Amazing Excursion
October 14, 2019
The railway experience was spectacular and the bus adventure was remarkable. James Coleman MADE the trip. His stories and appreciation of the beauty and history of the land was incredible. The lunch at Carabou Crossing was great. The scenery was breath-taking and James told the best stories ever! James is the best. I can't imagine doing this excursion again without James Coleman!

Our bus driver was excellent and entertaining. The train ride was breathtaking but two stops to pick up hikers (first stop was over half and hour to wait for two hikers that were not at the stop) made it impossible for us to see Skagway as we needed to get back to our ship by a certain time.

Amazing Tour
September 30, 2019
An amazing day & tour! We enjoyed perfect weather & an amazing tour guide & driver-James. He made sure we didn't miss the best sights in Alaska and the Yukon, while sharing amazing facts and stories. Our group @17 adults seemed to enjoy the train trip (from the last car) allowing us views of spectacular sights that could never be seen by car/bus. Meanwhile, James drove to the top of the mountains where we boarded his small bus, and we were treated to views of reflecting lakes, a desert, glaciers, snow-topped mountains, & even a close-up view of a baby bear. The trip included a delicious BBQ lunch & time to watch Iditarod sled dogs being exercised. We were able to pet sled dog puppies and visit the animal museum. At trip's end, James offered a town or ship drop-off. The tour sounds pricey, but is well worth the cost & is probably the best shore excursion tour I've ever booked. I highly recommend the experience. (Went in mid-Sept.-allowed us no crowds and a touch of Fall's beauty).

We cannot say enough good things about this adventure. This is the first adventure not directly booked with our cruise line. In the past, we were always concerned about returning to our ship timely.

I chose to this tour because it was broken up with a bus and a train component. I didn't want to be stuck on the other train tour for four hours, only to fall asleep. Our tour guide was friendly, informative, and funny. He made the journey very memorable. On the train ride, we were able to stand outside to view all of the mountain and water features. It was cool to be able to sit inside in comfort or stand outside with the fresh air.

This was my favourite excursion! Not only the scenery was spectacular, but the bus driver “Mike” was excellent with appropriate commendations and humour. The train allowed us to see so much more beauty and glaciers than the road. On the negative side, the college guides were NOT sophisticated enough for an otherwise awesome experience. Some maturity on their part would have increased our pleasure in listening to them.

September 05, 2019
My granddaughter and I both very much enjoyed the train trip and bus trip. We loved stopping at the small towns and settlements to visit the museum and shops and see the scenery. The historic information was very interesting and we learned a lot and had a great time. It was also nice to be back in Skagway early enough to roam around in their shops and left off towards the "back" of the town away from the jewelry stores.

Yukon tour
August 29, 2019
We did the bus tour first up to the Yukon. Ann was our guide and was fantastic! She provided excellent commentary throughout the trip, made sure to keep everyone safe during the road side stops, and checked in with the group frequently on comfort level of bus. We took the train from Fraser back to Skagway. Train ride was disappointing. We were on the "hill" side of the train and couldn't see much of the scenery. A family group filled the front of the train car for the entire trip so we were limited to trying to find a spot on the back of the car. Honestly the vistas were better on the bus portion of the tour.

If you are looking at train trips out of Skagway, this is the tour to go on! You'll see a lot of Alaska and some remote areas of Canada. We took this day excursion as part of our cruise trip. Enjoyed the bus ride up there. Our guide Morgan taught us a lot about Alaska and the Yukon territory. A great storyteller and kept us entertained! We were amazed at how much knowledge he had about the area. He really made our trip! Everyone in our party liked the lunch.Train ride was beautiful, as well. My kids (ages 9, 13 & 15) enjoyed it. Highly recommend this tour! You will regret it, if you don't book it.

August 19, 2019
Great day of learning, beautiful scenery, great experiences! Loved our guide Mike! informative and professional. Loved the intimate experience! Learned so much about the Klondike gold rush, glaciers, Carcross and Skagway. Stoped near beautiful waterfalls, lakes and cute towns. Bring a warm and wind proof jacket! Cold and windy up in the pass. Great BBQ chicken lunch with yummy homemade doughnuts for desserts. At our lunch stop we Got to do a dog mushing experience, pet the puppies, and visited an outstanding taxidermy museum with a woolly mammoth! Loved the train ride back to Skagway from Fraser Canada in the Yukon. We had the whole train car to our group, loved riding the historic train. Tip, go walk around Skagway early because most of the stores were closed by the time we came back after our 8 hour adventure. Be aware you start the day and spend more than half of the excursion on a mini bus. The train is your trip back to town. We highly recommend this experience.

A young girl got sick on our tour, she needed medical attn asap. We were on our way back to Skagway and had no phone or radio reception. Jamison, our driver was great to drive quickly and keep his cool until we could contact authorities. We got a police escort and met paramedics in the canyon. The paramedics transported the girl and her parents to the clinic in Skagway. Jamison graciously offer to give them transportation back to their ship when they were finished at the clinic even if he had to do it on his own time. Not sure of the outcome but kuddos to Jamison for his compassion and professionalism!!

The bus ride was more enjoyable because it stopped at landmarks, allowing for picture taking breaks.

