Bus or train?

September, 2014 by Jenny

Spent a long time debating the merits of train or bus for the Anchorage to Seward leg of our holiday. We chose the bus and this company and didn't regret it. Train seems a shorter journey but the road and train tracks are side by side for large chunks of the journey so i can't imagine there is much difference in the scenery. The coach is comfortable and the journey time is very managable, especially given the stops. Really enjoyed the wildlife park stop, although i had read many reviews before the trip saying it wasn't worth it. Also thought the narration in the bus was just the right amount. Overall this seems to be the best option with regards to value for moneyand i would happily chose this company again.

Seward to Anchorage must transportation option

September, 2014 by Sarah

We used ACT for our family of 9 from Seward to Anchorage transfer. When you go from Seward to Anchorage, it is almost 3 hour trip, so you have to take a large motorcoach with a restroom on board. We recommend this company because they are best fit for this long trip. We chose ACT because of their large, comfortable motorcoaches with restroom on board, excellent narration by a tour guide, and prices much lower than the cruise line packages but more value for your money. The organization at the terminal was excellent, the representative was standing right in the middle of the terminal with a big sign, and instructions on how to find the bus were really clear (make sure you read the instructions), the buses were clearly marked and parked right outside the terminal. The tour guide's knowledge was impressive, and driver was very professional and concentrating on driving while tour guide was narrating. The bus was on time and we felt safe and taken care of the whole trip.
When we searched for a transfer company online we came across a couple of other companies advertising their excellent ratings, low prices, and long time on the market. However, when we got off the ship we saw the other choices and we very satisfied that we selected ACT. To briefly describe, one of the representative from another company, very tall guy, was acting very strange towards people who did not choose his company like bad mouthing other companies and so forth. Also we were curious and when we got outside we saw that he was driving an old small shuttle van pulling a luggage trailer behind.
We recommend to use ACT for your long trip from Seward to Anchorage if you want a worry free transfer and great value for your money. 

Very good experience

September, 2014 by Bragg

Clean, comfortable, informative transfer from airport to cruise ship. I'd recommend this vs the higher priced packages & transfers offered through the cruise lines themselves.

Great way to get from Anchorage to Seward!!

September, 2014 by Mike

We booked the transfer from the Anchorage Airport to the cruise terminal in Seward. The pickup was very easy and the price reasonable. We were very impressed with how knowledgeable Richard the narrator for the tour was. He was very interesting and enthusiastic. We also stopped at the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center on the way. It was a great spot to get nice pictures of moose, caribou, brown bear, musk ox, etc. I would highly recommend this transport from ACT!!

Great option to get from Whittier to Anchorage

September, 2014 by M R

We independently made a reservation with ACT to transport us from the Whittier cruise terminal to Anchorage airport so that we could pick up a rental car for the second portion of our trip. Everything went as planned. It was an inexpensive, reliable, quick, and informative trip. I would highly recommend this shuttle. The bus actually left early that Saturday morning and made the 8am Whittier tunnel rather than the 9am because everyone got to the bus quickly. That was a special bonus, as it added another hour to our vacation!!

Highly Recommended!

September, 2014 by Misc

My husband and I used this company to get from the last stop of our cruise (Whittier) to Anchorage. Our flight wasn't till 9:30 that night, so we chose to take the all-day tour, just to kill some time and see a bit more to the area before we flew home. We noticed that it was also the least expensive option if you just wanted to drive directly to Anchorage. We couldn't have been more pleased! The representative was right there to meet us at the terminal with a big sign, directed us right to the big, comfy bus waiting outside, where the driver took care of our luggage. There was also a tour guide on the bus, who was extremely knowledgable, happy to answer a zillion questions, and very funny to boot! Both the driver and tour guide were super professional and friendly. We thoroughly enjoyed the Wildlife Conservation Center (it was in a gorgeous setting, very clean and beautifully maintained) and the stop at Mt. Alyeska for lunch and STUNNING views! They dropped us off at a hotel in Anchorage that kept our luggage safe while we found a great, fun restaurant in town for a nice dinner and drinks, before we took a short cab ride the rest of the way to the airport. Nothing bad to say - they made it a great, fun day!

Great end to wonderful cruise trip

August, 2014 by Jane

We booked ACT to transport us from Whittier cruise terminal to Anchorage airport. Loved the stop at Wildlife Center. Our bus narrator was excellent, pleasant and very informative. Bus ran on-time and the price was great! We would use this company again...

Best part of Whittier

August, 2014 by Gypc

Whittier was a charming little town but it's small and we really we wouldn't have stayed or seen anything of it if it hadn't been for this tour. Our guide was energetic and informative and really transformed a compulsory trip from A to B into an enjoyable part of our journey to look forward to.

ACT - Great start to an amazing week

August, 2014 by Keme

my husband and I really enjoyed the bus ride from anchorage to Whittier. Sights were beautiful and loved finding out about the sights we were seeing. Great start to a wonderful vacation!

ACT Bus trip from Whittier to Anchorage

August, 2014 by Cindi

We decided to look for independent transportation from Whittier to Anchorage since our cruise ship ended there. I found ACT and decided to book them since it was cheaper than what the cruise ship was offering. We were most impressed. We found them easily in the terminal bldg, got on the bus and even got a tour of Whittier (narrated by the guide) since we were early for the prescribed time to get thru the tunnel. We had to change plans enroute to get off at the airport rather than downtown--no problem--the driver let us off. Overall, a great experience, great narration and would book them again!

Great scenic tour from Seward to Anchorage

August, 2014 by Rick

Holland America was charging $75 for a basic post cruise bus transfer, we decided to look for an independent transfer, and booked with ACT. What a great decision. For $48, we got a wonderful 3 1/2 hour narrated sightseeing tour by Richard aboard a comfortable coach. Our driver Anna was a skilled driver and gave us a smooth ride up to Anchorage. Richard was extremely knowledgeable on the history of the area as well as the flora, fauna and wildlife. On the way up to Anchorage, we were treated to wonderful views of glaciers, mountains and waterways. We were fortunate to be travelling on a sunny day and were able to view both beluga whales in Turnaround Sound, plus a nice view of doll sheep up on the hill. The transfer also included a 50 minute stop at the wonderful Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center (a $12.50 value), where we were able to get a close up view of many of the indigenous animals from the area including bears, moose, caribou, reindeer, musk oxen, bison and even an eagle.
So if you need transport from Seward to Anchorage, I would HIGHLY recommend taking this tour, you will not be disappointed.

