After a lot of research and reading reviews I am so happy I booked with Chilkoot on our cruise port stop. Took the train up to Fraiser BC and the small tour bus back to town. There was no more then 15 of us on the tour and we got the last train car, which is the ticket. Got a panaramic view the whole time. Mike, our driver was in Fraiser to pick us up and loved the drive back and crossing back over into Alaska which we stop for pictures. Only issue would be with White Pass and to put a speaker out on the outside deck so you can hear what is being said. Mike dropped us off back in town where ever you wanted to go. He suggested a great little seafood stop off 4th street, can remember the name but was very good!!

We were blessed with clear blue skies in early July. Did the train from Skagway to Frazier then bus into Canada and the southern Yukon Territory to Carpass. Our driver and guide James from Arizona via Ireland was engaging and entertained us with story after story and life lessons learned. The scenery is spectacular. Try sit on the left side of the train heading from Skagway for better views, get up and go outside onto the platforms. The chicken BBQ at Carcross was tastey. We did not do the dogsled, though those that did said it was fun.

We took the train, then a bus on this 7 1/2 hour tour from Skagway, into Carcross, Fraser, Emerald Lake, and the Yukon territory. The tour also included a great barbeque chicken lunch at Caribou Crossing...where we also enjoyed the taxidermy museum. James was our guide, and he was so interesting and informative. We still talk about that day with such vivid memories because he was so thorough in his commentary. We definitey recommend this tour.

We had done the White Pass Railway tour previously. On the first occasion we booked it through the ship and the tour went to Baker Lake and back on the railway. This time we decided to try the combination rail and bus tour offered by Chilkoot Charters. It was the right decision as the return bus tour offered some very interesting scenery and the tour guide, Mike, was outstanding in providing information and photo opportunities along the way. In comparison, we feel that this tour offered more for less money and would highly recommend it.

We selected the tour where we rode the train up the White Pass and took a tour van down. I think this was way better than taking the train both ways. We were able to stop on the way down for photo opportunities and the van driver (Mike) was funny and interesting. The train ride was good. We were in the last car and were able to stand on the small deck in the back and get some great pictures. If you can, go to the Tourist information building in Skagway before you go on the train and watch the 30 minute film on the gold rush and how the men climbed the Pass. It really makes the trip much more interesting.
