“A must”
Reviewed 9 January 2017 via mobile

Just a great way to see some of Portland. The depot has a little info section where you can look at the history of cable trams n Portland. On the tram it doesn't matter where you sit you get a good view. Take a jumper as the wind does get cold. The speakers were not in a good position so it was very hard to hear what the tour guide was saying. You children will love it.

We are glad that you enjoyed your ride on our cable tram and the views over Portland harbour. We agree that it can be chilly in the wind and so we have a supply of hand crocheted 'Nana' rugs for anyone who would like to use them.

“Interestting touching history”
Reviewed 5 January 2017

The operators were enthusiastic and the tram was quaint. The museum was fun and our young girls liked it.

On a slight negative, only had 5 minutes at the WW2 museum. Would have liked longer to see that since we were there already. Seemed a bit rushed.

We had a very enjoyable ride on the cable car. It went around the beach front, took in a lot of landmarks around Portland.
