Would highly recommend! The scenery was breathtaking! The staff was knowledgeable and made sure we saw all the points of interest. The self-guided tour of Bennett was nice and Bennet lake is beautiful! I would do this trip all over again!

Possibly the highlight of our trip. The tour is organised with Chilkoot Tours, who pick you up at the bottom of the gangplank. We were then introduced to Larry, who is larger than life and full of knowledge about Alaska. A short drive takes you to the station where you pick up your train. We were allocated the last carriage, which gave us access to the open air standing deck at the back. The first part of the journey was in low cloud, which meant that we didn't have the views, but it seemed to add to the atmosphere. As we climbed we left the cloud behind and the weather was clear and quite warm.
The history of this line is fascinating and it is worth listening to the narration.

Bennett Station and museum really lets you realise how desperate or maybe greedy these men were. The hardship was horrendous and only a limited number were set to succeed. Don't miss the view point up the hill past the church - simply stunning.

After lunch on the move by Bennett Lake, we met Larry again in Carcross, who took us back by bus to Skagway, stopping at various points to take pictures. At one point to visit a bear feeding on berries by the road. We got back about 1.5 hours before our ship was due to leave so we had an opportunity to look around Skagway. A great day all round. However beware of Viator, who gave us the wrong pick up time for the tour on our voucher and we would have missed it if I hadn't checked it with Chilkoot Tours. I would recommend booking direct with them.

Our tour guide Kevin (on the way to the train) was the best ever! We had the best tour ever. He was informative and fun ! Our narrator on the train was great too! This was the very best tour we have ever taken in our travels!

Beautiful country, loved heading into the Yukon Territory. It was fairly foggy on the day of our tour, so some of the views from the train were obscured. However, the bus driver on the way back into Skagway did his best to ensure we still saw many of the things pointed out on the train up close before returning. James was very philosophical in his musings, and really enhanced the experience.

We have a lot to thank the founding fathers for. A memorable experience. I recommend this tour as a must.

The ttrain was as breath taking as I had remembered 30 years ago. We saw three bears in the distance on the train and saw an additional two bears on the way home. The bears like the dandelions and were eating them on the road home. Emarald lake is one of the most beautiful lakes that I have ever seen. I would highly recommend this trip to everyone.

Excellent Scenery and great information presented on the tour. I wish the weather could have been a bit better...but not much the tout company can do about that. A must do if you visit Skagway.

The excursion was great. The price was a little high. If you are cruising, try to stay with the cruise excursion.

It was a very nice trip, with great views of the mountians. It does get a little long and there's nothing much in Bennet. We were very fortunate to have had amazingly good weather the entire day. I think if it had been cloudy or rainy the trip would have been a complete fail. The bus trip back was fun and our tour guide driver was great.

We had a great time on this trip. We liked to spend time outside on the platform, which unfortunately did not have speakers so we missed a lot of the commentary on what we were seeing.

A wonderful train ride and excellent organisation to get us there.
Superb views but just a shame the train could not stop occassionally for photos!

This trip was mainly for my husband who drives trains and loves it. He really loved the trip as did I. What made it even more special was my husband was able to speak to the engineer driving the train. He also enjoyed talking with the conductor. The lunch was very good. Wish we could have stayed longer in the last town where the train let us off to catch the coach. Emerald lake was absolutely gorgeous.
