Matt was amazing! He was fun, interesting, and super knowledgeable about the area. He was also on time, had water bottles available, and keeps his van super clean. I noticed him cleaning the van in between stops - that's the level of service he provides!...More

We toured with Matt when our cruise stopped in Skagway. Matt did a great job getting us to some amazing scenery, finding good spots to hike, and letting us stop whenever we wanted. He even took us on a detour for some Canadian candy bars....More

A must! Matt is great. Don’t waste your time or $ with a group tour where you can’t do half the things. Or get stuck on a train. This is where you want to book. Scenery is breathless and we lived the entire tour!

Hello: Unfortunately I am already booked on August 1st. Also, most vans like mine only hold up to 14 passengers. With a group of 19 people, you will need to find a 25 passenger bus or two 14 passenger vans. --Matt