A great way to spend a day after a cruise

August, 2014 by Jim

This was a great way to finish a cruise. The booking process was easy and the price was affordable - especially for a full-day tour. The pickup at the cruise port in Whittier went very smoothly. Trevor, our driver/guide kept us entertained and informed the entire time. Since many flights out of Anchorage seem to leave in the evening or at night, this would be a great way to fill the time between an early morning ship arrival and a flight much later in the day. We were staying a few extra days in Anchorage and it was great to be dropped off right at our hotel. While driving through Anchorage, Trevor gave us some recommendations for things to see, shops to visit and restaurants to try. We visited many of them and they were all great. The whole day was easy and relaxed. This was a good way to finish a cruise whether you're planning to spend more time in the area or gearing up for a long flight home.


August, 2014 by Christine

A group of seven booked a "cruise transfer trip" online from Anchorage to our cruise ship terminal in Seward AK with A Alaska Cruise Transfer - A.C.T. BIG BUS. The large coach bus picked us up within 20 minutes of the time established and we had a wonderful trip to Seward. We saw beluga whales in Turnagain Arm, and stopped at the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center on the way where we saw bears, eagle, caribou and even baby moose. What I liked best about the tour was that it was narrated. Our tour guide, Richard, was knowledgeable about the lands, wildlife, culture and history of the area, and all that we were seeing, and listening to Richard as the trip went along was a wonderful way to spend an afternoon. The bus dropped us of right at the terminal where they whisked our luggage away and we boarded our NCL ship for a wonderful trip!

The best bus company around.

August, 2014 by Zoe

I want to thank A.C.T. Big Bus. The airlines lost our luggage on Sunday. On Monday we were taking a shuttle to our cruise ship from our hotel stopping at the Wildlife Center, just when our luggage was going to arrive at the airport. I called them and was able to get Hank to get my luggage at the airport and drop it off at Whittier. We had a great bus driver Blake. It was raining out that day, but every time we stop the rain stopped. He told us all about Alaska and all the towns as we were going by. THANKS again.

Glad we booked with ACT!

August, 2014 by Amber

We decided not to pay the big bucks with the cruise line for a transfer from Whittier to Anchorage. Instead, we went with A.C.T. for our transfer on Aug. 20, 2014. We could not have been happier with our choice. Both the historical tidbits and the insight about the towns along the route were interesting, and the scenic stops and wildlife center alone made it worth it! Many thanks to our driver, Ann, and our tour guide, Richard, for the worry-free and fun ride!

Very happy with this trip.

August, 2014 by Stu

I had read reviews of this trip from Seward to Anchorage and all were generally pretty good. I concur with them.

Finding our bus was easy. A representative was standing right near the exit doorway of the terminal and he provided us with our bus number. On each bus a number was displayed, probably 2 feet tall on a brightly colored background.

I would have liked one or two stops along the highway on the Kenai Peninsula for photos. (I realize you have to keep this to a minimum in order to keep on schedule), but I think one or two could have worked. The views are incredible.

After the tour, one in my group realized they had left behind an item on the bus. Not an expensive item, but one of sentimental value. The driver, (Travis, I believe), delivered it to the hotel we were staying at.

I felt the length of time at each stop was nearly perfect and the selection of stops excellent. You had to remember that for us, we were already tired from a week of exploration. Everyone in my group was very happy with this tour. I recommend it without hesitation.

Extremely well done.

August, 2014 by Matt

Our cruise on Norwegian left from Whittier and we were flying into Anchorage so we needed to get to Whittier from Anchorage and after reading about a few options online I selected Alaska Cruise Transfers Whittier to Anchorage Tour with Narrated Wildlife Tour which included the cost of entrance to the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Park. The driver and narrator were excellent and while the stop at the Park was only 45min in order to maintain our schedule for arrival at the port by 4:45pm, it was well worth the extra $4 per person as we were able to see a variety of Alaskan wildlife in close range including lynx, fox, moose, caribou, elk, bison, black bear and grizzlies! Great price for a comfortable, prompt, professional and fun trip from Anchorage to our cruise port in Whittier. Highly recommended!

Best option for cruisers from Anchorage to Whittier

August, 2014 by Damian

This is a great way to get to cruise port. Pick up is at the airport, same place where baggage pick up and step on the bus. Is a 1.30 hrs long ride with a guide who shares all information possible on the way. There is a stop at a glacier to take some pictures and start flavoring your trip.

Getting where you need to go

August, 2014 by Preams

I was very happy with Alaska Cruise Transfers. We had a group of 22 and I have a disability. They were very helpful. The best part was the cheerful person helping me make arrangements.

Ya gotta have a ride

August, 2014 by Preams

The cruise ended in Whittier and we needed to pick up a car in Anchorage. These folks were helpful and easy to find. Comfortable motor coach and a driver who was very knowledgeable. even included a photo stop for us and put us into Anchorage on time.

Great driver/tour guide on our trip.

August, 2014 by Carol Ann

Our driver was full of wonderful interesting information about Alaska and Anchorage. I only wish I had written his name down to tell folks.

Very much worth the price

August, 2014 by Hadrons

My wife, my brother, his wife and I all did a cruise from Vancouver to Seward. Since our return to the Lower 48 was by plane out of ANC, we needed a way to get from Seward to Anchorage. After looking at several options (taxi, car rental, bus, rail), I decided on booking with Alaska Cruise Transfers (ACT), partly because of the schedule, partly because of the price, and partly because of the reviews on TripAdvisor. ACT delivered as hoped on all three.

There were people from ACT waiting in the ship terminal to help us find our bus - they were expecting us, and our particular bus was identified very clearly. Getting to and onto the bus was a very simple process. The bus left promptly at 8:00 am.

The speaker for our bus is VERY good at his job. He provided a lot of interesting facts about the areas that we drove through, some well-known, but many not so well-known. His delivery was polished and yet sincere, and also quite funny at times. All four of us enjoyed his talk, and I think that was the consensus of everyone else on the bus.

We stopped at a wildlife center along the way, and this was also interesting. Lots of big critters (bears, moose, caribou) were there to be seen up-close-and-personal. The stop also provided a nice break in the middle of the ~ 130-mile drive from Seward to ANC.

We booked our trip directly with ACT, and I think we therefore saved a fair amount of money compared to what it would've cost had we booked through the cruise line. Getting ourselves and our luggage onto the bus was a no-brainer; I really can't see a reason to get the cruise line involved.

