“Wonderful tour!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2012

We had a half day tour going to Gold Rush Cemetery and hearing about the local history of Soapy Smith, the beautiful Reid Falls, and Klondike Dredge Tours where we played with the sled dog puppies, heard an Iditarod trainer speak, experienced 40 below temps, panned for gold, tasted their microbrewed beer and root beer, and had lunch. It was a jam packed day of fun. As a homeschooling family, we had our 6 kids with us and were delighted with all the information that Becky shared with us--every day is a chance for learning! We especially were intrigued by the "bubble netting" by the whales. Before we even left the pier, we saw a whale that she heard was in the harbor and a seal. The best part was that she totally tailored the tour to us and kind of rolled with what we wanted to do. Thank you Becky! We hope to see you again!

“Beyond Skagway Tours is the best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2012

We had the best time with Becky. My wife and I highly recommend this tour. The scenery was great and we especially enjoyed the great sandwich in CarCross. This tour was more enjoyable than any of the "canned" cruise ship tours we took. Don't miss out, book with Becky.

“Just what we wanted!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2012

Our half-day with Becky turned out to be a customized private tour, well worth the expense. I particularly wanted to collect inspiration for paintings, and Becky seemed instinctively to find just the right sites. We could stop whenever we wanted, and she was endlessly patient with my constant, "Oh, wow! Stop the car!" One of the best days of our trip.

“Becky's the BEST”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2012

We enjoyed our time with Becky as we drove up the Klondike Highway. My interests were of photographic scenes and locations. She stopped whenever we asked and showed us many locations she knew. My wife enjoyed the visiting time with Becky while they waited on me to return. Whatever your interests are near Skagway, I'd recommend Becky ANY time EVERY time!

“Fantastic day with Becky”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 28, 2012

If you are going to Alaska and you are visiting Skagway then I can confidently recommend you call Becky and book one of her tours. Four of us landed at Skagway by ship, we previously booked her seven hour tour some months prior, it was well worth it. Becky takes you to sites that the cruise ships cannot possibly offer. We left dreary Skagway and climbed up through the valley making our way to the Canadian border (don’t forget your passports) stopping off at numerous places of interest along the way for photos. Becky said she would stop at any time at our request and she did. As the tour progressed she told us about various tales and local history. The scenery is absolutely fantastic, indescribable and we had taken some brilliant photos. We were very lucky with the weather, the sun was shining for us and you could see for miles. Distance was incomprehensible. We stopped at Carcross for lunch, just coffee and a sandwich but what a sandwich, the locals was friendly and history everywhere. Then onto more sites and on our return journey Becky took us off road along a track and we walked amongst the forest where she explained aspects of wildlife and the forest to a spot where we saw white water rushing down. We decided sometime ago to book the return journey back to Skagway via the railroad of White Pass & Yukon Route something I would seriously recommend and sure enough Becky got us to the station on time and found out what carriage we would be in so we said our goodbyes and it was back to Skagway. The train back was an amazing a feat of human engineering along with the views you would never normally see. So I would highly recommend to take the one of the various tours of Beyond Skagway and give Becky a call.
