Everyone thought we were crazy going to Alaska in September and warned the weather would be bad but we had the most clear weather imaginable. The helicopter ride to top of glacier was a highlight! We highly recommend this excursion!

One of the helicopter has a long door door latch and it took the scalp off my head, even wearing baseball cap. A simple statement by staff is mandatory watch your head. Had to argue to get an ice pack, they were determined a to take off. I was told this happened the previous week. How many times does this... More

On our stop in Skagway we went on a glacier discovery tour by helicopter. The views were outstanding and we did land on the glacier and got to walk around. Unfortunately, the trip did get a little boring because a glacier is a glacier with pretty much the same views.

Breath taking wilderness, this is what we took from our trip to Alaska and so well demonstrated here. The staff were very friendly and helpful, the usual mix of summer staff and locals, They all had great knowledge of the area and especially glaciers. We booked independently and had to walk to the office, rather than use the bus for... More

Now as much as I would have liked to complete a full review on this company for the service and great experience that I received, I can’t. We booked a Heli-hike and rail tour due to leave Skagway at 1100 hours. Unfortunately this was not possible due to the fog that was around on this day. This is not Temsco... More

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.
