After reading about a rude pilot in addition to the rude receptionist, we decided to pass. Her answers to our questions were either "yup" or "nope." My last question was if she knew of any companies that would fly to glacier bay and she said "no idea." I don't fill many of these in, but I couldn't walk away from... More

Dear gstascausky, I am so sorry to hear about your experience with our staff member. In fact I am speechless and utterly disappointed. Excellent customer service is a cornerstone of our operation and has always been a trait we take pride in. Unfortunately you walked away from an opportunity to experience Alaska with us because of our first point of... More

The only drawback on this trip was an incredibly rude pilot. Now for the good part....all the rest! The flight time over the first 4 glaciers was about 30 minutes from take off to landing at the Lodge docks. Wow, wow, wow! The glacier is the front yard of the Lodge. The walking paths are through an old growth forest... More

Dear txmomofjandr, I would like to begin by apologizing on behalf of the entire Wings Airways/Taku Lodge family. Customer service is the foundation of all that we do, and in this case we let you down. We all work so hard because we love our business and the guests that choose us to show them the true Alaska. There is... More

We booked this floatplane trip months in advance, and were looking forward to it. We flew in one of five De Haviland Otters up to the glacier ice fields, followed by a "shore lunch" inside an older hunting lodge with a real history. Takeoff and landing were smooth as silk - much smoother than a commercial airliner, for those who... More

My only complaint would be that I didn't get to spend enough time there!!! I LOVED THIS EXCURSION! It was my first time flying on anything but large commercial planes, so I was a little apprehensive BUT I didn't let that stop me from booking us on this excursion. I took a Dramamine, pulled up my boots and went on... More

We took our first float plane last week from the dockside in Juneau, AK...it was a fantastic experience! The folks at Wings Airways were terrific. Pilots were very friendly and the planes comfortable. The plane holds 10 passengers...with each getting headsets to hear the music and narration as you fly over 5 Glaciers for a birds-eye view of the city... More

Our cruise ship stated it was a one hour flight but it was more like a half hour. It was beautiful we flew over 2 glaciers and got close enough to really get a great view. We stopped at Taku Lodge for lunch. I love and eat a lot of salmon but I have never eaten salmon like this. It... More

Our absolute favorite thing in Juneau was this 5 Glacier Float Plane Experience. The views of the mountains and glaciers from the air were breathtaking. We took so many photos, each one we cherish forever. The landings were smooth on the water and the people involved were delightful. Our family of 5 (Age 11-80) booked this excursion and it was...

My wife booked this as part of our Alaskan land and cruise tour, I could not have been more impressed. The landing and take off are better than any commercial airline you will ever experience. The lunch served was excellent- all home made! The view from the flight and the lodge are first rate. The only downside would be the... More

While we booked most our excursions ourselves, the Take Lodge Glacier Seaplane Discovery was one of the highlights of the trip, and at the suggestion of the tour operators, booked through the Disney Cruise Line Port Adventures offerings. The trip consisted of about a 30 minute flight to the lodge, about 90 minutes at the lodge for lunch and exploration,... More

I booked our float plane & lodge tour online (not through the cruise ship we were on). Everything was perfect. My husband was the co-pilot on the way to the lodge - he absolutely loved the views from there! It was a gorgeous day, so we were lucky. The plane ride was so smooth and the views are something I...
