Fun tour guide

This was a fun and informative narration of the Skagway area and history. Even the good guy was bad! Doug, out tour guide, was excellent and funny.

Nice street car ride throughout the small town of Skagway, which is very walkable on your own! Does go into the history of the Skagway itself. If you have trouble walking around then this is the perfect tour for you, but if you can walk then go yourself, you have many hours to explore on your own. A lot to... More

We had Nicky as our tour guide. She was a mine of information and a very entertaining guide. Loads of history and the information was both interesting and informative. A little pricey but considering that have 5 months to make 12 months income, understandable.

We enjoyed this tour. We rode all around the area in an cute little street car listening to historical stories of the area. I thought it was a cool way to learn about the area and to see the sights. We got a good view of Skagway from the overlook area.

A ride in an original streetcar through the streets of Skagway. A bit of history, a bit of lore and a inside look at the people who call Skagway home. Our tour guide Shawna (the "little lady who lives across the street from the fire station") did an excellent job at all 3. She shared story, told us about the... More

I went on the Skagway street car tour while on a cruise (Carnival Legend). As soon as the ship docks the small town of Skagway is located very close to the port (about a 4 min walk). Don't waste your money on this tour. You can easily walk into town from the port ( even the elderly wouldn't have a... More

Our guide, Nikki, was so entertaining and fun. Also very informative. I felt that I really got some interesting information about life in Skagway, both during the cruise season and off of the cruise season. Things I never would have known about the history of the town, how they manage everyday needs like food and hospitals, and just a general... More

I LOVED this little ride! Actually done in June 2014, this was one of the less expensive excursions in Skagway but oddly our street car had very few people on board during the first of our cruise ship's passenger dump off. The guide was great. Gave us area history, current events and had personal stories on what it's like to... More

A tame but great trip. Not really expensive for what it is but not a lot to see in Skagway anyway. Informative a really fun commentary throughout it gets you through and out of town with a photo stop and visit to the genuine local cemetery steeped in history. Check out Soapy Smiths grave and his killer's too. No loo... More
