“Bit of a rip off”
Reviewed July 12, 2012

Hardly worth the effort for the cost. I suppose if you don't do anything else then this is ok but it's not very high.

“not worth the time”
Reviewed July 10, 2012

The day we went was drizzly so we couldn't see anything at the top. Even if we could, there is only a gift shop and small restaurant there with nothing else to do unless you have time to hike. It wasn't worth the $20 per person ticket and that was a discount price!

“A view from the top!”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

The one good thing about the price of this ride is that you can go up and down all day. This is great since there is fog in the mornings sometimes and the view will not be as good. I think it was $28.00 per person (adults).

There was some snow on the trails, but not enough to be a bother. Great views from the top!


We noticed a few people in wheel chairs and chairs can make it up and down, but the rest is not very wheel chair friendly.

“You're in Juneau already, getting on the Tram is easy!”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

The tramway is both a good value and a great way to really see what Juneau and Douglas look like. The 1800 foot climb may leave you a bit off balance, but take one of the hikes around to get awesome photos and see what the tops of all the buildings and cruise ships look like, you'd be amazed how many pools and tennis courts fit on those boats!

Pay a visit to Lady Baltimore (a rescue eagle) and donate some money to her care, and stop by the theater for the film!

The ticked gets you rides all day, so take a couple trips if you want.

“Qualtiy ride and information”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

Restaurant isn't the best - but the ride to the top is worth it, plus the ability to easily get higher up in the mountain.
