Lavishly costumed and highly entertaining, your high-spirited madam from the Red Onion Saloon will greet you at your ship with a souvenir garter, then guide you on a two-hour walking tour through the back alleys and former red light districts of Skagway, where women of the evening brushed shoulders with notorious characters such as Soapy Smith and Frank Reid. You'll hear stories of Klondike Kate, Cad Wilson and Diamond Lil and will pass historic and haunted Gold Rush buildings as you learn of Skagway's rich 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 hallways and bedrooms of this celebrated brothel, observing original relics and images of the ladies who worked there. The tour ends at the saloon, and you'll have time to visit the gift shop and explore downtown Skagway on your own.
