The horses look so well and groomed. The tram stops all along the front and the staff are very friendly. Take a day ticket and travel on it as much as you want.

Wonderful experience. Punctual hop on hop off tram ride. For just £6.00 you can travel all day up and down the promenade. These beautiful horses look well cared for. The staff are friendly and helpful. A definate must if staying in Douglas.

Hi £3.00 each way I think. We walked one way and tram the other. They did not have a 24 hour one when we were there.

An adult single ticket is £3 and £2 for a child. A day ticket is £6 adult and £3 child. Hope this helps. It is great experience!
