WestWorld provides a well rounded Yukon/Alaska experience. Every day felt like a new adventure!
Lloyd & Donna Bruner, Leask, SK
The Tour) It was worth every dime! There are two very important people on the tour. The most important person on a bus trip is the driver. And ours didn't fall short on anything. He not only displayed good driving but his good sense of humour and his treatment of the pas, treats each passenger as special, knows how to bring harmony to a group and seems to have no end of ideas to make the trip exciting and memorable.
Robert & Adeline Wuschenny, Regina
Would you recommend this tour to your friends? Yes! Yes! Yes! Did we give you value? Absolutely - I couldn't have asked for more.
