We did the flight over Mt. McKinley along with the glacier landing. This was definitely our favorite part of our trip to Alaska! It is really the only way to fully appreciate the beauty of this state. Do not hesitate to pay the extra amount to land on the glacier. It was incredible!! Our pilot was top-notch...such a smooth flight!

This was a most rewarding experience, of course, the weather was perfect. Our pilot was very knowledgeable and pointed out the sights we were seeing as well as informative on the Alaskan weather, the climate, the rights of the people on settling there and etc. A great flight, smooth on takeoff and landing. The plane performed wonderfully. I would recommend... More

This is an expensive splurge, especially if you are a family, but if you are going all the way to Alaska you cannot miss this; cut back on something else. We did the Grand Denali tour with glacier landing. For those with a fear of flying, I am afraid of flying on a jet (I take meds for this), let... More

Can't say enough about how amazing this experience was. No words can really describe how surreal it was flying to the North side of Denali and seeing the Wickersham Wall and landing on a glacier. Truly an amazing experience - especially for our 11 & 7 year olds who both got to be co-pilot! Our pilot, Mike (from FL) was... More

Would I have given Talkeetna Air Taxi a 5 star rating if I had not seen Mt. McKinley? Probably. We were able to book an impromptu flight on a beautiful sunny, blue sky day. Pilot was very professional and friendly. We hung out on the glacier and laughed when another pilot (from another airline) needed our help because his rudder... More

The schedule was a bit backed up after a few days of bad weather, but these folks handled things with professionalism, courtesy and good humor. We never felt out of the loop while waiting or rushed when the weather finally cleared. First-rate equipment and pilots (I'm a pilot, too, so I'm picky about such things). You can book a flight...

The glacier landing was the highlight of our Alaskan vacation. Clear, sunny skies made for an exceptional flight. Our pilot was very experienced and his commentary was so informative. We felt safe at all times. If you're skeptical about doing this just go for it! You will not regret it.

The experience was once in a lifetime for my son and me. It just so happen to be a clear and sunny day. We landed on the Ruth glacier and had spectacular views of Mount McKinley. The staff (Vikki, Trent, and Beverly) was very friendly and accommodating.

I booked the South face McKinley tour with glacier landing for my parents' first visit to Alaska. I'm an Alaska resident and have seen a good bit of the state, most of it from bush planes. That said, this was still a thrill and a half for my parents and for me, too! Many other reviewers have said the same,... More

This tour was prearranged for me through Alaska Adventure Tours (which also deserves 5 of 5!) The flight was amazing! The pilot spoke continually to ensure his passengers knew what we were seeing. He made certain both sides of the plane faced Denali and the other mountains nearby. He made a skillful glacier landing, proceeded to play photographer for his... More
