We took the ride on the trolley as we heard that it was informative and interesting as well as a nice way to see the water front. The conductor was very nice and looked the part but he didn't give any narrative or information - very disappointed. Price is $3 one way and $5 return. Under 5yrs free.

This is a great introduction to the city of Whitehorse and some of it's history. The trolley runs back and forth along a stretch of track on the city's waterfront.

This trolley is very old fashioned and not that comfortable but it is a great way to get from one end of town to the other with stops along the way. The staff (both young ladies) were friendly and cheerful and full of local knowledge. Well worth it.

Does not run very often, but well worth the wait. It was a very convenient way to return from visiting the ship back to my hotel. Very freindly staff, fascinating wagon!

Nice views as it travels along the Yukon river. Too bad it doesn't go faster or farther. It is much faster to walk through town and you will see much more.

We rode the trolley today and it's a good ride and a fun way of seeing the sites along the waterfront. However, I was concerned about two things I noticed while aboard. For a considerable way opposite the end of the ride away from the Klondike, the trolley runs thru lots of bushes which need to be trimmed so that... More

Local friends introduced me and suggested the tour. Definitely worth the time. The museum and the trolleys are spotless and well maintained. A pleasant form of transportation along the waterfront on a warm day.

Got to see lots of Whitehorse from this little train. The young lady was very informative. We took it the day before it closed for the season. It was great.

not really as the river walk would be fun, time and weather permitting. enjoyed the pace of it, though timetable needs altering. We had to wait an additional 10 min in the rain. handy view and photo point for some of the sculptures. gave us some ideas for future visits.
