We enjoyed the view of Juneau from the top of Mount Roberts, the weather was great so that we could see for miles! No complaints about the price especially for what can be experienced at the top, the view, the trail hike (if you want), and the beautiful scenery. I took a lot of pictures and will enjoy them for...

Yeah it's overpriced, but you gotta check it out if you're in Juneau. Alpine trail loop is easy with great views. Go in the evening to avoid the cruise ship crowds. Nature center has nice items for purchase. The movie is supposedly award-winning - it was nice but not sure what award it won.

Leaving straight from the cruise terminal, this tramway goes to the Visitor Center where there was an excellent film about the region and great views. There was a wonderful hiking trail that went into alpine regions where we could see wildflowers and snow and even greater views. A breathtaking experience!

We had a very short stay in Juneau, and it was jammed packed with excursions, but I'm glad that we decided to hop on the Tramway and see what was at the top of the mountain. My only regret is that we didn't have more time to explore at the top, but we did have time to check out the... More

This was our second time in Juneau and our second time on the Tramway. This time it was a brighter day and we could see a ways but of course, it was a bit rainy, after all it is Southeast Alaska. The restaurant was above average quality and reasonably priced. Nice gift shops, and eagle was amazing. Saw many eagles... More

I hate to be negative but it's a really short and fast trip up and down AND it's a little expensive for what it is AND - I'm going to sound like a huge snot - but I think the hosts on the tram should SHOOSH. We just wanted to take a peaceful ride together and take photos and talk... More

The tram get you to the 1,800 foot level on Mount Roberts and the view of Juneau harbor is fantastic. It is a bit pricey at $32 each person and we only had an hour to spend on it but worth it for the vista. The trails behind the tram terminal are interesting. You can take them back down to... More

very convenient to downtown and cruise piers. Excellent views of the harbor and surrounding mountains, downtown Juneau and cruise ships in harbor. Easy to walk to while in shopping district. Don't forget your camera, sunglasses and your jacket.
