We are a couple in our 60's, not well travelled and on our first cruise with Juneau being our first port of call. We are not keen to take the organised excursions that include Mendenhall Glacier but are anxious that if we use public transport we may get lost or miss the last bus and be left behind when our cruise moves on!! Is it quite straight forward and is the public bus reliable?
We will arrive at 1pm and leave at 10pm the 25th August. Can anyone help us with timescales please?
How long does the bus journey take and how long should we allow at the Glacier roughly? We would like to take a walk down to Nugget Falls and have enough time not to have to rush. Any suggestions of what else to see if time permits, would be welcome. Bear sighting would be a real bonus?
