Fun way to see some of Alaska!

The bus driver was so personalable, and told us a lot about the history of the area. Nice hike to the falls, took us about half the time he said it would. Saw a porcupine in a tree, and the hike, falls and glacier was definitely worth seeing. The salmon bake was a very cozy spot with lots of great food.

September 23, 2019
This was an excellent tour. The glacier is amazing. The salmon bake was very good. Our bus driver was very good but not quite as funny or entertaining as a few others we had during the week. We saw the salmon swimming in the stream and bald eagles.

Great tour guide who taught us a lot. The glacier was magnificent and awe-inspiring. At the salmon bake the buffet style food was good, but the nearby trail was exceptional. So much natural beauty!

Did not expect the tour to be absolutely unforgettable ..the weather was gorgeous and the way to the tour start was easy . Our tour driver was very informative and animated . Once at the glacier we took the short hike to the waterfall and boy is was worth every step...breathtaking. Then we hiked back and were met by a bear eating roots and just leisurely walking by . Great camera shots! Then on to the Salmon Bake...mmmmm..mmmmm...mmmmm. Music..fresh air..waterfalls..and the best grilled salmon I’ve had ...all you want . We will always remember our one of a kind experience on this excursion. Thank you !

When we arrived at the place of departure, there was a little confusion. We joined another tour and things began to settle a little. The Mendenhall Glacier is really something to see. The Salmon Bake is really good and very organized. The buses actually took us back to our ship.

A Beautiful Day
August 27, 2019
This was a nice overview of the city of Juneau. The tour helped us plan the free time we had in the city before the ship left. The glacier was amazing and the park rangers were very helpful in understanding what we were looking at. I wish we had more time to walk out to the glacier but we had perfect weather for pictures. The salmon bake was very good. Remember to walk back to the waterfall area and take some pictures.

Juneau Excursion
August 20, 2019
Thoroughly enjoyed the bus driver (Vinny) and his history and stories of Juneau. The walk into the glacier was easy and paved. the walk into the Nugget Falls was not paved but an easy walk. Had plenty of time to do both walks. The salmon bake was very organized and the food was awesome. Would highly recommend.

We enjoyed our trip to the Glacier and the Salmon Bake. Our tour guide was a little corny, with jokes so bad they were funny. We enjoyed the salmon bake and walking the river walk near where we ate.

Beautiful glacier and water fall.
July 23, 2019
The glacier and water fall were gorgeous. Our bus driver, Vince was a hoot, what a great guy. He is so passionate about Alaska, I loved it! The Salmon bake food was a little better than "no so good" the salmon was very dry and there wasn't enough variety. The chowder was delicious however.

This tour was informative, relaxing, and fun! Our guide/driver was super informative and fun, and the hikes were refreshing and relaxing - we were left to do whatever we wanted to do. We saw bear, porcupine, and spawning salmon. The salmon bake was delicious!! Highly recommend this relaxing tour.

September 17, 2018
Our tour guide was fun and informative. We enjoyed the glacier but felt too rushed and would have liked more time there to wander and explore. The Salmon bake was excellent. Food was delicious, music was good, atmosphere was warm and welcoming, and we loved the relaxed feel. We didn’t feel rushed here and enjoyed being able to relax and take our time. This part of the tour was beyond our expectations. I would definitely do the Salmon bake again!

This was a good trip for someone on their first visit to Alaska. View of glacier and nearby waterfall was from a distance but very good. Time limits prohibited too much hiking or exploring. Saw spawning salmon in a creek/river in the park and some people in our group saw brown bears nearby. Food at the salmon bake was good and entertainment was provided.

On the way to Mendenhall our bus driver drove us to Douglas Island before heading to the Glacier and falls. It was a beautiful day so it was clear and the scenery was lovely. We only were there an hour so we didn't feel we had ample time to walk to the falls. The Salmon bake was delicious and the setting in the woods was very relaxing. We took a walk to the lovely falls on the property as well. That was an added benefit we weren't expecting.

Nice day the first day it hadn't rained all summer. We enjoyed our tour here, bus driver well informed. Mendenhall glacier was a nice sight to see. Wish we would of had longer so we could of walked all the way to it. Salmon bake was good - started to rain at the end of the meal.

Excellent excursion
September 21, 2017
We saw portions of Juneau on the way out to the glacier. The glacier was very impressive to see. Those that wanted could hike a small distance to a waterfall near the glacier. Then a bus ride to the salmon bake which was outside under a canopy. It included a singer. The salmon and the rest was plenty and wonderful. After the bake, we took a short hike to a waterfall before the bus ride back to the cruise ship. Highly recommend.

The Alaskan Experience
September 14, 2017
The trip to the glacier and salmon bake gave us a wonderful feel for Alaska. The beauty of the glacier was evidenced on the trails and also through the Visitors Center full-view window. Exhits at the center, particularly the time lapse, gave us deeper context. The Salmon bake was presented in a rural, woodsy setting with coverings to keep out the rain. We enjoyed the best salmon we've ever eaten, along with an assortment of side dishes. As an added bonus, we listened to live music. On our return bus trip, the driver narrated a tour through downtown Juneau, including the State House.

Glacier great, salmon bake OK
September 01, 2017
The tour to Mendenhall glacier was great. Tour guide was informative as we drove through Juneau to get there, and of course the scene is fantastic. Not enough time to see both the boardwalk and walk down to the waterfall--I wish the tour included a much longer time at the glacier. Salmon bake was OK--not as delicious as the description led us to believe. And yes, you can go pan for gold in the stream from a wagon of dirt that likely has gold flecks or flakes in it, but then what--you can't get it out of the sand to keep it; no equipment! Disappointing.

August 29, 2017
The glacier was impressive to see. Also got to see a small bear checking out the visitor's area being lead by a Park ranger, while keeping visitor's at bay ! Highlight of the day. Saw Salmon streams and evidence of presence of bears. The Salmon babke was so-so. Need to improve quality of food. Had to wait for Salmon to come off the grill while eating sides. I've made a Maple-Balsamic glaze that is much tastier than the sauce provided. The blueberry cake was good.

My boyfriend and I loved this excursion! The food was amazing and the glacier was beautiful. It is a bit of a walk to reach the waterfall near the glacier, so I would be sure to give yourself plenty of time if you want to walk down. My favorite part was that we got to see a bear! I definitely recommend this for the naturist and the foodie!

This was an awesome excursions. We did the 1 mile hike back to the waterfall it was very beautiful and we could not believe how close we were able to get to the waterfall.

Great experience. If you read the instructions on that Shore Excursions supplies, you will have no issue at all. The driver was a wealth of knowledge and gave a lot of great history. The Mendenhall Glacier is a must and the Salmon Bake was very good. Live music, toast marshmallows over an open fire. It was a great excursion. Definitely worth the money
