Fantastic day with Tom. Very knowledgeable guide, and fun to be with. Saw beautiful sights, and even a bear. Highly recommend this private tour, so much better than commercial tours. Thanks Tom for a great day!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Regina, Thanks for your wonderful review! We were really lucky to see that bear, and I saw him again a couple days later! It's nice when the wildlife cooperates. Take care, and tell everyone hello from me. all the best, Tom P

Tom was very knowledgeable about the Skagway area and took us to some beautiful places - Emerald Lake being the most beautiful. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the time we spent with Tom and highly recommend him to future visitors.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Maggie and Howard, Thanks so very much for your nice review. We did have a fun day, didn't we? As I said, it's even nicer to make friends on a tour, which I did. Please come back, I believe you know where my house is. Please remember those passports :) all the best, Tom P

Tom was a fantastic tour guide for our day trip tour in Skagway! He did his best to make sure we saw some wildlife, which we did see a bear on the side of the road and some mountain goats. He was fully equipped with binoculars and a telescope. I would highly recommend him for your tour in Skagway!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Stacey, Thanks for the kind words! The "bear streak" is still pretty much intact, aside from one day last week, when it was just too hot for bears to want to come out of the woods. Goats are still leaping around, especially on Goat Mountain #2. I hope to see you back up this way again! Take care, and have a great summer! Thomas P

Five out of Five!This trip was absolutely fabulous. Highly recommend it to all going to Skagway. A guide can make or break a tour and Thomas certainly made our day truly memorable and certainly one of the highlights of the cruise-land excursions. I would recommend him to those looking for an exclusive and special tour of this beautiful country. Thank you very much, Thomas, it was a pleasure to have met you. Wishing you the best in your travels, your photography and your 'guiding'.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Rupa, Thanks so much for your very kind words. It really makes me happy when guests truly have a good time. You and Andy were a lot of fun, and I learned things from both of you. I hope to see you in 2020, in your neighborhood. Take care, and remember to come back someday. All the best, Tom P

Thomas was fantastic and extremely knowledgeable. He knew Skagaway and beyond in an historical perspective. He has very pleasant personality and all of us liked it very much. We enjoyed spending the day with him. We wish him all the best.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Dr. Amul! Thanks so much for your kind words. I really did enjoy myself with your and your friends, you were FUN, and that's always a giant plus for a tour guide. I hope your path finds you here again sometime. It's almost time for MY vacation, and it will be a good one. Take care.--Tom
Thomas is excellent guide!

He's very knowledgeable and friendly. We stopped to drink from a glacier cascade, took pictures at all the beautiful views, and got some special time with the dogs and the puppies. Tom's knowledge of the area, and more importantly the tourism, allowed us to get a local experience because we got to EVERYTHING BEFORE the dozens of tour buses rolled through. We got to spend quiet, personal time before things became a mad house. This was definitely the best way to get to see Skagway and the Yukon.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Greg, Thanks for your very kind words! And yes, I think a big part of my job is to get away from the crowd, as much as possible. I enjoyed our day together, and I hope you make it back soon. Tell your friends, it’s pretty nice up here. :)
