The vastness and dynamic energy happening in a Glacier is awesome. Chris our guide was knowledgeable and constantly checked the welfare of guests in his charge. He provided a safe up close experience of the Glacier. The red bus tours and folks visiting on their own likely weren’t as safe or given an experience instead of just a site seeing tour. I highly recommend Rockaboo Mountain tours.

C'était vraiment sympa cette journée, j'ai eu la chance de pas avoir trop de vent. On a eu beau temps. J'ai eu le guide pour moi toute seule. Le guide est vraiment sympa et marrant. La balade sur le glacier est vraiment impressionnant. Le rappel était vraiment top. Je vous le recommande.
