It was cold and rainy, a little windy, the day we went so there weren't as many people in the tram. It felt safe and has excellent employees on board that made you feel welcome and well taken care of.. We paid $119 for 3 people for unlimited rides all day. Had a delicious lunch there. Had a table right... More

The tram is cool, don't get me wrong. However, to me it was not worth 33 dollars for the short ride up and down. You are crushed in with so many people you can't turn around to take pictures and the ride only lasts about 4 minutes each way, if even. The food was only so so at the restaurant... More

From a local to a tourist-I recommend going up if you have clear weather. I've read a few negative comments, most complain about the weather; fog, clouds, rain. Sorry we can't control the weather. So if you get a clear day in Juneau- spend the money and GO UP!! Mt Roberts Tram is a wonderful way to see Juneau-from on... More

Had a great time up at the top of Mt Roberts. The tram was crowded but I haven't been on one that wasn't. We had a beautiful clear day and the view was spectacular. Did a little hiking, visited the raptor center and saw an amazing bald eagle. Nice afternoon. Would recommend when it's clear.

The Mount Roberts Tramway is the only aerial tramway in Southeast Alaska. The cars rise 1800 feet in 6 minutes from the cruise ship dock in downtown Juneau through the rain forest up to the Mountain House. In good weather, the views from the top are spectacular. At the summit you'll find the Juneau Raptor Center, many hiking trails, the... More

The cost of this tram is ridiculous relative to the experience. There is a nice view at the top but I would not consider it noteworthy compared to the views we saw elsewhere in Alaska. If seeing your cruise ship from up high gets you excited, then you may appreciate the view more than we did. Luckily, we hiked up... More

A comfortable ride with a spectacular view. The tram operator gives an informative discussion of topics about the area.

Basic tram service to the top of Mount Roberts. Nice views, but crowded shoulder to shoulder with other tourists without air conditioning (80+ degrees in July). Short ride to the top made the ride tolerable, but relatively expensive ($100 for 3 people). The walk down the mountain made the day trip memorable! Well marked pathway, but it was wet and... More

Locals told us not to miss this excursion and they were right. We had lovely weather after the fog cleared and even the foggy trip up the mountain side was eerily enchanting. We thoroughly enjoyed the well kept trails at the top, even if we only went part way to the peak.

We took the tramway up to the top of Mount Roberts while stopping in Juneau for day. Purchase your tickets from the cruise ship (if that's how you are travelling) for a discounted price. It has a quick ride up and provided great views. Lots of walking trails once at the top. Glad we did it once to get great... More
