Well worth the time for the views and photo opportunities, for those with no fear of heights. The view at the top offers a panoramic view of the channel, Douglas Island and downtown Juneau.

What a fantastic way to see Juneau, the views are stunning as you travel up and down Mount Roberts. Was lucky enough to see The Alaska String Band in the theatre, that was such a treat. If you are ever visiting Juneau, the tramway is a must.

Delightful! The tram ride is... well, a tram ride. But at the top we experienced the beauty that Alaska promised as we walked a short trail around Mt. Roberts. Even more memorable was the surprise: a complimentary musical journey through Alaska history with the Alaska String Band. They are a very talented family of musicians playing "on the fiddle and...

I thought it was a little expensive for the price. $30 pp. It was a nice ride and we got to see a bald eagle that had been hurt. I believe it is always there. Film about Indians was good. Not a whole lot more at the top but a good view. If you are watching your pennies, I would... More

The Tramway in Juneau is a "must do" when in Juneau. The views at the top are fantastic and there are hiking trails and lots of beautiful scenery.

We purchased tickets to ride the tramway up to the Mt. Roberts. The view was spectacular! It was a little pricey but once you arrive at the top, you can spend as much time as you'd like hiking and viewing the fabulous view. There are several trails that you can explore. While we were there, we had lunch at the... More

This is a quick and easy spot to view the area. I think it is over priced but they have you captive..once at the top you do see forever and it is lovely. There are some nice trails to walk and you able to hike all the way back down the mountain if you are so inclined. If you plan... More

Great view of the area, plus got to see a real bald eagle - up close and personal - at the top. It was in a rehabilitation setting. Also had a nice meal at the top of the mountain.

Originally, out plan for Juneau was to take the Blue Bus to Mendenhall Glacier and walk some of the trails. When we arrived, we decided we'd just walk around town for a while and maybe get some lunch. I caught a cold (yep, 90 degrees in Alaska and I catch a cold) so I wanted to find a drug store... More

Juneau Tramway is worth a ride if you don't mind the price tag. I was lucky to be living in Juneau at the time I rode it, and went on "locals day." So, I paid a fraction of the price. The only problem was the restaurant at the top was closed, and I was looking forward to sitting, enjoying a... More
