Reviews

"more than we expected" We loved the tour; the experience was both enlightening & enriching. We came to the midnight sun - June 21 - "We came, we went, we saw!" Lin & Murray Rigg - Saskatoon, SK

Scenic, historic, and rugged. That’s how Gail Haight described her three-week excursion in Alaska and the Yukon. Gail and her husband, Gary, along with 12 friends from the small, resort village of Candle Lake journeyed on the WestWorld Tours Alaska & the Yukon Cruise Tour in July 2015.

One of their first stops in the Yukon was at Carcross, where they embarked on a 67.5 mile expedition by train on the White Pass and Yukon Route. They saw breathtaking views of mountains, gorges, waterfalls, tunnels and trestles. At Whitehorse, they attended the humourous Frantic Follies Vaudeville Revue which focused on the works of Robert Service, a British-Canadian poet and writer who is best known for his vivid descriptions of the Yukon and its people.

It really was a unique experience to walk on the wooden boardwalks in the gold rush town of Dawson City, Yukon,” Gail explained. “Seeing the old buildings brings you back to the days when prospectors came to the Yukon to strike it rich,” she added. "Visiting the sight of the first big strike, Dredge No. 4, panning for gold and being on the Dome at midnight on the longest day were wonderful opportunities to experience a bit of the gold rush."

The Haights continued on to Alaska across the Top of the World Highway, amazed by the beautiful vistas and wildflowers. They enjoyed a voyage on the Riverboat Discovery at Fairbanks, Alaska. There were several stops along the river bank which included: a tour of the Chena Indian Village; a bush pilot demonstration; and, a visit to the home and kennels of the late Susan Butcher, the four-time champion of the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race. The riverboat adventure concluded with a delicious salmon bake dinner.

The pace slowed a little as they boarded the ship, the Celebrity’s Millennium, cruising to Hubbard’s Glacier, Icy Straight Point, and the Inside Passage. There was time for walking tours when they docked in the ports of Juneau, Skagway and Ketchikan.

We had a wonderful time,” said Gail. “WestWorld Tours did a great job of planning the trip. Our guide, Koral Carpentier, was knowledgeable, personable, spontaneous and fun. We will definitely go on another trip with WestWorld Tours.”

Visit Alaska and the Yukon by coach with a day cruise or coach with a seven night cruise with WestWorld Tours.
