Private, Custom Tours You Drive Yourself

(Alaska Green Jeeps)

Exciting news for our Alaska Green Jeep customers!
We are proud to announce we are expanding our Alaskan jeep operations to include the big island of Hawaii this fall.Due to this new expansion outside of Alaska, and the fact that Chrysler has discontinued the color green for new 2018 Jeep Wranglers, we are formally changing our name from “Alaska Green Jeep Tours” to our new name “DIY Jeep Tours.”We feel strongly that the new “Do It Yourself” concept of the DIY name fits perfectly with our business motto of empowering our guest with the self guided tour concept.We want to emphasize to everyone we are still the same company, under the same management and ownership, with the same great service and quality that has been expressed so many times on TripAdvisor reviews.

Sincerely,
Heath Goebel
Owner

We also have a mile-by-mile guide that features all of the historic and scenic stops.! Located in southeast Alaska, Skagway offers the perfect vacation with world famous historic sites; spectacular scenery, and unique charm. We are the ‘Gateway to the Klondike’ and the Yukon Territory, home to some of the most spectacular scenery and wildlife you’ll find anywhere!

No more being pushed to leave when you want more photos, or having to wait when you’re ready to roll on. Stop and go at your leisure, visit the sights that interest you and skip those that don’t. You control the interior temperature, speaker volume, length of stops… even the amount of tour narration you receive! We’ll provide you with all the information you’ll need for a memorable day in both Skagway and the Yukon.

Weather can change quickly and drastically in Alaska. Please bring extra layers in case the temperature drops or the weather changes during your tour.

You are welcome to bring drinks or snacks in the Jeep.

Make sure all members of your group have a valid Passport that allows entrance to Canada and back into the United States. Skagway sits only 15 miles from the Canadian border so all tours do leave the United States and reenter through US Customs.
