Rode the tram today. Discovered it almost by accident. Fare was a gold con as part of the road where the track is situated is undergoing redevelopment work. Great value for money and very friendly and passionate staff.

This short tram trip would be great for the kids and is informative and fun for the adults too. For only $2 it's well worth taking 20 minutes out of your day, then take a look around the fish markets and enjoy lunch at one of the many places to eat.

If you like old trams which I do, it is superb. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable about their trams and the local area, driving smoothly and giving a good commentary. The circuit is round a changing developing area. The art work on the tramshed is worth a look. Children seemed to be enjoying the ride and at $2 per... More

We loved this. Classic old tram with seats that switch directions. Sweet commentary from the driver. Very cheap, and your ticket is valid for 45 mins so we just stayed on an rode round 3 times! (The kids were loving it ;-) a lovely addition to the viaduct harbour area.

You need to be realistic about what this is and not expect too much. For $2 it is a fun trip for littlies and an eye-opener for an Aucklander who has obviously lived under a rock and not realised the extent of the Viaduct development.

It is quite exciting of taking the train around the wharf, this place is quite new to many people, there are many restaurants in this area. The train will take you circle the place within 15 mins, the driver is really kind and friendly, and it only costs you 2 bucks for an adult, you can hop on and hop... More

Now the ticket is cheaper (than before). From previous $10 all day, now the ticket is $2 ALL DAY adult, $1 (5-15 yr old) and under 5yr is free. Well, at least much cheaper than before. The route is still the same, circulating the local roads at Wynyard area, no change, same route. The Driver (which is also the Train... More

went on this when 1st established, though pleasant the route was short, so expensive for what you get. As are most of the bars, cafe & restaurants when you have children to also feed. Otherwise a pleasant tourist experience for couples.

A beautiful tram and the conductor was highly knowledgeable with a great commentary. I did think it was pricey but was happy to pay for this experience and my son loved it as it's something unique so close to Auckland's harbour. The actual circuit is average and not scenic at all - a loop trip through the industrial area near... More
