Premier Alaska Tours adds 2 Prevost H3-45s

Posted on October 10, 2012

Premier Alaska Tours took possession of two new 2013 Prevost H3-45 coaches in July, part of a major push to expand and upgrade its sizeable fleet.

When the ambitious plan is completed, the Anchorage-based company will have more than 50 Prevosts in its stable of 75 motorcoaches and support vehicles. The operation will be used primarily for tours of “the Great Land,” which Premier Alaska Tours runs year-round in conjunction with tour operators in the Lower 48.

The company also provides some charter or scheduled service, primarily to transport workers traveling between North Slope mining, pipeline and oil facilities, the so-called “man camps” where they reside, and other parts of the vast state.

Premier Alaska Tours, founded in 1995, is owned by Peter Grunwaldt and Tim Worthen. Its staff of 30 full time employees grows to over 200 during the busy season as travelers come from all over the world to witness the mystery, spectacle and color of this unique state.
