Good value. The $12 round trip fee is good for unlimited trips over 2 days. Friendly lift operator, Max, points out scenes of interest.

Really enjoyed the tram. It was roomy, we didn't feel squeezed in like some trams. It was a smooth ride and the view is gorgeous! Highly recommend. Will visit again.

Great views when going up and down tramway, operators got a good sense of humour, at the top good leather shop but mostly for youth, hikers or children, was rather disappointed
