I have never been in a helicopter before. I was nervous. I was even more nervous when they told me to get in the front seat. IT was amazing, I can't describe it enough to how awesome this trip was. From the moment they picked us up at the dock of our cruise ship, the preflight safety checks, putting on... More

I've been in helicopters before but this beats them all ... by a long, long shot! The other reviews already state it -- the scenery is out of a movie set. What I haven't seen stated is that we flew in a fleet of four helis, with ours being the last. We not only got a great view of the... More

I booked this as an excursion for my six year old daughter and I. What a wonderful experience! We both loved the helicopter ride up to the glacier, the dog sledding, the people, and of course - the dogs. This may have been the priciest of excursions we had booked throughout our trip, but it was definitely the most worth... More

We were booked for the helicopter dogsled tour, but it was cancelled due to bad weather. Fortunately we were able to take a helicopter to the Meade glacier and walk around ON the glacier! It was AMAZING!!! The helicopter company was professional and organized. They outfit you in boots that fit over your shoes, a vest, and trekking poles. We... More

We had a great experienced young pilot who conducted a great tour and narrative. We landed on a glacier and with the ice boots provided by the company we walked about the glacier for at least 40 minutes. It was quite an education on the origins of glaciers and the fact they are like a living being constantly growing and... More

Took the helicopter glacier tour in August 2016. Truly a once in a lifetime experience. The staff was extremely efficient and knowledgable. Our helicopter pilot doubled as a guide to the surrounding breathtaking nature that we viewed on our 20 minute ride to the glacier itself. At the glacier, the staff walked everyone around to see first hand the awe... More

FANTASTIC! They were organized, efficient. Helicopters were clean, new and well maintained. The pilots were very professional and friendly. The ride to the glacier was beautiful and could only be topped by the experience on the glacier. Our guide on the glacier was informed and very helpful. The guide knew what he was talking about because he had a degree... More

While in Skagway, my daughter and I took the Meade Glacier helicopter tour. Words can't describe what we experienced in this tour. First off our pilot, Luke was fantastic and gave us a ton of information about what we were seeing. He then landed us on the Meade Glacier where we got a guided tour of what we were walking... More

Absolutely Amazing! Our tour took us to Meade Glacier where our tour guide and pilot answered any/all questions you might have about the area or the glacier. Unfortunately the dogsledding portion of our excursion was cancelled due to weather but the tour company offered the alternative of going to Meade Glacier still via helicopter). Everything was handled smoothly with the... More
