The trip was great was start to finish. Friendly experienced staff who were super kind. Amazing heli ride and awesome time on the glacier. I was a bit nervous about cost but it was more than worth it.

This trip was fantastic! I had so much fun going through some tunnels and exploring some of the glacier. Rich was an awesome guide; entertaining, knowledgeable and keeping an eye on our safety all of the time. The helicopter rides afforded fabulous views as well.
