We booked the Yukon Rail & Bus with Dogcart Experience through Chilkoot Charters for our party of 10 in July 2016. Our tour guide, Bruce, was excellent and very informative. He safely drove us up in a pretty comfortable mini-bus from Skagway into British Columbia and into the Yukon, where we stopped at several locations including Caribou Crossing for a... More

The most iconic trip in Skagway is the White Pass 3 foot gauge railroad trip. Pairing this with a tour of the area into the Yukon just is the icing on the cake. We were met right at the dock by our driver and tour guide Brian. He was funny and knowledgeable and really made the day great for my... More

Like most, we took this tour from a cruise ship and we were sure happy that we did. Getting teed up off the boat, with so many passengers disembarking in this port was a bit hectic, but once we were settled in for a short bus ride to the train station (don't be confused, some actually loaded onto the train...

We went on a tour of the Skagway area, including a dog mushing company with lunch. Very personable and informative guide. The dog mushing stop was very good with tasty lunch and a chance to pet the dogs. You can also go for a ride, with the dogs pulling. It was fun to see how excited the dogs are to... More

We were told about this trip and booked well in advance.I was worried that we would not get off the ship in time, but there was loads of time. We were met at the dock and taken to the train, with 4 to a table we had lots of room. As soon as we got 'into the scenery' a few... More

Tour company is great! No issues finding them at the end of the pier at the port. Guide and driver was awesome and very informative! But the excursion itself was very, very rushed. We did the Yukon Adventure with Dogcart Experience. By the time we arrived at the trading post we only had about 20 minutes to go through the... More

My husband, teen son and I took this tour in mid August, we booked directly with Chilkoot Charters and it was a great experience. They picked us up at the dock, small bus with about 18 people. Short drive to the train depot, where we boarded the second to last car - sit on the left side of the car... More

Arrived in Skagway on the Coral Princess. I booked this tour independently, after reading reviews and looking at cost. I debated whether to bus first or train first, finally decided on train first and I'm so glad I did. There were 4 of us traveling together and we enjoyed every minute of this tour. We were blessed with beautiful weather.... More

Booked this day long trip for husband and I along with our parents. We have some ambulatory issues so we wanted to see the beauty of Alaska with limited walking. I was not super excited about this because this is not my kind of adventure but this is the type of outing that we needed. Chilkoot Charters was easy to... More

Really enjoyed taking the WPYR train up to Fraser BC and then bus/van back down. Our guide Brian picked us up from the cruise dock, exactly on time and where instructed from the info received when booking online. Brian took us through town and got us settled and on the train (no having to deal with getting our own train... More
