Wonderful Tour in a beautiful area of Alaska. Very smooth takeoffs and landings.
Whale Watching Tour (5 stars) was excellent. We saw several whales. The guide was very informative.
The Mendenhall Glacier (4 stars) was beautiful. There was no guide for this. You get dropped off and told where to catch the bus back.
City Tour (zero stars). We did not have time to take this 2 hour tour. Upon check in at 8 am, we asked when the city tour would be. The answer was "sometime this afternoon. We don't have the time set yet"
We were scheduled to begin this day long adventure at 8am. We met at the designated time and were told we would leave at 8:45. At 8:45 we and most of the passengers were ready. However we sat in the bus for another 30 minutes waiting for people who were late. We were now 1 hour and 15 minutes behind schedule. After the whale watching tour, we had to wait at the dock for almost 30 minutes for a bus to take us to the glacier. Now we are 1 hour and 45 minutes behind. We did a quick tour of the glacier then waited again for a shuttle bus to take us back into town. We did not not arrive back to the dock area until 2pm. Not enough time for the city tour as we had to be back on our ship at 3:30.
So we ended up only getting 2/3 of the tour we paid for.
Beautiful drive. Lots of time for picture taking stops. Saw bears, mountain goats and eagles. Tour guide was entertaining and very informative.
Nice van ride to the river with an informative guide. The river was beautiful. The actual float trip was quite short. It took longer to get to and from the river than actual time on the river..
