Default Yukon Jeep Adventure

We have booked this excursion through Princess. It says we will "drive along the Klondike Highway and head off the beaten path for amazing vistas accessible only by off-road vehicles. View Pitchfork Falls, Dead Horse Gulch and Tormented Valley en route to Carcross and its namesake desert."

Has anyone done this tour? How much off-road time will we have? Are the views the same or better than those from the train tour? I want to make sure that we made the right choice by booking this tour over the train ride. Thanks for your help!

I consider that trip to be nothing more than the world's most expensive car rental. "Off-road" time is minimal, they only go where locals take regular cars, and they don't go far enough up the mountain (the mountain that I live on) to get the good views (only Frontier Excursions does, in guide-driven 4x4s).
