After a lot of research, we chose T N Tours for our Skagway excursion. We are all so glad we did! My husband and I, my parents, his parents, and his grandpa took an Alaskan cruise to celebrate my parents' 35th wedding anniversary. We range in age from 33 to 89 and have a lot of different interests when taking a tour. (Grandpa also has limited mobility.) I'd say we are a complicated group. =) Since this was the only day our whole family would spend together doing the same excursion, I wanted to make sure we got it just right.
T N Tours was perfect! Michele made booking the tour and all of the arrangements a breeze. I could already tell we were in good hands. Tom picked us up the day of our tour and took us to the train station. We rode the train to Fraser, BC where Tom picked us up. I am SO glad we had more of a tour than the train. Though the train was a cool concept, the fog was as think as jam. After 20 minutes, we couldn't see ANYTHING out the window. What a disappointment!
Fortunately, once Tom drove us into the Yukon, the clouds lifted, and we got beautiful views. We had so much fun exploring the Yukon and the different sites as a family. Tom was incredibly knowledgeable about the history of the gold rush. We had a few people who are huge history buffs and a few who just wanted to take pictures. Tom was able to please both groups, which is pretty tough. On our trip, we saw six bears (4 of were right by the van!) and 21 dahl sheep. Our bakery visit was delicious.
After returning home, we all agreed this was our favorite day. This is one of those "once in a lifetime" trips, especially with so much family together. I wanted the day to be one that we could treasure as a family. T N Tours combined great logistics, professionalism, an engaging and fun tour guide, and an understanding of the must see sights. I couldn't have asked for more. Thank you for such a wonderful day!
