Nothing spectacular about this tour but it really is pretty fun. It will take you to places you are not likely to see on your own and the tour guide is humorous, chatty, boisterous, audacious, and just flat-out entertaining. Lots of history. Mostly real, maybe some not so much. Who cares? It's just for fun.

Our delightfully theatrical guide Vicky, took us around Skagway in a fabulous, restored vintage street car. Skagway frankly, could have been a little on the dull side...but she brought the history alive with her eccentric style and everyone onboard was clearly delighted. Very much worth a trip if you have a few hours and you want the past and present... More

We chose this excursion because it was inexpensive and offered a tour of Skagway. We learned some of the history of the town, had a tour of the downtown, visited the cemetery, and a scenic overlook. If you're looking for something to do in Skagway and are traveling on a budget, this tour is for you. Even if you're not... More

To he honest we did this tour because it was inexpensive. It's a 90 minute tour that takes you further out than you would walk from the cruise ship. At one point you do go to a pretty great scenic overlook too. The ladies who run the tour dress up & play characters from the 1800's. They tell you animated... More

We were going on the White Pass & Yukon train in the afternoon and wanted to do a city tour of Skagway vs shopping again. What luck when we found the Street Car Tour available at the cruise ship dock . . . we boarded the big yellow bus & had a wonderful driver/guide, Sebrena . . . she was... More

We chose this tour because it sounded interesting. It turned out to be so much more than expected! The street cars were quaint, and our guide, Valerie, was super informative and FUN! We were a little perplexed at the beginning - the town is pretty small, how can you have a 90 minute tour, but we saw so much more... More

Our drive and guide, Peggy Hoff - dressed as if she stepped out of the 1898 Klondike Gold Rush - toured us slowly through tiny Skagway, Alaska (pop. 1,000) which was jumping off point for most of the miners who rushed here in 1898 to find their fortune. She drove a bright-yellow 1927 Mack Model AB touring bus, similar to... More

This tour was recommended by our river guide, Joe Stephenson. Plus, we overheard part of their presentation while we waited for the river tour. We heard this young woman say, "We are the good girls, our pantaloons are white; the bad girls wear red." We were interested. We got back from the river tour, had lunch and headed for the... More

I was originally skeptical about the tour...What can you say about a town like this? Well, I was so wrong. This tour set the bar so high that it was my favorite in the two weeks in Alaska. Our tour guide was Sabrina. Dressed in period outfit, she was sassy, witty and full of historical information about Skagway. She drove... More
