Would only recommend this if you aren’t looking for excitement or adventure. It’s a rather short time spent riding and you go extremely slow (I estimate 10 mph or less at all times and likely less than 4 miles). If you aren’t a 4 wheeling...More

This tour was fun! There was enough possible peril to keep it interesting, steep edge drop offs, muddy hills and such, but easy enough for nearly anyone to drive. The scenery was amazing.

We scheduled this tour on our cruise stop in Skagway. It was a typical Alaska day with a pretty steady rainfall but that didn't detract from the tour at all. The tour guides were great and gave us lots of information and history. The ride...More

You should be able to. I believe the train will pick up and drop off where your ship is docked. 11:30 is the meet time and the fast ferry that transfers you to Haines departs at 12pm. I hope this helps! Let me know if you... More
