John took our family of 6 on the Yukon Discovery Tour and what a treat it was! John was funny and informative, telling jokes, personal stories of his own adventures and mishaps, and sharing all sorts of information about the history of the area and the gold rush. We were traveling with 4 boys ages 9-15 and he kept them... More

My family was visiting Skagway Last week (July 14, 2015) and we reluctantly bought in for a 5 hour tour. We were mostly apprehensive because tourists seem to be taken advantage of...especially cruise ship visitors. **This was so NOT THE CASE :) We were lucky enough to have Tyler, or "T-bone", offer to take us on a tour and we...

I contacted Frontier about 2 months before our Alaskan Cruise to help us with a scenic tour of the Skagway area. We were a group of 19, with most wanting to go on the White Pass Railway with 4 just wanting the bus tour. Katie was super organised with the booking process, and sorting out the logistics with our transfers.... More

We had a great tour with Tyler in Skagway. We had 6 people in our group, ranging from 6 yo to 70 yo. We met the bus just off the pier in Skagway, but beware, the pier in Skagway is very long. My MIL needed to use a golf cart to get from the ship to the end of the... More

This was an amazing tour with breathtaking scenery. I am so glad I booked this excursion for myself and my two teenage children. We loved it!!! Our tour guide, Tyler, was awesome. He provided information about the area, told interesting stories and entertained us with his great sense of humor. This is a tour not to be missed.

This is the best excursion we had on our whole ten day trip in Alaska. Mike was just GREAT. All 23 of us loved him. He had humor and knew a lot and made it a very fun day. Would use this company anytime again.

We hopped off our cruise ship without any kind of plan for what to do in Skagway. M&M Tours right by the terminal recommended this tour through Frontier as something relatively inexpensive with the best chance to see wildlife. We took a chance and signed up. Probably my only complaint from start to finish is that the guy organizing people... More

My friend went to Alaska one year ago and I saw that she had posted about Frontier Excursions. By her recommendation, my party of 9 booked with Jon at Frontier Excursions. When we got off of the Disney boat, he was there with a small bus and a sign. He was easy to identify and we went and picked up... More

With a plethora of options to choose from in Skagway offering white pass railroad packages, you won't go wrong with Frontier. Outstanding customer service, a great trip and attention to detail highlighted the trip. In addition, Frontier offers an excursion that goes further up into Fraser, BC whereas if you book through your ship, this isn't an option.

My family and I took van number (Tag GYE738) and were very disappoint. This driver is a bully and has no customer service. I saw her try to fight another customer at the welcome to Alaska sign. I was ashamed to be in her van.
