You can also click the orange tab in lower-left corner of your screen to start the waiver process.
Please share this with everyone else in your group and make sure all adults have signed prior to the tour. Parents may sign for any minor children. If you have not signed the waiver when you arrive, not to worry, you can sign it when you arrive for your tour. However, doing it now means you get more time exploring with your guide! No need to bring a printed copy of this waiver. We have it all stored electronically!?
Finding your tour
Because this is a private tour, we can be more flexible in where we pick you up. If you are on a cruise ship, the location we pick you up is near the Mt. Roberts Tram Station bus pull through lot.
Your pickup bus won’t arrive until close to your start time. Typically 5 minutes early. If you are looking and the start time is more than 5 minutes away, don’t be alarmed if you do not see anyone. Always feel free to call/text if you have any questions or concerns (907-202-8889).

What to bring
Rain gear and footwear
We take safety seriously and safety demands change based on activity. Nugget Falls and Trail of Time covers close to 4 miles by foot with a 100 feet of elevation gain and loss.
There are restrooms at the Mendenhall Glacier Visitors Center, but we encourage using the toilet before you board the bus so there is more time on the trail. Because this is a private tour, we are flexible how we proceed with activities. We encourage your group to let your guide know your thoughts and concerns so they may accommodate them.
Black bears frequent the trails, especially during the salmon run from July through September. Our guides are trained to understand bear movements and act in an emergency situation. Should an emergency arise, our guides are trained in first aid.?
