I have used Alaska Cruise Transportation – Big Bus to get to my Royal Caribbean 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. 10/10
I chose ACT Big Bus 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. The driver arrived at our hotel at 12 pm, for the 65-mile trip from Anchorage to Whittier. 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 glacier lake. The big bus was very comfortable and easy to climb in and out of. The driver was extremely friendly and knowledgeable. He answered questions about living in Alaska for us first-time visitors and provided lots for facts in a very entertaining way. 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 great start to our adventure.
