This is a good stop for the entire family. I would recommend that you check their website and also call first to verify they are open. Also, bring a coat. It can be cold up top. On busy days there can be parking issues, I would recommend going as soon as they open. We went on a busy weekend and... More

Visited late afternoon in summer. The queue wasn't that long, but as the cable cars only take 6 people it does take some time. It's a nice pleasant ride and the views from the top are great. There is a small gift shop and restroom at the top, but nothing else to do and not much space to walk around.... More

The Tramway provides a great view of El Paso, Juarez, and Sunland. It's something you should definitely do once if you visit El Paso. You can hike up the mountain, too and take the tramway down.

Check it out. Great sights. The store at the top has room for growth. Once up there space is very limited.

This attraction is a must. The attendant on the tram was amazing. He was full of information and so pleasant to talk to. If you are in the area do not miss out!

In a city worth not much to do, it was ok. Ride up and down but wouldn't do it again. View is of 2 US states, and Mexico but hard to tell where everything ends or begins.

The ride up the mountain takes about 4 minutes. The tramway was originally built to construct the communications towers, which was an interesting fact. Unless you plan to hike at the top, you'll only spend about 10-15 minutes.

I went with my wigs and it is worth the eight dollars. The guides are friendly and provide great recommendations for other things to do and see in El Paso.

This is a good way to start your stay in El Paso. The view from the top will give you a good sense of the geography of the city and the surrounding area. If you like riding on trams, this one is fairly nice, though short, and the souvenir shop is rather sparse (but who rides a tram to see... More
