5 StarsBest Tour of the TripNovember 30, 2016

Reviewer: Catomoose
This was an amazing all-day trip- we had a fantastic tour guide- Ms. Early (sounds like), and she really knew the ins and outs during a stunning minibus ride through to Canada along the Al-Can highway. She stopped frequently, gave insights, and really made this tour worthwhile. In Canada, she dropped us off for the rail portion of the trip, and we had an incredible (and a bit scary looking) trip back along rails on the side of a mountain looking over lakes and canyons. If you enjoy historical (gold rush history) information and scenes to knock your socks off, I highly recommend you take this tour. We loved it!

5 StarsA definite ""must do""November 11, 2016

Reviewer: Mark
This was among the best excursions we did while in Alaska. If you are looking for something with some history tied to it and something that will enable you to see the natural beauty of Alaska this is the thing for you.

This is a great way to see the Yukon and hear about the Gold Rush History. I highly recommend this train ride! The lunch was plentiful and do offer gluten and vegan choice if notified in advance. We loved the train trip

Reviewer: Lorraine
We drove the shuttle up to Bennett; our driver and guide, Kevin, was very informative, knowledgeable, funny: a pleasant drive! The train ride back offered beautiful scenery, the lunch was ok, the stop in Bennett was a little long. Overall, a lovely day.

Reviewer: Kiva Adkins
Such a great trip with so many chances to take breathtaking photographs. We were even invited by the local at Bennett Lake to have fresh fish and salad. Our favorite pictures from our trip were here. A bonus on the trip back was seeing glacial silt that looked like sand dunes.
