Loved it!
Sep 2019 • Friends
The train ride was great and very wil narrated. The gold panning was a blast with lost of experienced panner on hand to help. Then to 40 below... If your from Ottawa, it's a breeze! Finally, the dog sleighs... it was great to hear and see how it's all done; I already have my calendar marked to follow their mushers in the Iditarod 2020!

Klondike Mike made it real!
Sep 2019
We did this as an excursion from the Norwegian Bliss. It was amazing and a lot of fun. From the dime tour of downtown Skagway, meeting the Iditarod 2020 team, hugging sled dogs and holding squirmy puppies to gold panning, and the -40º room. After that, a short bus ride to the WP&YR railroad, we made the exquisite trip up the White Pass.
It was made real by the wonderful narration and stories told by Klondike Mike. To actualize the trip the gold seekers made up the pass to Canada and to realize that it was done in freezing, icy weather.
I totally recommend this tour company, they are well prepared and knowledgeable about their product.

My wife and I did the gold panning, lunch, bottle your own root beer, and 40 degree below room. Interestingly, this included the sled dogs but wasn’t mentioned on the actual excursion. This was a great experience and our tour guide (can’t remember name but included Bill) was great! Matt and Casey gave us a run down on the sled dogs and they were great. There was another lady helping out who was very friendly and informative. Would highly recommend as a Skagway excursion. You still have time afterward to explore the downtown and our bus conveniently dropped us off right outside the Alaskan Shirt Company.

Dear davidmckibb, We are so glad that you enjoyed your time with us at Alaska 360's Dredge Town. Rockbottom Bill was probably your tour guide and he is really outstanding. I think we all enjoyed his presence here as much as our guests. Matt and Kacy are also amazing and I think the woman that you mention was probably ER, another long-standing member of the team. I will make sure that all of these people see your review. Thank you so much for taking the time to write and we hope the rest of your cruises was also great!

We panned for gold then got to learn about sled dogs and hold puppies and finally went into minus 40. My wife loved holding the puppies.

Favorite Cruise Ship Excursion

We did the gold panning, dog sled presentation and train. Enjoyed all, but train was best. Aurora May is a great tour guide!

Dear 794peggyg, Thank you so much for reviewing our combo tour with the White Pass and Yukon Rail. We are most fortunate that White Pass gives us train space to make one seamless tour from our site and up the pass. Our costumed guide - in this case, Aurora May - adds on to the narration, gives out a snack, and makes a toast with the entire train car at the summit. On that ride down, the train guide also entertains the guests and I am so happy you got to hear Aurora May sing and play the dulcimer. All of our guides are superb entertainers and superb educators and Aurora May is a standout among them. It has been a delightful season working with her and with guests such as yourselves, who make our days so wonderful.

Awesome family excursion
Sep 2019 • Family
We did the Sled Dogs, Gold Panning, and 40 below with "Spruce Tips McGee" (Mason). Such a fun experience for the family! We are a married couple with an 8 year old, 4 year old, and my husband's parents. We each got a a few flecks of gold. The dogs were awesome to meet. The puppies were so adorable. The 40 below was a neat experience. I definitely recommend it!

Experiencing Alaska
Sep 2019
Our group went on our RCI ship's excursion featuring the White Pass Railroad trip along with a gold mining and sled dog camp. The last two were at Alaska 360 which was better than we expected. We were given an education on dog sledding by Dan who participated 7 times in the Iditarod. We were amazed to learn about the dogs training and care while on this gruesome race and conditions they and their musher are exposed to. Gained a new respect for this sport. We were then treated to time with the sled dogs, held sled dog puppies, and got a demonstration of the dogs pulling a sled. It is amazing to see how excited they get when they see the sled. Next we got an education and demonstration on gold panning and each had a turn at swirling our pan for riches unfortunately we can't retire on $29 of gold dust. To really get a feel of Alaskan winters, we entered the 40 Below room for an artic blast. They do provide winter coats if needed. Our tour guide was Max Glacier and he was quite the character! Our tour would not have been the same without him.

Dear Teri U, It would appear that you really got to experience Alaska 360 on your tour. We have given our company this name because we believe that we give people a pretty full experience of life in Southeast Alaska. You got up to the summit, panned for gold, felt the cold, and met some representatives of our state sport. Meeting Max Glacier - who is, I think you know, pretty unique - is also a part of Alaska. It's a state with an interesting population!

Puppies
Sep 2019 • Couples
Oh my god what an expensive. We got to pan for gold. Unfortunately my husband had more luck that me with my $2 worth of gold he got $17 but it was great fun. After this and my whole reason for doing the excursion in the first place the puppies.
We got to learn about the Iditarod and we met the mushers. We were then able to meet all the dogs who participate in the Iditarod. But most importantly we got to meet and hold the 8 week old puppies and come on how can you not love a puppy.
Excellent experience and lovely staff.
You have to try the home made cookies and rootbeer they were fantastic and a lovely way to finish the trip.

Dear Missmac29, We have seen many competitive couples in our panning sheds and are happy to see that you two have not let a little gold get in the way of a great relationship. We are so pleased that you had a lovely time from gold to cookies and will pass on your comments to the mushers who are such an important part of Dredge Town. Many thanks for such a comprehensive review.

My family and I had a blast during this excursion! We had the opportunity to pan for gold next to a gorgeous view, meet an Iditarod racer, the dogs, and play with some puppies!, -40 degrees chamber to feel what racing conditions are like, a delicious meal, and singing song roasting s’mores by the fire. We all really enjoyed it and I highly recommend.
Our guide was Max Glacier who was awesome! We all loved him!

Dear Rachellmarg, Max Glacier will be so pleased to read this review. We tell him every day how wonderful he is but he really likes to hear it from his guests! And don't worry, we won't let him get a big head. We still ask him to clean at the end of the day. Thanks so much for loving someone we all love so much.
