Our tour guide Mike was definitely the best! He made what was already a beautiful tour even better. We were able to stop and see the very picturesque scenery up close without being rushed. No questions went left unanswered as he was very knowledgeable about the town and history of the tour itself.

We took the 2.5 hour tour with Andy from the cruise ship terminal. He was an excellent guide and kept us entertained throughout the drive with interesting information and stories.

Taking a minibus tour to the white pass summit is a good alternative to the train as it allows for various stops for photos en route, is cheaper and provides, IMO, for a more personal guide service.

Our tour slso included a stop at the gold rush graveyard which is a good 30 minute walk out of town.

Our tour guide, Doug, was an excellent source of the history of Skagway! He was completely delightful. Skagway was a delightfully scenic town set in the beauty of Alaska. We loved Doug’s storytelling about the gold rush and the early settlers. I cannot recommend this tour enough. The bus was comfortable and it was especially nice on a slightly rainy day!

We opted for the van excursion instead of the train ride. It was definitely an exciting experience. The tour guide Mike did an excellent job in telling historical facts and also made all the stops for us to savor the place and the moment and even took our photos. It was a chilly, rainy and no sun but despite all that, there was not a moment of disappointment here. Mike was superb, he must love his job. The lady who booked our tour was also very nice and explained well what was to be expected. Worth every penny and precious time.

Our guide, Connor, was very personable and well informed about the area. I liked the walk through the cemetery to the waterfall the best. The scenery was nice but not as impressive as I expected. There were only five people on our bus which made it a lot more like a private tour.

Beautiful scenery on a restored vintage narrow gauge train, with very well maintained and clean cars, which were very comfortable. Plenty of windows, so all passengers had good views. No matter on which side of the train you sat, as your view was from one side going, and the other side on return. The history of the area was well explained during the trip. Due to Canadian restrictions, the train no longer crosses the border, but we felt the trip was fine anyway. Our tour company added a bus tour of the town, which was a nice addition.

Frontier Excursions met us at the port and were very organized with an extremely clean tour bus. Patrick was our awesome guide. He shared a lot of historical and current events along our ride to the summit and around the town of Skagway. We enjoyed seeing beautiful waterfalls, a view of the train in motion, the majestic mountains, hearing about bears(but fortunately did not come across) and a scenic overview of Skagway. Definitely recommend.

Found this gem during our cruise stop to Skagway. Highly recommend. Booked outside of our cruise and for this stop highly recommend. The staff was excellent. Our tour guide Bev, was amazing. Excellent tour that took us to the Canadian border and back to town. Thank you for great service. Would highly recommend.

Interesting tour and stories about Skagway and the Yukon Gold rush. Mike, our tour guide, was excellent! He is knowledgeable about Skagway history as well as what’s happening in Skagway today. He has a great sense of humor and many interesting stories! Highly recommend his tours!

Super professional in any contact I had with them. I talked with Chris (I guess is the owner) to understand some details about the trip and he was excellent to talk with, then I communicated with Katie in the office and it was a pleasure. I highly recommend this company for your excursions in Skagway.
