  • Wife & I had a month doing Alaska by high level land tour & cruise in August '18. Highlights by far were our day with Tom to the Knik Glacier followed a day later by a glacier landing at the top of Mt. McKinley Glacier with Chris from Talkeetna Air Taxi. Both operations very professional, highly informative & reasonably priced. We had a great time in Alaska, met wonderful people & can't wait to return.
  • I believe it is the closest glacier tour to Anchorage, where you can get up close and explore the edge of the glacier. Sheets of Dryas octopetala are found in the area. It would be amazing to see this in bloom in the spring. Randy from Juneau was our guide. He is a great guide. He knows a lot, just ask him. It really is a great trip. Worth your time and money. Do dress in layers it is breezy when on the river boat heading towards Colony and Knik glaciers.
  • What an absolute blast, incredible tour. Fording rivers in massive trucks, boating past glacial calves up to an incredible viewpoint. These guys are fantastic, everybody had an incredible time.
  • Tom is an EXCELLENT tour guide and a great person to spend a day with. If you can spare the time and come out of Anchorage for a boat ride with him, I would highly recommend it! Loved getting up close and personal with the glacier ice.
  • What a fun way to experience a glacier tour, air boat through the iceberg speckled lake and view the glacier from the water. The ride out to the lake itself is worth the trip.
