A great short excursion
January 04, 2020
This was a good day trip. The guide was very informative. The glacier and amenities are well worth the trip out there. Only reason it not rated 5 is there was not food at the Glacier and we were starving. But the walk around and views were great.

Juneau City and Mendenhall Glacier Tour
October 15, 2019
Our tour guide was fabulous. He was informative and funny. The tour departure point was easy to locate and the pick up after viewing the glacier was on time. We had time for the hike to Nugget Falls and the visitors center, both of which were excellent. We did not get to view the city from Douglas Island as I thought was to be included but that may have been because it was raining and too foggy to see it anyway. I did feel the tour was a little pricey but still am glad we went to Mendenhall Glacier and really enjoyed the drivers commentary.

As with all your excursions the use of small local operators was great.

The Glacier visit was good and we had time to take in the Visitor centre with a short film and then walk out to glacier and waterfall viewpoints. Disappointing that there was no food on sale because tourists have a tendency to feed local wildlife. I feel we should have been informed of this restriction in advance so that we could better plan our visit. But overall it was a good excursion.

A Must See When You Are In Juneau
April 23, 2019
Disembarked Zaandam, tour company rep exactly where tour information said. Logged in, boarded bus, left on time. Bus immaculate, well maintained. Driver drove safely. Way out, guide gave city information, sites to see. Arrived, guide showed where bus will be, pickup time. Gave guidance how to get to Nugget Falls, see Glacier, park's information center. Headed down trail to see the falls, taking pictures along the way. Glacier was beautiful in the distance. Trail in good shape, paved until very end by the falls. At the falls mostly beach rock to walk on, easy to keep your balance. We took so many pictures of the falls and glacier. Water pouring off the cliff, could feel the force of it, the sound was awesome. Spent most of our time here, pictures, different angles, enjoying the moment. Close to departure time, headed back to pickup site. On time, returned to ship, ahead of departure time. Most enjoyable time here. Next time I'm in Juneau I'll be back.

This was a great tour. We opted to use Costco instead of the off-ship identical tour, which was more than double the price from the ship.

Also, we were able to hop on the last bus (not our assigned bus) as my wife got caught up in chasing and shooting (with the camera) a bear ;-) and lost track of time. Highly recommend using Costco instead of the ship's excursion office. You will not miss the ship.

Beautiful Trip--Needed More Time at Glacier Park
July 16, 2018
This tour takes you on a short and informative trip through Juneau City as you make your way to Mendenhall Glacier. After a 30-40 min drive to the glacier, the bus drops off at the parking lot to the visitor center and you are on your own for 90 minutes. This is not enough time to do more than one thing at the park. The tour guide recommended the hike to the glacier fed waterfall --an excellent choice. You will have to hustle to hike to the waterfall and back to meet back up with the bus. If you do the hike, you will not have time to go to the visitor center or do anything else. It would be nice if this tour dropped you off and gave you the opportunity to spend three or four hours at the park--it would have been great to get to see the visitor's center, explore some of the other hikes, or enjoy a picnic at this beautiful spot. Also, please note this tour does not take you near the glacier, it is probably at least 3/4 of a mile across the lake from the visitor's center.

This trip was wonderful. Our day began right on schedule. There was 4 of us on the bus and our tour guide Mike was amazing and entertaining. Mike was a local of native American ancestry. He shared all kinds of information about his family and tribal customs. He talked about how the younger generations are taking renewed interest in keeping their heritage alive. He pointed out historic sites on the city drive and told stories about each. He pointed out eagles and other local birds and and talked about the the salmon fishing and wildlife. We stopped at a beautiful overlook on the other side of Gastineau Channel where we could see the entire city of Juneau the cruise ship and surrounding country side. It was a great photo stop. Mike dropped us off at Mendenhall Glacier which is spectacular. We had plenty of time to see the Glacier and the waterfall but could have used an extra hour to tour the exhibits in the visitor center. This was a very informative and enjoyable trip.

June 19, 2018
It was an adequate excursion with the waterfall at the glacier park being the main attraction. It's a good hike, easy but not leisurely - just enough time to take a few pictures and then you have to head back. We saw some bald eagles in a field but it wasn't a stop. The other scenery during the tour were alright but perhaps limited since it was a shorter excursion.

Walter, our Tlinket tour guide was very knowledgeable-a Native of Juneau-and very nice as well as being passionate about the area and his heritage. I think it was well worth the $ The tour took about half of the port time so there is still plenty of time to walk the port area and visit the Red Dog. At the glacier viewing point/Visitor's Center, there are several trails to walk and get a good view of the glacier. You can even take a longer walk (if you bypass the VC-only so much time at this stop) to a fabulous waterfall. We also stopped by the hatchery to watch "fishermen" snagging salmon. Great tour-lots of local information from Walter!

