We booked a tour with Frontier Excursions outside of our cruise line and had an outstanding time on the Yukon Discovery Tour. As they stated, this is the best experience. Our guide Tyler was terrific. He made sure we had plenty of stops to see things and take pictures. In addition, you can’t beat the BBQ chicken lunch at Caribou... More

Our driver, Candy, was very gracious to all passengers on our tour. She took time to offer the history of the town and the stops along the tour. The only caveat is to drain your bladder before starting up the mountain. You really don't wan to use the one rest room (out house) on the mountain.

We decided to wait until we got to Skagway to see if any tours were better/cheaper than those booked on the Cruise lines. We were happy we did this - we found this fantastic small bus tour to the Yukon, JJ was our guide and it was a fabulous tour. It was a cheaper option and we loved it! JJ... More

This was a reasonably good tour, and their web site described it accurately. We especially enjoyed the stops at the waterfall and near the border, and got to see a bear. We did, however, feel a little rushed, without quite enough time to spend at each stop. We were concerned about our safety due to the driver's (Tyler's) frequent use... More

With the disclaimer that the unusually (as we were told) lovely weather (bright skies, low wind) is undoubtedly biasing my review, this tour was a worthwhile experience. We booked the 3.5hr Yukoner tour ($65/person) led by Mike, who was well-informed, entertaining, and considerate. The bus made plenty of stops for us to admire and capture the gorgeous vistas--my photos look... More

I would highly recommend this tour over the rail tours that most take. This was very personal and we got to travel to and from the Yukon and make many stops. Our tour guide Brooke was by far one of the best we encountered. She was knowledgeable and funny. She was able to point out some wildlife and even picked... More

My husband and I were on an Alaskan Cruise with my family, and one of the ports we stopped in was Skagway. My mom wanted us to do an excursion together, and she booked this tour through Frontier Excursions in lieu of the train. This was the best decision ever! We had a private van (there were only 6 of...

Took the Yukon Discovery tour with Frontier Tours while visiting Skagway on a cruise ship. My husband was skeptical of a 'bus' tour when I told him I had booked this, but he loved it and it was one of the highlights of our cruise. Our group was about 24 people or so, and our small bus was quite comfortable... More

We took this excursion instead of the train so we could get out and see some sights. We were lucky enough to get Heidi Sutter as our tour guide. She is the best. If you take this excursion be sure to request her.

This was by far the best excursion we took on our Alaskan cruise. Brooke was our guide and was very pleasant, funny, and knowledgeable. She knew just where and when to stop for photos, scenic views and where wild life would hang out. It was a blessing that Brooke was our guide and highly recommend Frontier Excursions.
