We went for a ride in the Tram 28, because was in all our Lisbon guides. The Tram was so busy, and we saw two people pick pocketing. But because the owner noticed that the wallet was missing, she asked very loudly if someone saw her wallet, so the tram close the doors, and the person trow the wallet on... More

This tram is a trademark of Lisbon, and certainly should ride him. Passing through the picturesque quarter of Alfama, and it can reach the beautiful gazebo and fortress of São Jorge.

Was so looking forward to the tram ride but it's not a loop service you end up at another plaza centre and you have to pay another fare to return to your start point. Also met obnoxious people whom tried to pickpocket me. Lucky my host warned me before I left for the ride and I didnt lose anything but... More

The yellow trams running around the city are amazing to watch when your not on it. However it is not as pleasant when your on it and its cramped like sardines, and its going slower than walking. I would suggest doing this at a very unbusy time, and perhaps just once... or if you need to due to Lisbons hilly'ness... More

Having been recommended to travel the 28 Tram, I assumed it would be packed, so no surprises there really. At first the experience was great, taking in the sights of Lisbon via a lovely mode of transport. All soon spoilt by a creepy woman edging ever closer to my partner to then me spotting her putting her hand in his... More

We took the Tram 28 from the first stop thinking it would not be as crowded. The crowds were there nonetheless. Fortunately, there were two trams that arrived at the same time. We took a short ride up to Alfama and got off to take in the view and go to the castle. It was an "ok" experience and we... More

How good and pitoresque can it get? This is like riding the tuk tuk in Deli :-) Lovely ride. A time travel, made while delighted with the views over Lisbon. Sometimes the are "fado" singers there to improve your ride. Can it get any better?

Even though tram 28 is listed as one of the top attractions and "must do" in Lisbon it's very much overrated. The tram is always packed, especially in the best parts of the town when it goes uphill to Alfama area. So we had to stand and with that you can't see much out the windows. So then what's the...

Recommend you do it!! But be prepared to wait alittle, worry about pickpockets and maybe get stranded somewhere in the middle. I accessed this "ride" via the subway and it is a walking distance that's not too bad unless its raining. The beginning of the line is at the station where other lines begin so make sure you are waiting... More
