We waited for a clear day and were rewarded by a wonderful view of Juneau, Gastineau Channel and the cruise ships. Eagles flew by it was marvelous to sit in the lounge with a drink and take it all in. There is a trail to the top but one must climb up 3,000 feet or so to get to the... More

This tram ride was part of our excursion package. We've ridden trams like this before in St. Thomas and other places and there really wasn't anything special about it. It was nice to see a "birdseye" view of the city of Juneau. Once you got to the top you could shop for the usual tourist type merchandise, go to the... More

The view was amazing and learned alittle history along the way from our tram operator. It was a bit pricey (you could actually hike up to Mt Roberts) but it was fun.

The tramway was extremely fun! We hiked the way up, all bought drinks at the restaurant (glaceritas!) so that we could get the tram down for free (just spend $10 at the restaurant or gift shop and keep your receipt). It was intermittently foggy, but it was still beautiful. They do stuff you in there like sardines though, so just... More

It's VERY expensive to ride - $32 p/p and is basically just a view from the mountain. There is a trail for hikers. Not sure what I'd really expected but for the price I'd skip it.

Well worth the trip up for the iconic view of Juneau. Yes, its touristy, but you won't get the view from anywhere else. Neat to look down on the cruise ships. I'm a photographer, so it was a no-brainer for me to go up. Didn't do the trails, as didnt have a great deal of time. But they looked good...kind... More

The trip is easy and gets you to the trails around Mt Roberts. There is a visitors center and a rescued eagle. The trail to the top of the mount is really great.

We thought this would be a nice thing to do while in Juneau, the only nice thing about this is the view. The trails was not what we expected. There was not much up there except a high priced restaurant with average food.

Local Native American tour guide was very funny in his stories of past and present in Juneau. The views were spectacular. We were lucky with the weather so could see very clearly. A must if you visit Jneau...

When in Juneau, make it a point to ride the tramway to the top of Mt. Roberts. The conductor of the tram gave a bit of history and information about the tram and Mt. Roberts as we made our way up the side of the mountain. The top of the mountain provides a great view of the city, the port,... More