I would definitely use ACT again.

Great way to get to Anchorage

August, 2014 by Heather

Four of us travelled from Whittier to Anchorage on the ACT Big Bus. I checked out several other companies, but this company offered an extra hour guided tour stops on the way to Anchorage. We were not catching a plane so no worries for time. Also, everyone is off the ships early and it seemed like a good way to spend morning getting to Anchorage. We stopped at the Wilderness Animal Conservation area...very interesting...they were even feeding the baby moose; as well as views of Glaciers and lots of interesting history of the area. The extra bonus is that it offered more and was less expensive than the cruise ship offering.

A narrated bus tour made the trip to the airport more fun.

August, 2014 by Bucxie

Our bus ride to the airport was well organized and comfortable. Our narrator's comments kept us entertained until our arrival at the airport.

The perfect end to a perfect vacation!

August, 2014 by Julie

We disembarked our cruise ship in Whittier and needed to get to the Anchorage airport. We chose a wildlife tour from ACT and we're SO glad we did!! It was the perfect ending to our vacation! The transfer from cruise ship to tour bus was seamless, they have a great system and it works well. We were never confused about where we needed to be or how to meet up with our tour bus. The tour itself was very enjoyable! The guide was friendly and informative, and really made the drive fun, and the driver was very friendly and capable. The scenery was beautiful, and we loved the animal sanctuary that we stopped at along the way. All in all, an excellent way to end our trip. I would highly recommend this transfer option!!

Great option for your transfer from Whittier to Anchorage.

August, 2014 by Depickett

Why pay the higher cruise ship transfer rates. He had a wonderful time on our scenic transfer from Whittier to Anchorage. Our tour guide was very friendly. The animal rescue was a great stop.

Great Service

August, 2014 by Zoe

I always worry when booking over the Internet, something so importan as getting to my cruise on time. However I had no need to worry at all. Got a phone call in my hotel room to say would be collected 15 mins early. Coach arrived promptly, stopped for a photo opportunity, and at wildlife park.enjoyed both. We had a tour guide who was very informative and amusing who passed the time on. Arrived at the cruise terminal promptly and had an amazing cruise. Would not hesitate in booking with them in the future :)

Happy ending of a cruise trip

August, 2014 by Changyi

It adds a very nice ending touch to our wonderful cruise trip. Our driver and guide was very nice and friendly, explained everything on the road, and gave us extra time to accommodate the seniors in the group. I would not hesitate recommending this tour to whoever wants to go from Seward to Anchorage.

We like the transfer

August, 2014 by John

It's easy, friendly and good service. Right after we get off the ship, bus is there waiting for us. The driver is very nice and told us a lot about Alaska and pointed out all the sceneries along the way. We have some seniors in the group and didn't move fast enough and he is always very patiently wait. We all enjoyed the trip very much.

The scenery was beautiful and the guides were very informative and interesting

August, 2014 by Mamading

We went on July. The guides were prompt and very informative. We stopped at a wildlife refuge and were able to see a lot of animals. We also learned a lot of history along the way

Great value and opportunity

August, 2014 by Kristen

Don't just take any transportation to the port from Anchorage, take this one! Great scenery and excellent narration with local information. Fun and informative. Be sure to take the one that stops at the Wildlife center -- a "do not miss!" If we would've had more time, I would've taken the tour that stops at the ski resort too!

Great transfer from Whittier!

August, 2014 by Catmg

Alaska Cruise Transfers employees were waiting for us after our cruise. They were friendly and helpful. We enjoyed the narrative on the route between Whittier and Anchorage. We would definitely use this company again!

Scenic pleasant trip

August, 2014 by Norry

Fast, easy, short stop for a very scenic outlook. Driver commentary interesting and amusing. There really was nothing that could have been better.

Anchorage, AK to Seward, AK

August, 2014 by Emily

We took ACT from Anchorage to Seward and had a fantastic experience! The bus was there at exactly the time on our schedule, it was clean, spacious and the driver and tour guide were very courteous. The stop to take pictures and to the Conservation were fantastic to break-up the road trip and the tour guide had really great information as we trucked along. I would definitely recommend this company if you need to take a transfer tour. Great job!

Great transfer from cruise to airport

August, 2014 by Mothra

ACT did a very good job getting our group from the cruise to the airport. Took the 7 hour tour which allowed us to see the sights around and in Anchorage. Richard, our guide was very knowledgeable and went above and beyond making sure all customer were comfortable and fully aware of the days schedule. Would highly recommend.

Comfortable and reliable

August, 2014 by Diving

Had a good experience with the transfer. Richard was a pleasure as a narrator and a host on the bus. Wild life center stop was a great addition, kids were excited to see all three bears roaming in the open.

We were in good hands

August, 2014 by Kameel

After having an awesome, unforgettable cruise, Alaska Cruise Transfers were waiting for us. Their driver, Trevor, was friendly, helpful, and a good guide, too. They kept to their schedule and gave us a day's worth of touring en route to Anchorage. Their website is helpful and their service excellent. If you are an independent traveller leaving a cruise, I recommend them.

Great Company

August, 2014 by Darrell

We took this charter from Anchorage to Whittier for the NCL sun. The driver was very nice. The driver called and looked for two people that were suppose to be on the bus. They finally showed up and we got going. Even though they were late finding us it was good that they waited around. I would of wanted the same thing. My Mother uses a wheel chair because she can not walk long distances. The driver had no problems getting the wheel chair out from storage when we stopped. We did the wildlife preserve and has a lot of animals but due to time crunches it was a short visit. The bus was comfortable and clean. They do have a restroom that is for use while in transit. I WOULD RECOMMEND THIS TRANSPORT COMPANY.

It's a very good way to go from Anchorage to Seward.

August, 2014 by Buzinho

It's a comfortable way to go to Seward , with the upgrade of the visit to see animals that only in this region can be seeing. I would certainly use this service again.

Very nice

August, 2014 by Patty

Knowledgeable and friendly. Arrived on time and delivered us to the port in a safe and timely manner. Great value, too.

Whittier to Anchorage

August, 2014 by Christian

The bus trip from Whittier to Anchorage was beautiful and the narration was helpful. I really enjoyed the 45 minute stop at the Nature Center. It was worth the price.


August, 2014 by Kim

We were sooo pleased with our trip from Whittier to Anchorage. We learned a lot about the area we traveled through. Rick was extremely knowledgeable and interesting. We enjoyed the stops for pictures and the wildlife park. It was an excellent value, it was like getting a tour and a transfer for the same price. We would definitely do it again. Thank you!

