Very interesting and you can see more than from the train.

The guide was knowledgeable and entertaining. He kept to the rules and had 1 couple that did not have their passports leave the bus. He explained that they could get a later trip when they went to get the passports. He explained that Canada is particular who they let into their country and we needed to get back to the United States.

Excellent coverage of the entire trip

The bus trip to the White Pass Summit was excellent. The guide explained each part of the trip very well with full details and humor. Saw some beautiful sights all throughout the route.
