It was a wonderful family day. Its good to wear hiking shoes and walk the trails. Bring your own lunch and have a picinic lunch. Be aware that motion sickness is a possibility.

What a view, what an awesome escape from the heat. When you want to go on a hike this is the most picture perfect place to be in the woods.

A good stop for tourists. The views are exquisite and cover a wide range of the valley. Be prepared as it is quite cold on the top, even in the summer. I cannot imagine what it would be like in winter.

This is a very well organised and safety conscious tour to do. Buses take you from the free car park to the base stop. The drivers are friendly and knowleadgeable. The views on the way up are spectacular and even better once you reach the top. There's a restaurant and a self service cafe, a shop inside and plenty of... More

Don't miss the opportunity to get out of the desert heat and see the amazing views. There are great trails, some short and some very long, that lead up into the mountains from here.

This is a great attraction and with the rotating floor unlike anything we have ever done before. The views at the top are stunning across the valley. The heat difference is remarkable and you may want to take a jacket for while you are up top. The car parks are very well organised and the trolley service is very good.... More

We've only got two days in Palm Springs and it's the end of July- 105 degrees. So, why not? If we hadn't gone, I always would have wondered if I'd missed something. The views of the desert floor are gorgeous! Turn and look at the rock faces as the tram climbs and you'll wonder how in the world this thing... More

Beautiful views, friendly staff, clean and organized. Thoroughly enjoyed our venture. I am a walker, my husband is a hiker. We decided upon a 5-6 mile route that pleased both of us. My husband usually enjoys the longer, more difficult trails.

Fun trip up, awesome views. plenty to do once you are up on the mountain. Hiking, restaurants, bar, snacks, views, views, views. Trip from parking lot to tram is a little hard if you are in Lot A

The most amazing view is yours once you are at the top of this Tram ride. Be sure to bring a sweater because the difference in temperature once you hit the top is about 30*!