Great service... Great on every detail!

August, 2014 by Filiberto

We arrived to Anchorage and the buses where waiting for the passengers, very punctual and well organized; we found our bus very fast and the personnel was very friendly. When I said that they are EXCELLENT any other words are redundant!

Excellent way to begin our cruise vacation!

August, 2014 by Drgn

This was a great narrated transfer service from Anchorage (where you fly in) to Whittier (where you board the cruise ship). The trip was informative and very helpful, and Rich was a very knowledgeable and entertaining guide. We were picked up at a hotel about a block away from where we stayed in Anchorage, and made several stops to pick up/drop off others before we hit the road. Loved the stop at the wildlife preserve - only wish there had been more time! The company does a great job of making sure you get to the boat on time.

Great start to our cruise

August, 2014 by Leslie

After a week on our own in Alaska with a rental car, we dropped the car off at the airport Saturday morning. Rick, the guide, met everyone by the Alaska Air baggage area and waited with all of us for the bus. The bus had to go to hotels to pick up other passangers before noon, so the airport was the last stop. We made three stops in all on our way to Whittier, 2 stops for photos and a stop for aout 45 minutes at the Wildlife Conservation Center. Rick was an EXCELLENT guide, teaching us about Alaska on the ride to Whittier. I would recommend this cruise transfer over the cruise line bus. Not only is it less money, but you get to see bears, moose, caribou, lynx etc. on the way. We arrived at the ship in plenty of time for a late lunch and to unpack before dinner that night. I highly recommend taking the ACT BIg Bus and not having to worry about the tunnel. And Rick will entertain you on the ride - he was wonderful- great personality and very knowledgeable !

Great end to our cruise

August, 2014 by Debbie

We cruised into Seward and then had this tour booked to anchorage with Alaska tour transfers. Richard was excellent and did a wonderful job with the commentary throughout the whole trip. He was very knowledgeable and funny. We stopped off to the wildlife conservation park along with way to view the animals. The transfer was very reasonably priced. Highly recommend booking with them.

Highly recommend this tour

July, 2014 by Frugalmim

Very enjoyable ride and tour to Anchorage from Seward. Trevor offered an abundance of great information about the places we visited. The venue was relaxing and lunch was great. Thanks for the vegan sandwich!

Great tour after a great cruise

July, 2014 by Manda

Our driver, Trevor was an excellent guide on our transfer from Seward to Anchorage after our cruise. We did the full day tour and he was on time, welcoming, knowledgeable and a pleasure to speak to. Thanks so much for a great experience and some amazing views as we traveled one of the most scenic highways in the country!

Very efficient service

July, 2014 by Grant

Our flight into Anchorage from Vancouver was slightly late but they had phoned my mobile to check where we were. Found them at the stated meeting point once we got our bags. Bus journey to Whittier was great and very informative. The fare was reasonable and cheaper than Princess cruises tried to charge me. They dropped us off at the cruise ship baggage area. No complaints at all. Very friendly, helpful staff. Grant Bruce, Aberdeen, Scotland

Trevor, our driver and tour guide, was phenomenal!

July, 2014 by Pam

After being on a cruise up the inside passage, we took the A.C.T. Big Bus tour from Whittier, AK to Anchorage, AK. It was a fun filled way to spend the day prior to our flight home, which departed at 9:30 pm. Our cruise ended in Whittier in the morning and we easily found the A.C.T. Big Bus representative in the cruise terminal, and boarded the bus. Trevor shared a lot of information about the area and had such a delightful way about him. I would request to be on Trevor's bus again!

Good efficient service

July, 2014 by Travlin

I booked this service when my travel agent informed me that the service associated with the cruise line was full. I was not disappointed. It was easy to access following the disembark, and the travel time and arrival were as presented by the representative. It was also cheaper than that associated with the cruise line. The trip was the journey from Seward to Anchorage. The stop at the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center was a nice addition and the guide on board was knowledgeable of the area. I would definitely recommend this service.

Thanks to ACT for the trip:)

July, 2014 by Martha

First of all -- the bus worked nicely for us getting from Anchorage to Whittier -- no problem. However, when we got to Port, there were issues with the Union Port employees which wasn't the fault of ACT. All worked out fine.

With that said, I must share with you that Anna exceeded my highest expectations -- and mine are high because I work in the Customer Service world for an organization of about 100K employees. Anna delighted me. Let me explain. My husband left his ipad on the bus when we got to Whittier. He paniced. I said let me call ACT. I was so very fortunate to get Anna on the phone. I explained our situation and she immediately said: I think we'll find the ipad because the bus hasn't been cleaned yet. I'll personally manage this for you -- and she did! Within no time, she notified me the ipad was there. It didn't stop there. She said we'll ship it to you after you arrive in Van Couver so that the ipad doesn't get to your home before you do. And not to worry, I'll charge the shipping to your credit card on file if that works for you. And she made it happen -- like clockwork! ACT is very fortunate to have Anna who provides this level of attentive and person customer service. She gets a trip A+ from Steve and me for her help. Please ackowledge her for this outstanding customer experience.

Relaxing ride with interesting information shared about Alaska

July, 2014 by Cathy

Great way to travel from Seward to Anchorage. Just as convenient as the buses offered through the cruise lines at a more reasonable price. The bus was waiting for us right at the ship. We were dropped off at a hotel close to our car rental location. Then picked up within 5 minutes by our car rental company. Everything went very smoothly and we enjoyed listening to Richard and Dean tell us stories about Alaska as we rode. Very pleased!

Great on-time transportation

July, 2014 by Cliff

Knowledgable guide with a sense of humor. On-time service. What else can you want after a cruise? cliff

Transfer from cruise ship

July, 2014 by Sadie

We took this transfer from Seward to Anchorage. The staff was very good and one of the guys narrated so we learned a lot about Alaska during this trip. They take you straight to your hotel and this was very helpful. I would definately use them again.

Easy way to get to Anchorage

July, 2014 by Deb

This was a great way to get from Seward to our rental car company in Anchorage after our cruise. They dropped us off at the rental car company which saved us money compared to the rental car prices in Seward and at the airport. The bus had a representative in the cruise terminal and it was very easy to find the bus outside. The bus was very comfortable and the driver gave us information about the area and the towns we passed through all along the way. Great experience.

