Tram ride is a good informative way to find out about the central city. A shame to be told you need to pay an extra $10 each to get to the gondola ride and back. We had metro cards so caught the local bus instead which was much cheaper. All in all a great day out.

Almost excellent...

I would have rated it excellent had i known beforehand that we had to catch a shuttle bus from the tramway to the gondola. Happy to just add the $10 fee to the combo cost. Of course being in a gondola forth from the bottom coming down and seeing the shuttle pull away, knowing we had an hour to kill before the next one, didn't help.
