We really enjoyed the Yukon tour with T-Bone, our tour guide! Honestly he made the experience with all of knowledge of the area and humor (oh and he sort of saved the life of one of our passengers by grabbing him before he fell off of a cliff into emerald lake). It was a beautiful day and we really got... More

One of the best things about this tour was our guide, Tomas. We took other tours in Alaska but Tomas really went above and beyond. He has a very engaging personality and was very funny too. There is a portion of this tour that takes you to the original city cemetery and then you can walk back to Reids Falls.... More

Frontier Excursions Yukon Discovery tour was the highlight of our trip to Alaska. Our tour guide, Brook, was informative, funny and it was obvious that she loved her job. We stopped at several amazing locations along the way, had a nice lunch at Caribou Crossing, enjoyed the huge wildlife museum and dogsled teams there and drove to Emerald Lake (beautiful... More

Our guide Tomas really made this half day trip from Skagway through White Pass to the Yukon border so enjoyable. He was very knowledgable and entertained us with all sorts of interesting background history and stories. The scenery was breathtaking in early May. It was the best shore tour we experienced during our Alaskan cruise. Highly recommended. Frontier Excursions and... More

She also arranged for some black bears to make an appearance while driving north. 😉Well worth the time and money. We also had a great meal also provided by the company. Would highly recommend this...

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!
