The only way to get around town - jump on and jump off as you see things and places to visit. The commentary was very interesting as well - Full of great info well done

We enjoyed the jump on/jump off nature of this tram. You can get discount coupons for this service at many of the iSight locations. It's a little pricey, but worth it as it's a narrated tour which is quite informative.

This is a hop-on-hop-off tram for sightseeing, not the commuter tram for daily transport. Day ticket is $25. It takes you go around the city centre in the restored heritage tram. Just a side note, the city centre is quite compact and can easily be done on foot.

Though is was a cold rainy day, the tram was warm with heaters.
The commentary is interesting and informative.
There is a lot to learn about the city and its’ recovery.
It is a slow journey and is hop on hop off and visits most points of interest. Certainly worth doing the trip several times as each driver has his own style of commentary.
Yes I would do it again.
There is a combination with a shuttle to and including the Gondola. Sadly we did not do that as it was rainy and cloudy.
