I went on the Guide’s Choice” hike to the Mendenhall Glacier. My guide was an adorable and knowledgeable young lady - Dana. Despite being treated with extreme rudeness by another guest she maintained composure and professionalism. I learned so much interesting information about the plants at the glacier- Dana even made moss interesting! The glacier was stunning and the hike was a great way for me to experience Juneau. I couldn’t have been more pleased with every aspect of the excursion.

The Vip tour that my wife and I went on while were in port at Juneau was "Awesome". The guide Mila Lassuy was terrific. She knowledgably and informative. She answered everyone's questions and if she didn't know the answer she told us. It was great that she was from Alaska and it showed that she really loves the State of Alaska and being a guide. Captain Michael, put every one at ease with his easy going humor and personality. It seemed like he was able to know exactly where the whales would be and was able to call them in. He also knew where the sea lions would be. Guide/driver, Michael, was very happy and showed his enthusiasm and concern for safety while on the hike to the glacier.

Kirsten and Captain Brock were the best guides ever. Kirsten knew so much about Juneau, the Mendenhall Glacier and Gastineau Bay. Captain Brock knew how to get the boat into prime position to view the whales, and knew which whales were worth pursuing. This trip is a must do in Juneau.

Did a hike around the Mendenhall Glacier with Dirk Miller and his crew and it was amazing! Dirk was very knowledgeable and taught us all about the area during our hike. The scenery was beautiful. Would definitely work with them again when I visit Juneau.
