This was an EXCELLENT tour. Our tour guide, Tyler, was lively, extremely knowledgeable, personable and funny. The #1 reason I chose this tour over the White Pass railroad were the number of reviews that lamented the fact that you couldn’t get out at all. This...More

Yes, the shuttle we were in had two seats on either side with a bench seat across the back. They also had a very good mic system set up so you could hear even in the back.
