Everything about this trip was wonderful. Our leader, Brook, was so informative and pleasant. She kept a good pace for our small group. Would recommend.

This was a great tour. The first mile of the 2 mile hike was a little steep, but our tour guide, Bob, had us take breaks so it wasn't too hard. There were lots of tree roots on the trail to avoid, but Bob showed us where to step to we wouldn't fall. He explained a lot about the rainforest trees and plants. The second mile of the trail was mostly flat and easier, but just as scenic. The float on the river was also very good. Bob showed us how to get into the raft so we wouldn't fall. As we floated down the river he pointed out bald eagles and other wildlife. For a short while we were followed by two harbor seals. So cute. At the end of the trip we got a light snack. The ride in the van to the trail was also scenic and Bob told us more interesting stories about the area. It was a great trip and worth the price.

We had a fabulous time. The hike was pretty strenuous, but our guide, Gann Brewer, went out of his way to help. He made the excursion fun and exciting, keeping us safe, yet having fun. On the way back, he pointed out fun facts about Skagway and dropped us off wherever we wanted to go. I would highly recommend the trip.

Very enjoyable with a knowledgeable guide who stayed with us on the hike and float trip. It's good to get some exercise after the feasting on a cruise ship.

Our guide, Bob, was amazing. He was so knowledgeable, helpful, friendly and ask around awesome! He looked like an old sourdough which only added to the experience, lol. Thanks for a great trip!

Owen, our tour guide, was fabulous. It was obvious he enjoyed what he did and was highly knowledgeable and patient with the kids in our group. He was professional and very good with all of the different plants and berries along the way. Company appeared well-organized and was timely. Highly recommend

Bob was our guide. He was informative about the history of the town of Skagway as we drove through it pointing out good places to shop, eat, and do. He gave us a wonderful history lesson as we hiked the trail and had us ready to react appropriately when we saw a bear. Sadly we never did see that bear. The scenery on the trail was amazingly beautiful. And to think we hiked early June with only some of the plants beginning to peek out and ferns just showing some early fronds. I would love to take this hike again in late June or early July to see the changes in this temperate rain forest. There might be more bugs then and we really didn't see any.
The float boat trip back was fun but cold but that's just the way it was. My boots evidently had holes in them so my socks got wet. Might want to bring an extra pair if it's a cold day.
All in all my husband and I really enjoyed the excursion and would highly recommend it to anyone who wants to walk in the same steps as the gold rushers or who enjoys beautiful green forest. It really was exceptionally beautiful.

This was one of my favorite excursions while in Alaska! Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable. The hike felt great after several cruise ship dinners. It was nice to get in some exercise. The float offered amazing views. I would do this again in a heartbeat. Don't miss out on this. Well worth it!

You need far more stamina than they suggest. The hike is extreme. They did a fantastic job to accommodate us as we bailed out on the hike after 50 yards straight uphill and they brought in other guides to take us on a more normal hike and we hooked up with the rafting later. Good folks here.

It was a beautiful drive and then hiking was fun. Topped of the hike with the raft trip on a full river for 45 minutes and was treated to salmon on crackers. We asked the driver to drop us off at the local Brewery for a late lunch and made it a great day. Thanks

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.

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.

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.

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.
