In August we visited Skagway while on an Alaskan cruise. On recommendation from other travellers I booked a tour with Beyond Skagway Tours for our time in the port of Skagway. The booking process prior to leaving Australia was very efficient after looking on their website to see what they had to offer. I booked a seven hour tour and... More

I was part of a group of 8 that went on a combination 7 hour van and 2 hour train tour with Kate on September 16th. Our tour started in the fog, so we skipped the first couple of stops because there was literately nothing we could see. We stopped to build an Inukshuk, a rock person, and explore an... More

We were in Skagway Aug. 3 on a gorgeous sunny day. We walked around Skagway on our on for awhile before Brian picked us up. It is a small town so finding a meeting place is really easy. He picked us up in the minivan and we talked about what we wanted to see and where we wanted to go... More

It's never too late to post a review with us! We so appreciate your review. Glad to hear that your tour with me was so enjoyable. That bear was something I've never seen before either.

We went with Becky on a day trip from Skagway to Carcross in the Yukon Territory on August 20, 2014. What a wonderful day.

That will long be the best bear sighting yet! How often do you see a bear running over a bridge while a train chases it? Thank you for posting the video on my FB page; that was an awesome sight to see! Glad you enjoyed my raspberries! More

Nothing better than a customized, private tour while you are in Skagway. Our ship offered nothing close to this. Four of us shared a comfortable SUV while Becky gave us a splendid tour from Skagway to Emerald Lake. (Be sure to go all the way to Emerald Lake - it's worth it!) She shared her extensive local knowledge and gave... More

I booked our group of 8 for this private tour. In spite of having our ages range from 4 years old to 76 years old...everyone had a good time.
