Juneau Helicopter Tour Excursion Reviews

Helicopter tours are a must-do in Alaska and it's easy to understand why. Nothing beats the view of Juneau's glaciers and icy waters from above.

We were there for an hour but 30 minutes was spent getting everyone's gear on. We walked about 300 feet over to get some water and it was over. :( Read Less

Honestly I though it would be more exciting. It was fun and cool to helicopter but the Glacier area is not as awe inspiring the ride is very short and the time up there is short. Not a huge value. but kids liked it

This was cancelled att the thirteenth hour. The weather forecast some days prior to us getting to Juneau was dismal as it was on the day we were due to undertake the excursion. We met with the excursion team who gave us every indication it would go ahead. We were surprised as cloud cover and level was exceedingly low. Prior to our disembarkation they indicated there were spaces on other interesting excursions eg Best of Juneau. We were tendered to shore and on arrival some 15 minutes Later we were met by the disembarkation by a member of staff who informed us and other guests that it had been cancelled. When we asked if we could join another group ie Best of Juneau they said the coach had just left. No one was able to assist us so we had to invent our own activity by checking against any other possible excursions that had not left which we were able to join. What a mess - no joined up thinking. Clients like us are clearly at the back of the queue. Read Less

First time on a helicopter.
First time on a helicopter. Was lucky enough to be given a 50% discount envelope which helped pay for this. It was a 10 minute ride to the glacier, 20-30 minutes walking on it then 10 minute flight back. Very cool experience.
