Customer Reviews

“I will always remember the Glacier Hike, when we went up the glacier and looked at the ice wall. The glacier was definitely the highlight of the tour...It was a very good trip. Probably the best trip I‘ve ever taken. It was my first solo trip, so it was way different for me, but it was a lot of fun and I am excited to come back.”
