This is a must-do when in Juneau. The tram takes you up to top of Mount Roberts. There are hiking trails, restaurant, and the views cannot be beat. We had Aaron as our guide and he was great. Saw Bald Eagles flying around.

Simple, easy and fast. The first port of call on in our Alaskan Cruise was Juneau. Having been at sea level for the last two days, we decided that a view from high about the city would be a great way to start. Without an advance reservation, we simply walked from our ship to the base of the Tramway. It... More

We had a gorgeous sunny day for this excursion. We bought tickets at the last minute around lunch time. We only waited a few minutes to get on the tram, which they pack pretty tight. It's an expensive and short ride up but once you get up there the views are awesome. We hiked to the Cross but there are... More

Not much to it. Nice view of Juneau but it's gotten really expensive and is sort of the only game in town so make sure you don't go unless its clear and not cloudy or you won't see anything. No need to book ahead. You can walk right over. That's after you get off your ship you know. Get it?

Compared to other aerial cable cars in western North America, the USD 36.00 price was rather steep. You don't go all that high. Other similar attractions elsewhere will get you higher with better views for a superior price-per-vertical-foot ratio.

The tram has great views but the trip is really for the mountain. There are trails at the top. We went all over the mountain, it was very enjoyable. There is a movie available and a gift store.

The tramway is a very good place to see an unsurpassed view of the Juneau area. It is hard to believe they had to carry everything up there by hand to build this tramway on the side of this steep mountain side. There is a restaurant up there as well as nature trails, exhibits and a gift shop. This is... More

Just do it for the views! Wow what an awesome view you will have while in the tram car and at the top of Mt. Roberts. Cool stuff to see at the top.

$35 for a 2 minute tram ride. The view from the top was good. It would have been nice if they let you know that for $35 you needed to have enough time to walk some trails, see a show, film and the nature center. Maybe our fault for not doing enough research ahead. If you go have plenty of... More

The tramway was a quick ride to the top of Mt Roberts. We walked the trail once we got up there - there are amazing views of Juneau and the surrounding area. We asked at the ticket desk if we should make reservations for dinner at the restaurant at the top. Fortunately he said it wasn't really worth it. We... More
