A good trip, Joe our driver has lots of interesting stories to tell about the gold rush. Although we didn't see any wildlife as the cloud base was low the scenery was fantastic. Well worth doing.
Panning for gold was a waste of time. The bus trip was interesting - we saw goats on the mountain, along with beautiful waterfalls.
The tour was great - went through the city up to the summit - lots of stops along the
way for pictures. In my opinion, much better than the train as you get to stop and takes pictures
and get a city tour included.
The driver was very colorful and knowledgeable, the scenery was wonderful, the price was great, and the group was small. It parallels the course of the train, stops frequently for pictures, and is about a quarter of the price. Even though it was rainy/misty the whole time not unusual and we couldn't see much at several of the overlooks, it was still a fabulous tour.
Our tour guide, Joe, was the best!!!! He was so very knowledgeable about the area and we learned so much. We thoroughly enjoyed this tour.....we even got to see a bear!!!
We LOVED this tour. We've been on the White Pass train before and it's gorgeous but we wanted something more active -- we liked the fact that you're in a small tour bus with only about a dozen people, that you'll get in and out a few times, and have the chance to talk to the guide, ask questions, etc. And it didn't hurt that this option is MUCH less expensive than the train. The scenery was spectacular we even saw the train snaking along the mountain and the stories were very entertaining. In two places those who wanted to went on a small, easy hike. Our guide Jack was fantastic. Toward the end we stopped at an overlook with gorgeous views of the ships in port. The only bad part was that two people on our tour did not bring their passports and so the guide was unable to take us into Canada ... I can only imagine the beautiful scenery we missed out on. Please, folks, if you do go on this tour, remember to bring your passports to get the whole experience!
This tour was less than the price of what would have been covered in two excursions through the cruise line. Our guide was very knowledgeable, funny and patient with everyone. Highly recommend this tour company to spend your time well in Skagway!
Joe picked us up on time, told us great stories about the gold rush times, the town, and took us on the rout to Canada. The weather was not great , but he helped us with photos , stopped at all the waterfalls, and made the trip fun!
This was the highlight of my trip. The scenery was breathtaking and the convenience of van travel with the opportunity to get out and take pictures and drink in the views was priceless. The driver/guide was enlightening and entertaining.
