Great, great tour! We almost took a train ride, but we're so glad we took this coach tour instead. Mike was a Grade A guide, witty and cool and well versed in the lore of the area. He made many stops for photo ops, including a great encounter with a cinnamon bear. We thoroughly enjoyed this experience and will definitely... More

In early May of 2015, my wife and I went on the YUKONER 3.5 hour trip with Mike of Frontier Excursions. Before booking, we compared some of the other trips provided by other vendors and the other trips provided by Frontier Excursions. We were very happy with our choice. First a word about our driver/guide: Mike was the best thing... More

We went on this tour with Mike last year in June 2013 and had such a great time that we had to come back again! This time we brought our kids and some extended family - a group of 9 people total - and we requested Mike as our private tour guide and driver! Everyone had a great time! Mike... More

We took the bus tour through the White Pass into the Yukon with Ryan and it was so much more than I was expecting. I thought I would be on a bus for a few hours with a stop for lunch and some picture taking opportunities, but I got so much more. From the moment I met Ryan, it was... More

We booked the Yukon Discovery tour in advance on their internet site. Booking was painless and we were met at the pier as directed. The tour? Nothing short of outstanding (despite the weather in Skagway). Our guide was excellent and he clearly knew the area and it's history! We were concerned as we headed up the pass in the rain... More

Had a great day out on White Pass Yukon Discovery tour with a wonderful guide, John. The sights and activities included were absolutely amazing and you have plenty of opportunities for photo stops. John was really knowledgeable about the area and its history, and also made the trip really fun with plenty of stories and jokes. Def a great experience.

We booked a "float" down the Dyea River with Keenan and the drive into the Yukon with Candy. Both tours were excellent and well organised off the Cruise Ship. The "float" was a peaceful experience with lots of wildlife along the way inc Eagles and Seals, some interesting commentary from Keenan about the now defunct settlement of Dyea and it's... More

From the moment Ryan welcomes us aboard you knew it was going to be a great day. Ryan has to be one of the best tour guides I have had the please of meeting (unfortunately he has returned to school) but the other tour guides were enjoyed just as much. The tour itself, from Skagway through the White Pass into... More

Arriving by Princess cruise ship in the morning with a full day to spend in Skagway, we were looking for a day trip that would fill a good portion of our day but still allow for a leisurely breakfast on board as well as some time to stroll through Skagway afterwards. We decided on Frontier Excursions & Adventures' Yukon Discovery... More
