Travel by climate-controlled van, and as you see the landmarks of Juneau, hear about the area’s 10,000 years of history, including the Haida-Tlingit tribe, the role of Russian, European and American influences, and the gold rush.

Pass over the Gastineau Channel for beautiful panoramas of Juneau, and arrive at Juneau’s natural treasure, the Mendenhall Glacier, one of 38 glaciers flowing from the massive 1,500-square-mile Juneau Ice field. You have a number of options to explore this glacier wonder. Inside the visitor center, browse through the interactive geological exhibits and enjoy an elevated view of the glacier.

It was drizzling by the time we got on the bus. Steve ( driver/guide) was very nice and told us history of places we were passing. It was sad that we could not get closer to the glacier. Even Nugget fall was nice, I would like to see the glacier close.
This tour was advertised as a 9 person...

This tour was advertised as a 9 person maximum tour and there were approximately 40 of us crammed in the bus that drove up to the glacier. Driving through the city wasn't of much interest and the most interesting part was the ranger's video at the Visitors' Centre at the glacier. I was very disappointed in this tour as it was not as represented at all.
