Our day in Juneau was rainy, but you can't assume that's the case at the top of Mt. Roberts. We took the tram and found there were periods when the clouds opened up and you could see a bird's eye view of the city. The ride itself was surprisingly smooth and the guide riding the car explained what we were... More

Impressive views from top.Guide very good with plenty of interesting facts on area. Saw and eagle in flight. Totem carving was good. A great place to photograph from with cruise ships below and watching planes take off and land.

I'm afraid of heights so I was a little worried about going up to the top in the tram but it was fine. I just didn't look down for very long. We went on a clear day and the view was spectacular! It's a great way to take a good picture of your cruise ship too. It's a short ride... More

George our tram guide was so informative and clear. He also made the ride fun. If it wasn't for George our family would of not had such a laugh.

We booked a combination excursion through our cruise line. Our first stop was Mendenhall Glacier and following that we were dropped off at the Tramway. We were given our tram ticket and we were able to take as much time as we wanted to ride to the top and look around. I thought the views we had were wonderful. There... More

The tramway was a smooth ride but unfortunately we didn't have a great day for our visit. The fog and clouds did part for some photos and the bird of prey exhibition was cool. Shopping at the too was ok as well. The thing I loved the most was the air quality, fresh.

Fun hike up Mount Roberts on a well maintained trail. It might have taken us 90 minutes with several stops to view scenery. Wonderful views from the top of the area surrounding Juneau. We bought a trinket in the gift shop and got a complementary ride down on the tram.

I thought this was fun, a little expensive but when you're in Juneau, why not? We went on the trails and explored, it was nice to see.

The Mount Roberts Tramway in Juneau was one of the attractions I was looking forward to doing before we went on our cruise, but in May, it is not a good time. There was still a good amount of snow around (and it was dirty, so not really enjoyable), and slick which made it hard for me to navigate (bad... More
