      My husband and I enjoyed the evening dinner on the Colonial Tramcar. The food was good and the pickup by the tram was on time and efficient. A fun night....

    • Only disappointment was the fact of traveling 3000kms to join two other friends for dinner being four of us for the booking and were placed at two separate tables & not a table of four, so dinner date was a small disappointing in this fact.
