Such beautiful scenery! The weather was absolutely perfect. Our driver was awesome. He even made a U-turn so that we could go back to take photos from the bus of a mama bear and her 2 cubs who were munching on berries on the side of the road. However, the included lunch was not good at all. It consisted of flavorless potato salad, 3 types of sandwiches, and dried up banana bread. By the time we got there, they had run out of most of the food. It was sparsely replenished. Ugh. Read Less

Sail Date: September 2018
Best part of our trip was the "bus/van" tour in Skagway. Mountain views, a comfy bus ride and we drove into Canada to see the Yukon. The train was expensive and crowded, so very happy we went with the bus tour.

SKAGWAY: This was a very small port. We took the Yukon Scenic Trail tour that was about 5.5 - 6 hours long. It started at 8:00 and we got back to the ship around 2:00. Our guide was name Doug who was very knowledgeable. He was also a photographer that helped take pictures for you at the YUKON and ALASKA signs. It truly helped speed up the process and that everyone got a chance to get a picture in front those signs. We made various stops to take pictures. We stopped for lunch which consisted of Spinach cream and Beef vegetable soups, wraps and sandwiches, rhubarb and banana cream pie as well as cole slaw. The Lunch was amazingly delicious. You need to bring your passport as you do cross the Canadian border. We drove up 3500 feet above sea level mountains and just learned so much about the life of the Gold Rush and history of Alaska. We even got to see a bear. If you love scenery, you'll love this tour! Read Less

Skagway bus / train ride – This was a fantastic tour. We booked this tour through BeyondSkagway.com and had a private bus tour to Emerald Lake with stops along the way. This tour was about $250 per person. The morning bus ride out was riddled with fog. The driver, Candace, told us that for July the weather was very typical. My mother was concerned about safety and driving in the fog, but there was so little traffic and Candace really knew the road well. I asked her to pick out her favorite stops because we were not familiar with the various stops. We ended stopping at a glacier waterfall and having a drink of fresh glacier melt water. It was very cold and very tasty. We stopped several times for photos at various lakes and mountains, but the best stop was at the puppies. For $25 per vehicle, we all got out to hold and pet puppies that are being trained to be dog-sled dogs. What a blast! Once we reached Emerald Lake, we stopped for photos. This lake is gorgeous with a deep emerald green color due to diatoms and runoff from the mountains. This is well worth the trip. Several of my group members asked why a 65 mile (each way) trip would take 7 hours. With all the stops and lunch along the way, it ended up taking what it did. It was a perfect trip and worth the 7 hours. This was with BeyondSkagwayTours.com, excellent outfit! Read Less

Yukon Adventure by Bus with Chilkoot Charter and Tours Easy pick up right in front of the ship. Our tour guide (I apologize I can’t remember her name) provided us with a lot of information on Skagway and stories of the “Klondike Gold Rush” on our way to White Pass Summit. We stopped multiple times for photo ops of waterfalls, majestic mountains, glaciers, and historic sites. Our guide was a professional at knowing how to quickly take all of our photos in front of the “Welcome to Alaska” and “Welcome to the Yukon” signs. We stopped at the train station to pick up passengers and headed into the Yukon on the Klondike Highway. We stopped for lunch at Caribou Crossing Trading Post. The highlight of this stop was seeing the dog mushing camp and puppies. We also saw a bear while we were here (very exciting). We had one more stop for shopping and then we headed back to Skagway; most of us took a little nap. We had another quick stop for a bear sighting on the side of the road. Once back in Skagway we did a little shopping and had a “spruce tip beer” at Skagway Brewing Company. It was surprisingly tasty! We bought a Ulu knife here and it was the cheapest price compared to all other stops. So if you want one, I would suggest you buy it in Skagway. It is a great souvenir I am reminded of our trip each time I use it. Read Less

My husband and I did the Alaskan cruise 7 years ago and chose the White Pass Railway while in Skagway. It was a beautiful train ride, but we decided to do something different this time so we picked the bus tour of Yukon with Frontier Excursions. It was awesome! Instead of only getting a glimpse of the wonderful sights while on the train, we were able to stop and enjoy them on this tour. Our driver HEIDI was AMAZING. She was knowledgeable with a great sense of humor. She stopped on the side of the road for us to enjoy a mama bear with her cubs and entertained us during the drive with wonderful stories. The White Pass takes you to the Canadian border, this tour takes you much further in. I highly recommend this tour! My only pet peeve is how many tourist don't tip their tour guide, especially after 7 hours of hard work. Read Less