A good trip

July, 2014 by Sylvia

We needed to get from Anchorage to Whittier and came across Alaska Cruise Transportation through the internet. We are glad we did. Our driver, I think he was called Dave, was excellent and gave us more of a tour than just transportation to our cruise ship. He was informative and funny and we were given lots of information on what we saw, the history of the area and many other interesting things. We are glad we made the choice to use them.

Bus transportation from Anchorage to Whittier

On time - great narrative - a couple of interesting stops along the way - comfortable, modern bus, friendly staff. What more could you ask for? Exceeded my expectations.

Alaska cruise transportation

July, 2014 by Diggers

Picked up from the ship in Whittler and taken on a great & informative tour to Anchorage. Trevor, our driver, was very helpful and cheerful all the way. It was a great way to start our trip to Alaska. Thanks A.C.T

Anchorage to Cruise Ship Transfer

July, 2014 by Molfinos

The transfer from our hotel in Anchorage to the Island Princess in Whittier Alaska was very enjoyable. The bus was very clean and provided an excellent platform to see parts of Alaska we had not seen before. The driver and on board tour guide worked well together. They both has a good sense of humor, good presentation skills and were both were very informative. I thought the price was reasonable for the product delivered.

Can't be better

July, 2014 by D. L.

In July 2014 we travel from Anchorage Airport to Whittier to board Island Princess for a 7 day Cruise to Vancouver. The service provided by Alaska Cruise Transfers and Tours was excellent. The fee they charged was reasonable. The booking procedure was easy and they sent all necessary information and you can't go wrong. The bus was a little bit late but the guy at the airport kept us informed. The narration was full of interesting information. We did enjoyed the Wildlife Park and I recommend to everyone. We arrived the terminal ahead of schedule. They stopped right at the spot you drop your baggage.

Great bus ride. Very informative tour director. Loved the stop at the conservation area. Stopped at key points for pics. Great service and always with a smile.

Worth the money

July, 2014 by Next123

Originally we bought just a straight transportation from Seward to Anchorage airport (and actually it was much cheaper than the transportation offered by the cruise line), but because our flight departure was at 8pm we decided to upgrade our transportation to the all day tour. And we did not sorry about this.The route was very scenic, the bus driver/tour guide was very informative. They even provided a lunch...So, we are very satisfied...

ACT is a Good Deal

July, 2014 by Mr. Acquire

We used ACT to get from Anchorage to our cruise ship in Whittier. The fee was reasonable, less expensive than most, and included a stop at the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Park, something we wouldn't have gotten had we used the cruise line transport service. We were told that the airport pickup would be at noon, but it was really about 12:30 pm. No big deal. The on-board guide was pleasant and knowledgeable.

Alaska Cruise Transfer with Excursion

From Whittier on the Coral Princess July 5, 2014. Our guide's name was Trevor,
and he was GREAT!!, even better than the other guides we had on the cruise excursion ports.
He has all sorts of facts about all the spots he took us to and was terrific. It was an informative and pleasant journey to Anchorage. His heart was really into doing everything he could for all of us.We were on the smaller bus with 28 others and think we lucked out with that. Lunch included.

Professional to a "T"

July, 2014 by Steve

The Big Bus folks were at the Princess cruise terminal in Whittier to pick us up. The bus was full and there was a seat for everyone so do pre-reserve your seat. I did it all on the Internet.

Of paramount importance to me is always safety on these buses. The driver was very professional and safe. He kept his eyes on the the road whilst a guide did the talking and narrating as we went along.

We took the tour that stopped at a glacier outside if the tunnel and for about 45 minutes at the wildlife center. We were at the airport by 12:30pm. They will also drop you at your Anchorage hotel. I highly recommend them and would use them again for sure. About half the price of Princess doing the same transfer and just as easy.

Seward to Anchorage

June, 2014 by Vicki

Prompt, comfortable, narrated transportation with a stop at the conservation center along the way for an up close look at bison, Roosevelt elk, bear, moose, bobcats, eagles, caribou. A safe and scenic ride with excellent narration by Rich. Price is fair and more reasonable than the ship.

Whittier to Anchorage Narrated Transfer with Wildlife Park

June, 2014 by Roger

We took Alaska cruise from Vancouver to Anchorage from 6/14 to 6/21 and this last transportation from Whittier to Anchorage including the visit of wildlife park became the most memorable part of the trip. On 6/21, it was raining but the view was really beautiful from Whittier to Anchorage (better than any town we stopped during the trip). We did not see too many wildlife during the cruise but at the wildlife park we had seen many lovely one. The bus is also very unique because it came with a local narrator who has lots of knowledge about Anchorage and it made this trip very interesting. Definitely worth to take it.

Excellent information, excellent service

June, 2014 by Becky

I found this company on-line in my search to get a cruise transfer from Anchorage to Whittier to get our cruise. The instructions they provided were so exact and specific! From where to find them at the airport if you were going to Whittier; to what to expect and look for if you were getting off a ship, cruise line by cruise line. Our guide made every effort to locate all the guests and even waited for several whose flight was late. Unfortunately at one point we had to leave so that we could go through the tunnel into Whittier and not be held back. Sadly 2 passengers never showed up, though Richie went back into the airport again and again.
The trip to Whittier was about 1 3/4 hours long and our guide narrated the entire trip, pointing out animals and birds as we passed. He also gave us a lot of local information as we traveled. The bus was clean and comfortable and seat belts were provided.
The fee for this transfer was less than we were quoted if we used the cruise line's services.
I highly recommend this company.

Reliable, informative and good value

June, 2014 by Steelcure

Used ACT Big Bus from Seward to Anchorage. Price is substantially less than arranging transportation by cruise company. Walked off ship, took a left turn into white "barn" where my luggage was waiting and immediately saw guide with ACT sign. Checked in with him and took my luggage to the bus where driver loaded it. Bus trip included a live, interactive tour via a guide separate from the driver. Stopped at Wildlife Center for 45 minutes where we saw elk, bison, owl, red fox, caribou and black and brown bears. Trip ended at the Ted Stevens Anchorage Airport, though I believe it continued to hotels. Scenery was awesome, guide was knowlegeable and personable and the price was right.

Very helpful and professional

July, 2013 by Snowy

this company helped us out when we were left stranded in Seaward by ATG (Alaska Transportation Group) who cancelled our pre paid transfer back to Anchorage last minute. We were so grateful for their professionalism, care and reliability. The coach was extremely comfortable and scenery amazing, very friendly and informative driver too.

