We really enjoyed our tour thru Skagway with Kate. She is so knowledgeable and informative. And "NO" we did not think she talks too much. LOL It was such a treat to see so much beauty & wildlife and without your guides we probably would not have spotted many of them. Thank you.

Recommend it and there is a nice benefit for a discount for families! The business is expanding and the guide, Becky Mull, was extremely informative!

Our private tour had 20 people divided into two comfortable small buses. Kate was the tour guide on my bus and she did a wonderful job providing us with information on our tour which started after our train ride to Frasier and ended with a return to Skagway.

Tour Operator was excellent. We were part of a group of 30 friends who went with this company. The 3 vehicles used to transport us were very clean and comfortable. The drivers were very knowledgable in telling us about the various sights visited. Wildlife was pointed out to us as they were encountered. Highly recommend using this tour operator.

Our group of 6 had a great day with Becky. She was waiting for us when we got off our ship with a "Beyond Skagway" sign. Becky took us to the Alaska Sign for group photos, Tushi Lake where we saw sheep, Carcross Desert, Emerald Lake, as well as several other awesome stops. The sights of this tour were spectacular....

Emily! Thank you so much for your 5 star review. I'm so very glad that your group had a great time while on tour with me. Your tour, was the first time I've ever seen rams butting their heads. And it was so close too! More

We booked a private custom tour and had a fantastic time! Our guides Tom and Sam were wonderful. Tom knew the area very well and shared many local 'stories' and lots of history. He encouraged questions and answered every one we threw at him. We really enjoyed the smaller group and loved being able to ask for stops as needed... More

Hey! You got the Tom n Sam tour! That's a great combo. Sam's new to us this year and we already love him! Tom's been taking tours out on the Klondike Hwy. for 26 years. Now, that's a lot of knowledge, eh? Glad he could answer all of your questions and glad you had a great time! More

We booked a tour thru "BeyondSkagwaytours.com". Our driver/guide was Renee. She was very cheerful and had great knowledge of local culture and history. They took us by van away from Skagway up to the Yukon Territories and Emerald Lake. Some of our group stopped for a dog sled ride. We then were dropped off at the train station for a... More

So glad you enjoyed your day with Renee! During our 2017 spring guide training to Dawson, we all agreed that Renee remains cheerful though the thick and thin of it. We love that quality in our guides. Just as an add-on here: those were technically dog cart rides that you went on, as there's no snow for sleds in the... More

I can't say enough good things about this tour. Our guides took us to see so many sights. Kristen's knowledge of everything in the Yukon was extensive. They met us at the dock, put us on the train, met us at the end of the train, and took us on a grand tour. It snowed on us for quite a... More

Actual tour was August of 2014 -- on a Cruise w/Carnival -- hadn't booked anything in Skagway -- but weeks before we left -- caught up with these folks and they squeezed the 3 of us in for a "mini 2 hour" tour -- had a lot of fun....saw eagles and bear....great Family business to deal with!

We really enjoyed our time with the tour bus. They kindly informed us of many of the local historical sites, and unique factors, like there is only one road on the island, and 98% of the island is desolate!!!
