This hike was a fantastic experience for me and my daughter. It was quite a challenge and our guide's experience was a great help for our success. We also visited a native Alaskan exhibit that was well presented and provided us with an educational experience. The video views from the glacier were magnificent so make sure your camera has room for lots of pics. We went to an excellent restaurant after the hike that has a very nice menu. Restaurant offers very nice views. Our guide had excellent knowledge of the history of Alaska and answered all our questions. In short a fantastic tour!!

Bus tour guide did not accompany us due to feeling sick. Glacier tour guide went and she mainly spoke Spanish with a spanish couple on our trip and spent most of her time with them. My crampons did not fit correctly and kept twisting causing me to slide and fall. You need appropriately senior guides who respect all individuals and not ones who are too young and act like juveniles. It ruined an obvious beautiful experience. We paid too well for this guide to ruin it for us and it was our last tour of our vacation. . .
