It was very informative and beautiful. Wish we would have seen more animals, but the guides can't control that. Did see a moose and her baby and Dall sheep on the hills. Definitely a must do if you want the history of the area.

Denali National Park is definitely a must-do when in Alaska. We took the regular park bus tour (the Tundra Wilderness tour) and highly recommend it. While these buses are similar to school buses, the seating is more comfortable. While their are no restrooms, the bus...More

We booked the regular bus trip inside of Denali. We arrived a little early, so we had a chance to look around. The trip was great!! We saw 3 grizzly bears. We saw Mount Denali without a cloud in the sky. It was beautiful.

It was beautiful we saw the mountain from every angle. Weather really cooperated. I recommend the bus tour of the park, it is a great way to see more as well as view animals on the trip.

This is definitely one of those once in a lifetime experiences everyone should experience. It just cannot be captured in any photograph. The vastness of it all. Wow!
