The hop on hop off tram had around 18 stops which allowed ample choice. One stop was not far from the gondola and after a pleasant ride and a refresher at the top we walked down through the Botanical Gardens to Begonia House and the rose garden where we enjoyed another lovely botanical display. All together a very pleasant day.

I highly recommend this fun ride. I was quite excited to ride on such a lovely old tram -so well restored. The driver was very informative and friendly. This is such a great way to sightsee, as you can hop on or off without any fuss.

Great tram tour and gondola ride, with hiking at the top. Might have been good to know that we had to take an additional public bus to get to the gondola.

Such a good price and a good combo which makes it the perfect day out.

Interesting experience with good commentary on trams.