Glacier Portion Was Great, But....
October 05, 2017
My wife and I booked the tour of Juneau and Mendenhall Glacier thinking we would have a tour of the city with a stop or two. However, the city tour was a drive through downtown with a stop on Douglas Island to view downtown from about 3/4 mile away across the Gastineau Channel. Then is was back on the bus and out to Mendenhall Glacier. I would have liked to see the capital building from the front rather than a quick glance down 4th street from the intersection of Main and 4th. Mendenhall Glacier was very nice with an informative visitors center, a movie, and great views of the glacier. I even saw a mountain goat and porcupine.

This was an stress-free trip to the Mendenhall Glacier for us because the bus met us right at the dock. It was a smaller bus and that was nice. The best part was that our driver/tour person was born and raised in Alaska and specifically in Juneau so he told us SO much and knew so much about the area. As we were taken to the Glacier he added in information about what we were passing. (teehee - he even included the elementary and high school he attended - so much fun!!) It is too far from the port to see the glacier to walk so if you want to see a glacier up close - do this tour. It was well worth the money.

Well it was if you really booked it and didn't dawdle for pictures. We barely made it back to the van in time. We never did get to see the visitors center. Don't get me wrong, the walk was totally worth it, but I wish we had gotten more time to really enjoy the scenery. I felt totally rushed. (about 30 more minutes would have been perfect!) On a side note we got back with only 2 minutes to spare and the line for the ladies bathroom was out the door and about 30 more women deep.

This was bus ride through Juneau to the glacier. The bus driver was very informative and pointed out buildings and suchr while driving. We only had a little over 1 hour at the glacier. The bus driver recommended taking the hike to the falls and back, which we did but there was not much time to dawdle. We walked fast to the falls, took our pictures and walked back just as fast. Alot of tours got there at the same time so it was very crowded in the visitor center area. This was a great tour for us, as it was not expensive and we relaxed on the ride to & from the glacier. Again just wish had more time at glacier. Driver was great. Good excursion for all activity levels as visitor center had a lot of stuff to look at (if you could beat the crowds) so those who don't or can't walk far still have a lot of things to look at.

Our favorite part of this tour was visiting Mendenhall Glacier and adjacent Nugget Falls...really spectacular. Definitely hike down to them both if you are able. It's worth it. The city tour was pretty quick...just a drive by. Not a lot of time. Fortunately had time to wander the streets of downtown by the ship before and after.

Cruise line had a schedule change, so needed to call Shore Excursions while Cruise Line took care of that for their tour sales. But no worries, Shore Excursions already knew of change and were able to shift us to the next day. Smaller vans rather than the big busses other Cruise passengers took meant better parking, more time to explore at stops and felt more personal Great guide. Would choose Shore Excursions again.

He presented much with a good sense of humor. The only draw back was the storm that blew through SE Alaska that day, and viewing the Mendenhall Glacier was not a clear as preferred. AND a mama bear and her cubs prevented us from going up to the interpretive center. Not the guides fault certainly, but is was kind of fun watching the bear family...from a distance.

Affordable
August 24, 2016
You're basically paying for a 20 minute ride from the ship to the glacier and the entry fee into the park. There are a few photo opportunities at the glacier and a visitor center with a short history video of the area but other than that there isn't much to it. Our time in Juneau was very short but that is on the cruise-line not the excursion company. If you have plenty of time this is worth the trip but if you are in a position of having to get back on the ship in a few short hours you may want to opt out and spend your time and money walking around the town.. We were so pressed for time after the excursion we had to ask to be dropped off in front of the Red Dawg Saloon just to have enough time to poke our head in before power walking back to the ship.

Representative was at the meeting area, was clearly visible, and advised us when bus would arrive and where it would be parking.

Great Tour of Juneau and the Nearby Glacier
August 10, 2015
The Juneau part of the trip is fun enough in that you get a quick overview ride around the city with enough time after the bus tour to prowl around the gift shops some. The more spectacular part, though, is the ride out to the Mendenhall Glacier. You can see plenty from the Visitor Center area if you want to spent more time there with the film, exhibits, etc. However, if you're up for a brisk walk, hike (flat ground) out to the waterfall although it will take you most of the 40 min. alloted during the stop there to get out to the falls and back (if you don't mind getting your lower legs wet you can also walk out into the water a bit for an even more spectacular view of the falls but if that's your goal head straight for the trail and don't even go in the Visitor Center so you'll have time to get back). Our driver was very conscientious, though, about accounting for everyone and not leaving until we were all back on the bus.

