Nostalgic experience.

Wonderful food, service and experience. My friend enjoyed the wine matching with the meal. The carriage is beautifully restored with polished wood and fabrics.There is a toilet on board but as expected on a train, it is small and very low. People with limited mobility may find it difficult to use although there is a hand rail. There is a toilet stop after the mains are served back at the boarding point. The journey then continues for dessert.

Great travelling on a vintage team enjoying a four course meal. Food was excellent, even more so considering the tiny kitchen the chef had to prepare in for 40 people, and service wonderful. Thoroughly recommend.

Very small seats

Unique experience (and for that reason I recommend doing it). Food is OK, but not more than that. Reason for my "average" rating is that the seats are really small if the "assign" the small tables (tables for "two persons") to you.

We flew in and that night did this wonderful tramway tour and 4 course dinner. What a delightful experience! Great to see the downtown area from/different angles, food was excellent. We did the wine pairing and highly recommend it. Service was top notch. This is not some hokey tram ride, this is an elegant night out!
