“Perfect expiring tour through Portland sky”
Reviewed 22 August 2014

During our Portland visit,last July,we had to visit one of the medical institutes in the city.
So nice to know that the best way to reach that complex of centers is with the Aerial tram.we"ve noticed that lot of the patients and the medical personal are using this nice quick and spectacular transportation . The cost is very moderate and while taking a two ways ticket it is even cheaper.
When you are up there in the veranda you can see the area around Portland and understand the past and the present time changes of the region. You can also get the idea that it is easier to get well when you can see the views from your room window at the hospital .

“Just ok...”
Reviewed 15 August 2014 via mobile

Saw this advertised in the airport and thought it would be fun. But when we got there and took it up, we found out it just went up to a bunch of hospitals so we came right back down. There were great views of Portland, but not worth it to me. Good thing we only paid a few bucks each.

“Simple, fun, and cheap”
Reviewed 15 August 2014

We were able to see Portland. Great view, quick and not too crowded. Too bad there is no stores to see and no coffee shop.

“4-T Trail ends by taking this scenic tram down”
Reviewed 14 August 2014

if you enjoy hiking in the forest a few miles from downtown Portland, Google Portland 4-T Trail and follow the direction by taking the public transportation to Portland highest point of Council Crest Park for a great view, then hike, 90% downhill, 2.6 miles In a forest, another 1/2 mile walk to the hospital's aerial tram down to Moody Street area. On Moody Street, walk south 3 blocks to the food trucks with tables and chairs. Two of us had a great $16 lunch of Tri-Tip Steak Salad, Thai ice tea, Eggplant & Tofu with rice and Fried Tofu with Peanut Sauce.
