What Cruise Transfer is best for me?

What Cruise Transfer is best for me?
By Andrew on May 10, 2015

One question we hear time and time again from our Cruise guests, is which Cruise Transfer is Best for Me? To answer this question we offer this blog to explore with you the difference between rail, coach, and small-group guided tours.

Rail Cruise Transfers

Our friends at the Alaska Railroad do a fantastic job showing our guests the very best of Alaska. It's one of the reasons we recommend them and build tour packages for our guests that include trips on the Alaska Railroad. And what's not to love about the nostalgia, ease and beauty of traveling by train? 

Another excellent aspect of taking to the rails is that your adventure doesn't have to end at the first Whistle Stop - the Alaska Railroad has great trains that span our region every season of the year. Learn more about Denali Star, Coastal Classic, Glacier Discovery, Hurricane Turn and Aurora Winter trains here

Coach Transfers

For those who love a big bus feel, Coach Transfers are the cat's meow. They generally have big windows, lots of leg room, and the opportunity to brush shoulders with a large group of people, which is great for socializing as our grand Alaska land passes by. Additionally, many cruise operators offer in-network coach transfer options.

Small Group Guided Tours

This is the option we love best, because its what we live to do. We bring Alaska to our guests in a boutique-style setting from the comfortable seats of our Freightliner Sprinter Vans. We offer lots of leg room and tons of window space. Our small group guided tours are a great way to get away from the crowds and at the same time, do the things that you want to do - with small groups we can answer questions and customize the itinerary to match your need for exploration and adventure. 


No matter which way is right for you, we'll be happy to assist you in setting it up. Contact us and we'll get you started on everything from cruise transfers to multi-day curated travel trips. It's what we love to do at Salmon Berry Tours!
