We used this bus line to get from the cruise ship to our car rental in Anchorage.I choose it because they made it sound like they cared about your comfort, advertising that they had a restroom on the bus(which they did, but they discouraged using it unless it was absolutely necessary). The bus driver was not friendly at all, never... More

Dear Usatrvl, Thank you for your review. We are sorry you felt disappointed. It appears that the major issue with your experience was the drop off location due to rain and everything else seemed bad because of those two things. Unfortunately, there are stops that our big bus is physically unable to make and since we cannot stop at the... More

We had two tickets for the basic shuttle bus from the docks to Anchorage airport. After leaving the ship we were able to quickly find our luggage and someone from the company. The boarding was very quick and easy. The trip took around two hours. Since we didn't pay more for a more in-depth trip, it is mostly just a... More

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

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
