The helicopter ride was amazing. From start to finish, the views were breathtaking and the area where the pilot landed to view the two lakes and waterfall at the bottom of the glaciers was spectacular. Also the pilot himself was very friendly, filled with knowledge and was an excellent tour guide in both the helicopter ride and the exploration hike in the mountains. Would highly recommend

Beautiful location. I live in Alberta and spend a ton of time in the mountains but had never done the helicopter tour. Everyone should do this at least once! It’s definitely pricey, why I could never justify it as someone who lives in the area. Worth it once, would definitely go again if maybe there was a resident discount.

I loved it. My issue was that there was no info about the local company process or app to be able to down load and access the tour. I had to call. Wasted almost an hour as I as driving alone and had to stop multiple times

Everyone was super friendly. The whole experience was even better than expected. Definitely recommended.

The audio file is made informative and also humorous. It's nice to hear the information.
