What people are saying about Klondike Gold Rush National Historical Park

Very interesting and you can see more than from the train.

The guide was knowledgeable and entertaining. He kept to the rules and had 1 couple that did not have their passports leave the bus. He explained that they could get a later trip when they went to get the passports. He explained that Canada is particular who they let into their country and we needed to get back to the United States.

Excellent coverage of the entire trip

The bus trip to the White Pass Summit was excellent. The guide explained each part of the trip very well with full details and humor. Saw some beautiful sights all throughout the route.

Wonderful bus tour. Especially enjoyed ability to get off the bus to take pics. The narrative provided by our driver, Joe, was exceptional. I loved the humor he added to his stories.

Wonderful bus tour.

Fred, our tour host, was amazing and made sure we had a great time and saw everything. He was amazing. Much better than taking the train.

It was a tour around the superb view. The weather was nice and I was able to see the best view. The meeting place was hard to understand.
