Skagway’s White Pass Rail

In Skagway, my favorite port in Alaska, we took a ride on the White Pass Railroad where the scenery along the route is some of the most breathtaking scenery I have ever experienced.

One of the best trips ever!
Diane is such a great person/agent to work with. She knows exactly what to look for and makes sure all the little details are included for us, things we don't think about. We have/will always use Diane for our travels!

Trip of a lifetime!
Diane and I sat down and reviewed all the possible ports of call and what we could do in each place. That was so helpful and proved to enrich our experiences. She also helped chose a room and shared some of her experiences. She answered all our questions from that day until the day we left. We are back just one week and would like to return.

41st anniversary trip to Hawaii
Diane was very professional and worked with me to obtain exactly what we were looking for in the trip to three islands—Hawaii, Maui, and Oahu. She was prompt in returning phone calls and/or emails. We had a missed connection on way home and she immediately started looking for flights. It was comforting to know we had someone we could trust if we had any problems. Thank you, Diane.
