This was absolutely our best excursion on this trip. Don't ride the train, ride the bus. It goes through the Yukon and into Canada. We had numerous stops for great photos, which you won't on the train. Our driver, Dan, was so knowledgeable that I feel like I have lived in Skagway all my life. We did the dog cart and even though there was not any snow, my dog loving husband loved it. My only complaint is that you can get this excursion cheaper after you dock.

Really had an enjoyable day even accounting for the bus ahead of us bursting into flames and us having to return to Skagway for 2 hours before heading off again. The day was the frist fine day in six weeks, the autumn colours were out in force in the mountains, there was snow on the mountain tops as they had had theri first snow of the season only a week before and the stop in the Yukon was great. The Guide was very friendly and informative and stopped many times for photos. The whole day was very enjoyable and if we hadn't have booked the trip we would really have missed out on an incredible day. We also enjoyed the town of Skagway. Joe and Jenny Walsh

Great trip. Our guide was entertaining and informative. We really were "up in the clouds" at the highest point in our journey when visibility reduced to almost zero. Not sure about the dog sledding and museum but you can't please everyone.

Outstanding scenery during this tour. We had a glorious sunny day.
Lunch was good, but the final destination in the Yukon left a lot to be desired - not much there.
Our bus driver was good and informative. All in all, we enjoyed the trip

The trip was fantastic. I would recomment it to everyone. The tour guide (Sheri) was extreamly knowlageable and knew exactly where and when to stop. The scenarie was outstanding and we were able to see both Black and Brown Bears.We had a bus of 9 so it was a small group.

Our Family really enjoyed this excursion. The guide was nice and informative. Loved hearing about the Gold Rush and life at that time. Saw several bears, mt. goats and eagles. Loved the fact that the guide would stop so we could get a good look and take pictures.

In brief, this was an excellent day out and superb value for money. The pick-up at the appointed place was .timely. The guide was superb, stopping whenever animals or other points of interest eg waterfalls , were close by.. The scenery was fantastic especially between Caribou Crossing and Fraser and rivalled that of the Icefield Parkway.. A good lunch at Caribou Crossing with an interesting Museum and the opportunity so see Sled dogs being trained, all included in the price.Well done and highly recommended.

We really enjoyed the tour from Skagway to the Yukon. The scenerey was beautiful and the tour driver was very knowledgable and entertaining. We also added the Sled Dog ride which was fun. The only thing that could have been better was the food at Carribou Crossing. All you get is a chicken leg, roll and coleslaw. All in all it was a really nice, but long, trip and this was half the cost of the cruise tour which was almost identical. I think this was better.
