A highlight from my Alaskan Cruise was the stop in Skagway. This is one of the more expensive excursions to do, but boy is it worth it. You get to fly by Helicopter and land on a glacier. I will put this in: I DO NOT like to fly. I get super nervous, but my pilot was super careful and... More

Don't miss this exciting trip down the Fiord and landing on the glacier. This is a triple first class operation, with the same level of competency in the staff. This made the trip.

Every single thing about this was awesome and totally worth it, the ONLY thing that keeps this from a perfect score is the expectations they set when we checked in. We were with a group of 6 and were assured we would be together on the helicopter but we were split up. Had they told us up front that there... More

A highlight of the Skagway area. How many people in this would have walked on a glacier and drank freshly melted glacier water? Educational and a lifetime experience. We felt safe and in good hands during the entire tour.

If you are visiting Alaska- this excursion is an absolute must. We took the helicopter ride in conjunction with dog sledding. Wish we could have stayed longer at the dog camp.

This was a thrill and a half. First time on a helicopter. It was great. Our pilot was very good and knowledgable. The walk on the glacier was very cool and fun. Would recommend this excursion.

We travelled on the Disney Wonder with our son. This was the highlight of our trip. And the trip itself was amazing. The helicopter trip is breathtaking. The pilot so friendly and informative. Once at camp the trainers are wonderful and friendly too. Each family Is separated to have their own dog sled. So you are not sledding with strangers.... More

OK, the huge grin on my face as the helicopter starts to take off ... was matched only by the equally-broad grin on my son's face. What an experience. ... We took the combination helicopter/dogsledding trip and it was absolutely a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Helicopter. Glacier. Dogsledding. I will say that my wife was apprehensive about the helicopter part of the... More

This tour was the highlight of our cruise. We had a thrilling helicopter ride down the river and over the mountains. The flight over the mountains was awesome - the snow, glaciers and valleys. After a breathtaking flight , we landed at the dog camp. There are 204 dogs living on the glacier during the "summer.". After petting the dogs,... More
