We struggled to find a representative for Dyea Daves tours at the dock. We had to ask many people as there was no one with a Top Hat or any sign. Felt better when we met another couple also looking, so we waited together. This meeting spot could and should be specified more accurately. Once all on board, they took... More

The Skagway Dyea Dave tour was absolutely the highlight of our trip. We were most fortunate to have Dyea Dave as our tour guide for the day. He promised us rain, sun, mountains, wildlife, great snacks and a desert! He delivered all of that and more. He is an absolute gem - funny, personable and knowledgeable about the area. There...

The Dyea Dave tour from Skagway to the Emerald Lake in the Yukon was excellent. Renee was our guide/driver and she demonstrated excellent knowledge of the area, even finding some berries for us to sample! It was very foggy and drizzly on the way back but Renee handled the conditions terrifically. We opted for this bus tour rather than the... More

We thoroughly enjoyed the day in the van with Renee our tour guide to Emerald Lake. It was a rainy day but we did all of the stops that were promised to us. It was a bumpy start since the last group picked up didn't like the back seats and so therefore we got a late start dealing with this.... More

In July this year I took a 6-night cruise from Seward, Alaska, to Vancouver with Cosmos/Holland- America. Our first port of call – and first opportunity for an Alaskan shore excursion - was Haines, a lovely town with a beautiful mountain backdrop and a real sense of history. At first I thought docking at Haines would limit my ability to... More

Small bus tour up the road from Skagway into British Columbia and the Yukon Territories. Lots of stops for pictures and to view the large boulder on the railroad track. A bit foggy early in the day, but it cleared as we went higher and we had great views of lakes, fall colors and snow-topped mountains. Rene did a great... More

This was a good tour. The weather kept it from being great. (The first snow of the season had fallen by the time we returned from emerald lake ). Not their problem. Renee did her best under the circumstances. Stopping to show us various plants and animals, allowing us to sample different berries. As to the Australians who misrepresented the... More

I had booked this tour 12 months before arriving to Skagway in September 2016. Upon arrival we were placed in a 20? person bus and because they collected us last we were placed on a bench seat at the very rear of the bus sharing with 4 people and having no side window to view from. The seats were very... More

Dave's tour is by far the best value out there. We didn't have the big bus, just a mini bus so a better experience. We elected to take the morning train first to Fraser and they picked us up from there for the rest of the trip up to Emerald Lake in the Yukon then back to Skagway. You could... More
