The Temsco helicopter ride to the glacier hike was the highlight of our trip to Alaska for our family. Our pilot, Scott, was fantastic and told us a lot about what we were seeing and answered all of our questions. He is a great pilot! The views are amazing and you should plan to do this while in Alaska. It... More

I have ridden in helicopters before, and some experiences were not so great. But this one - wow! All six of us had comfortable seats with good views and a headset so we could ask questions of the pilot. The pilot was very professional, started out by giving us his credentials, then we detoured from a direct route on the... More

We booked this tour through our cruise. Our first time in a helicopter and we had a great time. We had booked this trip for the day before, but due to bad weather, were unable to go. They quickly rescheduled us for the next day. My husband and son were really looking forward to the helicopter ride and were not... More

During a recent cruise my family (me, my wife and son) took the Heli-Hour tour offered by Temsco out of Skagway. It was the most expensive excursion we did, but the one we all agreed was well worth the cost. We were extremely lucky with the weather, as it was mostly sunny the entire day and slightly warmer than usual.... More

Went here with a cruise ship and were supposed to go dog sledding on the glacier, however the weather was too bad to go up on the summit. Temsco offered us a walk on a lower located glacier and we all went on this trip. It was amazing and we had about an hour to walk on top of the... More

I did the TEMSCO Helicopter tour to Mendenhall Glacier (Juneau) a day before I took the trip to the Mead Glacier (Skagway) and thought for sure there was NO way that the Skagway tour could compare because the Juneau tour was AWESOME! Well TEMSCO did it again! I was super impressed with everyone involved with the TEMSCO Helicopter tour. The... More

Breathtaking views combined with the excitement of being in a helicopter and also being informational. I highly recommend this excursion.

The Nowegian Pearl managed to rebook with Temsco the following day in Skagway........White Pass Railway in the morning this in the afternoon..............what a day.!!!... More

On May 30, we had a thrill of taking a helicopter up to Denver Glacier to meet the staff and dog teams for dog sledding. It was the best excursion we took during our week-long cruise. Better than whale watching. The ride to the glacier was worth the money alone, but then we met the dogs. They were delightful! Well-cared... More
