Tour Overview

Your tour begins as you board your motorcoach for a narrated tour of Skagway en route to Jewell Gardens, a tranquil oasis of organic flowers and plants.

Upon your arrival, your guide will offer a private orientation to this spectacular northern show garden and the hot shop, where you'll learn the ancient art of working with molten glass. You'll create the ultimate Alaska memento, a handmade ornament to float in your garden pond, or hang in a window or Christmas tree. In the spirit of the Gold Rush, you'll have the opportunity to incorporate 24K gold for dazzling effect. Your work of art can be shipped anywhere in the world, compliments of Jewell Gardens.

Next, you'll embark on a guided glass gallery tour of hand-blown works, followed by tea service, lunch or light dinner (depending on time of day) made with fresh ingredients from the garden, and a glass of beer or wine. After a bite to eat, you're free to wander the gardens, gallery and shop.

Your tour concludes with a scenic drive back to the pier. With Skagway behind you, you leave with a myriad of unforgettable memories of a lifetime.

This excursion was chosen the last four seasons by Princess passengers for overall tour quality and outstanding customer service and awarded Shore Excursion of the Season and Tour Guide of the Season in Skagway.
