We did the Best of Skagway..If you are going to do the Touch of Class you may as well spend a few more $$ and do the one we did..We rode the bus up to the train then the train back to town..We were back on a bus to Liarsville where we had an excellent Salmon Bake and explored Liarsville..Panned for 2 flakes of gold then back on the bus to the Red Onion Tour where we were met by a tour guide and a glass of wine or beer..The Red Onion was the least favorite thing we did on the whole cruise only because I was tired..
I do believe you can walk into town and book the train on your own with out going through the cruise ship..
This year we will be renting a van and driving to Carcross or where ever we decide to go..
"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things
that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines.
Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." ~ Mark Twain
