Driver had considerable knowledge of the entire route to Seward. It was a very pleasant, beautiful ride.
~ Debbie from Texas

Especially liked the fact that we could leave our luggage rather to be looked after while we went for lunch, we were concerned about what we were going to do with our luggage. The people were great very organized and friendly.

Driver was fantastic, the stop at the Talkeetna Alaskan Lodge was a great view and nice spot to grab a coffee. I was very pleased with this as a way to end my trip through Denali National Park.

Enjoyed both of our bus drivers! They made the trip very enjoyable and educational.
~ Michael from California

We were going to book the train, but based on your agent’s recommendation we booked the bus on this scenic highway. I am so thankful for her recommendation because that drive was not to be missed! Spectacular scenery!! So appreciate her guidance on this!

Professional, On-Time, Informative and knowledgeable about the area.

The bus was clean and very comfortable to ride in. The driver was extremely courteous. The day of the bus ride was the first really clear day that we could see Mount Denali. At the stop at Talkeetna, he told us where to go to get some great pictures.
~ Erwin from Tennessee

We enjoyed the bus ride to Denali. The motor coach was very comfortable and there were just the right number of rest stops along the way.

Beautiful sites and scenery along route, excellent narration given throughout our ride from Whittier to Anchorage.

It was the nicest bus ride I have ever taken. I enjoyed it thoroughly. Matt was a wonderful driver and guide and he was even working on his birthday!
~ Margaret from California

We had a wonderful female driver who was spectacular. One of the stops along the way was the Talkeetna Alaskan Lodge that was along the route to Anchorage. The view of Mt. Denali from this lodge was absolutely spectacular - again cloudless skies.
~ Christie from California

Great staff, super nice bus driver, incredible views, on time service. No complaints at all.
~ Priscilla from California

Roomy bus, excellent drivers (really - tremendous employees!), great views.
~ James from Washington

The driver provided interesting commentary on the way to Anchorage. Really helpful suggestions for sight seeing, dining and souvenir shopping. A very helpful, friendly fellow. Thank you.
~ Lise from Ontario

I was afraid we had made a mistake taking the bus rather than renting a car. But this was perfect! We could look out the window and relax. The short stop in Anchorage only allowed us to have a nice lunch in the museum.
~ Deirdre from California

Our bus driver was very interesting with his knowledge of area and information on places to visit while in the area, would recommend him to everyone!!
~ Patricia from Indiana

Excellent service, quite comfortable, reasonably priced. Offers a beautiful view and wildlife sightings.
~ Rebecca from Wyoming

We enjoyed the ride down to Seward, the driver was very friendly and knowledgeable and was glad to share with us.
~ William from Missouri

There was sufficient space in the bus to sit comfortably in one's own seat. It was a smooth ride that was actually shorter than the train ride. It allowed us ample time to see and take pictures of our surrounding.
~ Aracelis from New Jersey

The bus trip was extremely enjoyable and the bus driver was very nice and professional.
~ Suzanne from NC

Driver was excellent; enjoyed his humor!!! A big plus. Great scenery but that is what Alaska is known for, and we were not disappointed. Bus is the way to see Alaska. You don't get lost!!! And you know what you are seeing even if you can't pronounce it!
~ Joyce from South Dakota

The drivers were all terrific, getting off the ship and onto the bus at Whittier was relatively painless. Our driver Lou was funny and avoided a mama moose and her 2 calves when they walked across our highway.
~ Elizabeth from Connecticut

The scenery was wonderful on the trip and the ride was made interesting by our driver who told lots of interesting stories and facts.
~ Mark from Delaware

The staff was so friendly , I was very comfortable in your was very clean. I did not feel like just a number, was a great bang for my buck. No complaints at all.
~ Natalie from Nebraska

Wasn't sure we would like to bus trip after taking the train. However, we got to see a different view and actually got to see Mt. Denali because it was a clear day. This was nice because it was the last 2 days of our trip.
~ Judy from California

Very comfortable ride. Gorgeous scenery that will never be forgotten.
~ Susan from Illinois

Driver was prompt, courteous, professional and in general a very likeable person and great representative of Alaska and your company! I will certainly use you again when in Alaska.
~ Andrew from British Columbia

Wonderful experience - good driver with helpful and fun commentary
~ Therese from Tennessee

We enjoyed the trip between Whittier and Anchorage and the fact that we weren't on a full bus. After being on a cruise with so many people, it was nice to sit back on a nice quiet bus. Thank you for your service.
~ Karen from California

Drivers are very knowledgeable and personable. One of the favorite parts of our trip because they informed, entertained, and delivered us from point to point in safety and comfort.
~ Valerie from Virginia

The bus driver went out of his way to make sure everyone got to see Mt. Denali and other sites.

The driver and your host were friendly and knowledgeable about the surrounding area. They were also entertaining and extremely respectful of the passengers and each other. It was a delightful experience.

Our driver was amazing. We had a blow out on the way to Seward and he was very professional. I was impressed that he was able to change the tire and get us all to our destination safely.
