Step back in time with one of the sensational madams of the Red Onion Saloon. Lavishly costumed and highly entertaining, she will guide you through the streets and back alleys of Skagway, where women of the evening brushed shoulders with notorious characters such as Soapy Smith and Skookum Jim. Stories of Klondike Kate, Cad Wilson, Pea Hull Annie and Diamond Lil depict the adventurous, lusty, and sometimes tragic lives of thousands of women who stampeded north. Your journey will take you past historic 1898 buildings and notorious gold rush districts as you explore the often forgotten part of Skagway history. Your experience culminates with a stop at the world famous Red Onion Saloon's restored Brothel Museum. Here, join in a champagne toast and explore the halls and bedrooms of this infamous brothel, observing original relics and images of the "ladies of the evening" who worked there. And, if you are lucky, you might even catch a glimpse of the resident ghost, Lydia.

Review 1 for Ghosts & Good Time Girls Walking Tour
Its not a bad tour, its just way overrated here. If this was the 'highlight' of your cruise, boy, you missed a heck of a lot!
Now this is a relatively inexpensive tour, but its hard to say you get your money's worth. Basicallly you walk around (a lot of walking) while a girl in a costume tells you history of the town, and throws in a couple silly references to ghosts. Then you end up at an old brothel setup like a mini museum.
I wish I had taken the train trip instead!

Retying of the shoestrings. Nice!
This excursion (walking tour and history presentation of Skagway by a "Good Time Girl") was the highlight of my recent cruise to Alaska. Our guide ("Lacy") provided an exceptional presentation, and had the group laughing much of the time. When I go back to Alaska on another cruise, I will definately sign up for this excursion again. Lacy: 5 out of 5. Overall 4.5 out of 5.

Review 3 for Ghosts & Good Time Girls Walking Tour
This is a walking tour that takes you back in time to Skagway in the beginning. It is definately for adults only. You are led around town by one of the good time girls of old. She is very knowledgable in how things were done and ghost tales from the past. It is a very easy pace through town as the "madam" tells her tales. She is very flirtatious and it was alot of fun to see her interact with people, not only on her tour but as she takes you through town.