Great service provided for a group of 72

June, 2013 by Denise

I chartered two buses with Alaska Cruise Transfers and Tours for the 8 hour tour from Seward to Anchorage with my group of 72. It was a great trip! The drivers were professional. The Tour was exactly what we needed for our group. I am already working with them for my next group in June 2014. I recommend this company for group charters.

Whittier to Anchorage Best transportation option

September, 2013 by John

We had excellent experience for my family of 6 on our transportation from Whittier to Anchorage. We booked the service online and received explanation with instructions about how to find our driver. When we got off the ship, we found company's representative waiting by the sign "Alaska Cruise Transfer" inside the terminal, they had our names on the list and told us the bus number we were on. We found our bus outside the building and thought this was a very easy and efficient process.
I chose this company for their buses, and that is exactly what I got - a large, comfortable motor coach with restroom on board. The restroom was available to us for the whole trip and driver gave us a friendly tip to use it when in need due to bumps and curvy road.
Narration was excellent, driver/guide was knowledgeable, helpful, and friendly.
To get out of Whittier you have to go through a one lane tunnel and large buses get to go through first and did not have to wait in line like other vehicles.
We made a scenic stop for photos and visited the Wildlife Conservation Center, took photos of bears, moose, caribou, and bison. It was great as we love animals.
We had a lot of fun and thank Travis (our driver) and Alaska cruise transfer for good memories and a great way to end our cruise adventure. I highly recommend this company and hopefully return to Alaska for some more of its great scenery.

A pleasant way to spend a day

September, 2013 by Barbara

Our flight from Anchorage to Seattle did not leave until 18.45, so rather than hang around at the airport all day, we booked this all day tour. We boarded the bus at 08.15. There was a company representative at the cruise terminal baggage collection area. The weather was wild when the bus left Whittier at 08.45. To coincide with the tunnel opening at 09.00, they need to leave on time, so do not be late. It is a single lane tunnel and opens for 15 minutes every hour each way. The tunnel was built in WW2 as a train tunnel by the US Army. Now it can take both trains and cars, but only one way at a time. It's an icon from a past era.

Various stops on the tour - Portage visitors Center, Alyeska Cable Car, Alaska Conservation Center, plus various other stops for shopping views etc.

Lunch was nice sandwiches.

We did not have very good weather, which did dampen things a bit, but none of the stops were spectacular and we had been spoiled with stunning views on our recent cruise, but it was a pleasant way to spend a day.

The driver/guide was friendly and knowledgeable.

Great experience

September, 2013 by Lovely

My family took a trip to Alaska and used the Alaska Cruise Transfer. We had a great experience and will be using them again when we go back. We took the bus from the airport to get to our cruise in Whittier. I have a big family and we were all comfortable for our time on the bus. My son is tall 6'2 and he was even comfortable. The weather was nice and we were able to see the town as we rode. My family was able to get the discount because there were 11 of us. Me, my husband, our three kids and my sister and her family. This was a wonderful trip and we plan to go again soon.

Transfer from ANC to Whittier

September, 2013 by Jack

We signed up with Alaska Cruise Transfers to go from the airport to our cruise ship in Whittier. The trip included a stop at the Wildlife Conservation Center. Everything went according to schedule. The bus was a little late to the airport, but not a big deal. The weather was awful so the stop at the Wildlife Center was pretty short. All in all, I would use them again. The price was better than the cruise lines and you can't blame them for the lousy weather. 

Alaska Cruise Transfer made it easy

September, 2013 by Baldwin

A group of friends and I decided we would give it a shot and go take a cruise and see what Alaska has to offer. We arrived in Anchorage and secured transportation to the cruise ship docks in Whittier.

We had 9 people taking the transfer from Anchorage to Whittier to the Norwegian ship. It is usually $55 a person, but because we had a group over 6 we received a 10% discount. You have to love a discount.

We were picked up in Anchorage and brought to Whittier without incident. Everything was smooth and easy- thanks to Alaska Cruise Transfers and Tours. Using this company definitely made the transfer a stress free.

We saw little bit of Whittier prior to boarding the ship. It is a really small town- I think they said the population was less than 200.The only building of significance in Whittier was an old abandoned government building called the Buckner Building. It was a federal government building and is now empty, dilapidated, full of asbestos and crumbling. But you are only in Whittier to get on your cruise ship so no big deal.

Alaska is a great place to visit. The beauty of the scenery is unmatched compared to where I have been.

Nice way to the Cruise Ship

September, 2013 by Ben

We took Alaska Cruise Transfers from our hotel in Anchorage to Whittier cruise docks for an NCL cruise, stopping at the Alaska Wildlife Park on the way. The company boasts the only full-size bus service, and our coach that picked us up was indeed a nice full-size tour bus with onboard restroom that apparently nobody needed. The "Anchorage City Tour" part was driving around to other hotels to pick up passengers, and not going around downtown. That was fine with us as we had already seen downtown Anchorage the day before. The bus went to a few other hotels and then hit the Seward Highway south. The narration on the way to Whittier was informative and humerous, played off a CD of a professional-sounding spokesman timed to narrate the place the bus was passing through. The driver was a young Anchorage native who chimed in some comments along the way. We stopped at a pull-off for a photo opportunity, the animal park, and at Portage lake for another photo opportunity. The weather was overcast and occasionally rainy, so being outside wasn't great, but the drive was still scenic and interesting. The last "thrill" was going through the 2.7 mile Anton Anderson tunnel. The company perfomed exactly as they said, and we were quite satisfied with the service. They were as cheap as the cruiseline, and they picked us up right at our hotel, so we didn't have to go back to the airport to get the cruiseline's transfer bus, nor miss the wildlife park, which was somewhat interesting.

Great Experience

August, 2013 by Ananya

I recently took my first cruise and needed a way to transfer from Anchorage to Whittier so I could board the ship. Not only was the price right (cheaper than other services I researched) but there was an added bonus of having a tour, as well.

Since this was my first trip to Alaska and my first cruise, I wanted to see everything and I was not disappointed. Honestly, I could have used the cruise line's transfer service but it was just a ride with my suitcases and that didn't seem all that fun. The ACT service provided a narrated tour that described what you were seeing and provided a few stops along the way. This was the best part ... We stopped at this animal conservation park that had Alaskan animals. I know it might sound silly but I've always wanted to see a moose in real life and I got to do that and now have some excellent pictures to share with my family & friends. These creatures are huge awe-inspiring so I'm so glad I got to see this!

