    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.

    It was a amazing experience would definitely do it again but with a different company!! Was alittle weird during the COVID phase of life that people are joined in with you without knowing! And the hike part was okay! Mainly got soaked because the pilot brought us threw water no one seemed to really enjoyed it because you bring expensive camera phones and doesn’t say anything about water! But oh well wasn’t the worst the worst part was how creepy and touchy the pilot was to girls like my girlfriend did not enjoy it pay good money not to have creepy comments and him hugging and touching the girls as they go by him if you were going to do a helicopter tour do it with another company if you are bringing your girlfriend or a girl with you! Would’ve switched got a refund and went somewhere else if I know he was going to be weird
