What an experience. Definitely one off the bucket list. Felt totally safe and we got to see glaciers and lakes totally inaccessible any other way.

An exceptional value compared to the price of every other tour. The views were seriously breathtaking and priceless from the moment you depart, until the time you land. Honestly, the highlight of my trip.
