This was a very enjoyable hike. There were some steep spots but it was very beautiful. Saw many bald eagles and a porcupine. Our guide "Sid" was very knowledgeable about the area.
Guide knew so much about the area and was so laid back. The hike was great and so was the float back.
Great experience, guide Sid was extremely informative ,friendly and attentive
The trip was very good. Our guide did an excellent job explaining the points during the hike into the start of the float. She was gave very good answers to the children in our group about the nature along the trail. The float down the river was also good and informative. I highly recommend this trip. The hike in over the start of the Chilkoot through the forest indicates the type of trail the early Miners experienced.
Great way to see the surrounding area of Skagway. The guide was very informative and entertaining
Although the day was overcast, cool with light showers we had a fantastic hike. Our guide was very knowledgeable and looked after us well. It was just amazing to think that we walked on part of the trail which was the main route to the Klondike during the gold rush era, although back then the path would have been 100 times worse. Our float trip was great and we were fiting out with all the necessary equipment. We aware that you probably will get a bit wet from sitting on the edge of the raft.
Good pick-up, friendly and very informative guide. Was able to answer all our questions regarding flora and fauna along the route. Excellent!
What a thrill to hike the beginning of the historically so significant Chilkoot Trail! Our guide, Andy, was so informative and such a skillful hiker and river pilot. His courtesy and awareness was so important guiding a group of mainly 60 years + adventurers.
This was the best excursion! We really felt like we were experiencing the Alaskan rainforest close up and personal! It was so beautiful and our tour guide, John, was knowledgeable and friendly. The float back down the river was scenic and relaxing after the fantastic hike. I have already recommended this trip to friends and will continue to do so in the future! Many thanks for the wonderful experience!
Very fun, easy hike. Great for taking pictures, especially on the river. Amazing views!!! The guide was very knowledgeable and entertaining. The hike is about 1.8 miles, which is not very difficult, and the river float was about 40-50 minutes. Got some snacks at the end too! Some uphill walking involved, but with plenty of breaks to catch your breath. I would say this is a good tour for people who are beginners at hiking :)
Where to begin! Bob was the perfect guide, from the grand history of the region, to the smallest details on the trail and on the water, he left no stone unturned. His enthusiasm for the region, and for sharing his wealth of knowledge on the same was intoxicating. It was an amazing experience to say the least. We plan on returning to experience more of the Chilkoot region in the very near future, and will recommend this tour to all we know.
Thank You so much

The tour was great, and Bill was an excellent guide. He was incredibly knowledgable about the local area, wildlife, flora and fona. He really took his time as we slowly made our way up and down the terrain, and he made sure we paused long enough to enjoy the scenery. He was also very safety concious. He really made the trip for us. My wife and I ended up being the only two guests on the tour which made it even better.
