Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    My favorite part of the experience was Josh's knowledge of the area and his narrative explaining it all.

    Amazing tour!! Matthew did a great job and took us to some of the most beautiful locations. It’s the perfect tour to take in your first couple days of arriving to Anchorage. Packed with information!!

    Outstanding experience looking at glaciers in Prince William Sound. Was impressed on all accounts: the boat, the captain, crew, lunch, etc…. Especially impressed that Phillips Cruise Lines contracts with the forest service for a forest ranger on board with extra narration. Loni was our ranger and she did a fabulous job. We saw a lot of wildlife and even saw a whale on the way back to Whittier.

    Lori was awesome and very informative about the glacier and the local natives. We were able to see beautiful sights the whole time and she took pictures for us.

    Our tour guide is Carl the owner. He is a great photographer and knowledgeable guide. We visited two locations to get the chance to catch both the magnificent starry sky and the amazing aurora borealis. We had multiple choice of hot drinks and snacks onboard which only makes the trip more enjoyable and romantic. Skip cold Fairbanks and stay in the warm Anchorage. This tour won’t let you down.

    Stopped by for an impromptu walk along the Matanuska Glacier. Sunny skies. It was a guided tour, (that’s all they allow now) for a couple hours. Drive down the gravel road into the valley to reach the check-in, then another couple miles to where you start the tour. The guide was great, patient, had a lot of good info without talking continuously. Allowed time to just look around, take pictures, etc. They provided everything we needed, sticks, hard hat. Proper footwear is really important. Wandering around the glacier for a couple of hours was a blast, so much better than a just a stop and look. The guide took really good care of us, making sure we were safe, steady, etc. Everyone was really nice and helpful.
    Up near the top of our list of favorite excursions during our vacation. (side notes – the drive from Glennallen to the Glacier on a sunny morning was grand, the nearby restaurant recommended by our guide was a delight. )

    Our guide provided a lot of interesting information about the earthquakes that hit Alaska and showed us around the area cumulating with an outstanding view of Anchorage after the sunset.

    Had a great experience with this tour! I am a solo traveler and felt safe and comfortable the whole time. It was a perfect day trip with beautiful scenery! We stopped in Palmer to grab a deli lunch and take with us, stopped at the Matanuska gift shop on the way in to get souvenirs and postcards, and stopped a few other places on the road to take pictures. Our driver was very knowledgeable and had great communication before and during the trip. The glacier tour provides spikes and helmet, but I would recommend taking your own trekking poles if you don't have the best balance.

    An absolute amazing time. Brittany was exceptionally knowledgeable and passionate about Alaska. She goes out of her way to make the trip personal to your desires and energy level. She also is a wealth of knowledge of other parts of Alaska and must see/do sights. My suggestion is to book a trip early in your stay with Brittany and then do multiple tours with her!

    BEST EXPERIENCE EVER!! We did the 2 hour grand tour and it was so worth it. Our pilot Ben was amazing and really customized the flight to what our interests were! We are more than happy with the experience and can’t wait to come back again! Alaska is incredible

    This experience was simply superb! The personal attention we received from both Liz and Matthew made us feel like we were part of the family. As dog lovers, we considered a number of places to visit, but chose this one because it looked and sounded more intimate. It was fantastic!

    It was so great to experience thousands of year old glacier up close and personal! The tour guide Matt was awesome - so careful and at the same time making sure we enjoy every aspect of the glacier. Walking around can be tricky as the terrain is so deceiving - looks flat but your feet can sink in. Amazing view of the surrounding Chugach mountain range
