I can’t recommend this Day long trip enough! We brought my kids - Ages 3-13 - and my parents. We all loved it! Stunning scenery. Great stops for photos.

The scenic drive tour is amazing. Being able to step off the bus and truly experience the glory of the Yukon was unbelievable.

Best excursion we have ever taken! I cannot praise this enough. The tour guide was not only extremely knowledgeable about the Klondike gold rush and the wilderness, but also very entertaining, reciting a very humorous poem that he had memorized (The Cremation of Sam McGee) to the delight of all. We made the best choice in this excursion as those who took the train ride saw nothing but fog. Absolutely phenomenal and all because of the guide. Read Less

I am short so bus rides tend to bore me as I have difficulty seeing over seats and past my husband who needs the window seat to take photos.

Booked the bus to the top of the pass. Only rated a 4 because of the weather, but if you had taken the train which we did previously and had the same weather, you would have paid quite a bit more for the same views.
