I'm getting ready to reserve my excursions soon, and I'm torn between two tours. I definitely want to take the White Pass Railway. The two tours I'm looking at are the Yukon Expedition & White Pass Scenic Railway or the Best of Skagway tour. The primary difference is that one tour visits the Red Onion Saloon (Best of Skagway) and the visits Carabou Crossing.
Does anyone have a recommendation? If we book the Yukon Expedition & White Pass Scenic Railway, is there time in town to visit the Red Onion?
Oh, I loved Alaska so much more than I anticipated. I'm a hot weather person, (suffereing away here in Boston), so I was expecting the worst as far as weather and tempature goes, and I was thrilled it wasnt that cold.
That picture of the Red Onion makes me want to go back soon.
My wife and I did the bus-train trip in 2003. It was great! Took the bus up to Carcross and back down to Frazier. Then rode the train back to Skagway. We also dropped in the saloon after we got back to town.
