Raymie is the best tour guide you could have in Skagway. She is extremely knowledgeable, flexible and caring. We were a group of 10, with 5 adults and 5 children. She planned interesting activities for the kids and shared her vast knowledge of the area with everyone. She took us to a wonderful suspension bridge and an awesome dog sledding camp. We could not have been more pleased and highly recommend her as a tour guide.

Everyone in our group of 10 (including the 5 kids) had nothing but great things to say about Raymie and our tour. She was knowledgeable, easy going, patient with our large group, great with kids, and gave us an unforgettable experience touring beautiful Skagway. I would highly recommend her and this tour!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I apologize. I was feeling a bit overwealmed this summer with the wedding and short on communication. Good feedback! I will improve!! On a happy note, I’m married!

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 felt like our guide was more concerned about her relationship to the venues visited than about her paying customers. The rest of the tour was fine.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ann, I'm truly sorry to hear that you felt that you were not my main concern. My guests happiness is always my main objective. When you said you did not pay for the venue you visited, of course I sent you back in to pay. I do not want to ruin my relationships with fellow business owners, that is part of running an honest business. It's too bad that you see my ethics as a negative, rather than a positive.

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!

When Raymie put those 4 puppies in the arms of the four children, their hearts melted as did the parents. She kept everyone active and engaged including games and prizes for the kids. The waterfall purifier container was just spot on.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Puppies are pure love. I'm so glad you enjoyed your day!

This was an amazing tour with Raymie! She was informative, friendly, energetic and fun to spend time with! We were lucky enough to see 6 bears during our tour!!! We also stopped to build inukshuks for the kids and visited the huskie training camp, as well as the suspension bridge. All were worthwhile stops. Raymie loves Alaska and we could clearly see that in the way she runs her tour and the stories she shares. It was inspiring! I would love to come back to Alaska and tour with Raymie again.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for this fantastic review Anita!! It really was a great day!

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!!

Our day in Skagway with Raymie was one of the highlights of our entire Alaska trip! She was waiting for us at the end of the pier and then we were off to her clean and comfortable van/bus. Raymie has an excellent personality, while being detailed and knowledgeable about all things Skagway and Alaska. If we are ever back to Alaska or friends go on a trip, I will recommend her every time! A tour is only as good as the guide, and with Raymie not only was the tour great - so was she!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Susan!! I had such a wonderful day with you as well! Hope to see in Alaska again someday!!

Fabulous tour. We have been on several cruises and many tours and excursions. This was the BEST!! Rayme was awesome, very personable and has a vast knowledge of the wildlife, land and customs of Alaska and the Yukon. We stopped at the suspension bridge, panned for gold (tourist style) and went to the musher's camp for a puppy pet. The highlight of the tour was the absolutely magical scenery and Raymie's expertise regarding the area. Highly recommend and will book with her again when we are in Skagway

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Judy! It makes my day knowing that you truly enjoyed the tour. I hope to see you again on your next trip to Skagway! Safe and happy travels!

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!

Excellent tour in Skagway! Raymie went above and beyond our expectations to make our private tour for our group of 16 the greatest experience. Her knowledge and suggestions were amazing. Gold panning, dog sled camp, and much more...all surrounded by beautiful Alaskan and Canadian views made our time in Skagway the best day of the trip!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I'm so happy to hear you enjoyed our day! Your family was so great to spend the day with! Thank you for taking the time to write this great review! Hope the kids are all cherishing their gold!

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!-

If there were more starts we would give them to Raymie and her assistant Peggy. They seemed to embody the true spirit of Alaska. We couldn't have wished for more in our trip. We learned, laughed and marveled at everything Alaska.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Margaret! We truly do love where we live and are passionate about it! So glad you enjoyed the tour!

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.

My husband and I went on a spectacular tour of Skagway into the Yukon with Raymie! Raymie picked us up at the cruise pier and pointed out all the sights of the city of Skagway. We then ventured up the highway into the Yukon, crossing into Canada. I love to take photos and Raymie made stops all along the tour for me to do so (the scenery is spectacular)! She took us to a "Musher Camp" which was definitely a highlight of our tour! I was able to photograph a Black Bear! We highly recommend this tour

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Polly, Thank you for taking the time to write this great review! How fortunate we were to have great weather and see a beautiful black bear! So glad you enjoyed the trip!

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.
