Becky, Kristen, and the whole team/family helped give me the wedding of my dreams. We had an intimate ceremony near Pullen Creek, followed by our reception on board the train through the Summit. I never imagined that I would have my reception on a train riding through gorgeous mountains. This was Becky's idea and it was amazing. Her and her... More

I booked this trip because I wanted to do more than ride the train and boy did I ever get my money's worth. We had 5 adults and 1 child ( they provided a car seat) in our party. Kristen was our tour guide and she was extremely knowledgeable and her excitement was delightful. She took us everywhere we wanted... More

Our tour guide, Tom, was fantastic! We enjoyed the whole day, having a private guide who was knowledgeable about the history, knew the area like he had lived there his whole life, and was fun to tour with. We loved that we set the pace and if we wanted to add a stop or stay longer at a stop or... More

The only way to go in Skagway. Skip the crowds going to the train and do the Tour instead . Kristen Daniels was our guide. We had a group of 7 in a van that went from the town of Skagway ( cruise ship dock) to Carcross ,Yukon Territory . We did stops at at Yukon Suspension Bridge , Emerald... More

Jeff, so happy to read your review about your tour, going Beyond Skagway! Glad to hear you enjoyed the puppies, the desert, Emerald Lake and the bridge! I believe you must have taken a 7 hour tour with us, in order to have had time for all those activities. Great choices for how to spend your time with us! Kristen... More

Easy to work with them to set up our day. Kristen was our guide and she was delightful. I'm sure she has done the tour a million times, but her excitement and enthusiasm made it seem like it was the first time. She was also very in tune to what our group could handle (we were with my older parents)... More

I just don't know where to start. I feel like I'm bragging on family!!!! We booked a private tour "beyond Skagway, into the Yukon" with Becky because I had been with her on my previous trip to the area. (It was actually the "Pet the Pups Tour") The tours are limited to one family, or group, per tour so you... More

I had the pleasure of working with Becky over the course of this summer on a few weddings she handled for visiting brides. Finding people with her kind of attention to detail and professional rapport with other vendors in and around Skagway is a real asset. For a worry free and enjoyable destination wedding in Skagway I can't imagine a... More

I booked this tour months in advanced. From beginning to end staff communication went smoothly. Emily was our tour guide and she was excellent. It was like being picked up by a friend who was going to drive you around and showed you the best spots. On our day of the tour the weather was not great, but Emily suggested... More

Your review reminds me of why we offer tours in vans that have a passenger seat next to the driver. We want out tours to have the feeling that we are friends taking you out to see our favorite sights. We don't want to be "just another tour" bus.

This tour was one of the highlights of our trip! We had a very large group with kids, and our guide Jay was very patient and accommodating.

Everything about this tour was wonderful from booking through our awesome guide Kristen. The only thing that didn't cooperate was the weather (rainy) but we didn't allow that to slow us down. We learned and saw so much thanks to our guide. I'm so glad we booked this rather than doing one of the ship excursions.