If your a nature lover this is a must see excursion. The train ride takes one through untouched mountains where you see so much forest, a caravan with a rapid river running through it and plenty of snow capped mountains. At the end of the train ride one finds themselves in Canada where one switches onto a bus with less than 30 people. This bus ride take one on the other side of the caravan allowing one the opportunity to see wild life such as bears, mountain goats and more. The bus also stopped several times to look at scenic lakes, mountains, etc., which allowed one to take pictures of these breath taking sights.

The train ride is absolutely beautiful! You won't want to miss the scenery, in both Alaska and the Yukon Territory. The bus ride through the Yukon is fantastic too, and the guide knew a lot about the area (possibly because he grew up there). The Caribou Crossing place where you stop for lunch is great too! The food was overall very good. The BBQ chicken was much better than I expected for being massed produced for a large group of people and wasn't dry at all. They also have these awesome cinnamon donuts that they make every day. Not to mention the dog-sled dogs you can see getting ready to pull a sled and the puppies that you can play with.

Yukon Adventure
March 17, 2017
We (40's) were traveling with my parents (70's) and our children (10/12) This excursion has a great mix of different sites and experiences for everyone to enjoy. If you are looking at doing the railway, then I would highly suggest that you do this as opposed to the ones that only go half way-you will miss the incredible scenery that can only be enjoyed from the upper reaches. You are on a smaller van/bus as opposed to the cruise line offerings. With fewer people you are able to get out and take pictures instead of burning up your time unloading.Being outdoors, weather plays a huge role and we had a beautiful day -- but in the event that the weather would not be good, you will still be able to see things and not get soaked because of being in a van or train. Absolutely beautiful scenery and it can be done by any age group -- the amount of walking you do is up to you. You are never walking long distances to get from one mode of transportation to another. Great family excursion!

we very much enjoyed the travel by bus with all the interesting commentary by Doug our guide. He fit right in with his experience and appearance and brought this magnificent nature and turbulent history for us to enjoy. taking the train back was really beautiful and even more enjoyable with all the information we had gained on our bus tour

My wife and I took this same tour several years ago. When we decided to go back to Alaska we made sure to do it again. This was the only tour we wanted to do and we let our tour companions choose all the other shore excursions. We would do this again is we go back to Alaska..

I can't say enough about this most enjoyable excursion. We were picked up at a nearby parking lot at the pier and were driven across the road to board the train. We found the train to be very clean and comfortable. We were in the last car and our husbands spent a bit of time outside taking pictures along the journey up the mountain. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and forthcoming with information about everything we were seeing. When we switched over to the motorcoach portion of the trip we were in for a most delightful day. Our tour guide James was quite the storyteller. He rendered story after story of the history of everything we were seeing as well as a few personal tales of his time growing up in the old country (Ireland) and of his offseason home in Arizona. His wit and humor and love of life were very touching and left us agreeing this as one trip we will never forget.

This was a relaxing adventure because all we had to do was sightsee and listen to the train and van drivers. The sights were beautiful. Our van driver shared a lot of very interesting facts and local stories.

Our tour guide for the bus part of this adventure, Mike, was really fantastic! Very entertaining and knowledgeable!! I highly recommend this tour over the train only tours, or the tours on much larger buses. Going into the Yukon on this bus, and stopping at many interesting spots, was the best part!

This was spectacular from beginning to end! Providers were exceptional, knowledgeable and friendly. The meal left much to be desired but the park was great fun. The very best way to get a true sense of Alaska.

An Adventure NOT To Miss!!
August 20, 2016
Our daughter and family were on the Carnival Legend for our 50th anniversary. There were 6 of us aged 9 - 76. This tour with Shore Excursions left nothing out. Wonderful tour guide - informative, funny, and VERY personable. Rail trip took our breath away. Unless you experience the train it's hard to describe. Carcross Desert was a complete and welcomed surprise. Have booked in the past with Shore Excursions and most certainly will in the future. We have NEVER been disappointed!!!

This was Such a Memorable day for my husband & I, both being native Canadians & now living in the USA it was wonderful to see a part of our homeland that neither of us had seen. The scenery on the train was Beautiful & the guys on the train were very informative. Seeing Emerald lake was Awe inspiring & for me the dogs @ Caribou crossing trading post was the Best but wish we had more time with them. For me though what made this tour & day the most unforgettable was our tour guide James! What a lovely soul... His heartfelt stories brought tears to my eyes & I took a message away from him from that day that I will Never forget. Especially after a recent loss in my life, his thoughts about our ""invisible ties"" were So needed & God sent! I feel blessed for this experience, thank You :-)

This was a wonderful excursion! Our guide was informative, funny, and sensitive to our interests; the bus was very comfortable; the lunch was tasty; the return train ride was great because it offered different views of the surrounding mountains. Don't let the length of the excursion deter you as there are many opportunities to get off of the bus to view the scenery and the lunch period is a good break time to eat and stretch the legs.

Well organized, for me being Canadian it meant allot to me to be in the Yukon and having my passport stamped there.Also thrilling to be on the same trail as the prospectors of '98.Great phot opportunities and I liked the idea of having a stove on-board.
