Patrick is a great guide, very knowledgeable about history of Skagway and White Pass/Yukon area. Excellent driving and sense of humor. We have done multiple stops to take great pictures, so we can bring home tons of memories. The tour worth every penny we paid! We're so glad we choose Viator for this tour.
This was an EXCELLENT tour. Our tour guide, Tyler, was lively, extremely knowledgeable, personable and funny.
The 1 reason I chose this tour over the White Pass railroad were the number of reviews that lamented the fact that you couldnt get out at all.
We had a climate-controlled minibus with only 21 people. Compare that with the NCL Pearl excursions that were considerably more expensive and left in mega-buses that were 100-200 people deep each.
The drive out to the Yukon was absolutely gorgeous. You pass through Alaska stopping to take photos at the Welcome to Alaska sign, British Columbia and the Yukon also taking photos at the sign. We were able to stop and get out to take photos at various locations. We saw mountain goat as well as an eagle extremely close to the road and raven.
We went everywhere as described. In addition, though I didnt take the sled dog ride as it was on a wheeled vehicle instead of a sled due to the lack of snow I was able to pet the puppies. In addition, we stopped and drank some glacier run off water from Bridal falls only 3 of us dared and stopped at the actual Carcross town as we had extra time and got our passports stamped.
I would advise that at Caribou Crossing where the dog sled adventure and lunch is that you go to the Taxidermy museum and exit through the rear door. There you can pet and for only 1 a bag feed a pure black stallion, mini-horses, donkey, alpaca and/or goats.
This was an awesome tour! Our guide, Aaron, was extremely knowledable of the history, friendly and made it a fun adventure. We stopped several times and saw beautiful sites. Lunch was delicious,also! I highly recommend this tour. You won’t be sorry!
My original plan is to join the half trip of white summit pass train and half bus trip. But then that trip is full so we turned to this mini bus trip. It is so cool the driver will drop us off at any lovely and special scenery for photos. We also have a chance to do sled dog rides! At last, I even think this excursion is far better than my original planned one!!
This is the second time that I have done this tour, and I would do it another time. The things that you get to see are wonderful and the tour guide (Brooke??) was amazing in pointing out wildlife and the other sights. She was extremely safe, and made sure that everybody got to enjoy the sights in safety. The was cautious of the impact we had on the wildlife and made it an amazing experience for everybody. Our 10 year old daughter also went with us and she had a bit of an upset stomach at one point. The tour guide made a special stop so that she could use the restroom and it was very much appreciated. Great tour - give it a try!!
Great bus tour of Yukon with multiple stops. Incredibly scenic. Dog Sled/Iditarod training was worth the visit! Bus driver was a great tour guide.
Our driver Patrick met us in the parking lot right after the cruise ship pier, and he quickly seated everyone in our relatively small minibus (I think we had about 15 people).He drove through Skagway, pointing out some highlights along the way (to be honest, not many in the city), and then we were on our way north. The tour description is exactly correct: lots of scenic photo stops along the Klondike highway route, gorgeous green Emerald Lake, Tutshi, Tagish and Bennett Lakes, unique Carcross desert, and so on. We had a lovely day - sunny and no rain. Unfortunately, we did not see much wildlife, but the varied landscapes, in both Alaska and the Yukon region of Canada, more than made up for this. Patrick pointed out highlights along the way, and he kept us amused and entertained. One nice personal touch that he provided: At several scenic spots (for example, the Welcome to Alaska sign), Patrick took photographs of each couple or group of travelers.So why take the bus and not the train? The minibus stopped many times along the route, both on the way up to Carcross and on the way down,, for photo opportunities. When we got back to the cruise ship later that day, we spoke to those who had taken one or another train alternative (there seemed to be many possible train choices), and they were all envious of our trip. The train ride may be a bit more scenic (and historic), but we had many more chances than they did to get out see the countryside.
We absolutely loved this trip. Tyler (T-Bone) was our guide, and Nathan was his assist. We enjoyed every second. Tyler was a 10 star guide, and was fun, informative, and extremely accommodating to my 82 year old father, who is somewhat limited in his mobility. I am incredibly grateful both for that, and for the experience. So happy we took the bus route which allowed us to get off. The sled dog experience, which Tyler insisted my father take part in and helped him to do, was so enjoyable! Tyler, if you are reading this, thank you SO MUCH, and a gift package from NH will be on the way. Thank you to Frontier!!
This is such a great tour. Tyler (T-bone) was our tour guide and was amazing. He was very knowledgable about the area (7 of us ages 18-50 asking questions) AND was he courteous, kind and helpful to all the passengers. We saw the true beauty of the Yukon highway and learned about the area. We had multiple stops on our way to Carcross and then had a great BBQ lunch when we got ther. To add to the trip, the museum, petting zoo and husky puppies were a delight! We LOVED this excursion!
A really good day led by our wonderful guide who was relaxed and informative. We had numerous photo stops, and the highlight was seeing a bear and her 2 cubs. Lunch was fine, but the beautiful scenery was amazing
Our guide John was excellent and super knowledgeable of Skagway, the Yukon and Canada. We had a tour bus with 17 on board that was comfortable and he spoke clearly and had a great personality. We stopped several times for photo opportunities and stopped for a cinnamon colored black bear eating berries on the side of the road. We also loved the dog cart experience and lunch! Great day, and would do this tour again!
A fascinating tour of downtown Skagway and then a road trip to Carcross. Luckily it was a warm and sunny day and the views were memorable. Our driver and guide Candice was entertaing and knowledgeable. Lunch included and the interaction with sled dog pups fun. Even saw a Bear with two cubs. Recommend this tour highly.
This is one of the best excursions we took on our Princess Alaskan cruise. I can't say enough about everything we saw and how wonderful it all was. A big part of this experience was our tour guide T-Bone. He was so knowledge about the area. But, it was also his personality and how he made sure everyone had a great time. He also became everyones personal photographer, making sure everyone had a picture together with the wonderfu scenery. Thank you T-Bone for a wonderful time.
My family did the full day Yukon tour and Frontier did not disappoint! Our guide Candice was phenomenal! She was so knowledgeable and just a joy to be around. She took her time and stopped numerous times for photo opportunities. We also had the pleasure of meeting JayJay, another Frontier guide. She was parked and we were asking how to get back to the ship and she took us and dropped us off! You guys are doing it right! Thank you!
Agree with other reviews. Great driver/guide with pleasant personality and knows the area well. Plenty of stops for photos. Lunch adequate.
Beautiful scenery, knowledgeable tour guide! Loved the smaller bus size to make it easier to get on and off without a lot of wasted time waiting on people. This was much better than the White Pass Railway excursion we took last time. Museum at Caribou Crossing was awesome. It was very hot the day we were there, so puppies were sleeping and dog sledding wasn't available. Chicken lunch was ok. Overall the trip was awesome with lots of time to take photos!
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.
Was a very good trip. Mike knew his stuff historically as well as local humor. The whole outing was well worth it. Would do it again. Denny
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.
