One of the best and most memorable tours my wife and I have taken. Janean our driver and tour guide is informative, humorous and knowledgable. We were fortunate to have a small group and had the opportunity to make numerous stops for photos. The sights are truly breath taking. Janean made sure we had a wonderful experience. We'll worth the price. Will be taking this tour again.

I'm so sorry I forgot the name of our wonderful guide - perhaps Janene? Anyway she was funny and the perfect guide. we had an adequate number of stops for pictures, we enjoyed Emerald lake and Car Cross. The trip was comfortable with great scenery, saw a hug black bear and a brown bear - and an interesting stop for lunch.
We had a very unpleasant family on our tour, and the guide immediately sensed that this would not go well, so she arranged for the difficult family to travel on a private van; She saved us all from a disastrous trip!

We had a fantastic tour with Dyea Dave. He met us at our cruise ship with a small van ( high roof walk-in), Our group of three and another group of three spread out in the van (window each). We took the tour through British Columbia and on to Carcross Yukon. Along the way we made many photo stops and had great views. Of course the weather was just perfect.
We stopped twice for bears right on the side of the road. The little bakery in Carcross where we stopped (you can go any where you please) had great food at a reasonable price.
When we got back to Skagway he asked if we wanted to go back to the ship, get off in town or see a bit more. We opted to see more so spent another hour about town sightseeing.
Would I recommend Dyea Dave...... you betcha.
Well worth the price at half the ship price and a much better trip.

Dyea Dave was fabulous. We toured with him during our day in port. There were six (including Dave) of us on the tour. Dave is a true local and it shows. He gives you a tour that is unbeatable and truly goes out of his to show you the historical and the beautiful parts of Alaska. The bakery in Carcross is a jewel and provided a nice place to stop and grab a bite. Dave fulfilled each of our requests including stopping at a Mushing Dog farm, seeing mountain goats, stopping for a bear and touring the cemetary. Dave went way out of the way and knew how to get the best photos and avoid the tourist crowds. BUT, the absolutely most amazing part was the end of the tour. Dave showed us his house and shared his rare car with us. He then proceeded to give each of us who desired, a ride back to the ship in this amazing vehicle. I think it was the highlight of my husbands trip! We all had a wonderful day and will always remember how he filled the day with fun, humor, history and adventure. Dave, you were fabulous! Thank you

We booked with Dave months prior to our trip after reading many options and reviews. We were definitely not disappointed! His knowledge of the history and hi humor made the trip even more fun. Of course, the beauty and all the bears didn't hurt anything. We, also, immensely enjoyed the little bakery in Carcross. This is an absolute must take tour!! The bigger tours cannot offer the stops nor the friendly atmosphere of this smaller bus tour! My sister and I will never forget this day!!
