Despite less than ideal weather, Noah made our tour fun and memorable. You can tell he loves this small town and it's history and stopped at some beautiful spots for pictures. Recommend over the train (same views, no stopping or commentary)

Mike was a great. Funny, informative, lots of stories. The one about the polar bear was very interesting. Stopped at several places along the way. Didn't realize all the earthquakes that the area has. here again another great story. Went into Canada {about 1 mile}. Was having him take photo's of our group and when viewing, guess who's face was one of the shots. Very funny. This guy makes the tour great. Much better than the train and you get commentary that's different.

Mike was very friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful. He went out of his way to make sure we got great pictures. We really enjoyed the bus tour. The White Pass Railroad was good but this bus tour is better because it stops and there are many opportunities for photos.

Mike was an excellent tour guide. Informative and funny, with just the right amount of stops. Much closer to the sites than the train.
