We hired Midnight Sun Excursions for exploring Skagway and the surrounding area in May 2022. Raymie provided her expertise as a guide and resident of Skagway.

Our family had a great time viewing the amazing landscapes on our tour. Raymie was awesome and was adapted as a family member. :)

If you want an expert guide to explore Alaska, you can't do better than Midnight Sun Excursions.

I can’t believe how great our excursion was. We had been to Skagway before on a cruise and booked the White Pass Railroad because that’s what everyone tells you to do. Let me tell you there so much beyond the railroad in Skagway and you are missing out by not going to see it. We booked with Raymie and she was great. We told her what we wanted to see and then she expanded on that. We visited waterfalls and drank glacier water, a desert, suspension bridge, played with puppies at a musher’s camp, saw Emerald Lake and Torment Valley and so much more. We were traveling with my niece who has a pretty much nonexistent attention span. Raymie had activities to keep her engaged. She did a game with her to help her recognize what she was seeing, made pet rocks with her and a rock statue called an inukshuk. She is a natural teacher. When Gianna got back to the ship she told everyone about her day and how it was the best day ever. We saw several bears out feeding on dandelions and she let us spend as much time as we wanted viewing them. Never did we feel rushed. I know people are hesitant to book excursions from companies not affiliated with their cruise ship because you are told the ship won’t wait for you, but we told Raymie our all aboard time and she made sure we made it back in time, even allowed time for shopping. Our ship was in port for a short time (all aboard was 330) and we were able to accomplish all of this. Raymie is amazing and definitely gives one of the best tours we have ever taken. We have shared our experience with many friends and family and will definitely book again when we come back. Lifelong memories were created.

We booked Midnight Sun Excursions in Skagway and we thoroughly enjoyed our time with Raymie. She was fun and very knowledgable about the landscape and history of the area. Since we were there in May, much of the area was still snow covered and we weren't able to experience several stops on the tour, but I was very impressed with how Raymie communicated the information prior to arrival in Skagway, and even made accommodations to show us as much as possible. Honestly, my family is from the south and we enjoyed seeing all the snow and a frozen lake. Finally, she was wonderful with our 6 year old son even played games and made him part of the tour. She even brought her friend Ella along on the trip to help keep him occupied. I highly recommend this excursion for anyone, any age.

My family and I booked the 5 Hour Private Yukon Border Tour end of May 2022 and I have to say this was one of the best tours I have taken. Raymie, was amazing from our first contact to the day of our excursion. She explained everything and answered all of our questions. The excursion itself was amazing. She tailored it to what we wanted to see and what we were interested in allowing us more time for some things. Her knowledge of the history of Skagway and Alaska was amazing. Also, she made sure we had time to go into town for shopping and made sure to tell us all the best places to go for the best food and deals. Raymie treats you like family and we feel she is a new member of ours. The cherry on the on sundae is Raymie's dog Ella who joined us on the tour. She is an abosulete delight and a sweet bonus on the tour. Next time in Skagway we are booking Midnight Sun Excursions with Raymie to take the 7 hour Emerald Lake Tour. Thanks again Raymie.

Raymie and Midnight Sun Excursions were recommended to us by another tour company that was fully booked and we are so glad we toured with her! We booked fairly close to our cruise date so were only able to do a 2-hour tour just beyond the US/Canada border, but she had so much knowledge of local history and as a naturalist, kept our young kids entertained, took family photos for us and was absolutely wonderful in general. We learned all about the history of the area, the gold rush, drank glacier water from Bridal Veil Falls, stopped at the Welcome to Alaska sign, and felt like we were on another planet visiting Tormented Valley. We would take another tour with her in a heartbeat if we ever find ourselves back in Skagway!

Highly rec this tour of Skagway, Alaska. Our kids were 8 and 10 and they were engaged the whole time because Raymie provided activities for them to do while driving to each scenic stop. This tour is good for older people as well as the bus is big enough to store a foldable scooter. My daughter loved the dog sledding stop the most! It was amazing. Raymie was a hands on tour guide as she took the best family photos. Try the beef jerky at the suspension bridge stop!

We had a great time on the 7-hour excursion with Raymie! She was very knowledgable, super friendly, and we really appreciated how well she interacted with our kiddos. Having her little dog join us on the trip was also a pleasant surprise.
We had been on a similar excursion about 10 years prior, but Raymie made the trip that much better. She was very flexible in the stops that we made along the way and allowed for a much more personal experience of Skagway and up into the Yukon territory. Thanks Raymie!

The excursion by which all other excursions will pale in comparison. Raymie surpassed our expectations in every way possible. She kept the tour interesting and she was full of knowledge. At several points on our trip she stopped to show us plants that we could make tea with and berries we could taste. She elevated the trip by keeping us excited about the next plant we would find along our short hike! She was the entertainment for most of the trip… she was fun, efficient, funny and easy going. She kept our kids entertained with games that she planned ahead of time (so kind) and let us set the pace for our trip. We didn’t feel rushed or herded at all… we stopped at fascinating spots, she asked if she could take a family picture for us at pretty much each one! Overall, I don’t think she could have possibly surpassed our expectations any more than she did! 10/10 highly recommend. Such a warm soul.

We did the 7-hour private excursion with Raymie and it was fabulous! Raymie and Ella (her dog) are great tour guides - lot's on information and great perspective from Raymie's background as a Naturalist.

We saw some amazing sights and animals, including a bear feasting on dandelions.

Amazing day!

Our family group of 12 were lucky to have booked Raymie on our 7 hour Yukon tour.
Raymie was engaging, informative, and personable. She effortlessly adapted to our requests and custom tailored an exciting and enjoyable tour. My grandchildren loved taking off their shoes and playing in the Carcross sand. They loved drinking glacier water and gold panning. We saw bears and were constantly in wonder at the natural landscape. Ella was a great companion and Raymie a skilled photographer.
We so enjoyed this special booking. Thank you Raymie and Ella!
