Very personalized service by Dyea Dave. We loved the small van tour that was more personalized and very viewable from both sides of the van. We opted for the tour up and train back combo. We stopped where we wanted and had great photo ops. This is not the case with bus or train tours. We had a great lunch... More

A group of 10 of us (Aussies) did the Emerald Lake, Carcross tour with Dave on the morning and the Fraser to Skagway White Pass Train back in the afternoon. What a fantastic company to book with. They are very organised and make it such an easy booking. We had Dave as our guide and he is a marvel. Really... More

My husband and I did this tour in mid-September as part of an Alaskan cruise. I was searching for a personalized tour into the Yukon Territory of Canada, following the trail taken during the gold rush. Our tour guide was Renee, and on the day of the tour, there was a bit of rain, and the temperatures had begun to... More

Had read a lot of good and well-earned reports re doing this trip, one way with Dave and one way by the White Pass Yukon Railway Route. We missed Dave himself, but were very happy to get his “bookie”, Kathy, who was very knowledgeable, and took 4 of us on a very personalised journey up to the town of Fraser... More

We cannot speak highly enough of Dave McClelland and the tour we did to Emerald Lake on 31 August 2015. His generosity knows no bounds. We arrived in Skagway with no American money due to a faulty ATM on board our cruise ship. We met Dave on the pier to explain our situation but he told us not to worry... More

As stated above the views on this tour are outstanding. I choose this tour based on other reviews and wanting to travel out to Emerald Lake which our cruise ship did not offer. We left the dock at Skagway at 8am and returned at 2.30pm. There were only 4 of us on this tour and that is one of the... More

On our recent cruise to Alaska we booked a tour through Dyea Dave. We had been recommended to do this tour so we booked online and it was an easy process also with no outlay of money taking place until the tour finished. Advised to meet at the end of the pier at 7.45am where we were met by two... More

I was expecting Alaska to be ice and snow ( and some of it was) but it was the most amazing beautiful scenery! My eyes were in for a treat! Our tour guide Kathy (the bookie) was wonderful. She had all the information and took her time to make sure we saw it all. She was on time picking us... More

Trip Advisor came through for us again! After researching the Skagway excursions for our cruise, we decided that Dyea Dave's Skagway to Emerald Lake tour gave the best "bang for the buck." A few months before our trip, I sent him an email, and he verified (as stated on his website) that there is no money required upfront. He just... More
