Skagway Street Car City Tour
Skagway, AKBack to Excursion Results
Experience this award-winning historical tour of Skagway.
Experience Skagway with Alaska’s original city historical tour for an informative fun-filled 90 minutes to All Points of Interest!
Skagway character Martin Itjen came North looking for Klondike gold in 1898, and became the town’s most celebrated storyteller. He gave Alaska’s first motorized sightseeing tour on his “Skagway Street Car” for U.S. President Warren G. Harding in 1923, and delighted visitors for decades.
Today, Martin’s tour lives on in Skagway. Aboard your yellow 1927 sightseeing bus, your costumed “conductor” passes on a century of history, behind-the-scenes tales, and stories of life in small town Alaska, just like Martin did himself.
Explore the waterfront and National Park Historic District, enjoy the panoramic views from the Scenic Overlook, and a visit to the Gold Rush Cemetery. Highlighting the history of this gold rush town and the pioneer families that built it, you will motor through the residential neighborhoods of Skagway, famous for its flower gardens, and past the early childhood home of Alaska’s most famous resident, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin. A stop is made in town for those who want to get off to shop or explore before the tour continues back to the ship.
There is truly “Nothing Like It in the World”. Don’t miss seeing All points of interest aboard the Skagway Street Car!
