Went as a shore excursion with Royal Caribbean cruise. Heather was great in the helicopter and Eric was great on the Glacier! I brought my 3 kids (ages 11-17) and they were very comfortable in the helicopter and safe at the Glacier. Be sure to dress warm with gloves and a hat! They supply the boots but it gets cold!

We took the helicopter and dog sledding tour which we arranged for ourselves instead of through the ship. Temsco is very professional and has everything organized and operating very efficiently. We were given a brief orientation before our trip and then sent on our way. The entire trip lasted approximately 2 hours. There was a 20 plus minute ride up... More

People told us that doing a helicopter ride would be a highlight of our trip...and it was. I had never been in a helicopter before, so I was a little nervous on the day of our ride. Especially when it turned out to be quite windy. I didn't think there was any way they would fly tourists in those conditions.... More

We had a great time! The pilots made us feel very safe and the views were gorgeous. The guides ("Outdoor Dave" and Benjamin) knew a lot about the area, were very kind and took great photos with us. We could have stayed out there all day. Drink the glacier water!

Our ship (Golden Princess) stopped in Skagway on June 15. Weather was brilliant so I decided to sign up for the tour. Exceeded my expectations. Every aspect was handled very professionally. From the orientation and safety instructions to the distribution of glacier walking boots to the flight, glacier landing and VERY informative 1/2 hour glacier walk led by naturalist who... More

If you are making just one trip to Alaska make sure you take the helicopter out to a glacier. It was truly amazing and i have never felt safer. Even our 9 year old daughter who is afraid of heights loved it. Not only do you get to visit the glacier Temsco's experienced guides are there to give you many... More

We took the helicopter up to a glacier for a dogsled tour. We booked the tour through M&M Tours-Skagway. Before boarding the helicopter, we had to watch a very short safety video. We were then given a safety vest to wear as well as boots that fit over our regular shoes. No bags are allowed on the helicopter, but we... More

My fiancé and I booked the TEMSCO Helicopter Glacier tour as cruise excursion (Princess Cruises). I was worried about the cost - will it be worth it? - and was blown away at how "worth it" the tour was! Our helicopter pilot was knowledgable and happy to answer all of our random questions about what we were observing on our... More

We took this helicopter tour from Skagway up to and landed on the Meade Glacier. There, we met with experienced guides who led us around and showed us the features of the glacier. The flight alone was worth the cost!
