Great tour. Driver, Jay, was so funny - he gave a brilliant commentary about Juneau plus lots of humour - it made the tour even better!!! We toured the town, then were dropped out at the glacier to browse through the visitor centre or do a hike, with the opportunity to return via regular shuttles back to town - so you could stay for the hour, or longer if you wished. It included the tickets up the gondola, which was amazing - the views were spectacular. The included lunch was delicious and they catered brilliantly for my gluten allergy. A great value tour that provided all we were expecting and more.

This shore excursion is ideal for those wanting a trip that is not too strenuous but informative at the same time and was quite a bit cheaper thanthe shore excursions offered by the ship. The tour reps were at the pickup place as indicated and our driver Jai was friendly, funny and gave us a great informative tour around the town and then out to the Glacier where we had plenty of time to walk up to the visitor Centre, see the short movie and would have had time to do one of the walks if we wished . Our. trip on the way back was also very informative and after being dropped off in town we rode the Gondola up to the restaurant. We took the opportunity to see the short movie on the local Indian Tribe from the area and then enjoyed the meal. The choice was 2 course with a choice of Reindeer Stew or Salmon and both were very nice. We could have stayed up at the restaurant, visited the gift shop and seen the resident Raptor and we also had plenty of time to shop in the town of Juneau itself. The view from the restaurant is great and we were lucky enough to have a lovely clear view right up the canal.
I'd highly recommend this tour, it suited us perfectly and we were more than happy with our day ashore.

The city was enjoyable and our guide was so informative on the history. He pointed out dozens of bald eagles for us, saw about ten at one time sitting on sand bars and on the light poles on bridge crossing to Douglas Island and back. The glacier was great, we didn't walk to the water fall but the view from the visitor center is awesome. So much info there. We were entertained by the gondola operator with a native song on the trip up Mt. Roberts and the salmon lunch was delicious. Views from the top are wonderful and we saw eagles sitting in the trees on the way down. Great tour choice.
