This tour is amazing. It made my Alaska cruise complete. Thank you Elliot and all the dogs! This was truly worth the money. I would do it again if I were ever in Alaska again.

Our family did the dogsledding and helicopter tour in Skagway and it was our favourite excursion from our trip to Alaska. Very well organized, everyone was very friendly. A once in a lifetime experience! One thing to note is that we were not able to take any bags or extra camera equipment on the helicopter up, this included gopro accessories... More

I took the helicopter and dog sledding tour when my cruise ship, Celebrity Solstice, called on Skagway. The helicopter ride was a little short only about 25 minutes, but the dog sledding was awesome! The Alaska huskies were so friendly and well trained, the ride was about 1.5 miles and we had a chance to greet the puppy husky at... More

We tried the helicopter and dogsled tour in Skagway and wow, what an experience! On arrival, our party of 3 joined 2 others for a quick security briefing and the fitting of some warm attire. Shortly after, we were flying over the most amazing scenery... and it wasn't scary (only somewhat overwhelmed at moments). The pilot provided interesting information during... More

My husband and I were looking forward to this excursion as much as we were looking forward to our whole Alaskan cruise. We were nervous about a few things beforehand such as; the cancellation of the excursion because of weather and overall worth of the excursion based on the astronomical price. Our fears were put to rest when we arrived... More

My wife and I booked this was the excursion through NCL as part of our Alaska Cruise. We were taken out to Mendenhall Glacier by Temsco Helicopter. The Temsco staff outfitted with sledding boots gave us a very knowledgeable presentation of what we to see and how to be safe around a helicopter. Our pilot flew above the mountains and... More

My husband and I took this tour through TEMSCO. We were very pleased with the service offered. Every single person associated with this entire operation were top notch, from the reservations to arrival back in Juneau.
