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.
Wonderful tour and crew. Many close encounters with whales and other wildlife. I'd do it again in a heartbeat.
Saw a couple of spouts and tales . The waterfall at the bottom of the glacier was magnificent as was the scene of the entire area. Guide with a lot of knowledge. would recomend
We first toured Mendenhall Glacier. Very neat experience. We weren't up to walking to Nugget Falls, but the view was still well worth it. Very satisfied with the Whale Watching Cruise. The captain located several whales and we got as close as a charter board can legally get. Hard to capture a picture at the right moment, but took many in the attempt. The captain and mate was first rate. Would recommend both activities.
The Whale watching cruise was pretty awesome, as was the Glacier, all though the glacier part was mostly on your own. There was plenty of time to walk at your own leisure. The city tour was not much to look at, but hey, it is what it is.
THE TOUR WAS DELAYED BY 30 MIN. NOT REALLY A GOOD START. HAD TO WAIT AGAIN AT THE GLACIER FOR BUS ANOTHER 45 MIN. TO GO TO THE WHALE WATCHING. I DO RECOMMEND THIS TOUR BECAUSE OF THE PRICE AND STAFF. THE STAFF ON THE WHALE WATCHING VERY GOOD SAW SEVERAL WHALES. DUE TO THE TIME WE ARRIVED BACK WE DID NOT GET THE JUNEAU CITY TOUR WAS DISAPPOINTED IN THIS. WE SHOULD HAVE BEEN OFFERED MONEY BACK ON THE CITY TOUR BUT WAS NOT. WE DID NOT HAVE THE TIME TO SEARCH OUT SOMEONE TO ASK DUE TO THE TIME OUR SHIP WAS LEAVING. IF YOU HAVE LOTS OF TIME THIS TOUR IS WORTH THE PRICE.
This was a great disappointment. I booked myself and 13 of my guests. The tour did not start at the time designated. We were put on the wrong tour bus and, if I hadn't spoken up to the driver, we would have missed the whale watching experience. I previously took a Viator tour in Seville Spain and had high expectations. Unfortunately Viator did not provide the same level of service on the Juneau tour.
whales were way way too far away, not 200 yards more like 400 yards
Whale watching was GREAT...loved the entire trip..great captain and mate. We were disappointed in the other two tours (Mendenhall and Juneau city). The places were great but .....we were just dropped off at the glacier with no directions.....had to look for familiar faces from the whale watching and we discussed how we would get back. City tour had no directions either and we had to ask all over to find where we were to pick up the tour bus...almost gave up..but finally found someone who gave us directions......all this considered..would not book this again.....Too expensive........Would only book whale watching
