Conner was the best guide ever. Very knowledgeable. Knew of the right places to stop for pictures. Was the photographer for everyone. If you left without plenty of pictures of you and your party, it wasn't because of our guide and driver. He even took extra time at the Yukon Border so everyone could glass the Dall Sheep we saw on the mountain. Conner. You're the best.

Our family of 4 spent the day on Bev's bus on 7/21. The sights were spectacular and so were the stories that Bev told us on the way up and back down the Klondike Highway. The bits of history she shared were fun and informative. All 4 of us HIGHLY recommend this company.

We thoroughly enjoyed this tour, our guide Brooke was fantastic. She was entertaining, passionate and you clearly see the love she has for the Yukon Territory.
A representative was waiting for us on the dock, checked we had our passports etc and pointed us to our bus, which was super comfortable and very clean. The tour was great, the scenery wow, we were lucky enough to be seeing the fall colours as well. Great stop at the Yukon suspension bridge. We would definitely recommend this tour and that fact that we were supporting a local owned business was added bonus.

My 75yr old mother and I booked this 1/2 day tour rather than taking the train because I liked the fact that the shuttle could pull over for pics. At the port, at the end of the pier, there was a man holding the Frontier sign so we introduced ourselves and then he pointed us to another staff further down, who directed us to our shuttle. There were about 20 people on our shuttle and our driver/guide was Tyler. Note: please make sure you have your passport! One of our participants did not but we waited for her to go back on the ship and get it. First Tyler did a little tour of the city on the way to White Pass and gave some history about the area. We made many stops over the next few hours to take pictures. But most interesting was hearing about the different micro-eco systems and watching the scenery change as we went through them. I learned so much! At the suspension bridge, we had about an hour to cross the bridge if we wanted, take pics, use the clean bathroom, and grab a snack if needed. Tyler returned us safely to town and gave us options of either being dropped off in the middle of town to shop or back to the ship. He pointed out locally owned shops and restaurants if we wanted to visit them rather than the ship-owned shops. You must try the spruce tip beer at Skagway brewery---interesting story behind it and it tastes great! It was a great day and great tour, especially with Tyler ("T-Bone"). Of note, I mentioned my 75yr old mother because I was concerned that she would have trouble getting on/off the shuttle---she did not. Although she did not get off at every photo op, she did cross the suspension bridge and posed for pics at the signs. So in conclusion, I highly recommend this company and if you aren't up for a full day of touring, the half day tour is perfect! Of note, I do not think this tour would be appropriate for small children, I think there may not be enough "action" for them. But perfect for photographers and science nerds like me!

We opted for this tour instead of the expensive train ride and we weren't disappointed. We loved our guide, and for the life of me, I can't remember her name. The tour was absolutely fabulous. Not only did we get to see more than what we would have on the train but we saw a bear along the roadside. Never would have seen that from the train. Our guide was very knowledgeable and made the trip more enjoyable with her great personality. We would highly recommend this experience to other travelers going to Skagway. She stopped along the way for wonderful photos and she told us stories and shared a book with awesome photos from the past. I can't say enough superlatives about this tour. Thank you for a wonderful day! We had the 10a.m. - 2p.m. time slot and it was the perfect amount of time. We are all seniors so we didn't get overloaded plus we had so much fun in the town after the tour. We all loved the town!

We booked this excursion because we thought the train trip was not going to be available until later in the month. This proved to be false and the train and appeared to be mostly full. However, given the choice today, I would definitely take the bus over the train. There are several reasons for that, first is that it is a much smaller group and hence more flexible. We also went further than the train goes and it was a small fraction of the cost.

Of course the scenery was breathtaking and the driver/guide was extremely knowledgeable and articulate. She was a full-time Alaska residence (a teacher in a one room K-12 school) and had finished the Iditarod race! Having someone that knowledgeable and accessible was a special treat. The road closely paralleled the railroad tracks so the scenery was identical. Being able to get out and walk on a beach was a special treat. Last but significant is the experience of being part of a small group rather than one of hundreds. Did I mention the cost difference? A real bargain (something very rare up there!)

Aundi, our guide, was full of knowledge and laughs throughout the trip. She is a great guide and resource. We stopped at Pitchfork Falls, Bridal Veil Falls, International Falls, Yukon Suspension Bridge, Tutshi Lake, and the Yukon border. The sights were spectacular. We got to see a cinnamon black bear.

After reading recent reviews we pre-booked our party of four seniors on this tour in the UK before setting off rather than using any of the ship's excursions.
What a great choice and excellent value it proved to be, representatives were there at the port gate to greet us and soon our mini coach arrived to take us on a most memorable four hour trip. Our guide Jessica (JJ) was superb, water was provided and nothing was too much trouble, taking multiple photographs along the way, even showing me how to use the panoramic feature on my new phone! It was not hurried in any way and the scenery was outstanding. The suspension bridge stop was good too, a chance to stretch your legs.
We would all highly recommend this tour and if you are lucky enough to get JJ, I'm sure you will have a great time.

We spent a day in the port of Skagway. This half day excursion was the best of both worlds with wanting to have time to see downtown Skagway and see some beautiful sites in Alaska and Canada. Our tour guide was friendly and courteous. The vehicle was new and clean. We stopped at a lot of beautiful scenery points that were great for pictures. Great value for the money spent!

We opted for this tour instead of the expensive train ride and we weren't disappointed. We loved our guide, T-Bone, and the tour was absolutely fabulous. Not only did we get to see more than what we would have on the train but we saw a momma bear and her 2 cubs along the roadside. Never would have seen that from the train. T-Bone was very knowledgeable and made the trip more enjoyable with his great personality. We would recommend this experience to other travelers going to Skagway.
