The entire flight experience was superb from the wait to my flight and landing!! The office staff was fun and inviting! Hung out with them and the chillest cat around. Their random break out in song and dance and friendly conversation really helps calm the nerves!! The pilot was great as well!! It was a little windy and bumpy but with a stable voice he guided us through the mountain ranges. Dropped knowledge about the local frontier life and land marks. They made the call to push back our take off time due to winds, but it let the mountain open up to spectacular views. Trust their calls. It will be totally worth it.

My girlfriend and I spent two weeks traveling throughout Alaska, and this was the highlight of our trip (it was even better than catching a 60lb halibut in Prince William Sound). We lucked out with amazing weather, and very clear views of Denali. We're from Colorado, and we've experienced great views atop 14'er peaks, but everything is bigger in Alaska! Denali dwarfs the surrounding 14'er peaks, and it makes for a very humbling experience flying from 300' above sea level to the base of Denali in roughly 25 minutes. My girlfriend is a nervous flier, and our pilot made her feel extremely safe. She explained that she is a mother and she had been flying since she was a kid. It instilled a soothing sense of anxiety relief. The plane seated 10 persons total, and it was a very smooth flight. The plane had modern avionics, and it was very clean. Both these factors lead us to believe the plane was well maintained and safe. The glacier landing was well worth the upgrade cost. It made for a great photo opportunity. The shear rock faces double those of Yosemite, and the deep blues on the glaciers cannot be replicated through photos. Our pilot was knowledgeable of the geography in the area, and the flight path enables great views for passengers on both sides of the plane. 10 out of 10 would recommend!

What an incredible flight. Lucked out with blue skies and a few small clouds to help the pictures. Pilot was very informative and made sure everyone had a good view no matter which side of the plane you were on.Highly recommend the glacier landing to have the complete experience.

The tallest Mountain in North America has been on my bucket list for many years. Talkeetna Air Taxi allowed me to see it from every angle & it was breath taking. The pilot (Chase) was outstanding, pointing out terrain and land marks. The entire staff were very helpful, polite, knowledgeable. I would recommend paying the little extra for the summit tour and glacier landing you will not be disappointed. Thank you TAT!!!!

Thank you Talkeetna Air Taxi for taking us on such a memorable trip. Their professionalism and prioritization of safety and experience above money was evident in every interaction we had with them. They pushed back our takeoff multiple days in a row due to inclement weather. And I couldn't be more grateful that they did! Once the sky was clear enough we had epic views on our flight, punctuated by a surreal glacier landing (highly recommended). I would advise that anyone interested in flying into Denali provide themselves with enough flexibility to stay in or around Talkeetna for a few days to make it more likely that the weather will cooperate - you won't regret it! We felt safe as could be with our pilot, who winters as a university professor in Florida, at the controls. What a day!!!

Excellent communication and organization. Had to fly the "low show" on our glacier landing flight due to low clouds. Did an excellent job of showing all that could be shown, much of which we wouldn't have seen on the higher trip, and we were able to sneak in and land on the glacier. We got a partial refund because it was the "low show" without even asking.

This flightseeing excursion was INCREDIBLE. We had great weather to see Denali and do the glacier landing, and it is absolutely worth the extra money to do the glacier landing instead of just flying. The employees were efficient, helpful, and professional, our pilot friendly and capable, and the experience start to finish was 10/10. I would, without hesitation, book this again.

Eric, my son, Tina his wife, and I were happy that we had added a Talkeetna Air Taxi flight that included a glacier landing to our itinerary. That flight was awesome to Mt. Denali, the tallest mountain in North America. I felt as though we had landed one level shy of Heaven -- total silence, pure white snow with diamond crystals, the bluest of skies, white fluffy clouds. The only words I could utter were "Thank You, God".

What a wonderful experience to kick off our visit to Alaska!! It was absolutely amazing to get to see Denali up close and the glacier landing was phenomenal! We were worried about what we would get to see because it was partly to mostly cloudy when we took off, but our pilot, Chris, was an expert at knowing where to take us for the best viewing with the given conditions. He was also great at telling the story of the area while we travelled. Besides the flight experience itself, the booking, check-in, gearing up, etc. was super smooth. We originally had booked an afternoon trip, but because of weather moving in, we called that morning and asked if we could bump to an earlier trip. The person we worked with was very friendly and accommodating and facilitated our request with ease. All around A+ operation!!

We flew on the Grand Denali Tour with Glacier Landing on July 10 and it was spectacular! The glacier landing really adds to this experience and is well worth the extra money.
Our original flight was scheduled for July 9 but the flight was cancelled due to weather. Be aware that this may happen (and after a 2 hour drive from Anchorage, wasn't fun but we went on an awesome hike to Reed Lakes instead on the drive back). Talkeenta Air Taxi was very accommodating on trying to reschedule us and gave us a partial refund as some in our group couldn't make the next day.
If you are in Alaska don't miss this experience!
