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.
This is a very enjoyable tour, we highly recommend it. The views are spectacular, and even though it was a very hot day, temperatures at the top are 30 degrees cooler. We plan to go again and enjoy the hiking trails that are available. It's a wonderful way to get to the top of what otherwise would have been a very steep climb!
Hands down, this was my family's favorite activity during our trip to Rancho Mirage. The views were spectacular, the temperature at the top was a welcome change from the July heat, the hiking trails were well maintained, and the price was reasonable. This is an experience that shouldn't be missed!
Fantastic experience. Went in early May and the difference in temperature and weather from the desert floor of Palm Springs to the top of the San Jacinto Mountains was unbelievable. Come prepared to hike the Desert View Trail for breathtaking views. Definitely worth the money.
This was great. Cheap prize. Nice view and about 10 degrees chillier at the top of the mountain.
Great tour!! Definitely needs to be done when in the area!!! Personally, I feel it doesn't matter whether you buy the tickets through viator or in person over there since you cannot reserve a specific time slot!! The price is the same and you still have to stand in line once over there to get actual tickets!!! But, a must do no matter how one does it.
It was a winter wonderland. For those with fear of heights be warned, its a little scary, but once you get up there is all worth it. Would definitely do it again.
Brilliant views, worth taking extra time to follow the many miles of hiking/walking trails at the top.
Without a doubt one of the absolute best outings in Palm Springs! The views are spectacular, the ride up the mountain is swift and smooth. Very interesting and informative tour. Would definitely do it again-well worth it!
This was amazing and beautiful. The food there was excellent too!
Never stops being a wonderful thing to do with my family - especially this time of year!
It was a beautiful clear day for the ride to the top, which is about 10,000 ft above sea level. It's a smooth and fast ride up. Commentary by operator interesting. Once at the top there are walks and picnic places. Cafe and restaurant is also available. Views are spectacular from various notches on the trails.
This is a great experience!! Take the tram up in the late afternoon so you can park at the closest parking lot. Take the tram back down after it gets dark so you can see the lights of the city - beautiful!! The tram's inner floor rotates so everyone gets a good view. It was 104 in Palm Springs the day I went, but it was 60 degrees up at the top - cool and refreshing!! Bring a light jacket though because it's chilly once the sun goes down. If you like to hike in the woods you can access them from up there San Jacinto National Park. Views of the woods are very pretty although, to be honest, I think Sedona AZ is much more beautiful! But it's a fun trip and gives you a new perspective on the Palm Springs area. From up above, you can view the windmills below.

You should absolutely do this if you are staying in the Los Angeles area. The desert drive is breath-taking and the views from the top of the mountain are absolutely amazing. All staff are friendly and helpful. You can spend as much time as you like at the top. We travelled up late afternoon daytime and travelled down after dark, which was beautiful.
A pleasant excursion and a relief from the heat -- not that I minded the heat.
Awesome view, there are multiple trails, it is possible to see different kind of animals, the weather was very comfortable, there were a lot of people but the line moves easy, they sell only the right quantity for each hour
