A wonderful short tour. Our operator arrived at our hotel on time and was very informative in telling us about the history of Anchorage and the culture. He pointed out all of the highlights on the trip and was very accommodating in taking photos of my wife and me. Next time we will return a little earlier in the year when things are buzzing and more activities are taking place. Thanks!
This was a wonderful excursion. We saw all the highlights of Anvhorage and our driver was amazingly knowledgeable and told us wonderful stories about Alaska we would not have heard anywhere else. So glad we made this last minute reservation!
This was the start of 13 magical days in Alaska. The entire trip was well planned with the railroad and rafting experience sensational. It was a trip that could be enjoyed by all ages. The guide on the raft was knowledgeable and informative. The experience could not have been better.
The tour guides did a very nice job of explaining things, the views were spectacular and the Spencer Glacier was definitely worth seeing. The float trip was great, it was very interesting getting up close to the ice bergs and again the scenery was incredible.
a lot of good information, incredible sights to see!
Doing what: Matanuska Glacier Hike from Anchorage
Very nice operation. Small and comfortable minibus with knowledgable and friendly guide. Was very accomodating and helpful.
The tour was extremely informative and well-planned. An added plus was pick-up and drop-off at our son's residence where we were visiting. The guides were very courteous and knowledgeable and were able to answer questions that were posed by the tourists. I would definitely recommend this tour.
This was an amazing trip, starting with a train journey through Portage to Whistle Stop Spencer Glacier. Dressed in our 'elegant' boots, ponchos and life jackets, we then jumped into our rafts and set off across the lake to get a close up view of the glacier. We were surrounded by icebergs which, though not Titanic-size, still dwarfed our rafts and made it exceedingly challenging for our rower. We then moved on apace down river for about five miles, meeting a few Grade 2 rapids head on, before being picked up in the middle of nowhere by the excellent Alaskan Railroad.
Our tour guide was great! We just didn't find the tour to be that interesting. Service was good.
our hiking guide Amy was patient, accomplished, informative, and personable
The tour train, the views, the Spencer Glacier Float trip itself are great! The weather was awesame and the guide excellent
However the company offered in the website (and it was in the printed voucher too) a free lunch and nobody offered it and nobody even answered when I complained (other group complained about the same and they were really hungry!!)
Absolutely a beautiful place. The trail is muddy and our shoes were soaking wet but we did not care. It was worth it.
Our guide was very knowledgeable and very friendly. After the whole day hike, my wife and I felt like he was a friend.
