Bus left early (?!) and we arrived on time. The owner, Roy, tried to reach the driver by radio but Mike (driver) did not respond. Roy then put us, 2 people, in his personal pickup truck and gave us city tour (trying to find bus) then drove us up the White Pass! We caught up to the bus and joined... More

Bruce was a great guide with a ton of information. He answered all the questions we had. Many stops for photo ops, where he offered to take photos of the various groups on the bus, which had 10 passengers at the max. There were four groups do four different, yet similar tours. Two passengers road the train up and we... More

We were traveling with nine family members (ages 6 to 76) and were looking for a tour that was more flexible than the ones offered by the cruise lines. We were pleased with this privately owned tour company. They offer a variety of tours. We selected the combination rail and van tour to the Yukon. They picked us up at... More

We were on a cruise so this was one of our day tours. We chose the bus for the trip up and then the rail back down. Bruce our guide was very friendly and gave lots of information as we travelled. Bruce also pulled over at lots of vantage points for us to take photos. At the signs for Alaska... More

Our guide James made this trip! His lovely Irish lilt and warm stories made the day go by too quickly. The wonderful train ride and husky puppy visit, topped off with a very nice lunch helped keep us sustained. The scenery and wonderful pictures made this excursion so worth while. Don't be scared by the 7.5 hour description...you need it!

We took the Yukon Rail & Bus excursion with Chilkoot Charters & Tours. We started by van with a tour through Skagway and a history lesson from our driver. Then we headed up the highway and out of town to the Canadian border. Again our driver gave great commentary of what we were seeing and some of the history. We... More

Great tour guide (Mike) got us to the photo op spot before the other tour buses, funny stories, willing to turn the van around right away to see the bear spotted on the side of the road

We cruised on the Crown Princess 'Inside Passage' tour last week (Aug 2016). Because I am a romantic and a small history buff, I anticipated this excursion with much excitement; I wanted the charm of a railcar, the information as to why and how it was built, and also the predated feeling of an unstoppable and impassive wilderness all around....

Maybe we had been spoilt by our experiences in Alaska with whales, float planes and glaciers, but as a family, we were fairly under awed by the trip. To be fair, it was what it said it was, and the weather wasn't great - drizzly and cloudy. We took a bus to the railway station, and this was fun -... More

Our group of 6 adults booked the white pass summit bus and rail. We took the train up and the bus down. We were all on a land and sea tour through Alaska with Princess Cruise lines. We saw many sights during our two weeks in Alaska, but this train tour up into the mountains was incredibly beautiful and one... More
