To sum up, this is a relatively short, low-key tram ride to a small trail that leads to a large fire-watch tower. The tower is really the "highlight" of the trip, more-so that the tram ride, with 360 degree vistas. You can see monkeys and...More

$40 per person for a short trip. Should be $10 max. Nice view but so not worth the cost. Fishing was a much better deal.
