I was trying to organise my own tours rather than take one from the cruise line's extensive range as I like to be a bit more independent (I proved myself right when the one trip I did book through the cruise company was appallingly bad). With the first tour I decided on in Skagway the company told me that they... More

Loved taking the Emerald Lake tour this summer during our Alaskan cruise. Our driver (forgot her name but is related to Dave), was fun, to the point, and kept us entertained the whole drive. It was a much better way to see the sights than in a huge tour bus, I highly recommend this tour for the value and experience!

Had arranged with Dave to pick us up from Fraser BC when we got off of the White Pass Railroad and boarded his tour bus. Dave is an eccentric tour guide with sharp wit and a great sense of humour. We enjoyed having him as our guide as much as we enjoyed the tour. It was great having someone so... More

A friend who had gone to Alaska and Skayway suggested we go on a Dyea Dave tour instead of a Cruise excursion. What a good choice that was! Saskia, our guide, was wonderful. She was knowledgeable, friendly, professional and lots of fun. It was one our most memorable Alaskan experiences. We got to eat in a cute Restaurant along the... More

I didn't want to go through the cruise line to book my tour but preferred a local company. I ended up booking with Dyea Dave and it turned out to be a wonderful choice. I know a lot of people go with the White Pass train, but I wanted to do something besides just go up and back. With the... More

This tour is a great value for the money. My husband and I went in mid September and the weather was a little damp and rainy, but for the most part it held off. I was fine in a light fleece, but you might want to bring a jacket or some sort of warm rain gear if you are not... More

We called to reserve a seat with Dave, and he told us sternly to "BE SURE WE WEREN'T LATE" for our pickup. We were on time, but Ruth (Dave's sister and driver that day) didn't show up. We tried calling several times and did not get through to anyone. Finally, we talked to an assistant who said she couldn't contact... More

Myself along with my fiance booked with Dyea Dave 5 years ago for a private tour of Skagway, AL. So when we booked another cruise to Alaska, I knew we would want to use them again. We had a group of 10 this time and Kathy and Dave couldn't have been more accommodating. They kept in touch with me over... More
