Really enjoyed this. It’s just a tram going around the city but for a couple of € you can drink the local cider. Loved every minute

It took an hour and 3/4 to get on here. It's okay to see the sights and have a wine. Once you done it you've done it

I would think slim if just turning up. We were lucky having a free table for the 2 of us - it was busy! They do hire out trams for Private parties. We saw a single tram unit with people partying. Maybe that's an option? Have... More
