We took the White Pass Train and Bicycle Tour and it was worth every penny! The train ride up to Frazier (I think) was beautiful. What stunning beauty! And what hardships the stampeders must have gone through! We were maybe 15 people in our car, so we could all see well; I spent a lot of time outside on the... More

After our hike we rode the White Pass Railway, it was beautiful to see the harbor where our ship was from the top of the mountain. I still can't get over the trees, they all look like Christmas. I want to go back.

Great train ride up to the mountains. At the beginning could seem boring, but more up you get more beautiful it is.

This was a very nice way to take a to see take little inland tour as part of your Alaskan cruise. While the scenery was beautiful, you also learned quite a bit about the history of the area and the gold rush that caused the railroad to be built.

We booked this tour with a company called Shore Trips. We were on a cruise but had heard that Shore Trips offered smaller groups so we went with them. We were not disappointed at all. First of all we had the caboose of the train, there were only 12 of us. Going up the White Pass on the train was... More

You will most definitely see some beautiful views of the mountains while on the train. If you hate heights, seat on the right side going up and left coming down or keep your eyes closed like I did. The employees where great at what they do. It is a little on the expensive side but worth it.

3 hours of fumes and no way to escape. No wind and the mountain is on one side. If you must try the back of the train. I would never ride it again. It made me sick.

Was told this is a must do while on a cruise round Alaska, and they were right. This awesome train ride has the most beautiful scenery. The trains are nice and comfy and have viewing platforms at the back of each carriage so really good if you are wanting to go outside and take photos, and if not you can... More

This was truly an amazing adventure. The scenery and the views all along the railway are beautiful. My mom and I took this train tour and had a great time. The tour guides and train operators are full of knowledgeable history. Highly recommend this adventure!
