We toured as much of Alaska as we could in 8 days. Everything from hiking in Denali to a private boat tour in Homer. The helicopter tour was the activity we enjoyed and talked about the most. My wife and I were celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary. Most of our tours involved hiking where we could only see so much (with hours of walking involved). While we very much enjoyed that, the helicopter tour allowed us to see so much in a relatively short amount of time. Tanner was our pilot and he was fantastic. Everything from pointing out wildlife, providing flexibility in our route, answering our many questions, to playing AC/DC over the headset. He even took the attached picture for us. Coming over the mountaintop to the views of a bay beyond were simply incredible and unforgettable. On a side note, my wife generally does not like flying. Even a big commercial flight gets her a little queasy. I will say I was nervous booking a helicopter tour knowing that she gets "sea-sick" quite easily. I/we could not have been more surprised at how easy and smooth the flight was for her. You are so close to the action but do not have the uneasy feeling. My wife likened the sensation to driving in a car. So if you are nervous about not feeling well, take it from us that was not an issue at all.

Tanner took us on an incredible flight where we were able to see Bear glacier up close. We saw mountain goats and several black bear on the mountain sides. He circled back for areas we wanted to view again or up closer. Highly recommend this tour to everyone!

The views are absolutely amazing! So glad we did this trip. It’s expensive, but views and experiences from air at slower pace and up close is so worth it. Would do it again. Staff is super great to work with. Only negative is using portable potty outside. Very small draw back, but only improvement I can see to be critical.
