Saw some nice country, but no animals. Saw narrow walking bridge between US and Canada but didn't get to walk over it. Saw Welcome to the Yukon sign. So what. Definitely not worth the money.

Our tour was terrific. Our guide Beverly was knowledgeable and funny and told us all kinds of great stories and history. I had taken the train last time I was in Skagway and the scenery was mostly fogged out. I liked this tour better. We went into Canada and Beverly stopped many times for pictures along the way. Pick up was easy right at the port.

The excursion and driver, Max, were excellent. The 28? passenger bus was full, clean, on time and in good shape. Max, our driver, was knowledgeable, friendly and enthusiastic. Really good! Scenery as we drove from Skagway up through White Pass (elevation ~3400 feet), through the alpine environment, past Fraser, then Tutshi Lake, and on to the border of BC and Yukon Territory was beautiful.
The return trip back to our ship took about an hour and 20 minutes, Very enjoyable experience.

Our guide, Brooke, was fantastic. The scenery was great. We also saw a bear, a moose, mountain goats and Iditarod puppies. The tour was 3x deeper into the frontier and half the price as as the train tour. Also, because we were in a small bus, we stopped for photos a scenic lookouts and of the wild animals we encountered. Very nice.

We had a small bus and our driver Tyler was a local man who kept us entertained with information and jokes! He went out of his way to make sure we saw bears etc. Always happy to take photos of us at the borders. A really good trip! Value for money.

I highly recommend this tour, our tour guide Brook was the best, we stopped numerous times for pictures, the beauty of this tour was absolutely gorgeous, I felt like I was looking at a postcard. She was very informative about the area. It was worth every penny spent.

it was incredible.. the best excursion we took on our Alaskan Cruise.. our tour guide was Brook.. very informed and very entertaining.. the stops were beautiful, as were just looking out the window as we drove thru.. Any question we asked, she knew the answer.. I tried to review this excursion before, but for some reason it never took.. was disappointed because really wanted to let you know this was one of the highlights of our trip.. the price was good too
