We had an excellent tour of Skagway with a young woman who knows the history of the area and can handle a vintage bus like no body's business. My husband is a retired city bus driver/trainer and he was impressed with her backing up skills without the need of assistance - she was outstanding. Read Less

You can do this on your own -- they just take you to a small sculpture garden with photos of Old Alaska, a museum and a melodrama about the history. No need to pay for the excursion. Small town.

We did not travel with passports so were unable to go on the train, (which turned out to be a blessing) We had originally thought we would just walk through the town and go to shops since we had not gotten many souvenirs yet. I am sure a real shopper could have spent the day this way, it was a really neat town... I was bored in about 30 minutes and the Harley store wasn't open yet We had coffee on a side street and people watched for a while and then we wandered into a store that advertised tours, moped rental, and had a snack counter with mini doughnuts (we would have done the moped rentals if it had not been raining and foggy). We booked a tour with Skagway Day Trips, gateway to adventure... phone 907-957-2551. We had a while before the tour started so we were able to hit the harley store and come back.. we sat and talked to the guys in the tour shop.. there is no better way to find out how people really live. It turned out the other group booked into our time called and said they were eating and would not be there for at least another hour. The company took my husband and I out at our scheduled time. We basically had a private tour that was catered to us and our interests. We went to the same location that the train does (it was foggy and we could not see the view, which is what I heard from those that did ride the train)but we took a walk and saw the forsaken valley where trees where no higher than my waist and over a 100 years old. We stopped at look outs, and drove to the flats to try to see bears we also got to see things that tourists never get to go to, because through conversation our guide thought we would be interested. It was an amazing and relaxed day. BEAWARE.. the shuttle to town here was $2 per person per trip or $5 for a day pass.... many of the tours will drop you back off at the ship or pick you up there. No one told us about this charge and the shuttle was free in Juneau. Read Less

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. Read Less
