He asked us to use a phone which was located on a street pole to call when we were ready to be picked up. The Tram is a great idea for an exertion as well, a bit of money, however you see quite a bit.
We didin't do quite that route but we did find a local tour company that gave us an 1/2 day tour clear into the Yukon with several stops. Of course this was many years ago but I am sure there are several such companies around. It was $30 per person compared to $90 for the ever popular Train excursion and we are sure ours was more enjoyable. Of course that is just our feeling. Skagway was our favorite port.