Coming back to catch the bus, we needed to run. For kids and seniors it was quite difficult. Suggestion: shorten city tour time, give more time for Mendenhall glacier. There was a short stop of 10-15 min in city tour for a sightseeing, the scenery was not so impressive. This time could be added for the glacier tour.

City tour was interesting. A guide drives you around on a bus and there are a few stops to take pictures. We were lucky enough to see a group of bald eagles up close, and our driver was nice enough to make an unplanned stop so we could get out and take pictures of them. The actual glacier is beautiful. There was just enough time to hike to Nugget Falls (about 40 minutes round trip). Because we hiked to Nugget Falls, there was no time to go into the Mendenhall Visitor Center, which is also included in the cost of the excursion. Hiking to Nugget Falls was definitely worth it though.

Informative & Fun Excursion
September 29, 2014
We got a quick tour of Juneau on our way out to Mendenhall Glacier. Our tour guide/bus driver was a young lady who had grown up in the area and had lots of inside info to share with our group, which made for a more authentic experience. The glacier was impressive with a huge waterfall which we hiked out to after being dropped off at the site. The only drawback was the sound system on the bus; at times it was difficult to hear the tour guide.

The tour guide did a great job of describing the people, economy, year round weather, entertainment, and beauty of Juneau. There were several stops, which provided beautiful scenery. The stop at the glacier was great! You will see plenty of salmon in the fresh creeks, and you will even see a bear occasionally. The glacier was a site of its own, and the visitor's center provides a wealth of knowledge on it.

Stopped at a park for a few photos (beautiful river) and then headed to Mendenhall Glacier. We had 45 minutes (which could've been a little longer--time goes by fast there) to explore. After leaving the glacier, we went over to the other side of the Juneau-Douglas bridge into the town of Douglas, where we had another photo stop with beautiful views of where the cruise ships docked. Overall, it was an excellent experience. The tour guide was awesome. It was well worth it!

September 25, 2012
My husband and I enjoyed out ""Juneau City and Mendenhall Glacier tour."" The tour visited Douglas Island and provided views of Juneau. Then, we toured downtown Juneau and saw the Capitol, Governor's Mansion and shopping district. After a visit to the Log Church we stopped at the Mendenhall Glacier/Visitor Center. Admission was included in the price of the tour. The highlight of the tour was seeing a mama bear and her two cubs. :) Our driver was informative, witty, and presented a positve attitude during the tour. This was in sharp contrast to the company check-in agent at the pier. The agent had broken the 75 (or so) passengers for the 9:30 tour into three bus loads at home the night before. He incorrectly assumed only passengers paying in a single transaction were traveling together. When families and couples traveling together wanted to tour on the same bus he became flustered and angry. It was a poor start--but, an excellent tour.

We really enjoyed this excursion, and recommend it. However, for us at least the Mendenhall Glacier was the most important part of the excursion, and we were only given 45 minutes at the visitor center -- way too little in my opinion. There was much to see there, and too little time to take it in. I would have preferred a shorter Juneau tour and more time at the glacier. Of course, other folks may prefer it the other way around, so there we are.

It was a pretty typical city tour, but the guide - a DJ who transplanted himself to Alaska from Texas, was extremely entertaining.

Beautiful--Up Close and Personal

Our guide was charming and delightful. He was well informed and had a sense of humor. We loved our trip to the glacier, but wished we had more time there, We missed seeing the waterfall. Perhaps it would be helpful if the guide directed us more in choosing the best trail to take to take advantage of our time there.

A Tour Worth Taking
July 24, 2011
The tour guide was very friendly and relaxed. On the bus ride, he told funny stories and jokes and involved the tourists on the tour. The guide knew what he was talking about when it came to the Juneau city tour. On our way to the Mendenhall Glacier we stopped at the Church by the Lake, he even played a beautiful song on the piano for our entertainment. When we arrived at the Glacier Visitor Center, we hiked for about 20 minutes to see the breathtaking views of the Mendenhall Glacier and the Nugget Falls (located at the right side of the glacier). The scenery was a perfect background for a photo to remember the exciting experience of visiting one of the famous glaciers in Alaska.

Beautiful City and View
July 05, 2011
Juneau is a beautiful place. The up-close and personal feel with the glacier is wonderful. However, the gathering place and direction are horrible. We missed our first gathering time because of the vague instruction. The back up driver was incredibly snobby. He got angry because of some people wants to get out at the city while somebody wanted to back to the ship. It was amazingly frustrated with him.

Juneau City had interesting points of history. But I felt the Mendenhall Glacier was magnificent. The beauty is beyond description. Having the museum at the top to view the glacier all around & displaying information about the glacier & the wildlife of Alaska was extremely informative. I would recommend this tour to others especially to view Mendenhall Glacier.
