Whale watching was fantastic! Not enough time at the Glacier, we were there on the last cruise ship of the season and were taken to the Glacier first and had to be back to the bus stop in an hour to go the the whale watching destination. Better to do the whale watching first and then take the shuttle back at your leisure.

The Mendenhall Glacier and the cascade was a really nice walking we sow a porcupine, and we took a great pics, and in the whale tour Rachel and the Captain did a great job, we sow a few whale tales and the best part was the sea lions island.

I'm giving this 5 stars only because of the whale watching, which was fantastic. Amy our naturalist and Captain Dirk were as excited as we were to see whales breeching, and we also got quite close to a number of whales spouting, arcing, flipping their tails, etc. Dirk stays in contact with other operators so that they can alert each other to the more active whales. One even dove under our boat! The glacier is beautiful but you can't get particularly close. You can walk about 1 mile to the waterfall, and stand right at the edge of it on a little beach. The tour allows more time than you need since that's about all you can do there. The "city tour" was a complete waste. Our "guide" literally called out such "landmarks" as the Walmart, junior high school, and McDonald's, along with a running spiel of tired jokes.

Excellent!! Glacier area was very beautiful and offered nice walking trails. The whale watching was phenomenal! Plenty of whales and even saw " bubble netting" with at least 14 whales! Excellent!

Our trip was absolutely wonderful. Our guide on the whale watching was a young girl named Sierra. She was wonderful. The glacier tour and city tour was great also

This was by far the best day that we experienced in Alaska. The city tour was excellent, and our native American guide gave us incites into the culture and history of the people of Juneau. The visit to Mendenhall Glacier was also an experience to remember, since we were able to explore, take many photos, and interact with park rangers at our leisure.

Little did we know that the experience would only get better on our whale-watching cruise. The cruise started with us viewing no less than 20 Bald Eagles on the beach having a salmon snack, continued with the siting of a pod of 15-18 Humpback Whales bubble feeding continuously over our 30-minute observation time, and ended with a quick view of a group of sea lions playing "king of the mountain" on a buoy. Thanks to our captain and crew for a wonderful adventure!

Good tour. Could have used more time at Mendenhall, and could have used a LOT less rain on the whale-watching cruise! Michele and Dirk were outstanding on the whale-watching portion of our tour.

The glacier was truly a sight to behold and one that words can't describe. The folks that took us on a whale watching excursion were truly passionate about what that do and it showed. The city tour was basic transportation, but I would highly recommend this total adventure.

Wonderful experience! Jess and T did a great job finding the whales and telling us about them. We were able to see humpbacks and orcas. They even let us stay out an extra 30 minutes in order to see everything. I would highly recommend this tour. The glacier was beautiful and worth the trip. The city tour was very interesting and covered a lot of great tourist attractions.
