I can thoroughly recommend a 3-day Go card for unlimited travel on trams/train/bus. Love the juxtaposition of horse drawn trams where the conductor uses a near-field card reader 19th to 21st century in an instant!

Had a great evening on the 'Pie & Mash' train. Excellent fun & good food. The staff are very friendly & go out of their way to enhance the evening. Lovely way to see the beautiful Manx countryside.

The transport system on Isle of Man easy to access and relaxed way to see this characterful island. Buy a visitor card to get access to transport and places of interest - around £55 or less for National Trust members.

Fabulous experience, well prepared food, good staff, fascinating surroundings. The only down side was a very, very loud party on the next table who made conversation impossible.
