We travelled the whole East side of the Island using bus, horse tram, electric and steam trains. Timetables are easy to follow and you get to see fantastic views

Buses and trains are plentiful. Drivers so friendly and one bus driver stopped having spotted us waving. All good except for the fact there is actually nowhere to go on Isle of Man. Once you have travelled on bus or train which were all comfortable...More

Getting around IOM could not be easier. The timetable for the bus, steam train, electric tram/train and horse drawn tram is in one convenient booklet, with plenty of maps. For £40 for 5 days, we got at least twice that in value. Beware though. If...More

Isle of Man Bus and Rail are excellent and it's a great way to travel and do your sightseeing whilst on holiday. It is really good value for money too and we would recommend it.

A rover ticket will give access to all the IOM transport systems including the electric railway, the steam railway and the horse drawn trams. All worth travelling on and a good day out touring the island.

Used a 3 day pass which covers road and rail for unlimited travel. On the trams choose where you sit as some trams have comfy seats, others the original wooden seats
