Great tour company! Narrated bus tour first through the city, and then out to the glacier. Driver was fun and knowledgeable about Juneau and the glacier. We were given plenty of time to visit the glacier and visitor center. Communications were great about getting back on the bus, and got back to the cruise dock in plenty of time to mill about town and then to get back on the boat. A taxi or Uber one way is over $40, so you can’t beat the value. Highly recommend.

I had booked this shuttle after reading reviews from Trip Adviser. Pick up was simple, our driver, Rye, was very friendly and informative on the drive out to the Glacier, sharing lots of information about Juneau and the Glacier. Return pick up was hassle free - exactly when it was due! I don't ever book excursions when on a ship because they are much more expensive than sorting out your own. Here we got off our ship walked 100m to the Mt Roberts Tramway and the shuttle was there. Simple and I would recommend.

We arrived on a cruise ship and this was our second time to Juneau. We knew best way was to grab one of the local shuttles as opposed to the cruise ship excursion. Went to building (really small shack) on the dock and the attendent was very helpful. First he braced us for the sticker shock of the price increase to $49. He explained the changes in park service fees and local fees.

Bus arrived just before half hour and departed on half hour. Rye our driver guide was great. He was also our return driver and we were the on,y passenger. Allowed him to be very engaging.

The drop off location at Mendenhall and at docks is convenient and a great option since you can go to and leave glacier on your schedule.

Once you get to the glacier is amazing. Getter there and getting back is a different story though. After being the 5th person to “check in” with the shuttle guide we waited for 30 minutes for the bus to arrive, 10 minutes prior we were asked to volunteer to start a second line as it was getting crowded and that there was a second bus coming at the same time. After the initial 30 minutes wait both buses showed up, however, the first line (we were 5th in line before volunteering) grew and grew with new people showing up. Instead of following what they originally said they decided to fill BOTH busses with the first line. As a result we were stuck waiting another 30 minutes for the next busses to arrive. After they arrived the first line emptied and filled up both buses. The folks in line with us were furious. After the “guides” realized how bad they messed up we were instructed that we could stand up for the 25 minute ride there in the middle of the isle. As we had already wasted over an hour of the 6 hours we were there we decided to stand.

I don’t even want to get into the crap shoot that was the ride home, 100+ person line 1+ waiting etc…etc…

Trip was good to the park, you need to be on the lookout on your way back since buses run every 30 minutes back and they fill way too fast

With the luck of the draw, we were fortunate enough to have Archie drive us out to Mendenhall Glacier. After several days of group tours, Juneau was to be our "do-it- yourself" experience. However, transportation was needed to reach the Glacier. We enjoyed the commentary, the MANY eagles, the bear sightings and Archie's delightful personality. Our three-generation family walked, at varying speeds, to the Glacier to take our normal excessive photos. We headed back by way of the Mendenhall Glacier Visitor Center for a tour of the animal exhibits and the souvenir shop for our special remembrance of Alaska. Fortunately, we had Archie on the return trip to the port for another taste of Alaskan hospitality AND to hear him say..."Get 'er done" one last time.

My main reason for going on this cruise...to see a glacier and waterfall...I wasn’t disappointed. Also got to see Salmon who were spawning.
The weather was perfect!
I unfortunately had a boot on my foot due to an injury, so the walk took me a little longer. People were very polite about going around me on the narrow path...some commenting “you are brave”....my response...”or crazy” 😉
Everything was smooth from getting on the shuttle to returning to ship...in time to get my king crab legs!

The bus driver told us some interesting snippets of info but really it was just transport. If there are more than 2 of you rather get a taxi. Also, if you would like to go to other sights such as the glacier rain forest a taxi can take you there from the glacier rather than returning to town first.

Amazing local company- shuttle ran every 30mins so you can stay as long or short time at the Glacier park. Drivers had great tips on finding wildlife and narrated local history on the way.

We took the shuttle bus from the pier. It's a short bus ride to the Glacier terminal. Took an easy hike (30 minutes) from the terminal to the glacier and the fall. Took tons of amazing pictures and videos. Then hiked back to terminal. It's was not difficult at all. Inexpensive DIY excursion; good for family with kids.
