fantastic tour, well narrated however, if out on platform taking photos, you can't hear the narrator. Sit on left side going up unless you are afraid of heights though the train does turn around at top

We left the ship late, so during our trip into canada by coach, we didn't get many changes to get off the coach, for picture. We were taken to a musher camp for lunch and to see the huskie puppies. We didn't have time to do the shed ride. The train was ok, the weather was bad and we had fog, so it was hard to see,so it made the trip boring. Read Less

I've been on several scenic train rides in the past and this one was fairly good. The scenery was great but the train itself was uncomfortable. If you can afford it definitely choose first class. The benches are small and hard for a 3 hour ride and the space is tight with a lot of passengers. Our window rattled like crazy and the person in front of us spent a lot of time trying to find a way to stop it without success. We sat on the left side which was good because going up that's were all the scenery is. It loops at the top so both sides of the car get a chance but by that time it had gotten very foggy so the people on the right didn't get to see as much as we did. Read Less

Beautiful ride, average commentary. Motor coach driver back on the Yukon Highway was a delight and very funny although he was fairly young. Salmon bake was another disaster but we are thankful to another motor coach driver, not our, who let us join his passengers on an earlier departure back to town giving us some free time to explore.

Took the Skagway train ride in luxury car at the very back of the train. WORTH EVERY PENNY!! Yes, some people say the luxury car goes the same way as the rest of the train... and they are not wrong. BUT what you get on the luxury car is the back platform that gives you an expansive view from the rear of the train. Essential for great photography opportunities and we even snapped a photo of a black bear crossing the tracks right after the train passed by. The train ride itself is GREAT no matter what car you're in - but if you can afford it and want to get some good photos - get the luxury car!! Plus you get beer and goodies along the way. We would give this experience about 45 stars if we could. Fun Day!! Read Less
