We cruised to Alaska in August 2013 for our 20th anniversary celebration. We booked our wedding re-vows with Beyond Skagway Tours and couldn't have made a better choice. The day was absolutely amazing! Becky took care of everything for us - from arrangements with a historic church in the Yukon to flowers, cupcakes, and pictures. She did an outstanding job... More

Wow! How nice to receive a mid-winter review of your day with me last summer. I remember the details of our day together well, and how loving your family was! The wedding vow renewal in the Carcross Church was fun! I also loved how your whole family loved to explore some of the places we stopped at... beyond the parking... More

We had organised this excursion after reading the reviews here. On the day there were just the 2 of us with Becky. Becky was very friendly and made sure we had a great day, stopping at numerous places so we could take photos. She made recommendations without pressure and we decided to do the helitour after having our flight cancelled... More

Hi Peppajay! I remember your day with me well! It was also my first heli-ride into the Yukon! I loved it, and thank you that you decided to go, so I too, could see how amazing the country is up there! To see all that land from the air, without people on it, is pretty cool! The weather in the... More

My fiancé and I wanted to get married in Alaska. We wanted something different than getting married on the ship. I found Becky, from Beyond Skagway tours. She planned everything for me, cupcakes, wine, flowers,videography , hair , makeup and set up the tour. We arrived in Skagway, my mother, sister and I got off the ship and Becky was... More

Pat was a great guide very knowable about the area, stopped we're and when we wanted. The tours booked though the cruise lines were on large tour bus with limited stops and did not go into the Yukon. We also left Skagway before most of the tours having much of the great country to our selves, mostly we encountered other... More

Eric, Thank you for your great review! I like it that you didn't mind getting up early for your tour. 7:30am is our favorite departure time, getting us on the road before anyone else, so it has a feel of true wilderness! So glad you had a great time on your tour! More

See my sister-in-law Beth's review of our Sept 10 excursion with Becky.

My sister in law arranged this tour and it was every thing the reviews had said it would be. Becky was our guide and she knew all the right places to stop for the best photos opportunities and how to be there when the busses weren't there. She also stopped and pointed out some mountain sheep which we would never... More

We planned a 7 hour tour for 12 people in 2 vans. We had 4 teens in our group and they initially thought 7 hours was too much, but the time went by really fast, and they ended up having lots of fun! Kevin and Brian were our guides, and were funny and full of interesting facts and information that... More

We recently had a wonderful tour of Skagway and the Yukon with Kate from Beyond Skagway Tours. It was nice for the 4 of us to have a personal tour after spending hours on busses, trains, and planes. The ability to stay away from the crowds of tourists was a huge benefit.

Thank you, Scott, for posting your review and photos! I love the photo of Kate with the girls and the sweet husky pup. And the scenery along the way is more awesome than any in Alaska! I drive it almost everyday and still find amazing things to ooh and aah about! I'm so glad you enjoyed your day with Kate. More
