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 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!

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!

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!

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!-

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.

Raymie was a wonderful guide; knowledgeable, intetesting, and fun to be with. We highly recommend her and her full day tour which is not available from our ship.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the nice review! I had a great day with you, your wife and son! Happy & safe travels.

Raymie is a terrific tour guide! She loves Alaska and it shows! She has a wonderful grasp of the history of the area, the terrain, the animals....all of it. Raymie is a great storyteller, as well as a guide. You will have an awesome day with her.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the wonderful review! I had such a special day with you and your husband. I hope you enjoyed the rest of your time time here in Alaska!
