As advertised, picked up at our hotel in an orange H1, modified to include high position seating for the passengers (see photo). Quite a thrill for anyone who has never ridden in a Hummer...and we hadn't.

Driver/guide (Brad) was very friendly...immediately inquired about our specific interests...we told him large animals (bears, moose, and others) and he said he couldn't guarantee anything, but we would definitely look. Started out with a few stops that he had selected (were standard I presume) like the University overlook (couldn't see McKinley due to weather), and the Large Animal Research Station. Then we set out on a series of back roads, few paved, most not, but that's part of the romance of being in the H1! Stopped periodically looking in fire breaks and open fields for our animals of interest, but, alas, came up empty. Certainly not for lack of trying, but we were a little disappointed. We also stopped at relatively secluded spot to see the Trans-Alaska Pipeline, of which Brad was quite knowledgeable.

A little pricey for essentially a 4 hour car ride (with a few stops in between, e.g., at the Pipeline), but entertaining for a family.
