Excellent excursion. Tyler (T-Bone) was our tour guide for the day and he was the best. He was extremely knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor. We saw tons of wildlife and took amazing photos. Was one of our favorite excursions

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.

This was a great excursion. Our guide, Heidi, was friendly, knowledgeable and just great overall! The views of the mountains and lakes were spectacular. Lunch was delicious and we even saw a bear on the way back! Heidi was great to get the bus in position for us to have the maximum viewing of the bear. The price was very reasonable for what we saw.

This was about the best day tour we have done! We were met and welcomed at the pier after leaving the ship. The bus held about twenty passengers and our guide Candice, was absolutely delightful. Well informed, an excellent driver, and she was obviously also enjoying the perfect weather and friendly atmosphere on the bus. We were fortunate to see two lots of bears and the scenery was breathtaking. Candice stopped at all the view points and was careful to ensure that we avoided any other tourist buses! She would select the best time and best viewpoints all along the way. Our main stop at Caribou Crossing was fun and a tasty barbecue lunch was included. We saw the Husky dogs pulling their wheeled sleds as part of their summer training program and we met a couple of Husky puppies. A very worthwhile trip..

Wonderful scenery with multiple stops for taking great photos. Patrick, our guide, was both onformative and amusing. Lunch at Carcross with opportunities to pat puppies and an excellent museum. Some also took a ride on a cart pulled by dogs. Icong on the cake was an encounter from our bus with a bear who wanted to walk down the road! Patrick turned around and took us back for a better look. Fabulous day out.

Brooke was our guide for the day and she was amazing! This tour was wonderful! We seen a bear climbing a tree, a porcupine, eagles, Brooke always tried to let us get photos of everything we wanted. The scenery was beautiful, the drive was relaxing and informative and apparently you get to see more on this tour than the train ride and it's cheaper, plus the train can't stop for photo opportunities and doesn't venture out as far as the bus can. I highly recommend!

This tour was great! We were a group of 16 people in a minibus. Our guide Jessica did a great job. She could tell so many interesting things in a funny way. We did this tour in May and saw a lot of snow. The lunch was good and we had a great day! Thank you again :
