Description

Delve into the history of Juneau during a tour of town narrated by a knowledgeable local and member of the Tlingit native group. After scoping out landmarks and learning about the region's incredible past, drive up to the Mendenhall Glacier, where you can hike to waterfalls and explore this vast and ancient field of ice on your own.

Hop on a comfortable coach in downtown Juneau and set off through the streets, passing over the Gatineau Channel for a great panoramic view of the city. Listen as your guide regales you with tales of Juneau's human past and natural history, sharing insight into what the region was like more than 10,000 years ago. Hear about the origins of the Haida-Tlingit tribe, the impact of Russian, European, and American influences, and the booming Gold Rush that colored the area's more modern past.

On the outskirts of town, arrive at the Mendenhall Glacier, a valley-sized mass of ice slowly crawling its landscape-shifting way down from the Juneau Ice Field. Set off to explore this breathtaking natural feature on your own, trekking down to Nugget Creek Falls, taking in the view from Photo Point Trail, or heading to the visitor center to check out the interactive geological exhibits before returning to the cruise ship terminal downtown.

Vince was a great tour guide. Only suggestion would be to give clients more time at the falls/glacier and less before and after during the city tour portion.

If this is the only way you will see a glacier take this tour. A quick overview of the city ant plenty of time at the Glacier. Nice easy walk however best views are probably from the information centre.

It cost $135 to ride in a bus for about 25 minutes to a State Park where the glacier is - and where admission is free. The 'City' tour was the bus driver narrating along the way and telling stories. We could have done the same thing ourselves for much cheaper (taxi?).
