What a great trip up to the Mead Glacier! Our pilot was great and came over the headsets during our trip to tell us about the area we were flying over, he was very knowledgeable! The guides up on the glacier we landed on were fun and informative- all in all a great trip! Just be advised you will not... More

We were on the Royal Caribbean, Radiance of the Seas. I arranged the excursion independently from the cruise ship, thus saving $30 per person (we were a family of 4). We received an email with written instructions. We were to walk to the helicopter pad from the ship. We started, with no idea how far away it was. It took... More

Our original 9:00 a.m. tour on 03 July 2014 to the Denver Glacier from Skagway, Alaska was not available due to weather conditions, but TEMSCO's friendly staff booked us on the 2:15 p.m. tour hoping that the weather would clear up. It was worth the wait. Ground staff, pilots, and dog camp personnel were all great. It was one of... More

We went on the Temsco helicopter tour to the Denver Glacier for dogsledding on our recent RC Alaskan Cruise. The experience was awesome and surreal, don't get me wrong, but Temsco's customer service is lacking. We booked the tour through the ship and made sure we let them know that for $2650. Temsco separated our family of 5 in the... More

We did this when we were in Skagway a month ago. The tour was amazing, from the helicopter we could see the forested mountains and the glaciers. Then the helicopter landed on the glacier and we had a once-in-a-lifetime experience of dog sledding. This was wonderful, I had the feeling we were in a fairy tale! Huge thanks to the... More

What a trip!! Chopper to a glacier and then get to be pulled around by a team of sled dogs! WOW. The flight to and from the glacier is just as spectacular. Our pilot was knowledgeable and friendly - this is a MUST DO! Thank you

What a way to experience Alaska! Helicopter Dog Sledding! The staff at TEMSCO, the pilot and the musher on the glacier were all very friendly and professional. It was great to experience my first helicopter ride by landing on a glacier and the learn about the dog sled team and enjoy some dog kisses. A once in a life time... More

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
