This tour was awesome. They picked us up on time and the bus driver gave great info on way to glacier. We were able to hike to the beach and falls. Whale watching was great. The boat was really nice. Captain Ken and Ashley were informative and excited. Saw lots of whales and wildlife
Great trip. John and Troy were superb. Would highly recommend to anyone.
We really enjoyed our tour. Easy access from the ship and we saw several whales. Then we went on to the glacier and was returned to the ship in plenty of time to board.
Best tour ever! First time in Alaska and it was worth the money for sure. We saw alot of orcas and whales, the glacier was gorgeous and the tour of juneau wad beautiful. Highly recommended this trip.
We had a great tour, especially whale watching. One of our favorite Alaskan excursions.

We had a great tour, the boat is very fast and comfortable, there are snacks and drinks being served by the tour guide, the boat is not crowded and very comfortable, great value for the money.
We enjoyed the excurion very much. The two guides were fun and helpful...my husband has a disability and they could not have been more helpful!
Would recommend this tour in a heart beat!.
Unbelievable! Magical experience. A challenging, yet beautiful hike brought us to the ominous Mendenhall Glacier. Wow! Our very small group with Above and Beyond Alaska (ABAK) ran into another ABAK group and was able to discover a brand new (that day!) ice cave! Amazing experience. A must!
Doing what: Mendenhall Glacier Trek and Climb
We loved this tour! We were two adults, two kids (teens) and we all had an exciting and awesome time.Tour guides were excellent and very knowledgeable about the area and sea life.We saw humpback whales, seals, orcas, eagles and lots of beautiful mountains, glacier and waterfall views. A must see!!!
This tour was amazing!
Boat captain did a great job of finding whale activity. Would have liked a little more time at the glacier to complete all the hiking. Well organized and on time.
The trip was about the right to see Mendenhall Glacier and take a whale watching trip. We spend an hour at the glacier and the museum. This is after a 15-20 minutes bus trip that was narrated by a local resident. She was well informed and shared a lot of information that you wouldn't get from just any driver. The whale watching trip was a bit of a disappointment. The trip was fine but the whale just weren't there yet. We only say 3 compared to some trips when I have seen over 20. Overall great trip for the money. 10 cheaper than the cruise ship.

Great guides, great boat and lots of whales!
The Mendenhall Glacier Tour needs to be expanded to give at least another 45 minutes to walk to water falls or take advantage of what the visitor's center provides - short film, ranger presentations, different viewing areas. We wanted to see the glacier from the waterfalls, but could not make the complete walk because we would have missed the tour bus. Other than that we would definitely recommend this tour to others.
I liked the city of Juneau and the tour package was reasonably priced. The first part of the tour is sight seeing of the town and visit to Mendenhall Glacier. Then you take the tramway on your own and have lunch on the top of the mountain. The town is charming, and the walk to the glacier was pleasant. So was the tramway ride. My only complain is that this is not so much of a guided tour. The driver or the guide will give you a ride to places, but she does not come off the bus and explain things for you. If there was a public transportation available, you can do it all by yourself with the help of a guide book. Our driver/guide was actually nice and I am not complaining about her. I just think that it would be better if the guide is more involved so that we have better understanding of the area. Lunch on the mountain was surprisingly delicious. The salmon was properly cooked and the corn on the side was so delicious. Overall I recommend the tour.
The whale watching portion of the trip was great. The city tour not so much. The guide was great, but could not see out of the bus, the head rests were in the way.
The tour was good with a local guide. The glacier is awesome but we could have spent a little longer there.
The sights we saw were so incredible! The tram ride and Salmon meal were wonderful. The glacier park was lovely. The information shared on the bus tour lacked interest. Perhaps the guide could have more training to share the special highlights of Juneau.
Not much of a city tour, but did enjoy the glacier and tram ride. Also, the salmon dinner was awesome!
Tour was okay. Deck hand were friendly, captain was not. Biggest issue we had was the captain staying so far away from the whales. Other boats were getting really close to the whales. We would try someone different next time
Directions to meet the tour were perfect. The tour around town was informative, all be it a little boring. After about 40 minutes driving around we headed to the glacier. The bus was climate controlled and comfortable. We saw whales spouting and a few we could see their backs and tails.
Tour was just okay. Hard to make Juneau anything other than the small city it is. Guide repeated himself continually. Would have liked more than 50 minutes at Mendenhall Glacier to hike to the waterfall without hurrying back to the bus. Tram ride gives great view of the area. Dinner was delicious.
It was not well- organized. The salmon dinner took so long. We missed the trolley tour.
