Step back in time with one of the sensational madams of the Red Onion Saloon during this historic walking tour of Skagway featuring ghosts and good-time girls.
Depart the pier for the transfer into Skagway, then on to the Red Onion Saloon. A lavishly-costumed and highly-entertaining madam will greet your arrival, then guide you through Skagway's streets and back alleys. Here, women of the evening once brushed shoulders with such notorious characters as Soapy Smith and Skookum Jim.
During your visit, you will hear stories about Klondike Kate, Oregon Mare, Pea Hull Annie and Diamond Lil, and learn about 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 this forgotten piece of Skagway's history.
Your tour will conclude with a visit to the world-famous Red Onion Saloon's restored Brothel Museum. Here, you will be invited to join in a champagne toast, and explore the halls and bedrooms of this infamous brothel. Along the way, you will see original relics and images of the ladies of the evening that worked there. And, if you are lucky, you might even catch a glimpse of the resident ghost, Lydia.
