    Viator’s description of this flight is misleading!
    Johnn_B, Aug 2022
    Viator over sold this flightseeing trip. Go directly through Talkeetna Air Taxi and book one of their longer flights… this is the shortest flight time and lowest elevation flight and does not include a glacier landing even though the description states that you could purchase an upgrade to do so. After I booked the flight there was no upgrade available. The folks at Talkeetna Air Taxi were wonderful and they informed me that they are not responsible for the Viator advertisement. Viator should make it clear that the “Southern” route is the shortest flight offered and that unless you purchase a flight that specifically includes landing on a glacier, there is no availability for an upgrade.
    Great Pilot Narration

    Our pilot was very informative and we learned many new things about the glaciers and history of the area.

    Absolutely amazing. I got really lucky and was upgraded to the flight with the stop on the glacier, and I am so glad I did. It was breathtaking. If you’re debating taking this one or upgrading to the one with the stop on the glacier... trust me it is well worth the upgrade!!!!!
