Kerry WeirUnited States
Our family loved our day with Raymie. She had great stories to tell during the drive, and allowed us to customize our stops for two young kids. Because she's a local guide, she could share stories with us about life in Alaska that a seasonal guide wouldn't know. It was one of those days we'll remember.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Kerry! I'm glad to hear you and the family enjoyed your day! It's families like you that keep me loving my job!

We could not have more pleased with every aspect of this tour. Raymie is a gem! Her van is very clean, spacious, and comfortable . She provides binoculars to see wildlife and as an added treat she brings out a giant telescope so you can get an up close and personal view of the wildlife that her eagle eyes find. We saw bears and mountain goats on this particular day. I feel like Raymie showed us every breathtaking spot from Skagway to Carcross. We also stopped at a lovely lunch spot in Carcross
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for this wonderful feedback! I'm so glad you enjoyed the excursion. We were so lucky to see some wildlife! Safe and happy travels!

Raymie was a fantastic guide! We really enjoyed our day with her... it was the highlight of our entire trip! She was very knowledgeable, flexible, and fun to be around! We would highly recommend this tour to anyone. It is especially great for families traveling with kids. She is really able to adjust the day to make it great for everyone. We would give her and her tour 10 stars if that was an option!

We so enjoyed this long beautiful journey with the generous guide who saw our needs before we did. She especially paid attention to our 12 year old grand-daughter. Such a winning personality and so much knowledge!! Wish she could be our guide every time!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Janie for the nice review! I had a wonderful day with you, your husband and your amazing granddaughter!! Come see me again!

Raymie was an incredible tour guide. We learned so much about the Yukon and other areas. Her attention to detail was great! I would highly recommend her!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the wonderful review!
Missy PageUnited States
Raymie was awesome! She made our day enjoyable and took time with our group. My mother, who is 83, needed a slower pace; Raymie tailored the tour to what we needed. She made the day about us! She was very knowledgable too, so we got to learn a great deal about the area. She even performed a monologue of poetry about the area as she drove. She also filtered water for us to drink from a waterfall! This was by far the best excursion we took on our trip! Fully recommend this tour, it won't disappoint!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the amazing review Missy! So happy to hear this was a highlight of your trip!! Tell everyone hello from Joe and I!!
Cheri FolckemerUnited States
This was our second tour with Raymie and if we ever are lucky enough to return to Skagway, we will book with her again. She is extremely knowledgeable not only about the area but also about the wildlife.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Cheri! I hope I do get to see you, your husband and your mom again!!!! You guys are the kindest!!!
David AvilaUnited States
Raymie was great. She haves us a thorough tour of the Yukon. We were extremely pleased with her.
Raymie is the best guide I've had for an interesting private tour. The day was our day and she made it happen. Was willing to take us to Caribou Crossing, as well as touring Carcross, The desert, and all the signs. Especially enjoyed the games and treasures for the young children, and the gold panning addition could not have been better! Very accommodating tour guide so it really was "our day" and a super way of a group seeing the sites with the benefit of being a small tour. Really great day!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for taking the time to write this great review! I do agree that starting a little earlier would have been better and I'll keep that in mind if I get another request for caribou crossing! I had a great time with you and your wonderful family! If we make it to the island I'll message you!
Cynthia WhitmanUnited States
We had a great day with Raymie! She took us on a beautiful trip, always looking for the "off the beaten track" things. We didn't feel like tourists. Her vehicle was super clean, and she was very knowledgeable about the area. We highly recommend Raymie!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Big smile! I'm so glad you enjoyed the day! Thank you for the positive review!
Patricia MeesterUnited States
Raymie was fantastic. She made a point to engage everyone in our group. She had a scavenger hunt for the little one, with prizes ready. She'd thought of everything, from binoculars for our use to fresh filtered water from the glacier waterfall. She didn't just help us find wildlife, she knew their local hangout and found us a bear for great photos. She was so knowledgeable, and you could tell she loves the town of Skagway, the Yukon, the wildlife and tour guiding!! If we ever go back, we'd see her again!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I'm so thrilled we had such a great day! Thank you for taking the time to write this wonderful review! I hope to see you again!-
Marc A.United States
Raymie did a great job of showing us the beauty of Alaska and the Yukon. She is friendly, helpful, and very knowledgeable about the area. Our group included parents, young adults, and kids. Everyone had a great time. Her tour was a definite highlight of our trip.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I had a great day with you and your family as well! Thank you for writing a review!-
Brian McCombsUnited States
Unbelievable! My kids (ages 15,17,19,22) said it was the highlight of our Alaskan experience. Raymie met the 6 of us on time in a 14-person touring van. We drove from Skagway into the Yukon seeing wonderful views and hearing great stories. Raymie got water from a glacier falls and filtered it, showed us sights that made our jaw dropped, and entertained us with her stories & dialogue throughout the almost 8 hr excursion. Best excursion we have ever had. (She has binoculars and activities for all ages)
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Brian! I'm so happy to hear you and your family enjoyed the tour! I have such a wonderful day with all of you! Send my best to your lovely wife and kids!
This was one of the most amazing tours we have ever been on. Not only was the scenery breathtaking but our guide Raymie was brilliant and extremely knowledgable. We thought 7 hours might be a little long but I must say we were never bored and loved every minute of it. We saw spectacular scenery on the way to the Yukon from waterfalls, reflection lakes, heard great stories about the history of the gold rush in the yukon and encountered wild life, many bear sightings. Thank you again for a memorable day.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I'm so glad you enjoyed the trip! It's amazing how quick 7 hours goes by! We were very fortunate with our bear sightings! A beautiful day.
We would give this tour 5 stars as, in our opinion, it is exactly what we as cruise passengers were looking for....a small group tour with an engaging local guide who gave us a great flavour for the area.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Greg, Thank you for taking the time to write this great review! I really enjoyed meeting you and your wife! Maybe I'll see you volunteering for the Iditarod someday �� They are always looking for good veterinarians.
