This is a great way to get an overall idea of Skagway. The running commentary was well done . You drive out of town to overlook the place and once back in town the musical of Soapy comes to life. Beware if you sit in the from seat you could manhandled by the girls. Weather was sunny.

This was a fun way to see the tiny town of Skagway and learn a bit of the history. Valerie (or Colleen, or Sheila, or whatever her name was) is passionate about being a year-round resident and sharing stories. The history is told in a very entertaining manner. I'm not going to spoil the fun. Take the tour and find... More

Skagway is quite small but this bus tour encompasses everything. Our guide was Valerie who played the part well and brougt the town to life. Her re-enaction of the duel which killed Soapy Smith was great. Highly recommended.

I enjoyed this tour a lot; my husband and eight-year-old son didn't enjoy it as much as I did. The car goes all over Skagway (which is not very large to begin with) and the guide told interesting stories about some of Skagway's more colorful characters. I would recommend this tour for history geeks like myself; if you're not as... More

Our driver, Valerie, gave us an excellent tour around town including stops at a scenic overlook and the historic cemetery in town where she told us stories of some key historical figures buried there including Soapy Smith and Frank Reid. Our bus was a restored antique bus and was in great shape. It was not large, but it was clean,... More

The Skagway Streetcar tour was the best tour I think is available in the area, especially for the price. Our guide was extremely informative and knew all about the area. She permanently lives in Skagway so she could answer all the questions from a local's perspective. The history was very informative and gave us a different view of an old... More

This street car tour was worth the money. The ladies who narrate and drive the buses were excellent and took you to areas of Skagway that you could not have walked to. Would recommend this tour

What a fun way to see and learn all about Skagway's history as well as present day. Our driver, Nicki is a local dressed in a period costume. She was incredibly fun and entertaining, making our tour so much fun even in the rain! This tour is a MUST for your visit.
