Totally enjoyed the tram ride, with a great guide. Wonderful scenery in the canyon and a totally enjoyable experience of the desert.

Yesterday we visited Sabino Canyon. It was worth our while. After paying a nominal entrance fee ($5 per car), we could have hiked 4.x miles to the end of the canyon but it was quite hot so we took the tram ($10 each) and we...More

This review is directed to people who haven't yet visited Sabino Canyon on the NE edge of Tucson. This can be a very good visit, no matter your physical condition. There is a tram you can ride up the canyon and back, and you'll enjoy...More

It was nice visiting Sabino Canyon. The nice landscapes amazed me. Huge cacti standing for 100 years. The shuttle service was very interesting. Also scopes of hiking and picnic.

Carla, you may have the two shuttles mixed up. The Sabino Canyon shuttle goes "to the top" (of the canyon), and, as mentioned below, has numerous stops (nine, not eight). The Bear Canyon shuttle makes just three stops, and... More
