Easy way to see the glacier without spending the money of an excursion. It is exactly what it says it is. No thrills, just a bus ride done and back, leaving every 30 minutes. They do give a narrations on the way to and from. I definitely would recommend!

We were only one on bus so that was good , made it more personal. Unfortunately, weather was not cooperating so experience was cold and wet. Basically it was a bus ride to glacier and back. Trip back driver pointed out where she had seen a bear earlier in day at landfill.

The glacier and the hike to Nugget Falls. There was no narration on the bus. Also our ticket said 9 am but the bus didnt start until 10 am. No value for the $$$.
