We read a lot of reviews before visiting Lisbon. We heard horror stories about pick-pockets and how many people were robbed. We also heard that if we used common sense, we would be fine. We ended up spending a few days in Lisbon and we did end up taking Tram 28 all over Lisbon. Here is what we did -... More

The queue was so long so be prepared to wait at least 30 mins. In the sun it was to much for us. We did go on the lift instead and I'm sure waiting for the tram was worth the wait.

The ride is so much fun and a must do while in Lisbon. Driving up or downhill through narrow old streets of Lisbon is a little scary but real fun. A photo is a must.

When I was recently in Lisbon I rode Tram 28, Tram 12, and the Santa Justa elevador. Great fun. I also rode the metro frequently, and Tram 15 to Belem. I have some advice for other travelers. First, pickpocketing on the metro is not as bad in Lisbon as it is in the metros in Madrid and Barcelona. That's not... More

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
