Testimonials

  • Review by Jimmy and Wilma Smith

    "It was a great trip from the Last Frontier through gold country, The Rockies, and The Plains. It just got better, better, and better. Each day was managed to surpass the previous one. We would even consider doing it again, there was so much to see!"

  • Review by Joe Heron

    "It was some of the most jaw-dropping sceneries I have ever clapped my eyes on. The scenery on Glenn Highway out of Anchorage, Dawson City, on the ride thru the Yukon, ride on Cassiar Highway, Stewart Highway, Stewart, and ride up to Salmon Glacier. Not to mention Trans Canada Highway to Jasper and Icefields Parkway to Banff. To be honest, there wasn't much that wasn't a highlight. Every day there was something to see and marvel at."
