I indeed have mixed feelings about HOHOs. Yet I am a big fan of tacky "Petite Trains" (my kids and husband are ashamed at my excitement whenever I see one) and yes, we took the Vienna "Ring Tram" (we had mere hours there,our hotel was right on the ring--why not?

We did make good use of the HOHO in Dublin, even though we enjoyed all our taxi rides there. Part of the reason that HOHO was useful is that we were staying right on its route and therefore could use it quite efficiently. It also was a cost effective way to get to Kilmainham Gaol and the Guinness Brewery and get some overview on the way there and back.

Sorry,I can NEVER figure out why people like the HOHO in Paris if one has more than just hours in the city. Heck, one can WALK its darn route. Thinking I had missed something, we took one our second time in Paris and soon we all looked at each other and said, "What in the world????". We got off the bus shortly and never went back. I always recommend that if you want a bus overview of Paris, there are great Paris public bus lines that do the job, with plenty of stop-by-stop guides available online and in print (e.g. http://www.parisperfect.com/blog/201...ghts-in-paris/).

But when you only have limited time, and you just WANT an overview, I do see why one would take one.
