the beauty of Alaska. The bus was clean and well air conditioned, since we went a fairly warm day. I originally did the 4 hour trip but upgraded to the 8 hours... More

I booked this tour simply because we had a day to kill and needed to get from Seward to Anchorage after our cruise. After a week of city tours I wasn't exactly looking forward to another but our tour guide Tim made this day a highlight of my trip. He was incredibly knowledgeable and I loved hearing his stories about... More

Bus trip from Anchorage to Seward wilderness tour. This was excellent. Driver picked us up right on time. He gave excellent talk on the way to cruise. Wildlife park was fantastic. He told us excellent history stories and stopped to take pictures. The bus dropped us right at ship and all we had to do was walk on. A 10... More

Thrilled with out choice of ACT to take us from Seward to Anchorage. We had a late flight so we needed to kill time. Our option of ACT was spot on. Tim was knowledgeable, entertaining, and informative (and played great music when he wasn't talking.) He's passionate about living in Alaska and dog mushing and it shows. It was a... More
