The Yukon Sightseeing tour was excellent. Our driver/tour guide did an awesome job telling the history of the area as well as her own personal camping and fishing experiences in the area
Reviewer: Mary Pat Bischoff
This was such a magnificent tour, one of my favorites! Being on the small bus, and making various stops along the way made the trip more personal. It was also a small group (less than 20), so there was plenty of time at each stop to admire the gorgeous scenery, walk around and take pictures. Our driver, Dori Madsen, was fantastic. She knows so much about the area, and even introduced us to some of her friends along the way. What a great day we had, I highly recommend this over the train, when you are in Skagway.

The weather was beautiful! We got to the check-in early enough to be upgraded to a longer tour into the Yukon. Our driver Maria was very chatty and provided a lot of information about the area and the history. We made a few stops along the way for pictures and rest stops but we had to get to Carcross in time for a BBQ lunch! On the way back, she showed us a desert and beach created after the glaciers receeded. A spontaneous turn into a campground found us between two bear cubs, not 20 feet from the van on either side. SO cool!! Maria even drove us to our ship because of the short timespan before it departed. It was the highlight of our cruise!

Very knowledgeable driver. Stopped frequently. Black bear sightings X 2, great picture opportunities. We were close enough for great shots with regular point and shoot cameras. The mountain goats needed a good zoom lens for decent pictures but the scenery was great. Lots of fun.

Liz , our tour guide was fantastic! We would definitely ask for her if we ever return
Reviewer: Stephen Riordan
Our fantastic tour guide was Brian. He knew everything there is to know about the area and he is the reason we would go back to Alaska. What a wonderful person, a wonderful tour guide and s wonderful place to visit!
Reviewer: Steve Riordan
We took this tour with Brian; who was exceptional, We got the best tour ever because we were the only two people on the tour being the first cruise ship in spring
Reviewer: Paula Flatley

