Going with Matanuska Glacier Adventures was a great choice for us. They are the same group you pay the access fee to, and were able to offer a private 3 hour trekking tour for a better price than any other group around. But the main reason we were glad to go with them was that it was a private tour and though our guide Sam was very informative he spent most of his time showing us some of the best features of the glacier itself (infinitely preferable to not walking as far and listening to more facts). I do believe we trekked further and higher into the glacier than any other group I saw that day, and I can easily say that those groups missed out on a lot! He was also very careful about checking how comfortable we were going to certain spots, kept a good pace for all of us and very faithfully fulfilled his second duty as our group photographer (thanks Sam!). A highly recommended company to go with!
This is perhaps an obvious thing to everyone but me, but there's water everywhere (coming out of the glacier wall, running underneath the glacier and coming out in little pools, carving out little channels), so bring waterproof shoes or an extra pair of socks to change into after.
