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

My small group was lucky to get Dave as our tour guide when the initial tour bus was overbooked. His humor, knowledge, and sheer enthusiasm to share the beauty of the Yukon up to and including Emerald Lake, was absolutely wonderful. Frequent stops for pictures and berry-picking kept all of us happy and contented. I absolutely recommend his tours!

Wish I could remember the name of the funny lady who drove our bus.(she had just returned from NZ) one of the better tours we have done anywhere in the world. Informative, entertaining and just an absolute pleasure. I'm guessing you have to be off the top shelf to work for Dave. Hope he finds his passport!