Reviewer: Maria Corazon Alviar
The tour staff were not visible at the waiting area. The tour guide was awesome and made sure we had a good time.
Brian was a great guide. In addition to beautiful scenery, learned a lot about life in Skagway and the Yukon. We ended up taking the longer tour and we loved it. Traveled in comfortable coach where we could stop and see the scenery. Got to play with sled dogs. Would highly recommend this tour.
Reviewer: James Elliott
We did not see any wildlife but the area was beautiful, the driver/guide was very good and knowledgeable about the area. Enjoyed the town of Skagway.
Reviewer: Alice R Shanaver
We were totally pleased with our tour from Skagway into the Yukon. Our driver was knowledgeable and had excellent taste in deciding which adventures to share during the trip. He is new to AK and told many inside stories of understanding the local conditions and people. The tour company was generous. Plenty of time was allowed for for photo opps. 10-11/10 in favor of this experience!
Reviewer: Gail and John Grueneberg
We were upgraded to a 6 hour tour with lunch at the last minute because of overbooking on our original tour. our tour guide, Bryan, was excellent, interesting and went out of his way to include extra sights and stops not on the route. Very humorous also. We loved it!
Reviewer: Lynne Parish
I was with my family of five. My son and daughter in law and two children age 2 and 6 yrs old. Our guide John was amazing and great with the grandchildren. Highly recommend this tour to everyone. He delivered this tour top class and offered to take our pictures with our camera's. Classic, professional guide.
Reviewer: Shahram Salamian
Great tour guide with excellent info on Alaska history and Yukon. Amazing landscape.
A small group with an excellent driver/guide. It was informative and we saw a few interesting landmarks. Wildlife was limited to sighting of one bear momentarily ahead of the bus. Despite viewing some decent scenery, this was a rather long bus ride to view very few significant scenic areas. In other words, while the "Yukon" label had grabbed our interest, the tour itself did not provide a great deal of excitement. Had we not toured in Alaska previously, I would have booked a different available tour.
Reviewer: PAULA M MILLS
Trying to decide between the train ride or bus? Choose the bus!! We stopped to see waterfalls and wildlife and went further into the Yukon than by train. Our driver was great-- knowledgable, accommodating and friendly. Great tour!!
Reviewer: Elfreda Murray
We had a fantastic time. Our tour guide/driver was very knowledgeable and accommodating. He stopped often to point out scenery or give us the history of what we were looking at. He even volunteered to take pictures with our cameras or phones.
Reviewer: James Wolfe
The day was overcast and chilly, but visibility was very good. We saw the beautiful countryside with numerous mountain goats and Dahl sheep. As we drove along one of the riders said she saw a bear in the bushes beside the road. We went back and watched a grizzly happily grazing. She even reared up on her hind legs several times. Watched about 5 min until she moved into thicker brush. This alone made the trip worthwhile.
Reviewer: Beth Stafford
We loved the smaller group size of your tours ... much more personal! We had a great driver who was very experienced, could provide great information on the area and made lots of stops for photos! We really enjoyed having the opportunity to get out into ""REAL ALASKA"" and travel all the way to the Yukon!
Reviewer: Sue Robertson
Enjoyed sightseeing! It was beautiful!
Interesting Guide. We did see a Bear up close from the bus which was exciting.
Reviewer: yukon jack
There were only five of us on the van tour including the driver. Superb wilderness scenery all through Alaska, B.C., and into Yukon. Tour guide was very informative about the history of this vast area and its natural surroundings. The driver will stop in any place along the highway, as long as its safe. We saw our first wild caribou on this tour! Recommend this tour as you are seeing most of the same things as you would on the train tour for less money.
Reviewer: The Happy Campers!
Shortly after departing, our van had mechanical problems forcing us to return to base. Owner provided us with a bigger van. Our guide, Brian, was great from start to finish. He was very interesting, knowledgeable and provided many amusing anecdotes & historical facts! The scenery was breathtaking..one scene more beautiful than the last. The museum we stopped at for lunch provided a good meal. After lunch we toured the grounds. The wildlife museum was exceptional!!! We also enjoyed interacting with the Husky puppies, watching the adult dogs being trained & seeing the alpacas & feeding the goats! Brian was also kind enough to take our pictures at every stop! We very much appreciated him doing so as we have picture perfect memories of this fantastic outing!
the driver was a great historian. enjoyed listening to the history of the area. was hoping to see eagles and maybe a bear lumber about but alas they were elsewhere. would still go again.
weather was a drizzly day so the tour guide did a great job in keeping us active
Reviewer: Gift of Grace
waiting area could be larger
Reviewer: Georgia Peach
Our guide really knew his history and the area we visited. He kept us entertained the entire 3 hours. I would really encourage others to take this tour - ESPECIALLY with our guide.
Reviewer: Fran,bird lady
We were blessed with gorgeous weather. Our tour guide was a very enthusiastic storyteller about the gold rush era. Our group was small and he was very accomodating to our needs. It was a great experience.
Very Knowledgeable Guide. Very Funny.
Reviewer: Jim & Michelle
Our guide was wonderful! Very informative. Great scenery. Loved the suspension bridge---totally worth the money! If you are super adventurous then this is not the tour for you...If you want great photo ops, wonderful tour guide, small group instead of the crowds of the Train then I highly recommend this tour. Our guide even offered to drop us off back at our ship instead of in town (not that Skagway is a long walk) but I thought that was very nice!
Reviewer: Mr &Mrs Murdoch
Alissa was our guide and she was very well informed. She was a good driver. The scenery beautiful. She had a book in the van that was an additional help to see and understand what took place in this country. We were glad we took this tour with her.
Reviewer: Shamilla the tree hugger
Excellent Service My husband and I were the only two on this tour so we actually got to do more stops to just take in the awesome beauty. Tour guide has excellent knowledge of local area - both the natural landscapes and cultural/historical facts.
The guide was very experienced and she was telling us stories about the region.
