I contacted Beccy of Beyond Skagway Tours after reading other Trip Advisor reviews. She didn't disappoint. We visited Skagway on a cruise ship as a family of 5, from teen to 80s. Beccy recommended the Lil Log Cabin for a picnic lunch which I duly ordered and we picked up en route to a day exploring the Yukon. The weather... More

Wow, it has taken me so long to write this; we went in June 2015, and time has flown. I had wanted this review to be perfect and include all of the amazing adjectives I could find, but I will just tell you what I can. This was our second cruise to Alaska, the first being June 2012. We had... More

So, it took you a long time to think about your tour description... and it shows! What a nice review, and well thought out. So glad that your tour with Tom proved to be every bit as good, or better than your tour in 2012. It sounds like you got to do all the things you chose to do! That... More

My wife and I along with another couple were recently booked and prepaid a tour. A very rare occurrence happened when our cruise ship along with two other ships was prevented due to a storm from entering the Skagway port. We contacted Beyond Skagway Tours and advised them of the situation and they immediately refunded ALL of our money and... More

So sorry that your ship didn't reach Skagway. Your day, was the first time that three out of four ships could not land in town, due to wind. We were happy to refund you your money, since this was out of your control. Come back! And we'll show you a great tour!! More

My husband and I, including son and his fiance, just returned from a Princess cruise to Alaska. I am so glad we decided to do this private tour instead of touring with a larger group. The on-line booking was very easy. Becky answered my questions by email very promptly and asked us ahead of time how we wanted to customize... More

Thank you for your review of your "Great Day with Jay"! It's been an awesome summer, and having Jay on our team is part of the reason! Glad you got to enjoy the sled dogs/puppies, before the crowds arrived, and that you enjoyed getting off the beaten path. Smaller, private customized groups are able to enjoy so much more in...

Just got back from our tour with Reed through the Yukon and then the train down. When we first learned he was a former 35 year Park Ranger we were thrilled. He kept us entertained and it was a perfect experience. He suggested great things, we learned a lot, and were never rushed. My 7 and 9yo's loved the scavenger... More

Reed was an "Amazing Park Ranger", and we are very happy to have him as a part of our team! Glad you enjoyed his vast knowledge of the area, and the Scavenger Hunt too. The hunt makes the tour more engaging and fun for everyone. Thank you for writing your review. We really appreciate every one of them! More

So happy we chose a 'private' Yukon tour - had most of the awesome spots to ourselves since we were ahead of big vans & bus groups from the cruise ships. Was definitely one of the best tours we've ever taken! We picked 'Beyond Skagway' based on reviews stating "great for families", it most certainly was! Our family group was... More

Thank you for your kind words about your Beyond Skagway Tour! Thomas is a professional photographer, which is a great bonus. He has a good eye, when it comes to taking photos! It's nice to hear that your tour was "full of laughter"! This is the stuff vacations should be made of. A fun time for all, is our goal. More
