Had a good time and tour was great and well worth it..
Can't remember the guides name, but he reall was very very good. An excellent day that wasn't to be missed. The information given was first class and the scenery spectacular
We had an awesome time! Our guide was great and she took us to the best spots. I highly recommend this tour.
It was excellent. Our guide Owen was very knowledgable and was aware of participants fitness levels. We saw a bear which was very exciting and the guide handled the situation in a very professional manner. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
It's great to get off the boat and get your feet on the ground....and we got out feet on the ground! Quite a hike!Somewhat challenging for a true novice but not overly so. The walking stick that was provided was great help especially after all the rain. Our guide Nate was delightful. Really glad we chose this as our side trip in Skagway.
Great tour. Our tour guide Jessica did a wonderful job. She was very outgoing and very knowledgeable. She was very informative and gave us plenty of photo opportunities. I highly recommend this tour! The price was fantastic and worth every penny and then some! She took pics of me and my wife standing in front of both the "Welcome to Alaska" and "Welcome to the Yukon" signs!! I will definitely consider doing this tour on my next cruise to Alaska!
We had a great time on this tour. Our guide was very friendly and knowledgeable and made stops with awsome scenery. When we compaired our experience with people who took other tours we went further and made more stops. This is a tour I will do again the next time I'm there.
The trip was fun but it wasn't the best excursion we did in Alaska.
The trail is much more challenging than described and I am physically fit. We had people in their 60's who had quite a challenge with it.
Bring water you will want it.
Don't wear sneakers
Tyler our driver and tour guide made the tour operator the BEST. Very knowledgable
The Skagway shore excursion: half-day tour to the Yokon border (6 and half hours) was misleading. The round trip only takes 3 hours. We were misled under the impression that the whole trip was 6 and half hours so that we didn't have any additional planning for the rest of the day. if we would know it's 3 hours, we will not book the trip. We will definitely book a trip to accommodate the ship arrival and departure time to effectively utilize our vacation time. This is definite a misleading on the website!
The trip was awesome and our guide, John was fantastic! Loved it!
My wife, Julie, and I loved this tour. The hike was perfect and Jim the guide was a fount of information and knowledge. It was great to learn the fauna that was edible and that which could kill you. Jim gave us samples along the way as he pointed out interesting facts along the trail. Julie has had surgery on both feet and we are approaching 50. The hike was the perfect degree of difficulty for us along with the 65ish grandmother that was in our party of 6. Jim's aid, Michelle, was a delight to work with and she cared very tenderly for an older hiker who was with us. Between the two guides, we were regaled with all matter of facts, culture, and customs. We were made to feel like we were just out for a hike with good friends enjoying a day on the trail. After completing our two hour hike we floated down the river and were able to come withing a few feet of a Bald Eagle sitting in a tree just feet away from her huge nest. The shore side snack after the float was a treat too. Smoked salmon, juice and crackers were a perfect end to a wonderful experience. THANKS To ALL The CREW!
BEAUTIFUL hiking trail and very scenic and relaxing rafting float.
Loved it!! Great guide:) let us take our time and enjoy the scenery.
Great experience! I was afraid the beginning of the hike would be too steep for my eight year-old, but she did really well. It was a gorgeous hike with such lush and dense landscapes. I felt like we were in a magical forest. I would do this again!
Our tour guide,Owen,was excellent....knowledgeable as well as helpful. Chilkoot trail was beautiful but the first part of hike a little more rigorous than expected. The raft trip back was good and we were well outfitted to stay dry.
Bob was an excellent tour guide, very knowledgeable of the area. The hike had a couple steep parts but nothing the average person couldn't handle. The rafting was fun. We saw a couple bald eagles and lots of bear skat but no actual bears. I would definitely recommend this tour and getting it through viator saved some money over getting it through the cruise line.
We were collected as arranged by Jim our guide for the trip. Jim gave a us information about the area whilst driving to the start of the trail. Jim was very knowledgeable about the area, flora and fauna he had been a Guide/ranger for the National Parks Service. We had a group of 8 with mixed ability. The hike was 2 miles with some short steep sections on forest tracks. The pace was set by the slowest person, there was no rush and lots of interesting information shared about the history of the route relating to the Gold Rush period.
We walked to the start of the rafting float and were provided with wellington boots and buoyancy aids and instruction about getting into and out of the raft and other safety information. The float was gentle and scenic with more information shared about the area. at the end of the float we had some light snack of smoked salmon and cheese and biscuits and water.
Really enjoyed the trip, interesting information, light exercise, saw Bald Eagles, bear scat- no bears.
This was one of our favorite days during the cruise portion of our Alaska Adventure. Our guide, Owen, was knowledgeable, friendly, and made subtle accommodations for members of our group who were experiencing difficulty with the steep terrain. This excursion truly gave us a sense of what the early miners might have experienced on this historic trail.
Wish we had done the full day, ur staff was great. Thanks for a great tour.
It was outstanding. The guides were very pleasant and knowledgeable and extremely professional!!! The scenery was beautiful and my family enjoyed it tremendously
This was a great trip. The highlight was seeing a bear cross the road. The guide was great.
This is a great tour for its value. It's really a scenic tour along the areas that border Canada and US with a chance to get off of your coach, take pictures and admire the great views. It's relaxing and quite informative.
Driver was very pleasant, but wish we could have gone a bit further to at least get a snack or a bite to eat.
We have visited Skagway before and found the experience to be OK
We booked this tour with another couple, who were our traveling companions on our Alaska Adventure. We looked forward to enjoying their company in a jeep such as the one in the picture above, and we also looked forward to seeing the kind of scenery shown in the same picture. Unfortunately, our jeep broke down in a mud hole (possibly man-made) on a trail without any scenic views. Without going into detail, we saw no wildlife, no scenery, and ultimately, my husband and the couple with whom we were traveling were separated into three other jeeps with people that we did not know. In addition, another of the jeeps also overheated, but was luckily resuscitated by a guest who was an auto mechanic. We made it to the "snack location", where we saw yet another jeep which had broken down from a previous tour. By this time, so much time had been wasted during the breakdown that we were forced to return home so that one of the families would not miss their train connection from Denali.
We returned on the same trail, but the adventure did not end there. As we were returning to the tour base camp, yet another jeep was being hauled off to Fairbanks for repair. It is no wonder that there was not a contingency plan for extra jeeps in case there was a breakdown. Once we arrived at the base camp, we were whisked back to the Princess Wilderness Lodge.....my husband was in one van, and I was in another. This "adventure" cost us and our traveling companions a total of $580. It was not my favorite day in Alaska.
Doing what: Off-Road Jeep Adventure in Denali National Park
This by far was the best excursion that we took in Alaska, the only thing that I would say is this is not for the casual walker, the hiking portion was much more difficult than the information indicated, I live in Florida and walk regularly but this was much more treacherous. The float was so worth the effort it was beautiful and so peaceful absolutely loved it!!
