For all the 10 in our group, this had been the first helicopter ride and we were shaking with excitement. I booked with them independently and they gave us a group discount too! Temsco gave picked us up from our cruise ship and we rode through Juneau to their base. For most of this time, it was raining, but they... More

I contracted Wally to fly me and my wife to the glacier as our time in Alaska came to an end. Well worth the money and what a great pilot...and free shirts.

We truly loved our helicopter ride from Juneau to the dog camp on the Mendenhall Glacier. The tour took 1 ½ hours, with about 15-20 minutes flying each way and 45-55 minutes at the dog camp. We were able to take a quick (20 min?) sled ride and talked tot he trainers about the Iditarod and the dogs. They provide... More

Hereby I would like to especially thanks staffs at Temsco helicopter tour in Skagway. I dropped my camcorder on the glacier, their staff there spent time looking for it, found it, delivered it to my cruise and called me to pick it up. Thanks to caring and kind people like them, I recovered not only $600 worth of equipment, but... More

Most of my 4 rating is because how can you not like a helicopter ride over to and landing on the Mendenhall Glacier? My husband and I have been on several helicopter tours so do have something to compare with. I did not appreciate that although we had a landing they did not change people seats to give others a...

This is a very expensive activity. If you are in Alaska and want to splurge on 1 activity this is the one. We did the helicopter ride to Mendenhall Glacier and did the dog sledding. We were on this incredible glacier on a clear blue and sunny day. The kids played on the snow. We rode on a sled pulled... More

Be warned! It's extremely cold and windy on the glacier so dress accordingly. The information we received said to dress in layers, but it should have said dress for extremely cold weather. Wear a hat, gloves, and all weather coat. Pull your hair back into a ponytail if you have long hair, it will help when you put on your... More

This company is the real deal. From the beginning we were met at the tram by our wonderful driver Angel. She gave us a bunch of recommendations as to stores and things to check out after the tour. I loved having a true local experience with her. when we got to the temsco base, we were safety prepped and had... More

Having traveled in my fair share of helicopters this was a ripoff with four passengers in the back seat.With four people wearing heavy jackets it is claustrophobic and difficult to see out through the curved windows.I could not take any decent photos. Landing on glacier in the rain did not help. The pilot was not too helpful. BAD experience and... More

We have just returned to the UK after cruising the Inside Passage from Vancouver to Juneau and back. A friend living on Vancouver Island recommended the trip up to the Mendenhall Glacier as something special ... And he was certainly not overstating things. The whole experience will stay with us for ever and was truly magical. After donning the studded... More
