Great trip, great bus driver/tour guide, it was very interesting. I learned a lot and it was fun. He stopped along the way so we could take pictures. great trip
Excellent driver and tour guide very knowledgeable of the area. Made the trip very informative. Took time to let us get out at scenic areas so we could take pictures.
Very enjoyable excursion. our tour guide was excellent. lots of stories told along the way. Many stops along the way giving us great photo opportunities. Awesome views.
Jim Shepard was a wonderful guide and gave us a lot of good history. He is to be commended!! He gave us plenty of time to explore the cemetery, gave us the complete history of
On our Alaska cruise we did this tour to check out inland at this port... was really informative and we saw some amazing scenery! a really good way to see the sights, especially if you are on a budget.
The White Pass Deluxe Tour from Skagway was amazing!!! The scenery was breathtaking but what made the experience even more memorable was the tour guide. He was not only very knowledgeable but also friendly and very engaged with his audience. I would recommend this tour to anyone looking to spend a day exploring the beauty and history of Skagway.
This was a great tour. It was the best value when compared to the cruise ship tours. About a third the cost of what the cruise ship offered. Joe our tour guide was excellent. Very knowledgeable and made several stops for pictures. He kept us entertained with stories of the gold rush and the history
Our tour guide on this one was a guy called Joe who has been a guide for many years, he gave a great commentary and stories all along the tour and stopped for loads of photo opportunities making sure everyone got group photos which he would take for you. This was one of the cheaper tours we did along our cruise up through Alaska, but possibly the best one.
There was only the weather that spoilt this trip as it was very misty and raining all day. Other than the weather the trip was great shame we didn't get to see the true scenery. Tour guide was good too and very knowledgeable.
Very nice tour Joe was very knowledgeable We enjoyed tour very much
We had an amazing time on this tour. Jack, our tour guide, was very knowledgeable, courteous and excited about Alaska and her history. He definitely went above and beyond to ensure that we enjoyed our tour and made the most of our time. He also offered to stop at various photo op sites and took several pictures of our group. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone who is looking for a personal small group experience. Be sure to request Jack!
Our tour guide Joe made our trip to Skagway even on a very rainy day so interesting and special. Joe showed us the sights of Skagway, the old cemetery and the White Pass along with other stops. We learned fascinating facts about plants and their uses, survival tips, and stories of the history and people of Skagway. Joe clearly loves his job, Skagway and the environment. He was helpful, informative and humorous. There were six of us in our group and we all loved the tour with Joe.
After an initial bit of confusion on a very crowded dock we met up with Joe our tour driver/guide,from
then on the day ran smoothly. Joe was a fountain of knowledge on all aspects of our tour and often injected
moments of humour.There were many points of interest where Joe pulled over so that we could take photos.
We thoroughly enjoyed our tour and i even felt safe on the winding mountain roads which
i usually dread. I would thoroughly recommend this tour.
Our ship docked in Haines then we took the FastFerry to Skagway for this tour. We had received word directly from this company that they would pick us up right at the dock and they did! Our driver was from Boston and did a wonderful job of sharing some personal stories of how he adapted to Alaska and his tour guide job. Two years ago I took the train up to White Pass and it was a great trip, but I so enjoyed the flexibility of the van on this tour! We could stop and leisurely take pics instead of missing snap shots from sitting on the wrong side of train. We then had a choice to be delivered back downtown Skagway for a walking tour or back to dock. Excellent, professional company!
The bus arrived on time our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and obviously enjoys his job. Everything we were shown was explained in detail and the sights were amazing.
This tour is an excellent value. Our driver and guide was Boston Joe and he was very knowledgeable about the area and told us stories about the gold rush days and threw in personal anecdotes. It was as if a fun relative was giving you a tour. He is the best! He even took photos for people and read us one of his poems. I wish I had a copy of his poem Raven Knows. There were stops at the old cemetery, Liarsville, the summit and a bathroom break just beyond the summit where we turned around. Also stops just above Skagway for a nice view of the town, and others for picture taking and breath-taking views. Bathrooms and a gift shop are also available at Liarsville. Panning for gold was an activity you could have at Liarsville for I think 5 extra when you made the reservations.
We have booked White Pass bus trip with Klondike
We have chosen the bus tour as they do it for the small groups and one gets to see pretty much the same scenery as people do on the train trip.
Our guide Joe was excellent, very courteous and accomodating.
