Great way to see the city & having the commentary on what you are looking at & the history of the buildings. Great bit of driving as we went through some very narrow laneways. Really enjoyed it & the train even had seatbelts.

Great way to see the city in the little yellow train. Trip takes approx. 30 minutes with commentary as you go. Plenty of opportunities to take photos along the way. Tip sit on the right hand side if train is facing up the hill as there is more photo options from the right hand side. Very enjoyable
