Included is the Skagway City Overlook, where you can enjoy breathtaking views of the town, harbor and cruise ships. At the Klondike Gold Rush Cemetery, hear the tale of Frank Reid and "Soapy" Smith and the gunfight that changed the future of Skagway.
Leaving Skagway for the White Pass Summit area, you'll journey along the Klondike Highway which parallels the White Pass Railroad, a popular tourist attraction today. In between visiting historic points of interest, distant glacier views, thundering waterfalls and majestic mountain vistas, you can relive the Klondike Gold Rush with stories from your guide.
Continue traveling parallel to the White Pass Trail and White Pass Railroad, climbing 3,292-feet (1,003-meter) to the summit before descending into the upper portion of the daunting Tormented Valley. The Tormented Valley contains large areas with an almost lunar appearance, making this one of the most unique eco-systems in North America. Explore a forest-tundra ecotone with a stunted forest of 300-year old trees and alpine tundra.
The final leg will be through the Tormented Valley, with a stop at Summit Lake. As you survey the landscape of the White Pass Summit Area, admire unforgiving wilderness that inspired such classic authors as Jack London and Robert Service. Returning to Skagway, stop at the "Welcome to Alaska" sign, the most popular photo stop on this bus tour.Worry-free Shore Excursion:

Normally, we always book excursions through the cruise ship, but after reading so many excellent reviews, I decided to book on our own and Im so HAPPY we did. Our tour guide Tyler T-Bone was excellent and we could not have asked for a better guide. He was very informative, had a deep love for the area and also served as our personal photographer. It was definitely one of my dad and Is favorite excursions. Highly recommend this trip and tour guide, Tyler.

My friend and I were very pleased with our bus tour at Skagway. We got to stop at waterfalls to take pictures and stop at the Welcome to Alaska sign. We could see the train as it toured through the mountainside. For the price of 47.50 I believe we saw as much as our other friends who paid much more to ride the train and it didn't let them stop for pictures. Our female tour guide was very interesting but I can't remember her name. I would definitely recommend this tour.
