If you don't like a busy tram ride pay your 18 Euros for the tourist tram that runs the same route - you will see it pull up always with empty seats available. Why? Because for 2.85 Euros you ride the local canary yellow tram. It's like journeying along the internal arteries of a human body - up close and... More

The ride is a nice way to see Lisbon, but you are nearly guaranteed of being pick pocketed. We were, and when we went to the police station to report it, we stood in line with 30+ other people that all were there for the same reason. Why the police do not do something about it is a mystery but... More

Romantic touring through narrow streets. Once we had to wait till the driver of a parked car moved his car before the tram was able to pass. Very interesting when the tram was going downhill or climbing up a narrow street.

Within minutes of being on Tram 28 an old woman tapped my husband to give her his seat. He was gracious to stand up and later she started talking to a companion directly behind where he was standing. They quickly departed the tram. At the next stop my husband discovered his wallet had been stolen. Within 15 minutes the thieves... More

Too crowed. Just allows you to "see" the streets, not to "live" Lisbaon. Cheep way to say you have gone through the city, but not an unforgottable trip.

Quaint and unusual way to travel. Exciting going throught the narrow streets. Worth having a ride but can be very busy and you may have to queue and wait your turn

Excellent way to see very interesting parts of Lisbon without having to climb all the hills. We took the tram up to St Jorge's Castle and then got off and slowly meandered down, stopping to look at views on the way and also for lunch.. Good idea to get there early or pre-book if possible as it gets very busy... More

In some respect it is a shame that a tram ride should be the top attraction of a city but in the case of Lisboa this is the case with the #28. The best part of the route is of course through the Alfama with the extremely tight space through the district. There a number of opportunities to jump on... More

A nice and cheap way to make a city tour, especially when the sun is shining and a little wind blowing!
