A spectacular tour if coming here for the first time. However, should i come again i would like to take a boat closer to the glacier. Still a worthwhile trip to see it.

This was an amazing sight, especially in light of global warming. Kayaked this water but didn't get very close to the glacier.

I would recommend having at least 1.5 hrs here. We saw a bear just off the trail on the way to the waterfalls. There were some porcupines and other animals. Awesome views. The glacier was amazing to see up close.

We were on a cruise excursion when we went to Mendenhall. I’m not sure how much the taxi fare is. I’m sorry! Maybe try looking at the taxi fares in Juneau?

There are taxis in Juneau that can take you to the Visitor Center, but I am not sure how much they are. You might be better off financially if you rent a car for the day. Budget has some really great rates in Juneau.

There appeared to be taxi service at the "lift" area upon leaving the ship at Juneau. We had a prebooked tour of the city and glacier.
