Cheap as chips way to flip back to the past, ride an old wooden tram through the older parts of Lisbon. Take it from Terminus to terminus either way and enjoy the breathtaking and sometimes hairy ride through the back streets of the city.

The rating for this trip very much depends on how you travel on it. The tram has 20 seats and in theory will also carry 38 standing passengers. If you manage to get one of the 8 front facing window seats its a 5 star fun ride with good views. If you get one of the 4 front facing aisle... More

We gave up trying to get on Tram 28 earlier in our week in Lisbon as all the ones we saw were mobbed and the length of queues was off putting (three large cruise ships were berthed at Lisbon and think all their passengers were all trying to get on Tram 28 too or so it seemed to us). Not... More

Riding Tram 28 is an experience that you cannot miss if you have the good fortune to be in Lisbon. That said, all of the warnings you hear about Pickpockets on the Tram are true. We met two victims during our 4 day stay in Lisbon. So, keep your money secured in a front pocket, move your backpacks in front... More

Queues at Moxim to get on are a little mad but as part of the €6 all day travel card this is a gem of a trip around the older part of the city! If you fancy a good walk, stay on till the Se and then back track to the spots you fancy.

We were not as taken by Tram 28 as some reviewers. We love old trams and looked forward to the ride. Noted the pickpocket warnings and secured our valuables in the daybag and locked it. Got on at a quiet stop to be sure we got a seat, and held the daybag securely on my lap. The tram fairly quickly... More

Clearly Tram 28 is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Lisbon, but its worth planning ahead if you have time so you can better appreciate it. Part of the attraction is riding on such a tiny old tram, which perches on top of a central set of wheels, thus giving a really "authentic" jerky ride. Then there's the... More

Having read the reviews that no trip to Lisbon was complete without a turn on Tram 28 we decided to visit the castle via tram so bought ourselves the day ticket for 6 euros each. This is good value as it allows unlimited use on trams, buses and lifts for 24 hours, However, we could not seem to find a... More

Yep, it's a fun thing to do! Great alternative to the more formal Yellowbus tours even though you only see a portion of old Lisbon. And without narration! But if you have a 24 hr metro card there is no cost at all! And you can jump on and off as you wish! Suggestion: definitely catch it at Martim Moniz... More
