We would have loved to have taken this tour of a lifetime and were very excited to see there was a company advertising ADA compliance. That changed when I tried to book the tour. First the tour company said service dogs were not allowed per FAA, then the company emailed that

Response from SarahL8823, Manager at Juneau Shore Excursion: Helicopter Tour and Guided Icefield Walk
Responded 13 Feb 2020
We appreciate feedback and TripAdvisor reviews, thank you for taking the time. We were very accommodating to your concerns and made the necessary and suggested changes on our website. There were a few notes that were untrue in the review: 1. The FAA was never mentioned, this is a company policy and I was very clear on that. 2. You also stated that it took a long time to respond and you stated it was because we were changing our policy. Not correct. Your email was sent Feb 11th @ 3:59am (Alaska Time) and I responded on Feb 12th @ 1:58pm (Alaska Time). We accommodate wheelchair guests utilizing our ADA lift. These guests are seated behind the pilot who have control over the exit door. We have made changes on our website and are not advertising ADA complaint. We changed our verbiage to accommodate ADA lift assistance only. We also provide information regarding service animals on our FAQ page.

Highly recommend this helicopter tour. We didn't get a lot of time on the glacier but the pilot made up for it with drive bys to other glaziers.

We had a great time. The pilot was great and narrated the flight to and from Herbert glacier. Much cheaper than than the same tour through the cruise line. No worries about returning back to the cruise ship on time.

This is an experience I will always remember for a lifetime. Flying above the glaciers then landing on the glaciers and drinking glacial water. The pilot was very nice and offered to take pictures. Don't forget your camera. You will be able to capture such beautiful pictures.

To be honest, I was not expecting much. I was blown away though. Our Help pilot, Casey, was excellent. He took care of us and his flying was professional and smooth. We landed on a glacier and he stayed there with us and let us look around. We got to taste glacier water,
