We didn't book this excursion through our cruise line beforehand as we wanted to see what other options were available to us at port. The price is a bit steep, $32 pp, but you can ride the tram as often as you wish and enjoy the beauty of riding along the mountainside while taking in spectacular views of the Gastineau... More

The tramway was a great ride to the top of Mount Roberts. We had breathtaking views of all of Juneau. While up on top I finally got a picture of our cruise ship.

I visited in August and the cloud cover was very low. Only take the tram if there is good visibility.

Best part is the view - the gift shop is OK but the help at the coffee bar was rude. The hiking trail is OK as is the presentation in the theater.

The main viewing area was closed due to a Function. No Cafe facilities to enjoy the view. Eagle and walking Trials would have been good if we had more time.

We visited the Mount Roberts Tramway while on an Alaskan Cruise. It was very convenient and only a few minute walk from the cruise ship, however I don't feel like the price was a value for what you got. The tram ride was neat, smooth, and only took a couple minutes to the top. Great views, the staff was friendly.... More

Took the tramway to to top of the mountain. the ride was only a few minutes and if you keep your eyes open you can see some eagles resting on top of some of the trees. There isn't a lot to to up there but it is an amazing view to see the town and all the cruise ships that... More

Arriving into Juneau either by water or air, a quick scan of the town will identify an obvious must do while you're here. Easy access from the cruise ship terminals with minimal waiting time to get aboard for the steep ascent, Mt Roberts Tramway is a short but enjoyable ride up through rainforests to the Mountain House offering stunning views...
