Amazing Hike! We had two guides for a group of 11. They worked well with each other and made sure everyone enjoyed the hike and made sure we were safe, Brad and sarah were awesome! They were very knowledgeable and enjoyed what they were doing. I would recommend this hike! You must be in great physical shape...it is a difficult hike...however the most breath taking hike i have ever done!!! My only recommendation is more water is needed, they provided snacks and water. But, one water bottle in not enough for this 7 hour hike! This hike was the highlight of my Alaska Cruise trip!
We got to see inside a glacier cave...the most amazing! Wonderful views....this hike is a must! By far, one of the best exciting, breath taking things I have done!!!
Tour guides were all friendly, informative, and professional. I enjoyed this excursion far more than many of the Carnival alternatives and really glad we found it online. Excellent crew!
Knowledgeable guide, comfortable boat and even provided snacks and beverages.
(Kudos for the bathroom on board!) Enjoyed the Mendenhall Glacier Tour...plenty of time and we didn't feel rushed:)
A perfect excursion for young and old. It was much cheaper than the cruise ship. It was early in the season, we had a small group and the boat capstan got up into position to see a lot of whales. The Mendenhall Glacier was tour was great. Even with a few light showers it was outstanding. We highly recommend this combined tour.
I was very much impressed with the excursion and would recommend it to others. I will be looking at Viator again for our next cruise excursions.
Wow. What a breathtaking tour! I didn't know being speechless could be so literal. It was really amazing to actually walk on the glacier, while everyone at the visitor's center was so far away. This is definitely not an easy hike, it is very long and strenuous, but definitely worth it. My friend and I got lucky and it was just us two and the tour guide, so we went at our own pace. The guide was great! He stopped when we needed to, and took photos of us. He even readily jumped in the water of the streams to help us across. Being on the glacier was unbelievable; we even got very crisp water from a glacier stream! :) I would definitely do this again. Everyone should have this experience. Worth the price and then some!!!
The guides were excellent, we did indeed see lots of whales. The tour was also very informative.
This was such a great combination. We enjoyed every minute of it.
What a fantastic trip, highly recommended. It was the highlight of our Alaskan trip and we did see a number of whales, one of which was so close to the boat - absolutely incredible. The Mendenhall Glacier Tour was just as fantastic and completed a wonderful day. We decided to take the 20 minute walk along the trek to the fabulous waterfall and on the way spotted a mother bear and cub, and a juvenile bear. On the return we were amazed to see a bear crossing the path ahead of us and managed to get such a great photo. What an experience, do not miss this excursion, so well worth the money.
This tour exceeded our expectations! We saw whales breeching, tail flapping and swimming with their side fins waving at us. Some came about 30 feet from our boat. The captain had to turn off the engines and just drift because they came so close. I would recommend this excursion to anyone!!
Orca Enterprises does an awesome job doing whale watching tours in Juneau, Alaska. They are knowledgable, fun and very accommodating, not packing up their boat so that you can't move around. I can't imagine them not finding whales and other sealife. Capt. Larry actually "counts" how long the whales are down after diving and puts you right on the spot when they surface. The boat is very accommodating with great views inside or out--enclosed windows all the way around to keep you warm and wind free. Or you can go out back and up top for even more incredible views. Our highlight of the cruise.

Oh my god it was the most amazing experience we had, as a family. We were a group of six and we had three smart tour guides answering all our questions helping us specially me because I was afraid of hiking. Also one of the girls took her boots of and gave them to my daughter. When we finally got to the glacier it was breath taking, we had time for pictures and we also played with the snow. Absolutely recommend, but you need to be in shape for the walking and climbing, it’s worth every penny that we paid for the tour. Thanks for every thing. Melon family
An amazing excursion. Every person we met from Juneau Tours was extremely informative and nice. Our family had a fantastic time! Would highly recommend.
Great trip - lots of whales, seals and porpoise, The lady who led the tour was lovely as was the boat driver - comfy boat and great for viewing- just wish trip was a bit longer - would definitely recommend.
