5 star rating: Highly Recommended February 2018

We went on the 8.35pm tour with the 5 course dinner. This was an absolutely amazing experience, food was incredible, service impeccable. Very easy to get to tram stop 125 with the directions given. This trip is excellent value and we would highly recommend this. Thanks to Chef Sarah, waitress Olivia and steward Peter - your team work, friendliness and unbelievable custom service made this excursion unforgettable. Just a note to those going on this, remember to take a cardi or jacket - the aircond was a bit cool at times this is not a criticism as it must be hard to keep a constant temp.

The food and service were very good. I was expecting a narrated drive through city which did not happen. It was a relaxing drive thru city while eating and drinking with friends.

Fantastic trip. Tramcar staff went out of their way to ensure we had a good time, including providing a vegetarian meal last minute as they hadn’t received the notice prior to our attending.
I lovely evening, would definitely recommend it, despite not being able to see much scenery as it was night.
