This tour fully encompassed all aspects of comfortable travel (coach & train + cruise option) that fit my expectations to see/explore the diversity of Alaska's environment, locations, economic contributions and terrain. Experiences, descriptions, and stories provided by local tour guide, Debbie, allowed me to be fully immersed in the history, culture and day-to-day life of persons living and working in Alaska. Bus driver, Maurice, stressed safety & was gracious in providing an inviting and safe riding experience. The dome train experience was phenomenal, enhanced by stories & descriptions of area by the local train guide & our local tour guide, as well as the ideal weather day that was clear & sunny and allowed us to see the summit of Denali at every turn. Upon completing this tour I had a greater appreciation of the beauty, diversity and unpredictability of Alaska's environment; the resiliency and adaptations necessary to live in our 49th state; and the influence of historical and cultural beliefs and values on day-to-day life. I thoroughly enjoyed exploring individual towns with allotted time on my own, and tour options, with thorough descriptions by tour guide so I could make an informed decision.

Well done tour of Alaska. We like tours that are educational and this one was. It was full of adventure and excitement. There were wonderful options to customize our trip and we took advantage of them. Our tour guide and driver were excellent and had intimate knowledge of Alaska and call Alaska their home.

The tour was very good but we had problems t the hotels. You need to tell people that denali is a hotel not the park . Also the bus tour should be part of the tour not 95 dollars extra . This is the only suggestion I would have to improve the tour . Our guide and driver were excellent.
