This was fun. Beautiful view of the valley. Views from up too are amazing. Enjoyed lunch at the restaurant upstairs (not the buffet) which was good. Be sure to make reservations.

The ride was very smooth and the views from the top are amazing! It was not very crowded, so we enjoyed some snacks and drinks while watching the sunset!

The trip up the mountain was awesome. The views were amazing and the system for keeping the ticket times so not to crowded is also very organized

Beautiful cable car, with an important slope and a beautiful view from the top! Pre-purchasing the ticket avoids any queues, recommended.

Everything went smoothly and we had a lovely meal at the Sky Bistro
