5 StarsThe best excursion on Alaska CruiseJune 11, 2018

Reviewer: Julie
Bryan with Southeast Tours was our tour guide for the 6 hour trip. He was fantastic. Superb knowledge of the area and superb stories. Warning: Purchased the tour through Shore Excursions, which was a link sent to us by Costco after purchasing our cruise through Costco's website. Tour cost was $120 per person. Would have only been $100/person if had bought directly through Southeast Tours for the exact same tour.

We loved, loved, loved our tour an tour guide Brian. He really enhanced the trip! We felt like relatives in town! Many beautiful sights! Pictures cannot capture the awesomeness! The bus windows are big and clean. We had enough room for comfort and personal space. So glad we booked this through Costco Shore Excursions. Would take this same exact tour again. Different sights each trip.

Reviewer: Roy Davis
We had a fabulous day with Bryan. He was very friendly, courteous, professional and extremely knowledgeable about the Skagway and Yukon area. The minibus he drove us around in was clean, well-maintained and very spacious. It allowed everyone in our group to have a window seat with a view of the incredible scenery. Bryan knew all of the best places to stop, including areas for wildlife viewing, and let us get out and spend as much time as we wanted. He always made us feel comfortable and never rushed us.

Reviewer: Donna Stramella
I can't imagine a better excursion to experience Skagway and the Yukon! Our guide, Kenton, a young substitute teacher and recent transplant to Alaska, was s history major. He kept us fully entertained the whole trip with fantastic stories--both real and imagined (folklore). He made the very best use of our time, stopping at the best overviews st the least crowded times. He even spotted a bear and managed to get in close enough for us to take very close photos from the bus! We visited a place for lunch that included museums, a dog sled training facility and a petting zoo.

Great trip. Was not sure from description if we were going by train or bus. Ended up being the bus, which was fine because we were able to see a lot more than those who took the train. Guide was very good. Was not impressed with the dog sled runs but enjoyed the pups & museum.

After talking to people that took the train ride I am most thankful that we took the Deluxe Yukon Sightseeing Tour. We got to go farther, see more and thanks to our bus driver, JOHN, get a lot of history of the local area. I highly recommend this trip and if you can get John as your driver he will make it a very enjoyable and memorable experience. The barbecue chicken lunch was great also.

On the way up and the return trip, the driver stopped whenever we sighted wildlife. He let us take pictures of the wildlife in their natural habitat. In the Yukon territory, we watched some sled dog races. Those dogs were sure hungry to get racing. We even got to see sled dog puppies.

This tour to the Yukon was simply amazing! Our guide Brian gave us a wonderful explanation of the area and the people and stopped many times for pictures.

The whole experience was amazing!!

Bryan Terrell was an amazing tour guide that truly added to a wonderful day of sightseeing. He was extremely knowledgeable and went out of his way for us. He drove my 88 year mother back to the ship rather than have her walk back from town. I would definitely go on one of his tours again. The scenery was also magical and one of the highlights of our cruise.

We absolutely loved this mini-bus tour. We went back and forth whether to choose the train ride or this one. We chose this one due to the fact that they would make frequent stops at different areas of interest while the train cannot do that. Brian our tour guide was great and very informative of the area. Going into the Yukon and seeing the untouched areas on top of mountain was breathtaking. We stopped for lunch in Carcross and got to play with the puppies and other animals after lunch. Highly recommend. You will not be disappointed!

Reviewer: hhkkg
Everything about this excursion was wonderful. Our tour guide was friendly, fantastic, and super knowledgeable. I can't seem to remember whether his name was Bill or Bob. He takes pride in what he does and loves guiding the tours; so much so that he drives up to Alaska from Arizona every summer so he and his wife can lead the Yukon sightseeing tours. The scenery was beautiful and even our stop at Caribou Crossing was great. The lunch meal served was so delicious! My only suggestion would be to increase the visit to Caribou Crossing to 2 hours because 1 hour (to include lunch) was not enough to time to visit the museum and see the outdoor attractions.

Despite the cloud and some rain, this was a very enjoyable excursion. Our guide, Bryan, was great company. His knowledge and sense of humour made the trip. Right from the start the tour of Skagway itself was interesting even before we climbed out of the port into the scenic interior. The mini-bus was comfortable and the group size small enough to be manageable with no long waits for stragglers. Both of us thought this trip was great value for money.

5 StarsLove this tour ! My 4th time !November 05, 2016

Reviewer: Vivian M Webb
I've been to Alaska 14 times, and have done several different tours (the ones that interest me) in Skagway. This is by far, my favorite, and I continue to repeat, even since my 1st time on this tour (been 4 times now). And I purchase through Shore Excursion Group (price hasn't gone up). Not even sure the cruise line offers this. The scenery is spectacular. Though similar, it still seems that I see something NEW or see it differently, each time. What you'll love even more, it's a mini-van tour, so not 50 folks getting on/off to view the sites when we stop. I love it ! And can't wait to do it again, next time I'm in Skagway ! Thank you again Skagway (Yukon) and Shore Excursion Group !

I really enjoyed the ride through the spectacular scenery of Skagway, British Columbia and Yukon. It was truly breathtaking. The experience was made better because of our great tour guide Bill Thomas. His energy kept us going through the whole ride. He is a great storyteller and provided all the facts in an entertaining manner. We made several stops for photos and he was more than happy to take pictures and continue telling us great stories. I really enjoyed our afternoon with Bill. I recommend this tour for those who love to look at great scenery and learn about the place they are visiting.

It was great! We saw bears on our adventure, the driver stopping each time so we could all take pictures. Grizzly bears and black bears and they were close to the bus just eating dandelions along the road, some were walking in a field and some where perched up in a tree. We also saw the sled dogs and were able to hold the 3 week old puppies. We had lunch along the way and that was tasty. A stop at Emerald Lake another beautiful photo opportunity. It was an all day trip, but it was a great trip. We enjoyed our port stop in Skagway. After the long day our driver dropped us off right at the ship, which was well appreciated. This was one of our most favorite excursions on our 7 day cruise.

Reviewer: BazfromOz
Glad we booked this tour as it would have been one of the first tours for 2013 and there was plenty of snow, so much so that the train was unable to leave Skagway due to landslides while we travelled without incident. Whilst lakes were frozen and there was much snow on the ground and mountains it was picture postcard viewing. The tour travels through pristine country and the only inhabitants appear to be the border crossing staff. The tour takes you approximately 100 km west of Skagway to Caribou Crossing Trading Post a collection of buildings constructed by the cruise lines to create a destination for its passengers. The museum contains the most amazing collection of animals. They are absolutely breathtaking. To see them up close and personal you realise just how massive some of these animals are. The taxidermist has done a wonderful job in restoring them to their former glory. It's a great shame that the indigenous people at Bennett Lake haven't quite embraced the tourists and taken full advantage of interacting with them. No doubt in time they will recognise the benefits that will flow to them when they do as we would have loved the opportunity to sample their culture and perhaps take home some keepsakes. The guides were excellent, both informative and entertaining. Being a small group tour we found it excellent.
