The "tramway" (it's a cable car) is overpriced but a nice view. Seeing the rescued bald eagle up close was a bonus and there was a local musical performance in the theatre that we enjoyed

While the view may be great (the day we went it was sunnry) I'm not sure it was worth the cost, $33 per person. But the tram sure beats the walk.

A quick side trip. Close to the ship. Beautiful views with access to an easy hike. Takes only a few minutes..worth doing it.

Since I came as a crew member of one of 5 cruise ships I paid only 10$ for the ticket! Tramway departs every 6 minutes both up and down, and the view from the top leaves you speechless! On top you have restaurant,souvenir shop and hiking tracks. If you want to spend some quality time in Juneau this tramway is... More

A nice short ride to discover some breathtaking landscapes over the Gastineau Channel and the city of Juneau. A few shops, some nice food.. generally a good spot to spend some relaxing time and to take some amazing pictures.

I thought it was a bit pricey, but the view was great and if you haven't been up on a tramway before, you'd enjoy it. Watched a good movie at the top.

I feel for a typical guest paying $33 this attraction is over priced, its not like its overly long or personal and the views are limited. As crew I went thankfully for alot cheaper and well I was disappointed. I was offered no map either of the trails available at the summit.

One of the best attractions in Juneau. It's not cheap, but it's worth it. Make sure you go there on a good (not rainy) day, if you can. Not only you will see the beauty of Juneau from the top of the mountain, you will also have an opportunity to hike the trails. The views are spectacular! There is a... More

What's not to like about a tram ride up the side of a huge mountain! The views were stellar, there is a photo op at the top of the mountain for great shots, the windows open for better pictures, but dont drop anything, you will never see it again! Gift shop at the top with actual " Made in Alaska"... More

The a Tramway gives access to Mt Roberts Trails, a good theatre with a short film on the Tlingit peoples, a small interpretative centre and a close up view of a bald eagle in rehabilitation. Easy to fill in 3-4 hours, especially if you dine at the restaurant.
