I'm very pleased and extremely happy I took the hour tour. Our pilot was very knowable of the area and thus a great tour guide explaining the area we were flying over. The skies were a little rough but he was able to keep the plane quite smooth and that was a good thing. Walking into the office we were... More

My friends and I booked last minute and they were able to accommodate us. Our pilot, Akshay, was so knowledgeable about the area and how it formed. We did the volcanic tour and now want to go back for the icefields one too. Loved every minute of it!!

I went for a spin with two friends and Akshay as the pilot and, boy, was it exhilarating! The mountains were spectacular, and Akshay kept up a running commentary that was as informative as it was humorous. He did some daring turns to give us a thrill and a closer look at the mountains and snow. He even gave me... More
