The Glacer Tour was great, the Skywalk was less. The monsterbusses were huge and the drivers verry informative and funny.

Fantastic! My husband and I loved it! Bring empty water bottles so you can fill up with some "cold" glacier water! Snow Treds for your shoes are a good idea. They sell them up there, but very pricey. Ice fields are slippery. Bring your camera.
Great

This is a must, it's cold war appropriate clothing and footwear as sloppy (unlike some people with flip flops on) our guide Fraser was simply superbly knowledgable, being Scottish I was surprised also that Fraser was Scottish lol along with his knowledge he had the Scottish patter and joke telling skills he certainly added to our experience, NOT TO BE MISSED!
Must do, at least once

Great experience. Go early around 9 am. It gets crazy busy after that. The tour guides are highly informative and entertaining
Definitely worth doing

Had a blast on this trip. Our guide, Captain Jack, had a lot of interesting facts and information about the area and the glaciers. They have 22 of the 24 ice explorers in the world so it's cool to experience riding in them. Get there early to get a spot, even after booking through viator. You have to check in and get an assigned time and for the glacier they almost filled up when we got there at 2:30. They scheduled ours for 4:45.
A Unique Experience

Standing on the Athabasca Glacier was an amazing experience. The view was spectacular. The skywalk was also fun.
Highly priced average tour

We were disappointed with this tour. First of all we ordered the tickets via Viator and it took for ever for the cashier to get us the tickets (about 20 minutes). Then we had to wait almost 2 hours before we could go on the tour because when you book through Viator no timeslot is booked and you have to wait for the first available time. A regular bus takes you across the road to a point where the “special” busses are. This takes you up the glacier. You can walk around a small area for about 20-25 minutes and then you go back to the switch point. The regular bus takes you to the skywalk. Maybe it was because the tours had just started and the process was not very smoothly because we had to wait at every stop about 10 minutes to wait for another bus. Overall: the tour was not worth the money and booking through Viator is not recommended because there is no timeslot booked and you have to wait a long time.
Glacier adventure!

It was amazing! We had 30 minutes at the top of the glacier but no one stayed out there the full 30! Cold but glad I did it!
Drinking glacial water at the source!
