Default Denali flightseeing tours?

Several questions for anyone who has been to Denali and taken a flightseeing
tour:

1. Is it worth $250 per person to fly over the top of Mt McKinley?

2. Holland America offers a tour called :fixed wing flightseeing - round the
mountain"
Has anyone taken this tour? was it worth it , did you like it?

3. Talkeetna Aero offers a tour called "Mt McKinley Summit Tour".
Same questions, any one taken it, how was it?

Thank you
John

There is no reason to book with the cruise line, book direct. If you care to?? see if you can pick up a toursaver book and use a 2 for 1 coupon, then resell it if you are going early or buy a used one if going later. My clear preference is a summit flight, over the top, the only company that does them that I know of is Talkeetna Aero. I have done several flights out of there including the ski planes. Misty Fjords is also very scenic, and it may also depend on your flying experience??? Especially if you haven't been in a float plane? But if you get a coupon, then maybe you can do both?

I have also done the Summit Flt with Talkeetna Aero, which is the only way we have seen Mt McKinley in our 4+ weeks in Alaska so far. We had toursaver coupon and saved over $185 on this flt alone.
