Two different forms of transport on cruise ship day. Tram does not have AC. can book at the pier. No audio telling you about the area. If you sit behind the driver he will tell you about where you are. Nothing else really to do....More

The tour is great in this train and Chris is guiding you through the city. It takes you along the beautiful beaches of Newcastle, the suburbs and the city. Good overview, you can get off at any place and take a ride back to town

Thanks globalguide2014. You must have been on a cruise ship. We do a hop on hop off tour when cruise ships are in town. My normal tour has just one 10min stop on the way. Chris.

Thank you for that kind review. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay. The hop on hop off tour is for cruise ships only. The tram's normal tour is a similar scenic tour with just one stop on the way. Regards, Chris.
