This was my first time on a helicopter. Needless to say, I had a great time. This was the most thrilling thing I have ever done. Highly recommend!

If you do anything in Skagway, you must do this! A little pricy, but the experience is worth it. My 3 children and I took the helicopter tour to the ice glacier where we met up with a dog sledding camp set up during the summer. The dog musher took us on a summer dog-sledding ride for just the right... More

We did the glacier discovery tour but you can also do a dog-sledding one. Make sure you know what you weigh (with clothes on!) so that they can balance the helicopter correctly and also take a pair of gloves. You land on a glacier and it is chilly so be prepared! You will be given special 'boots' to put on... More

We had a wonderful time and loved the whole experience. We have been on helicopter excursions before and this was up there with the best. Efficient operation, well trained and knowledgeable staff. For anyone expecting pristine ice, you need to read up on glaciers before you go so you know what to expect. We got some great photos and on... More

We booked our tour directly through Celebrity Cruise line to make sure everything was good. And it went smoothly. Our tickets were in the room upon arrival. TEMSCO was a very organized organization. We met a TEMSCO representative at the place we were informed to. They asked us our weight as they arraigned us in the helicopter according to that.... More

If you booked a helicopter tour in Skagway, chances are you are flying with Temsco. We booked the "Helicopter Glacier Discovery' tour from Costco Travel as a shoreline excursion for our cruise to Alaska. In this tour, a 20-minute helicopter ride (each way) will take you to a glacier, so you can walk over there, with some guides, for about... More

We booked a trip to the Meed Glacier on Temsco through our Disney Cruise line. Pilot Carney was knowledgable, personable, and great with our boys, ages 7 and 10. They loved being able to speak on the headsets and he responded back enthusiastically to their frequent "awesome"s and "wow"s. He took their questions that didn't seem so serious to the... More

We booked this excursion through our ship cruise and it was fantastic. It was our first helicopter flight and it was so exciting but the best part was landing on the glacier. The helicopters seat 5 people and the pilot. you are supplied with glacier boots. be aware that you cannot take camera bags and ipads on the helicopter. they... More

In July 2014 my wife and I took an Alaskan cruise. I booked a glacier tour with TEMSCO in Skagway. IT WAS FANTASTIC. Our pilot was Cody; he did a super job pointing out interesting points of several glaciers and was very knowledgeable about the area and Alaska. We landed on one of the glaciers, probably where no humans have... More

We had a great Alaskan trip and did a lot while there, but this topped it all off. We did the two hour dog sled and helicopter ride. We got to meet and play with the dogs, learn a little about Alaska with an amazing helicopter guide and that wasn't even the best part. The ride on top of a... More
