If you are looking for a once-a-life-time adventure, make sure you check out this amazing tour! The crew was extremely helpful and accommodating, especially our guide Sadie. She's been kind, patient, considerate and made our experience really unforgettable. Will definitely come back for more adventures if we are in Girdwood again!

If you are thinking about booking this experience- JUST BOOK IT. It is worth every single penny. Our guide, Cory, was AWESOME. The views are spectacular and the experience overall is just amazing. My husband and I loved this experience so much and highly recommend to everyone who is planning a trip to Alaska. All the guides are super nice, knowledgeable, and very professional. The helicopter ride is wonderful to see all the views and if you’re lucky even a bit of wildlife. The glacier is awesome and the view with the mountains behind it is impeccable. This is by far one of my favorite experiences I have ever done.
