Our family (my wife and I and 4 kids aged 10 through 15) visited Skagway a few days ago. Wow! What an amazing visit. Sherry is the real deal. She was born in Nome, Alaska and moved to Skagway when she was a young girl. Sherry is even featured on a mural in downtown Skagway! Her family owns a beautiful retail store in Skagway and we were fortunate enough to meet her father after the tour. The tour itself could not have been better! We were SO comfortable in her custom van - unbelievable - leather seats, clean, she narrated the trip up to the Yukon territory and the microphone and speak were perfect - easy to hear, not too loud or quiet, etc. We made several stops along the way for photos (she is even a great photographer!). We saw mountain goats, black bear, eagles, etc. We also enjoyed a nice lunch in Carcross. Overall, it was a wonderful tour and we really felt like we got to know Skagway and the surrounding area and the history of the area. It is the opposite of a big bus full of tourists. We felt very nimble to do what we wanted to do, under Sherry's guidance. We all loved Sherry and miss her laugh already! Thank you, Sherry, for making our family vacation extra special!

First class tour with an authentic Alaskan native state how much my family
loved our day with Sherry! This is a must take tour and we are so happy we booked
directly with her and avoided the cruise line tours.

Sherry’s huge van allows you to spread out and the expansive windows give you the views you came for. Sherry knows every turn and vista and get you to the places first to avoid the crowds.

Do yourself a favor and get the authentic day tour—avoid being shoved into a bus and rushed through the natural beauty which you came to Alaska to see!

We had an amazing tour today with Sherry. We had booked the 4-hour Yukon tour. We arrived at Skagway by cruise and she was waiting for us at 7:30 am (an early start is recommended!) We were lucky enough to 1) had great sunny weather and 2) see a moose and two black bears. Sherry was a great guide and driver, very informative, warm, funny. We enjoyed the tour a lot. I highly recommend booking with Sherry if you will ever visit Skagway. The scenery is breathtaking and she is a great guide!

We came with three families of 14 people with kids ages from 3 to 13. Our kids loved Sherry's van! and they had a blast to hear Sherry's stories and asking her questions. We all had an amazing time with her personable welcome to her hometown! We saw some wild animals along the way and although it has been several months ago from this review, it has been a wonderful memory of her warm welcome and chit chats! Any new comers will not be disappointed!

First time visiting Alaska. Traveled with my parents who are both in they're 70's, my husband and teenage son. Difficult to find excursion that would keep my son interested and accommodate my parents. My dad is an avid outdoorsman and loves to pan for gold. We chose Dyea so we could walk the trail of the Gold prospectors. Beautiful sites. Salmon were spawning, that was really something to see. Our guide was a retired teacher ( I apologize for not remembering her name ). She was fantastic. Very informative. It was absolutely the best money we spent on the cruise. We can't wait to return to Alaska and will definitely use Skagway Tours again,,, Thank you for making our vacation a huge success.
