Gold Panning Rating: 5.0 out of 5+

Juneau is a lovely town, with a lot of history and beauty. The gold panning excursion was great. Our guide, Randy, was a funny, very friendly and knowledgeable person. Very enjoyable and got to take some gold home to boot! :-) I highly recommend Randy for the tour.

Liarsville Rating: Not Rated

Liarsville was a cute period camp, with a great little show about it's history with the gold panning/mining days and you could even pan for gold in the stream. Wonderful trip.




White Pass Scenic Railway Rating: 5.0 out of 5+

Skagway is a lovely town with lovely old buildings and atmosphere. Friendly people and easy to get around.

We took the White Pass Railway and Liarsville excursion. It was a great excursion and I recommend it to anyone. It's very family oriented. The scenery, going up to the pass on the train was very very beautiful. The train itself is very nice and had lots of big windows for taking amazing pictures. The conductor of the train gave a wealth of information about the area, the railway to the pass and how it helped the gold rush days.

Port Rating: 4.0 out of 5+

Victoria, British Columbia, is a very very beautiful city. It has such beautiful old buildings and the entire area was decorated with flower baskets hanging from the light poles along the streets. Very beautiful. They had an open market by the water and many many lovely shops and sights to see. A beautiful representation of Canada.
