Skagway City Tour Excursion Reviews
This was by all means much better than riding the train to the summit. The tour guide gave us a history tour of Skagway, took us to the old cemetery and gave us history on who was buried there, a short hike to a beautiful waterfall, and then on to the summit. Our guide rocked. She took all of our pictures and was extremely patient with the guests who didn't speak English and who kept running late.
Free and very informative of the town and the early gold rush.
Again did it on the cheap found a free tour of the city offered by our national parks. A ranger took us around and gave us quite a talk. It was great. Afterwards went to Red Onion for some refreshments.
We had walked into town and happen upon a tour in progress with a National Park Ranger. This young man did an excellent job walking us around town explaining it's history and it's Free!
The driver/guide was a little over the top but very entertaining and informative. We got to see a lot of Skagway and she knew a lot of it's history. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend the tour.
Having taken the White Pass trip previously, we opted for the expensive ($42pp) but interesting old-time trolley tour. Skagway is not over-filled with attractions, but this tour, nicely narrated, makes the best of them.
Skagway has so little to offer, I would not get off the ship to see the town. I understand that the train ride, whale watching and hiking are good if one is up to it physically.
Skagway Street Car City Tour was raised from the normal tour to a tour with so much fun and it was all because of "Charity" she says it's her real name lol.
She makes this tour because of her down to earth attitude and love of the area, a must do in Skagway.
This tour was on the 'yellow' bus. It was fun. A year round local lady was the guide. She took us up to the cemetery and gave a very good accounting of the 'Soapy' Smith murder. She also gave us some great info on what life was like the rest of the year when the cruise ships aren't coming in. Nice tour and I'm glad we took it.
This was a 3-in-1 tour. We took a ride up the Railway to Fraser, where we stamped our own passports! Lovely ride - sit on the left side of the train for better views and pics. You can hear the guide inside but not when you're outside on the train. Then it was a bus ride back down to Liarsville for a show and salmon bake. The food was better than we expected it to be. Walked around a recreation of a camp from the goldrush days. The show a bit hokey but fun and then we panned for some gold! Found my few flecks and then made my way to the gift shop which was very nicely stocked. Then back onto the bus to Skagway proper and the Red Onion Saloon. 20 minute tour with a glass of wine or madam's punch (lemondade). Then we chose to get off in town to do some shopping. This left at 740 am and lasted till about 2pm. Nice rounded tour.
