“Long, hot queue”
Reviewed June 14, 2013

We waited in line for about 45 minutes to take the tram to the top of Victoria's Peak. The views are spectacular but you pay for it by waiting in the queue to ride up and waiting in the queue to ride back down. We went about 4 pm, and the lines were twice as bad when we came back down shortly after 6 pm. Dusk is a popular time because the harbor lights and skyline are spectacular, but be prepared to wait.

“Rip off!”
Reviewed June 13, 2013 via mobile

Don't waste your time or money. I felt like sheep being herded into a field. When you arrive at "the peak" it's just a glorified shopping mall. The view wasn't even worth it. Much better places to go in Hong Kong.

“Why not?”
Reviewed June 11, 2013

An iconic choice of transport to take you up to the peak and back. When I went there was no shortage of seats but I have heard it can get unbearably busy. Good views too.

“Just a mean of transport”
Reviewed June 9, 2013

The queue was very long and it took us nearly 35mins to board the tram. The waiting area was very crowded and stuffy. The ventilation was quite bad. On the other hand, it was a good experience. Halfway through the ride, you can get a glimpse of the HK city view.

Reviewed June 7, 2013 via mobile

I actually want to go to the peak with car but my friend said they had an excelent time so i think that the peak train would be perfect if i ride the peak train to go to madame tussaud (the peak)
