Hard work for arms, but precious experience

Paddling was hard work so that I got arm muscle pain for next three days. But the guides are very kind and skillful, making sure our safety on glacier. This tour is definitely the highlight of my Alaska trip!

Fantastic and wonderful experience! The guide was excellent, very enthusiastic and with knowledge of the area. It can be done perfectly, the most complicated part was that we rowed all at once.

This was such a fun adventure, the agenda was exactly what happened! I traveled solo on the Ruby Princess from Seattle to AK and decided to do my research on Viator and TripAdvisor for tours. If you want an off-the-beaten path/less expensive/mid-active/unique tour that cruise ships won't offer and the chance to walk on the Mendenhall Glacier before it melts all away, I highly recommend booking this tour and also with Above and Beyond Alaska (ABAK). ABAK shuttle brings the group to ABAK's central warehouse operations to get outfitted for the tour - the warehouse was very clean, organized, and had a bunch of awesome gear that you can purchase (t-shirts, hats, etc.). They even gave us a free ABAK reusable water bottle for the tour and also gave it away as a parting gift - really thoughtful way to show how much they appreciate their customers. I appreciated bonding with all the people I have come to share this experience with. I had the honor of being led by guides Mike and Dan on the 7/22/19 afternoon trip - you guys totally were so helpful (taking pics of our group, being so patient and attentive with me due to my torn ACL issue while walking on the glacier), informative, and fun to chat with. Thanks so much for making my experience from canoeing to walking on the Mendenhall Glacier life moments to remember.
