We flew with Phillip on a beautiful, sunny day, and what an adventure! The experience of flying in a helicopter is so exciting, and we landed on a glacier, got out and trekked around, and then landed on an snowfield and did the same, with spectacular views of several glaciers and mountain ranges along the way. Phillip was so nice and knowledgable!

We did the pilot's choice in Juneau. We did not book through our cruise ship. Everyone associated with Temesco was very friendly. We watched a safety video and were given "moon boots" to put over our regular shoes so we would not slip on the ice. We landed on two glaciers - Mendenhall and one other. It was quite cold and very rainy but an absolulely phenominal experience nevertheless. It was otherworldly to be standing on the glacier. And then looking down into crevasses filled with gorgeous blue water. Flying over waterfalls and sheer cliff walls. The helicopter was extremely smooth and I never felt scared even though I have rather a fear of heights. Our pilot was from Austria and made sure the four passengers were all comfortable and that we had a good experience. This was a highlight of our Alaska trip.

The flight to and walk on the Mendenhall Glacier was definitely expensive but we thought it was worth it. It was the highlight of a week-long cruise. Jeff, our pilot, was competent, calm and informative - good for 4 first-time fliers.

This was an unplanned excursion but we are so glad we did it even thought it was on the pricey side! Everything about it was just surreal! This is definitely an experience of a lifetime and a must! Amazing!!

We chose the "Pilots Choice" for our tour of the glaciers. We couldn't have picked any better. We were taken to the most amazing scenic areas imaginable. The sound of the water rushing beneath the ice is truly powerful. The smell of the clean, crisp air cannot truly be put into words. The pilots love and respect for these pristine lands truly shines through in their connection with visitors.
