By booking independently from the cruise ship, you stand to save a substantial amount of money. So, why is it that so many people choose to book their tours in Skagway through the cruise lines?
As year-round Skagway residents with over a decade in the local tour sales business, we've met a number of people that see our prices while in port and realize that they paid hundreds of dollars more than necessary. Invariably, these cruise passengers voice the reasons that they booked their Skagway tours on the ship, and what follows is a brief overview.
"They told me that if I book my tours in Skagway independently that I could miss my ship's departure."
This is the most common reason we hear for why people book in Skagway tours on the ship, and it's undoubtedly a legitimate concern. At M&M Tours, you will never miss your ship, because every purchase comes with a GUARANTEE that we will pay to fly you to your next port if your tour results in missing your ship.
So, in our 15 years as the leading tour broker in Skagway, how many times have we paid to fly someone to their next port? NOT ONCE!
The threat of missing your cruise ship is fabricated so that you spend your money on the ship. When you think about it, how long would any Skagway tour vendors stay in business if their customers were regularly missing their ship departure? The answer is obvious.
"I wanted to guarantee my seat on the tour of my choice."
It is definitely a good idea to book your tour ahead of time. Skagway tours can book up solid, especially on busy days when multiple cruise ships are in port.
However, not only can you book your tours in Skagway ahead of time with us, you will also save a substantial amount of money. The truth is that tours are cancelled for a variety of reasons, the most common of which is bad weather. Inclement weather affects every tour operator, regardless of whether you book on the ship or with a local Skagway vendor, so why not book local and save money?
When you book your tours with one of our agents in Skagway, they will confirm your departure time and send you all pertinent information by email. We take a credit card number to hold your space, but we don't charge you until you are safely in Skagway. In this way, we eliminate the hassle of trying to negotiate a refund because a tour is cancelled.
Best of all, if your tour is cancelled you can choose one of our other tours from our long list of Skagway options.
