The cruise to Alaska was nice. But the highlight, undoubtedly was the helicopter ride to the glacier. TEMSCO pilot was amazing. Trish, the girl at the front desk was horrible, but thank G*d she did not join us on the ride. The pilot was amazing! We walked on the glacier, and the ride was smooth and breathtaking. If you go to Alaska, this helicopter ride is not be missed!!

Although Juneau just had a very severe cold winter with lots of snow and rain, our TEMSCO Helicopter Glacier Tour - Pilots Choice - was an Excellent Adventure and deserves 10 Thumbs Up👍! Our TEMSCO A-Team consisted of two Customer Service Reps and our Pilot, who demonstrated top flying skills and professionalism! Having missed Juneau on a NCL Cruise 🚢 back in 2016, we made up for it with this quick trip to visit Juneau and TEMSCO! Hopefully, next time around the weather will be more accommodating!

We visited Skagway as part of a Holland America line cruise. A few of us from the cruise chose the helicopter flight to the glacier as our morning excursion. After the safety briefing, weigh-in and kitting out with glacier boots, we boarded one of the helicopters and lifted off over the fjord and past our cruise ship. We followed another chopper between the mountains for about 15 minutes as we made our way to the glacier. With only myself and another guy in the back of the copter (with a couple and the pilot up front), we had lots of room to take photos. The scenery was stunning and more was to come. Touching down on the glacier a couple of hundred metres behind the other copter, we carefully exited and were given hiking poles to help steady us on the uneven surface. The pilot (Jerry) took our photos in front of the aircraft, then we carefully explored the glacier as he explained points of interest to us. Jerry was as good a guide as he was a pilot (and that's good). We met up with the passengers from the other craft and could see they were all as excited as we were. After about 30 minutes on the ice, we lifted off again and chased the other chopper between and over mountains, gazing down on multiple glaciers as we flew. The weather was perfect and so was the scenery. Too soon, we were banking back into the fjord, passing the cruise ships and touching down at their base. The next group asked us how it was, but could tell from our grins that it was great. The flight was worth every cent and was something I'll never forget. Definitely a must-do experience in Skagway. TEMSCO Helicopters staff were very patient, helpful and professional and I have no hesitation recommending their tour.

This was the highlight of the trip. Good pilot, pointed out a lot. Great guides on the glacier. Took us to see various things on the glacier. Guides also took great family pics.
