The Colonial Tramcar Restaurant Tour was great. We went on the early dinner tour because we wanted to be able to see the views as we travelled, but we were wishing that we had booked the later one so that we could be on the tram for longer. We didn’t want it to end. The staff were great. The food and drinks were excellent. The maitre d’ kept us entertained by singing to us. He was very entertaining. The decor on the tram was beautiful, and everything was spotless. It was something a little bit different, and I would love to go on it again.
