Riding the City Tour Bus was lots of fun with our tour guide Elsie at the helm pointing out the landmarks along the way. It was a relatively short tour since this town is just so tiny running about 5 blocks wide and 20 deep with a population of around 900. We learned about the days of the Gold Rush... More

We learned a great deal about the city of Skagway, were taken to a beautiful overlook and learned all about Soapy Smith. We highly recommend this tour. A... More

Very good tour with 'fine actress' (Nicky) who reminded me of Ruby Wax. Not only did we learn about Soapy Smith the local historical villian but also how the people of modern Skagway live.

We had a marvelous driver/hostess for our tour. She was extremely enthusiastic and funny. Her history of Skagway was accurate and entertaining.

We recently visited Skagway on a cruise ship and took this tour. It was the best, most informative and feel good tour we have ever been on. The guides are fun and have a vast knowledge of the area. We highly recommend this tour for all ages.

These buses are a great way to see all around town, learn history of Skagway, and meet some great ladies who are happy and eager to share the Skagway, Alaska story.

We had a wonderful tour of Skagway heightened by the humour of Mikala our guide. Definitely would recommend this to anyone visiting for the first time. A nice bit of history and humour.

Get to know the charming little town of Skagway and it's history on this tour. Our guide was the lovely and charming Michaela, dressed in period costume and full of fun stories, which she really brought to life. We toured the Main Street and through the residential area, out towards the ghost town of Dyea, to a lookout where you... More
