The ride itself is not that long, but it gives you plenty of opportunities to take very nice photos over the city. It also spares you the time to walk up / down to "Cerro de la Bufa". This is not a public transportation and serves only as a tourist attraction.

Just perfect if you want to travel from "el grillo" to " la Bufa". Nice place to take pics. In my opinion is kind of expensive(8 dollars round trip) considering the distance and how much it takes.

Great attraction. I am terrified of heights so it was definitely a challenge. But the ride is very smooth and the city looks gorgeous from up top. The guide was very knowledgeable and gave us great suggestions of what museums to visit and gave us a nice history of the city and of all the different architectural views we could... More

Very good vistas of the city, worth the walk, but consider that it will take you to the other side of the city, I would suggest just take it in one direction and get transport from the other side back to downtown.

The view is great !... You can see the all city and it's also a nice way to go to the La Bufa mountain whithout walking to much. If possible go in the morning because in the after lunch it's busy and you may have to wait a couple of hours.

After visiting the Minas, wandering in the heart of what had been one of the great silver-bearing mountains in Zacatecas, my wife and I decided once we were nearby to take the teleferico across the city to the opposite hill. State-of-the-art cable construction gave us perfect confidence to think about what we were seeing, not whether we would tumble into... More

What a rush....don't miss it for sensational views of the city. It's a bit difficult to find on foot, but well worth the experience. Take a cab from town to avoid a lengthy walk if you are impeded in any way.

This is a nice way to enjoy the beauty of Zacatecas and have an overall view of the city. I believe that taking the teleférico during the evening (with the city lights) would be even better! You can buy the tickets directly in there but It is also a good option to check for tours that include the transportation to... More

I have to say I was a bit disappointed when I finally hopped in the teleferico. The ride is very short, and it was too crowded, I couldn't really see that much of the city. Was able to take about 2 or 3 pictures, but I was expecting more.
