Even though I don't like heights I enjoyed the views from the top. We did the walk to Wellmans Divide. Well worth the slight effort.

This was a super scary experience for us, however, It is so spectacular and once you get to the top the hiking and views are breathtaking!

Anyone who has travelled has done many cable cars.. This one is unique evades the car revolves. It's a long drive up the mountain to the tramway.. Long queue for tickets, another long queue to get onto the tram.. Fabulous ride up, but if you're not into nature not much up there. Food and drink expensive... Fabulous views.. Good hikes... More

The Palm Springs Aerial Tramway is a must see for anyone who visits Palm Springs. This is truly a unique experience whereon riders can take a spinning gondola from the valley floor, up Chino Canyon, to a mountaintop ridge at 8,500 in elevation. The roating floor makes it possible for everyone to appreciate the breathtaking views. Staff was very friendly... More

If you are a fan of nature, engineering or just curious as to what all the fuss is about you have to go on the aerial tram. The journey up is a real eye opener and the views are beyond anything I have ever seen, a must visit if you are in the area.

We enjoyed the Tramway very much. It is a little spendy but I'm guessing it takes a lot of maintenance. I was a little disappointed in the views from the nicer restaurant but outside was lovely and there are many great hiking trails. The trip up and down is breathtaking with an opportunity to see all of the views on... More

Great view of the valley--the Tram rotates--some discomfort, but worth the trip up! Sometimes you can see animals on the way up or back. It is fun to see how the plants change as you go higher.

If your visiting the Palm Spring area, a visit to the aerial tramway must be on your list of things to do. This is one of the areas' signiture attractions and is not too expensive. If you can't find a place to park close to the cable car station,shuttle buses run regularly to take visitors to the station. My wife... More

The trips up and down the mountain were breathtaking! The only bad part is that the floor rotates so that everyone gets to see out of every vantage point. This meant that some people didn't know how to stand still and kept trying to move to maintain their view, thus pushing others out of the way or stepping on people's... More
