I agree to check first what is being offered by the cruise line, check the times you are in Skagway, and then look at what the tours include. One only goes to the Summit and back and others go to Carcross with a bus return. You can go to Fraser Station and then do some gold panning/meal, etc. If you want to see the most scenery I'd say one of the train/bus trips that go to Carcross either directly or stopping at Bennet would be an ideal choice.

Here are several links where you can see pictures and a map of where the train goes and where the road is.
