At John Hall’s Alaska, the safety and health of our guests have always been a top priority, even before the pandemic. We adhere to the highest standards when it comes to procedures and protocols for cleaning and disinfecting our motorcoach fleet, and follow standards recommended by the CDC using EPA-approved products:


Guests begin every day on a fully sanitized John Hall’s Alaska motorcoach. Throughout the day, and during rest stops, your tour manager will sanitize multiple touchpoints in the coach to help protect your health. At the end of the day, the motorcoach receives detailed disinfection before the beginning of the next day’s activities. Easy access to sanitizing wipes on board assists everyone in helping to keep touchpoints sanitized.
