Beautiful views and experience. The tram can be tough if you are afraid of heights, but the view and the hiking trails above are worth it.

I've been to several aerial trams around the world, but what made this one different was the rotation. Everybody can enjoy the view from all angles, which makes it very nice.

It's a great side trip but I recommend you get their early morning or in the early evening. It's cooler at the top. You should take water but there is food and water available at the summit. Don't forget your camera (phone) what ever.....ware good walking shoes, skip the flip-flops.

And the only way as far as I know. Great views, decent price. Well worth the trip. The rotating cable cars are pretty cool.

Great views; loved the 360 degree turns of the gondola. Would consider hiking up and taking the tram back down but you would need to dedicate a day to this.

This was an excellent experience, and probably the highlight of our stay in the Palm Springs area. The staff were excellent, and the value was good. Security was a bit too visible, which was a bit unsettling. Other than that...100% satisfied.

The tram to the top of the mountain (8,500 elevation) is a must do for anyone going to Palm Springs! Go on the 6:00 or 6:30 tram and stay until the sunset! Such a spectacular experience. The 10 min ride to the top is beautiful and informative. You listen to a recording while you sightsee on your trip up to... More

We had such a great time, the tram is so cool. You get a view in every direction. The floor moves, so you don't miss the view. The view from the top is amazing!

The tram is worth your time. The ride is great and the restaurants at the top are clean and affordable. Gift shops selling trinkets. The view is awesome. Inexpensive photo of yourself available for purchase.

The aerial tramway not only has amazing views from the top, nice food at the restaurant, it is also about 30 degrees cooler at the top of the mountain than what is down the bottom in Palm Springs
