This would have been good but there were just too many people crowded on the tram it wasn't nice. Made it hard to actually see the view.

You start off on the tourist tram in the city with a recorded running commentary pointing out the tourist highlights. Everything is fine until you hit Docklands. The locals living and working in Docklands have discovered the free tram too, so they all pile on...More
