“Whitepass Railway Tour”
Reviewed November 21, 2013

Beautiful View and breathtaking routes leave us wonderful memories and amazed by the mother nature. Suitable for the whole family with my 2 year old boy onboard. I wish we could record all the way 360 degree to make the memory last in our video forever.

“Eye opener”
Reviewed November 20, 2013

This was a great way to see what the early pioneers had to endure as they made their way up the pass. In some places you can see part of the trail they had to take. The train trip with the vintage carriages was wonderful. Well worth doing.

“Excellent Trip”
Reviewed November 18, 2013

Spent our first afternoon excursion on the White Pass Railroad, the scenery was breathtaking and the ride was great. The narration was good and they gave plently of notice of what was coming up so that you could have your camera ready. I found the staff on board helpful and polite. We continued on to the Yukon with Dyea Dave and will write that review separately. Thoroughly enjoyed this excursion and would recommend to others.

“Must Do in Skagway”
Reviewed November 11, 2013

The trains meet you at the cruise ship and haul you up to Canada in vintage railcars. If you love trains, this is a must-see.
