And yes, excursions can be VERY pricey. We've found that pretty much every town has a lot to offer simply by getting out and walking around. At $16 roundtrip, the mendenhall bus is one of the cheapest and nicest simple excursions, imo.
I have always used the public buses when in Juneau. They probably still go to the glacier. Sorry I don't have a web site, since it has been a few years.
