Took the trip along the promenade on a wet and windy Sunday morning. It was a nice way to spend 40 minutes. It would have been even better if the weather had been nice. The staff were friendly. Only one criticism is that some kind of commentary would be nice, so you know what you are looking at.

Was great, could have had a commentary to improve the journey. Staff were very friendly. A bit bleak in the wind and rain.

Nice to travel at the boulevard by Horsetram. Can be used with the Go Explore Card. Not suitable when you carry bags or trolleys! And at sunny days very busy with children.

An excellent service with, again, very helpful staff. They answered my questions and also got me to where I was going - and brought me back home again!
