Most interesting tour of the entire trip was found with Dyea Dave! He is a great ambassador to this area and provides a great trip to Emerald Lake. It is such a nice treat to be saddled to that train! Dave has a great personality. Don't hesitate to book with him - and do so before he fills up!

Don't waste your money booking a tour from the cruise line. Dave's is the best out of Skagway! We took the Emerald Lake excursion and it was amazing! Dave ensured that we beat all the buses of tourists to the prime spots. He helped us take the most beautiful photos (we-ats and me-ats, as he calls them) his knowledge of... More

We LOVED Dave and his top hat! We booked the Emerald Lake tour online before we left on our Royal Caribbean cruise 7/31-8/7/15. It was very reasonable ($79 ea). He was promptly at the dock to pick us up & patiently waited a few minutes for us, as we were a little late. He showed us the town and all... More

On a July Princess Cruise my wife and I decided to take a tour with a local guide (Dyea Dave) based upon previous Tripadvisor recommendations. Dyea Dave tours lived up to the positive reviews. We were lucky to get Dave as our guide. You tour in a van with about 15-17 fellow travelers. Dave knows the schedule of the train... More

This is the second trip we took with Dyea Dave tours, and it was even better than the first. Small group, our choice of where we wanted to go and see, and we spent the day exploring places that no other tours go to. Our group was able to enjoy each other as we traveled about. I recommend this tour... More

We went on this trip and we had Renee' one of Dave's team members. The tour started Renee' started talking about the area. She was very good and gave us all the local information as we passed the area we stopped by at various water falls and signs welcoming to Alaska and stopped for a quick early lunch at Carcross...

We took a ride up to Emerald Lake. What an amazing tour. Seeing the Lake glimmer and radiate the colors with the sun hitting it was truly amazing. Then continuing to the Carcross desert was totally unexpected. Turn a corner and all you can see is pure soft sand and hills, in the Mountains????? Incredible. Lunch at the bakery in... More

WOW!!! Dave really knows the history of the town and we saw the most amazing scenery in the Yukon Territory. We saw many lakes, streams, waterfalls, snow capped mountains, floral and fauna. Our trip took us to Carcross which is an awesome village where we got some amazing photos, great food and saw a 100 year old church which is... More

We booked our trip with Dave and team on our recent cruise. We got lucky to get Dave himself. 10 of us plus two others. Dave is great. He really knows the area and is quite the "funny man". We were laughing all day. The scenery didn't hurt either. Would definitely go with them

We heard about this tour from some friends who did the same tour a couple of years before and we were not sure how it was going to go but really it was great. They picked us up from our ship and then up to Carcross for lunch at the bakery which was surprisingly really good. We saw a bear... More
