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.

We were very disappointed and up set to be handed off by our tour company to another that had no idea what was going on. They started taking us on a driving tour! We were late arriving at the glacier, and then they did not show up to get us until 45 min later in the rain not cool! They weren't aware they were to take us all to the salmon bake. Salmon bake was the most wonderful on a creek with picnic tables,hot claim chowder delicious, twinkle lights, red gingham, tablecloths, fire sing along, fantastic food oh the blueberry cake yum, and the people were so nice and accommodating everyone had an amazing time once we got to salmon bake. We didn't want to leave but had to because we had been so late to arrive. Very sad the bake was a highlight! Their shuttle was right on time took us back to ship on time . I give the salmon bake an excellent rating so much fun.👍🏻 😂 the tour company who handed us off in Juno fail.👎

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.

Driver was really nice. Mendenhall Glacier was a must see but lots of people at the area. Salmon bake was good.
