“Excellent guide, wonderful sites, reasonable price”
Reviewed June 17, 2013

We had a wonderful trip with our guide, Brook. This was much better than the train ride as we were able to get off the bus at many locations to get some pictures and take bathroom breaks. We were able to stop along the road to photograph and watch a bear eat, something you couldn't do on the train. This trip also takes you into the Yukon farther than the train goes. Brook, our guide, was full of interesting information and helped everyone take pictures. I highly recommend this tour over the train.

“Great tour, good timing, good price”
Reviewed June 16, 2013

I did a full day 6-hour tour. Our ship left earlier than others docked the same day and Frontier had a special earlier bus just for our ship. There were 12 people on our tour and we were seated comfortably with just 1-2 extra seats to spare. Our guide told great stories and managed time beautifully. We made it back to the dock about 20min. before all aboard. There had been construction and she knew exactly where it would be and about much of it was unavoidable. She gave our bus the option of seeing Emerald lake or another destination as we could not make both due to traffic. So glad we chose Emerald Lake. The color is unreal. The bus was comfortable, there was AC when needed and music for the drive back to Skagway. There were 4 of us and I considered renting a car; so glad I did not. This is a stress free entertaining way to see all the sights.

“Mike was awesome!!!”
Reviewed June 15, 2013

The bus tour is a much better value than the train ride. I'm sure the train is a great experience but we wanted to not only see more but be able to stop and take some photos. Every spot was an easy "postcard" shot! We saw bald eagles and a black bear along the way! This was probably my favorite excursion in all of the port stops. The best part of this tour was Mike...yes, even better than the black bear! :) He was knowledgeable, patient and above all, hilarious!!!

“Skip the train. Take this tour bus.”
Reviewed June 15, 2013

We decided to do a bus tour with Frontier Excursions instead of the White Pass train and are very happy we did. It cost half as much, we went further than the train and we got to stop frequently to see the incredible vistas and several black bears along the way. Everyone on this tour loved it while many I spoke to who did the train were disappointed. Mike, our tour guide, was incredibly knowledgable and funny. Overall it was one of the best parts of our Alaska vacation.

“Beautiful Tour with a Great Tour Guide”
Reviewed June 7, 2013

We added this tour at the last minute, and we're really glad we did. This was one of our favorite parts of our Alaska trip. The scenery was beyond amazing, and we got to see so many beautiful areas that we couldn't have otherwise. Also got to see our only bear on the trip!

The tour guide, Tyler, was fun and knowledgable. He made the drive enjoyable and gave us plenty of time to get some great pics!
