“Great views and day hikes”
Reviewed 12 April 2012

I love the tram...it turns slowly as you climb the mountain, giving a 360 degree view! It's chilly at the top, so take a jacket. I even take gloves, to take the edge off. Bring lots of water and take the longest hiking trails...you have all day. Eat at the cafe and enjoy the views.

“Fantastic View not to be missed”
Reviewed 11 April 2012

3 Adults and 2 children went we bought the combo tickets which included meals from the cafeteria style dining. The tram ride was really cool and the kids enjoyed it! I recommend skipping the cafeteria style dining it was just ok food. The kids had a little trouble with the altitude but enjoyed the tram ride up and back down. They take your picture and we did buy them they were nice too.

It has a great view of the valley. Be sure to take a jacket no matter what time of year.

“Nice outing”
Reviewed 10 April 2012

Great views. Nice outing for a few hours while in Palm Springs. Spend an hour or two on a leisurely walk or hike once you get to the top. Be sure to take a jacket.

“Wonderful, Amazing!!!”
Reviewed 10 April 2012

After all the years I've been coming to Palm Springs I finally took the Tram. It was a great ride, however my daughter and I had to go back down quickly as the altitude really got to us, we just weren't prepared for it. We ate at the restaurant/cafeteria it was ok. Don't miss this while in town!!!
