An adult ticket for the round trip 5 minute ride is $32.00. The view is great, but they pack you in like cattle so that it is impossible to get to the window and take pictures. Save your money. Nice video at the top.

Tram takes you up from the cruise ship docks, above the tree line (1800) feet into the "alpine". There are miles of trails to hike, And, also at the top of the tram is the visitor center with restaurant, souvenir shop, movie theater showing fantastic short films on native culture and wildlife. The view below of Juneau, Gastineau Channel, the... More

As majestic as the nature is in and around Juneau, its most important building, the flat-roofed, six-story state capitol, is anything but. The same can be said of the city if you’re hoping to find much more than souvenir and jewelry stores within walking distance of the dock. For the non-acrophobic, the Mount Roberts Tramway ($16-$32) is right there. A... More

We were there on a rainy day so the views were not all that great and our long range views were limited by the clouds. We rode both ways and at $31 for the return trip we thought that it was expensive. When we got to the top all we could do is have a bit of a walk around... More

A short ride, up to the mountain, and you get to see everything from above. We loved it. Make sure you go when the area is not cover with clouds. We were there when it was sunny, so it was great.

The tram itself is pretty expensive. If you have the time, hike up the Mt. Roberts trail to the top, buy something in the shop, and get a $5 ticket back down. The view is nice, but not worth paying full price to go both ways.

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.
