An amazing trip through Alaska and into the Yukon. Our guide Tim was very friendly and knowledgeable. He went beyond the standard spots to try and find more wildlife for us to see. The scenery was unbelievable; from the spectacular mountains to Emerald Lake. The ride on the narrow gage train down the mountain was breath taking. I would highly recommend this tour, our Alaska trip would not have been complete without it.
Great job Tim!
Brian

Hi Brian! Thank you for writing, to let us know how "amazing" your day with Tim was. It's always fun to read about people's day, while on their Beyond Skagway Tour. We also think the our backyard has some pretty spectacular scenery. Send your friends!

Our family booked a private tour with Becky and her team for our time in Skagway while on our recent Disney Wonder Alaska Cruise. This tour was not booked through the Disney Cruise line vacations website, rather we booked it privately.

Our family included myself, my wife, and our two daughters 18 and 20, all of us very interested in the environment and learning.

Our guide and professional driver Candace was absolutely amazing, one of the best guides we have ever had the pleasure of working with and we have had many.

Even though we departed the boat late due to a mix up on our part, Candace was able to take us through the entire tour avoiding the crowds the entire way. There were 5 other cruise lines docked so this was very impressive.

Our tour was the custom 7 hour emerald lake tour with a visit to pet the puppies. We simply asked Candace to use her best judgement and take us where she thought was the best itinerary to go. It was amazing. We went off the beaten path to our own private beach, tasted real Alaska water right from a waterfall, walked through the tundra and visited a favourite spot of Candace’s. The puppies were a huge hit as well.

This was a real gem of a tour and a highlight of our trip to Alaska.

Huge props to Becky, Candace and the rest of the team at Beyond Skagway Tours. Thank you again Candace for the very special day. You are a very gifted tour guide and your passion for your job and Alaska is infectious. We will definitely be back and will look you up again next time.

Thank you so much for the very nice comments about your tour with Beyond Skagway Tours! This small tour company was built out of a passion to take people into the wilderness and off the beaten path. That takes a bit of extra time and energy, but it's our belief that it's worth it. I'm very pleased that you think so too. Good for Candace, going the extra mile to make your day "amazing". These comments come directly from me, Becky. I also believe that if you take the time to write about your day, I should take the time to answer!

Had a great time, our guide, Tim, was very knowledgeable and really tried hard to get us to see more wildlife. The scenery was fantastic, the mountains and Emerald lake belong in pictures. Really recommend this tour, our Alaska trip would not have been complete without it. Thanks Tim.

Jay from Beyond Skagway was our host; a resident of Skagway he was very informative regarding living in Skagway and very knowledgeable in his descriptions of landmarks and wildlife as we made our way from Skagway to Carcross. One special highlight is when a black bear came into view and Jay pulled the van to the side of the road so everyone could get pictures. The entire staff from Beyond Skagway were very helpful; starting with the reservation process, arranging our lunch picnic including a growler of beer from Skagway Brewing and during actual tour; very accommodating, 10 stars in my estimation. If you have the opportunity to tour with them, you will not be disappointed!!

What an amazing opportunity to travel through Alaska and up into the Yukon! Beyond Skagway Tours was an amazing company to work with. They were very flexible and very easy to reach. We were given the opportunity to choose what tour we would like to take with our family of 8 and we chose the 7 hour tour. However, we were told that at any time we could change routes and go do something completely different! Renee was our tour guide and we couldn't have asked for a person to fit in with our family better! Renee shared the beauty of the area with us and was willing to stop at every vista to allow us an opportunity to see the mountains, lakes, waterfalls, bear and everything in between! She shared insightful information, answered all of our questions and even had activities to keep my 14 and 10-year-olds involved and amused. Our lunch in Carcross was absolutely delicious and we were happy to have Renee join our family meal together! We decided to add a stop to see the Iditarod dogs before we headed back and that extended our tour on the fly by 1 hour. The kids loved getting to see the puppies! After our return in Skagway, we had enough time to walk the streets of the town and shop in the stores before our return to our cruise ship. That evening, we were contacted by Beyond Skagway Tours to make sure we enjoyed our trip and to get permission to charge us for the extra hour we requested before our credit card was charged. I thought that was very nice for them to check with us before they charged our credit card. The company was very nice to work with! All 8 of my family members were thrilled with this experience and we recommend it to everyone!

Wow! Thank you so much for such a sweet and complete 5* review. It's so much fun to read about people's day, going into the Yukon. While we can't take credit for the amazing wilderness scenery, we do try our best to create custom tours that fit your interests. It sounds like your tour fit your group perfectly. Renee is a sweetheart. We also take credit that we hired her! TeeHee!