This was a trip for just the hubby and I so we were looking to have every experience we could and this transfer packed in a lot that we might not have been able to otherwise see. The bus also stopped at a glacier park (which my husband enjoyed more than me) and we went through this long tunnel that I found boring but my husband also thought was pretty cool.

Another reason why I chose this service is because they advertised a bathroom on the bus. This may sound like a small thing but for me, this was crucial because I like to plan for all contingencies. In the end, I didn't actually have to use it but just knowing it was available helped me to relax and enjoy the ride.

All in all, a great service for a necessary trip that had to be made to get to my vacation. They transferred me right to the cruise ship and delivered on everything I expected.

A highlight of an Alaskan trip

June, 2013 by Rob

Our group ended our cruise in Seward and chose Alaskan Cruise Transfers full day trip to take us to Anchorage in preference to the exceptionally expensive transfers offered by the Cruise ship companies. The whole trip exceeded our expectations. Our driver, Brandi, was waiting for us in the terminal and quickly loaded our luggage into the back of a very new looking 30 seater coach. The seats are a little on the small side, but we had a comfortable journey and the windows were large so we had good views. Brandi was a fantastic guide, with a great knowledge of Alaska and was able to handle difficult passengers who consistently returned late to our bus, with professionalism. Sightseeing stops included 'Exit Glacier at Mt Spenard National Park and an Alaskan Wildlife Centre with bears, bison, elk and eagles among other wildlife. We could have done with more time here as there was so much to see. From there, we went on to the ski resort of Alyeska and an amazing tram trip up the mountain which was spectacular. We also were given a packed lunch there which we were able to eat at the top of the ski lift. Brandi kept up an interesting commentary to accompany the taped one . We passed Turnagain Inlet and many scenic mountains, with plenty of opportunity to take photos. At Anchorage, we had a brief tour around the city and were given suggestions by Brandi on places to see, shopping and entertainment before being dropped off at our hotel. I would fully recommend this company's transfers which were also reasonably priced and all-inclusive.

A Great Transfer

May, 2013 by Elora

This was the best transfer we've ever had. Our driver was funny and informative. We went through the longest vehicle tunnel in North America...pretty cool. Saw a neat candy store...lots of yummy temptations. And spent some time at the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center where we were able to see a lot of Alaskan wildlife up close. It was well worth the $39.

Sunshine on a Rainy Day!

Jul 02, 2012 by John

After ten days of fantastic weather all the way from Vancouver we disembarked at Whittier on a cold, grey, rainy day prompting one of our group to remark that she "would have to return in summer". The weather did not improve but our mood did after we met our guide/driver, John, who would provide all the sunshine we needed! Our family group of 16 had booked the all day Whittier to Anchorage tour with drop off at the airport and at a downtown hotel, It was a lot cheaper than the cruise ship transfer and proved once again to be more personalized and convenient. John quickly loaded our 28 seater and we were off long before the cruise ship bus. All the stops were interesting and the children really enjoyed the Wildlife Refuge and feeding the Deer at the Wildberry Farm, even though we often had to take refuge from the rain ourselves. The Tram Ride at the Alyeska Ski Resort was great fun although our view was mainly the inside of a cloud. The highlight of the day was undoubtedly the willing, accommodating, cheerful demeanor of John. We would recommend Alaska Cruise Transportation without hesitation or reservation. Many Thanks to them and to John

Wonderful Experience!

Jun 08, 2012 by Jeffery

If you are looking for a transfer from Anchorage to your cruise ship in Whittier, this is the company to use. They delivered our party of 15 from Airport in Anchorage to Whittier without any worries. We found our driver at the designated area at the airport with no problems and right on time. The bus was actually a large motor coach which is why we choose this company (we prefer to travel in large coaches due to comfort and safety). Our driver was very friendly and helpful with our luggage and made sure we were taken care of our whole trip. We chose the trip with stops along the way, which were great (Beluga Point, Wildlife and Glacier). We arrived at our Princess ship on time and were dropped off directly at the luggage drop off. We have learned lots of history and fun facts about Alaska from the audio tour. My family was very pleased with the service that I had booked for them and thanked me for the great choice of company for a very important part of our vacation - connecting transportation to our cruise line.

Nice way to travel from Anchorage to Seward

Jun 01, 2012 by sevilla

Having already busted the budget with the train ride from Anchorage to Denali, we decided to use this service for their four-hour tour/transfer from Anchorage to Seward. The one-hour stop at the Wildlife Center was interesting and was our only chance to see Lynx (came up short at Denali NP). Efficient/punctual service. If you are departing on a cruise, this option gives you much more time to explore Seward (which is quite interesting) than the late-arriving train.

Nice way to travel from Seward to Anchorage

May 31, 2012 by Cathy

My son and I were on a 7 night cruise that ended in Seward Ak. I started looking for options for getting to Anchorage for our flight that night. I found Alaska Cruise transfer. They have several options from direct service to longer tours with stops at attractions. We chose the 8 hour tour and it was wonderful. Our driver James was great and had lots of stories and jokes to keep us entertained. We did not leave on schedule as some folks were late off the ship. We stopped at a state park and walked to Exit Glacier. We also stopped at Nature center. Could have used a little more time there as we basically had to run through. We also went to MT Aleski and took the tram to the top. We also got a delicious sandwich along the way. It was a great way to spend the day getting to Anchorage. I would highly recommend this company.

Outstanding customer support!

May 27, 2012 by stefanie

I wanted to share my experience with this company and how accommodating they were. I had made a reservation with Alaska Cruise Transfers online on their website. I have received a confirmation e-mail instantly. I booked for 8 people for my friends for travel from Anchorage to Seward well in advance. About one week prior to our travel date we found out that 2 people in our party could not make it to Alaska. They cancelled their cruise due to medical problems. I had called the Alaska Cruise Transportation office and asked if I could get a refund for those people. They were very accommodating, they did not ask many questions and said that this will be refunded because of the medical circumstances. They sent me an updated e-mail confirmation and refunded the difference. The rest of our party took the transfer on our scheduled date and very much enjoed the whole experience. The bus was large and comfortable, the narration interesting, the driver was friendly and caring. After we were dropped off at our hotel Holiday Inn Express, and after the bus departed, I discovered that I had lost my camera case (not something very valuable, but I had my camera's battery in it and I really liked that case). I had called the office, and asked if they had found something like this on the bus. They had called me back after a few minutes and said they found it. Their office staff personally delivered my camera case to my hotel! Needless to say I was very impressed with the level of service, understanding and accommodating of the traveller's needs. They really cared about my experience with them!

