Comfortable bus ride- plan for a long day. Stop half way in Carcross, Yukon (Canada) for lunch (Chicken, coleslaw, baked potato, bun and donuts). Tour the animals- donkey, llamas, horses, mush dogs and puppies. Taxidermy museum, gift shop and more! Our guide was SO amazing with so much knowledge of both Alaska and the Yukon. We had no idea the... More

On our first trip to Skagway in May 2012, we took the train excursion. At the top, the snow was higher than the train. That was amazing, but we had no idea of the marvelous scenery up there and beyond. This time we booked the (cheaper) small group Frontier van excursion to the Yukon border through Viator, and we saw... More

T-Bone was the best guide of the three excursions I took on my Alaskan cruise. This trip, with his knowledge was a wonderful experience. Beautiful sights through several different temperate ranges filled with T-Bone's expertise made for a great day. It helps too if you want to have a blast!

We booked the Yukoner tour for our Alaska Cruise trough Skagway Shore Excursions webpage. We met the guide Mike right at the pier, we took the bus and he showed us around Skagway and the Yukon telling us legends of the Tlingits, information of the area, nature, history and their actual life style (it's a town of about 1,000 people...

We only had the day in Skagway while on a cruise on the Explorer of the Sea. We chose not to do a company excursion but chose Frontier excursions and adventures and were so glad we did. Our tour guide JJ was fantastic and the bus was not at capacity so there was plenty of room to spread out. She... More

Loved our bus driver, bus 7129, the young man who told the story of the old man that paid him $20 to have time alone and left his wife at a stop. The old man told the driver his wife was in the potty on the bus when he came thru to count. The driver had to turn back an... More

We chose the 6 - 6 1/2 hour day trip into the Yukon, and were picked up in town - pick up also from cruise ships. Left at 9.30. The tour cost $99 + tax and included lunch at Caribou Crossing, where we saw dogs, puppies and the most amazing stuffed animals. Going over the mountain we encountered for, but... More

Did the train last time. It doesn't compare. It doesn't even go where the van goes. Our driver/guide Mike Swayze took us up the highway to White Pass describing all of the points of significance and stopping at many points along the way to give us picture taking opportunities. If Mike is your guide, be sure to ask him about... More

Incredible views, lots of history, great lunch and a funny guide. Our tour guide even taught us some new camera and photography tricks. Definitely the highlight of our Alaska trip.
