The tour lasted 1 1/2 hours and covered more in that time than I could have in an entire afternoon. The driver (guide) was very knowledgeable and was dressed in early 1900 costume. The tour took us around the entire town (including the historic cemetery) and the driver it seemed had an unending stream of history and minutia to keep us interested and laughing.

Booked from Norwegian Cruise Line, we had a 1020 tour. The lady, Rame, who was driving was very knowledgeable about the town and the characters that lived there. We also got to see the graveyard and look down from the heights to see all the town.

Excellent tour guides and a great tour in a windy and pretty cold small town. Only available through cruise tours, so check on this if you are an independent like me! Take a later tour, NOT 8:30. It's a short walk from ship to town, so explore first and then take the 10:30 or 12:30 tour when you are ready to ride. Lots of shopping here, but wait for Ketchikan..it's wonderful!

We had an 8:30am Skagway Yellow Taxi tour. Our driver and tour director was Charity. Charity was an actress, dressed up in old fashioned clothes who gave the running commentary of the tour. Charity was very likeable and friendly, but her “schtick” didn’t sit well with us. We didn’t find her humor funny. We wished the 90 minutes was filled with more facts and less jokes. We first viewed the other docks on the bay for 10 minutes, which was a waste of time. Then RV Parks – who cares? Main Street was fine. Overlook was okay. You could see the very cute town below with their international airport. Her house – again, who cares? It was one of the nicer homes in town, so she must get good tips. She did tell us of their winter activities which was perfect because that is the kind of stuff you can’t get in books. But 90 minutes is way too long. The Gold Rush Cemetery had hokey speeches on the crooks buried there. Way too much drama for our taste. The vehicle was clean and well maintained. You couldn’t take a photo of any of the buildings because she drove to fast past them. Take a walking tour instead; the town isn’t that big.

We booked when on Holland American cruise waiting for our criuse tour to begin. We got off the ship at 8am and met our guide. Cute gal can not remember her name and she was dressed up. Loved riding in those old touring cars. She was great with the town and history and we went out to the old cemetery and heard stories of folks living in the town. Road up to a high boat and could over look the town and our cruise ship. She then droppped is off in town near the rail station so we could wait for our train to Whitehorse, Yukon.
