About Skagway Yukon Custom Van Tours
Offering custom, small-group tours in Skagway, Alaska. Owner-operator Thomas Pickerel has 27 years of experience showing his amazing backyard to Alaskan visitors. 2018 was the inaugural year of his company, Skagway Yukon Custom Van Tours, and it went great! With a maximum group size of six, my van allows for a more personal connection and easy communication. Why not go with the guy that has the most experience driving tours in Skagway? I am that guy, and I'd be honored and happy to show you why I still like my amazing office, which stretches 75 miles from Skagway, Alaska to Emerald Lake, Yukon Territory. You owe it to yourself to be nice to yourself, and travel changes your life, always in a good way.
