Actual tour was August of 2014 -- on a Cruise w/Carnival -- hadn't booked anything in Skagway -- but weeks before we left -- caught up with these folks and they squeezed the 3 of us in for a "mini 2 hour" tour -- had a lot of fun....saw eagles and bear....great Family business to deal with!

We really enjoyed our time with the tour bus. They kindly informed us of many of the local historical sites, and unique factors, like there is only one road on the island, and 98% of the island is desolate!!!

Becky at Beyond Skagway tours is absolutely amazing! She made our wedding day as perfect as it could be! It was a dream come true and we will never forget how special her and Nicki, our photographer from paul@murrayadventures.com, made that day for us. They are forever in our hearts and we will definitely be back again to explore more... More

Becky, Kristen, and the whole team/family helped give me the wedding of my dreams. We had an intimate ceremony near Pullen Creek, followed by our reception on board the train through the Summit. I never imagined that I would have my reception on a train riding through gorgeous mountains. This was Becky's idea and it was amazing. Her and her... More

I booked this trip because I wanted to do more than ride the train and boy did I ever get my money's worth. We had 5 adults and 1 child ( they provided a car seat) in our party.

Our tour guide, Tom, was fantastic!

Jeff, so happy to read your review about your tour, going Beyond Skagway! Glad to hear you enjoyed the puppies, the desert, Emerald Lake and the bridge! I believe you must have taken a 7 hour tour with us, in order to have had time for all those activities. Great choices for how to spend your time with us! Kristen... More

Easy to work with them to set up our day. Kristen was our guide and she was delightful. I'm sure she has done the tour a million times, but her excitement and enthusiasm made it seem like it was the first time. She was also very in tune to what our group could handle (we were with my older parents)... More

I just don't know where to start. I feel like I'm bragging on family!!!! We booked a private tour "beyond Skagway, into the Yukon" with Becky because I had been with her on my previous trip to the area.

I had the pleasure of working with Becky over the course of this summer on a few weddings she handled for visiting brides. Finding people with her kind of attention to detail and professional rapport with other vendors in and around Skagway is a real asset.