Amazing Transfer and Tour, MUST DO!

Jul 05, 2012 by Ben

We used Alaska Cruise Transfers and Tours for our transfer with a short tour from Seward to Anchorage after we disembarked our cruise this August. This was a highlight of our trip. The whole experience was very smooth, comfortable and accommodating. We disembarked the cruise ship and found our driver by our luggage inside the terminal. Our driver, Mike, helped us to the bus and loaded our luggage. We seated inside the bus while waiting for other passengers who reserved the same transfer/tour. The bus was very comfortable, one of those large motor coaches that are high, with large seats and restroom (which was necessary for our parents and very helpfull on a 4 hour trip). At our scheduled departure time and once all the passengers were seated in the bus, we took off on Seward Hwy, it was truly a breathtaking drive! All the mountains, lakes, glaciers, forest and so on were absolutely gorgeous (we don't have anything like this in our home state). The recording on the bus was very informative, sometimes funny, and a delight to listen to. It had an in depth history, many details, and was intresting to follow all the facts and points on the highway. We had stopped for a picture break, then made a stop at the Wildlife Center Park. This was our only chance to see the wildlife - bears, moose, caribou, lynx, deer, and bison. Our children really enjoyed it, especially the baby moose! We were dropped off at the hotel of our choice which was the Sheraton in downtown Anchorage right at the scheduled time.
We trully enjoyed the beautiful drive, detailed tour, our very accommodating and friendly driver, safe and comfortable coach with restroom, and timely/puctual service and we would recommend anyone to use this company for your cruise transfer and a must do short tour!

"Loved the all day tour"

Nov 19, 2011 by Tim

Our family of 6 booked the all day tour from Seward to Anchorage. It was so worth the money! We were met at the cruise ship terminal by our driver Renee, who directed us to the comfortable bus outside the cruise ship terminal. After she found all of the groups, she proceeded to give us a tour of Seward, we then had a blast on a short walk to the Exit Glacier, where we took great pictures and got pretty close to the glacier. I have to say the weather was sunny and warm, it was the best day to do this tour. We then proceeded on a very scenic drive to the Wildlife Park, we spend about 1 and 15 min there, looking at some Alaskan wildlife up close. We then went up the Alyeska tram to experience a breathtaking scenery of glaciers, mountains, and ocean. We were provided sandwich, chips, and drink. We then drove to Anchorage where Rennee gave us a tour with stops at various places. We had a wonderful time. It was MUCH cheaper than the cruise transfer. Everything was included, we did not have to pay anything but tips to the driver. Our driver was safe, very pleasant, and informative. We were very satisfied with this experience. It was a great finish to our Alaskan vacaion.

“Great Customer Service”

Sep 09, 2011 by Janice

I was impressed with this company. When we encountered some glitches in our travel plans, Ana the office manager, took care of them swiftly and efficiently. The company has a great understanding of travelers' needs and strives for customer satisfaction. The cruise lines charge three times as much as the tour bus, which includes a scenic stop and interesting commentary along the way. I would not hesitate to recommend Alaska Cruise Transfers and Tours.

“Educational enjoyment”

Aug 08, 2011 by Travelbug

We really didn\'t know what to expect from this trip except we would be seeing scenery and have a change to stop at a wilderness park and receive a snack for a more economical price than the cruise lines charge. The bus was very nice with and the driver was very knowledgeable in educating us about Alaska\'s people, weather, economy, history, and landscape. At one point a recording was played to educate us further on Alaska\'s history, it could have been louder. The wilderness stop was really great. There was not enough time to see the whole complex. However, overall for what we did experience it was a great start to our vacation.

“Excellent Customer Service, Fair prices, On time, Comfortable Transportation”

Jul 25, 2011 by Pam

We are a family of 5 from Florida and saved a lot of money. I am happy to say that not only is Alaska Cruise Transfers and Tours is a Reputable Company but Ana their main contact is awesome. She answered all my questions and handled our transportation/ luggage from our Hotel- Holiday Inn Express in Anchorage to Port Whittier to board the Coral Princess on time and in a warm, clean, and comfortable Motor Coach.
Each Seat was taken, so book early. We took the 3 hour Tour and the stop at Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center was well worth it. Beyond the BBB even The Wildlife Center confirmed that Alaska Cruise Transportation have been bringing their passenger busses for more than several years. I am a cautious person and know this because I always check things out thoroughly. Pam Perez

“Good service”

Jun 14, 2011 by Traveler

I came off a cruise and didn't want to pay the exorbitant price the cruise ship charged for a transfer from Whittier to Anchorage. I googled and found this company, but no real reviews (everyone who has reviewed this company has only written one review on this site, kinda fishy). So I took a chance and booked the three hour wildlife tour anyways. The bus was actually full with about 52 people. It was on time at the cruise terminal. The driver (I forget his name, but he drives school buses during the year) provided good commentary. We stopped at the conservation center for about 45 minutes. That wasn't long enough. An hour probably would've been better. There was, however, no tour of Anchorage unless you count driving around the downtown area dropping people off. All in all, I was pleased with the service. I would use it again if I needed a transfer from Whittier.

“On Time, Interesting Stops, Not a Shuttle”

Feb 14, 2011 by Angela

I chose this Alaska Cruise Transfers for my party from a web search. The web site and quick and courteous email response was encouraging, and the cost per person was less than the cruise-ship company price. I was relieved when the driver arrived at our hotel at 1 pm on August 28, 2010, for the 65-mile trip from Whittier to Anchorage. It was more than just a transfer. We stopped along the way at three interesting places: a whale watching spot off the highway, a animal refuge where we got up close to magnificent animals, and a small state museum with high-tech exhibits. The small bus carrying some two dozen passengers was reasonably comfortable and easy to climb in and out of. The driver was in touch with the office by cell phone when necessary. He was amiable and answered questions about living in Alaska for us first-time visitors. Soon we were at the amazing tunnel drilled through the mountain that took us to the shores of Prince William Sound and our ship, with time to spare. It was a nice start to our adventure.

Incredible Value!

Oct 10, 2010 by Mike Hendricks - Atlanta, GA

I have used Alaska Cruise Transfer in June of 2010 to get to my Royal Princess cruise ship and I have to say that it was an incredible value. Not only did I get a lower price while traveling in style – I also got to experience beautiful sightseeing tour offered by company. In my book this is a truly incredible value provided by very punctual and courteous folks behind it.
