For our first visit to Palm Springs the Tram was certainly a great finale and one of the highlights of our vacation.
The Tramway was recommended to us by friends who had previously visited PS and we were not disappointed.
Everyone was kind and explained the journey. We have many special photos to remember all the spectacular views.
The staff were informative and courteous. A well organized tour.
Also the lounge and restaurant at the summit sent us back down in good spirits ! Loved the music in the Tram en route to the base.
Thank you to your team. Carry on and give others the super thrill we were happy to share.

Booking on line made it very easy. Once you get there, you wait on line and they give you a departure time. The tram leaves every 10 minutes. The views were spectacular and there's a café and a restaurant up top.

The tram to the top of the mountain was a perfect way to spend the day. While the food up top was way overpriced, the hiking was priceless. The weather was spectacular and the views were breathtaking.

The view was like looking down at a map of the valley. Parking was well-orchestrated. Regretfully, we forgot to watch the movie about the construction of the tram which I assume would have been highly informative. Lunch at the restaurant was very good and not over-priced given the fact that there is not much competition for lunch customers up top. Price for the tour was reasonable.

This was truly amazing, as we happened to be there during a full noon.

I'm giving this a 4 because I didn't enjoy the trip up. If you feel any motion sickness, sit in the middle where the tram doesn't turn!

The park was beautiful to hike in, with exceptional views. Huge Red Pines among the rock. The Peak restaurant had wonderful food.
