Discovery trip in a vintage tram

Description

Trams have long been an important element of Basel life. Our trip on a vintage tram will provide a window on the past: giving you a feeling of what it was like to travel around the city a hundred years ago. You can look forward to a tour in which you'll hear authentic sounds of yesteryear: as you rumble along in the old tram, our guide's enlightening commentary will help evoke times past. Besides that, the trip will enable you to see the city from a different perspective.
