The streets were cold and flooded but it was warm inside. The staff were friendly and helpful and knew about the food and drinks being served. Only downside I world say is you don't see much scenery, it passes a lot of city streets etc. Still overall a good experience.

Great way to see the city or get a general introduction to the city. It is free with recorded audio on these old trams. They can get crowded at times.
