This was a surprise wedding anniversary present for my sister and her husband and it did not disappoint. We had a wonderful trip along the tramways of Melbourne whilst having a delicious lunch. The food was excellent and the staff were very friendly and attentive. The setting was very luxurious and comfortable. I would highly recommend this excursion.

Enjoyed the Tramcar Restaurant immensely. We were a group of 4 ladies, everything was provided, food, wine, whatever you desired.
Staff were excellent, travel was great, travelling down to St. Kilda and back. We were on the early booking. This was great being able to view the scenery, even the gliders on the St. Kilda beach. A great time to do this.

I have been lucky enough to do both the lunch and evening tour, both are excellent value for money. On both occasions the service and food have been exceptional, the staff happy, pleasant and friendly. A tour not to be missed.

Highly recommended. This was my second time on this tour. Once again the food was excellent and the staff very helpful and knowledgeable. The drink was free flowing for the three hour duration of the tour.

This was a great experience to do in Melbourne, the tram travels from the city down to St Kilda so you get to see more of Melbourne at the comfort of eating a very quality meal. The food was excellent and they catered for mine and my wife's dietary requirements - Dairy and Gluten Free. They also gave free drinks throughout the trip which was great as you don't need to spend any money whilst on board.
They finish the meal off with some Port or Baileys and some other liquors which round things off perfectly.
The time does go very quick and they could have given a bit longer notice than 5mins but that was because we were having such a nice time. Could have easily stayed on for another hour or so.
I would definitely recommend this.

So glad we chose this experience! On a very hot Melbourne day it was a pleasure to board this beautifully resorted and maintained tram, blissfully cool and such wonderful staff. The meal was outstanding, the service even better, from friendly and efficient staff. The champagne, wine and liqueurs were of excellent quality and quantity. The tram travels around Melbourne and out to St Kilda, so we had great views during our luncheon. Overall a must do when in Melbourne!
