Wonderful guide and great tour. The lunch was excellent--lovely inn.
Another most wonderful tour. My wife and I previously visited Skagway and took a tour so we expected this to be similar. This tour took us not only through Skagway but up to Whitehorse Pass, via a small coach. What made this trip superior to the train which goes to the same place is that the coach stops and we are allowed to get out and take pictures from the side of the road. This tour allowed us to enter into the Yukon of Canada and then visit a wonderful little cemetery that gave us a feeling of what it was like it the olden days. My wife and I would whole heartedly recommend this tour... Our driver was not a local but a young man who was well versed in the area. This tour also provided us with a lunch at the Skagway Inn after our tour and we were most happy with the food there.
There was no a tour of Skagway the city. Would like to of heard more about the city.
This was one of the best things on the trip. I am not much of a plant person but I thoroughly enjoyed the tour through the gardens and the glass blowing was one of the best I have ever seen. Worth every penny we spent.
Josh was a wonderful tour guide. He was very knowledgeable about the garden. The glass blowing demonstration was fascinating as well
There was some confusion when we got to the tour operator's office in Skagway at about 10.30. The first assistant told us we were too late as our tour had left at 08.30. Our booking was for 11.30 so we asked for clarification. The second assistant told us everything was OK as there was another tour at 13.45 and that we should just go to lunch and come back at about 13.30. We had delayed our breakfast because we knew that lunch was after the tour so we were not happy with his solution. The shop manager was called over and he said everything was fine but we should be ready to leave at about 11.00 and he showed us where to meet the bus driver. We joined the bus at 11.10 and after a 30 minute pickup tour around Skagway we found out we were on the wrong tour. Not a problem, the bus driver said he would deliver us back to the shop. A few minutes later he told us we had been upgraded to the White Pass Summit and Yukon Tour and we would be leaving shortly. At this point we kept quiet and went along for the ride. The Yukon add on was a much longer drive into British Columbia so we missed our lunch appointment at 13.30 as we did not get back into Skagway until about 15.30. However, the restaurant honoured the booking and we enjoyed a late and lonely lunch at 16.00
On balance it was quite a good day out but the organisation was a bit rough around the edges.
