We very much enjoyed this combination and the quality of this excursion. The bus to Mendenhall Glacier was comfortable and the driver Fred shared enjoyable narrations and stories. Once at the Glacier, we could stay as long as desired and take one of the regularly scheduled buses back. The trolley tour was very informative and well done. The Tram ride and views from the visitor center at top of Mt. Roberts were great. At the restaurant, it was barely busy we visited in mid-May, our waitress was awesome and the salmon lunch was absolutely perfect. Tip: Order the hot chocolate!

This was a great tour! Caught city tour bus in plaza right off cruise ship, then switch buses and go to glacier. Could spend as much time as we wanted there with return shuttles every 30 minutes. Then ride the cool Mt. Roberts tram and lunch at ?Timberline restaurant. It was the best meal we had off the ship. Salmon was delicious! Tour was worth the money.
