4 glacier helicopter tour with 20-30 minutes on a glacier. If you can afford this, do it! Awesome views of several glaciers from the air, then land on glacier for a 20 minute or so tour. Our guide was excellent, and landing on the glacier was other-worldly, and extremely cool (and cold!, bring a something warm, even if it is warm in Juneau!).
Super well done! Guides are all actual Bering sea fishermen, with great stories to tell. Lots of "hands-on" with the sea creatures, nice tour.
Bus ride up was fine. Train ride down was fun. Customs were ridiculous!! Spent 30 minutes at the Canadian border waiting for customs (there was a line of buses). Then, turned around immediately and boarded a train. THEN, at the end of the train-ride, had to wait ANOTHER 30 minutes to get our passports check AGAIN! Of course, now we're running late, so have to cut the rest of our tour short. We were under the supervision of our tour guides or on the train the entire time, why the necessity for all the extra security? Especially since in Victoria, B.C. a couple days later we spent the entire day in Canada and nobody needed to see my passport at all.
Somebody needs to figure this all out, it spoiled our day a little.
Butchart is a wonderful tour, worth the drive to see.
Rented a private limo at the doc. Local gentleman who owned 3 limos. Ours was a classic Damler limo, and the driver was the owner. Out to Butchart Gardens for 1.5 hour tour...well worth it!!! Then a drive around town, our driver obviously loved his home, and it showed in the tour. Very personal, well done.
