Question about bus tour to Yukon from Skagway pier.


Recommended Posts

We are booked on a May Alaska cruise and Skagway is one of the port of call. While searching for things to do, found several 6~7 hr tour to Yukon by bus. One tour I found posted the time the tour stops at each sights. Most sights are 10 minute stop and a 75 minute stop for lunch. Is this typical for a 6 to 7 hr tour from Skagway pier?

That sounds normal.  I would recommend driving in to the Yukon instead of taking a bus, you can get a rental car for around $200.00 and then you control your schedule.  Here is video of some of the drive in.  https://youtu.be/zDKrBV6SUTA

We are going the first part of June and have scheduled a tour with Dyea Dave Tours to be picked up at the cruise terminal and taken up the highway with stops and lunch to Emerald Lake.  On the return they will drop us off in Fraser to board the White Pass and Yukon Train to go back down the mountain.  They will then pick us up at the train station in town and return us to either the cruise terminal or the shopping area as we choose.

on Dave's website  is a bus tour for about 3 hours. is there an option to take a bus back to cruise terminal? How much is a separate price for a rail road? Any discount for kids?

We've booked a 3 hour tour to the White Pass with Klondike Tours. Broadly speaking, it follows the railway route but the benefit to us over the train is that there's 8 stops (for photos, so presumably briefish).
