I was there on the weekend, the tram ticket stall was manned by 2 people so I hung around for an hour waiting for the tram but did'nt see it. I was far too lazy to enquire as we had just stuffed ourselves at a resturant next door.

Sounds like a really good idea but there was no information up regarding where it went, price, how long, route etc.

next time I am there I will ask more about it.
