The glacier excursions are so pricey....we want to do one, but not sure whether to do one that you can actually walk on a glacier or just do the fly-over? Would like some comments on this? What companies did you go with?
If you do go with a tour be sure to read the T&C closely and have the emails/receipts with you on the cruise. We had to call 24 hrs in advance to confirm which meant calling from one port before the tour port.

20 years ago we had Johnny Cash, Bob Hope and Steve Jobs. Now we have no Cash, no Hope and no Jobs. Please don't let Kevin Bacon die.
We did the Taku Lodge floatplane trip and loved it. We flew over several glaciers and landed at the lodge right in front of one of Alaska's few ascending glaciers. They fed us a wonderful meal and we got to walk the trails in the rainforest. It was unworldly looking, like something from a movie. The black bears are also plentiful at the lodge.
The owners and the staff were fantastic. One of our best experiences while in Alaska. Taking off and landing on the water is just way cool too!
it took everything I had to click that button and reserve the extended glacier trek in Juneau for 600.00 pp. EVERYTHING I HAD! But, after doing it, I would click that button without hesitation! OMG - it was so frickin awesome! You just have to do it - you will NOT regret it!!!!!
