Great scenic trip with many photographic stops at interesting places. Lasted about 4.5 hours. Van had about 12 people and a driver.

The shore excursion more than met our expectations. A good guide, who was not only personable, but knowledgeable. The excellent weather helped as regards scenery and unfortunately the very rare sighting of our four legged friends. That said, still a very good day and would rate as value for money.

We enjoyed this tour because we got to stop numerous times along the route to take pictures. The guide was very knowledgeable and interesting. He knew a lot about the area's history and three climate zones. He could answer any question you threw at him about the area.

Had very knowledgeable driver/tour guide, Tabitha. She is great, and a native Skagway resident for over 10 years. She gave us so much perspective and history and was fun. The drive is beautiful although it was pretty overcast most of the day. We still got to see everything that we were supposed to and got our pix at the Yukon border. I love Viator tours - they are significantly cheaper than buying through the cruise ship for the same thing!

5 Stars. Our driver / guide Mike was awesome. He was full of knowledge, super fun and made our 4 hours a blast. We stopped a number of times along the way to get signs of the Welcome to Alaska and Yukon signs, along with at the Canadian border, the suspension bridge, a waterfall, and a few other areas. We had a great day.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2016

I highly recommend this tour. It is so much better than the train tour which does not allow you to get on and off the train to take photos or view anything more than is visible from the train. Our driver Brooke was fabulous. Knowledgeable, professional, humorous and determined to provide us with the best experience possible. We had several bear sightings to make it even more special. We were able to stop and take photos at several vantage points along the way. The small bus was comfortable and easy to hop on and off. The rendezvous at the ship went smoothly and we had no issues whatsoever. Viator makes it simple to book a tour and our experiences have been excellent.
