  • Incredible. although that doesn't do it justice. the price is definitely worth it! don't let that deter you. Quickest 20 minutes of your life so take in every second. Staff are so lovely!

  • Its like so so. Not so good. They gave us 10 minutes in glacier. What u people do in 10 minutes. Atlist it should be 30 minutes so they can fun. One time can do. Very expensive.

  • 100% worth the money! Had a great experience and even a cool Ice caves! Exoerienced and funny guide! MUST DO

  • The Heli-hike is an awesome experience. Definitely a must!

  • Great experience! Even though the day we booked for the tour rained heavily, we were bumped to the next day earliest slot. Appreciate their effort for that. However, counter staffs are not the friendliest, the pilot mumbled throughout the trip, but for the view at the top of the glacier, definitely worth it.
