We booked Dave's tour after reading many many 5 star reviews while we were on an Alaska cruise last week. We opted for an independent tour instead of a ship organized tour because we wanted to be in a small group rather than herded into a big bus with 50+ people. Boy are we glad we made that decision. We... More

On time pick-up, wonderful sense of humour and extensive local lore and knowledge. Group of 9 and none of us believed his "embellished" stories particularly his Gulf Stream. Majestic views (of course), side trips to almost gold bath-tubs and rhubarb contests, cemeteries and spectacular sites w/o hordes! Even showed us how to avoid a speeding ticket. Took Dave up and...

Right from the moment we called Dave for more info to the very end when they dropped us in town after the Skagway Yukon tour, Dyea Dave were fantastic. They guide was funny, informative and infused ease in the tour. We actually ended up coming super late to the designated pick up spot having to make everyone else in the... More

We prefer small group tours and this tour proved that point all day. You are driven in a small tour van rather than a large bus. We could stop anytime someone wanted to and of course the driver had local knowledge of where to stop. If a big bus had beat us to a place, we just cruised on by... More

Great tour. Each view is more beautiful than the next. I highly recommend this over the train tour as this goes inland much further and you get to see so much more. Also, you stop in a little quaint town for lunch. Overall, I had an amazing time. Don't forget your passport!

Dave was great. He was kind, considerate. He goes out of his way to let us enjoy our trip. He stops at places where he thinks would be of interest to us. He hardly counts the time. We saw him do a service to a group of travelers with a cranky and complaining elderly, and he handled it so well,... More

We booked via the net before leaving home, and hit the jackpot. We were met in the bus parking lot beside the wharf by Dave (with top hat), who introduced us to Saskia our driver and personal guide for the day. And when I say personal, I mean they went ahead with the tour for just the 2 of us.... More

Prior to bookiing this excursion for four we had had excellent communication via email from Kathy, Dave's office lady. Dave met us at our boat and directed us to our guide for the day, Jeanine. Our bus was full, about 16 of us, from two ships. We had an interesting mix of people on the bus, 8 from the lower... More

We did this tour when our cruise stopped in Skagway in early Sept. We were lucky enough to get Dave himself as our driver. He meet us at the cruise dock and we picked up several other people and we were on our way. He knew all the best stopping points for viewing and photos. We went to Emerald lake... More

We were fortunate to have Dave himself guide this tour, it was like an old friend showing you the sights, he knew the best vantage points for photography and of course the Sourdough Bakery for a light lunch. Dave met us at the dock drove us to the railway station and them met us at Fraser after the train. Dave... More
