We did the Red Onion Saloon in the morning. They serve you breakfast (scrambled eggs, sausage and a homemade biscuit) and provide you with your choice of Bloody Marys, Mimosas, or Irish Coffees. The drinks were very good, the food not so much - except for the biscuit. The entertainers (dressed as brothel girls) then gave a tour of the brothel that was both fun and informative. It's a must see in Skagway. If you don't go as part of tour, you will wait in long lines when the saloon opens to the general public at 10 a.m. Read Less

This tour was so much fun and very informative about the town as well as the ladies of the night. The tour was given by a delightful and engaging woman dressed in clothing of the period, and though she toyed with the group with her words, she was also well versed in the history of the area. We learned many interesting things. We had a champagne toast at the end at the Red Onion Saloon Read Less

We sat in a parking lot for a while, (Princess was not very organied) then were called to a bus that was nearly full and driven to Carcross in the Yukon, the bus windoiws fogged up, so there wasn't much scenery to see, when we arrived in Carcross, there was no time to see the town, we had to get right on the train.The train ride was really good, it had less to do with Princess and more to do with how well the train was run. The busride was bad, foggy windows, and nobody telling us what to expect (the people who booked the tour were all freaking out when they announced on the train that they would be collecting tickets (a small thing, but the people running this tour should have told us this, and that the train would be stopping for lunch).
