This is a great way to get the feel of Portland. You can disembark along the route. Full credit to the volunteers, who give freely of their time. They are very helpful and informative on all aspects of staying in Portland. Maureen60

My partner and l recently travelled on the cable tram, and enjoyed the ride and tour a lot. You can jump on the tram anywhere along the route and buy tickets from the conductor. The tour takes about an hour and a half and very informative. Also if you start from the tram depot you can look around the museum.

What a lovely way to kill an hour. Cruising along the portland foreshore. A small pity the speaker was a bit dodgy as the facts and info we did hear was fascinating. Highly recommend doing this tour to everyone young and old.

Great attraction in Portland the Tram museum worth a look! We went back to the WW2 Museum after the tram ride to see it properly. Not enough time on the tram if you don't want to wait for the next tram. Kids loved it. Scenery stunning.
