Great for getting to castle, meander down on foot and stop at the little cafes on way. Not advised at night unless you are in agroup situation.

The best way to see old Lisbon's most traditional neighborhoods, where the lower middle class most traditional families still live. Suggestion: hop off at Miradouro da Graça and see the most beautiful panoramic view. Some of the older houses have wonderful inside gardens.

The tram is a great experience but BEWARE when you are waiting to board in the main square. I was in a queue of people with my bag tucked securely under my arm., and my purse in a zippered pocket inside the bag. When the tram arrived I was literally 'swept off my feet' by two men who 'helped' me... More

Perfect for visitors who want to take a look at some of the main spots in Lisbon. This tram sweeps downtown and old Lisbon, giving visitors a glimpse of the sites, as well as the locals' living style.

If you haven't been on a tram it worth going on. I think it's best to get on at the very beginning to get the best out in the line. Very busy so you might need to stand.

When you get to Lisbon, get your metro pass, better yet, get the Lisboa Card. A day pass for 6 euros will get you unlimited subway, buses, trollies and the funicular, oh, and the elevators. Buy the Lisboa Card and you get all that and free or discounted admission to many of the attractions. Tram 28 is the most fun... More

The tram 28 allows one to get an overview of some of the best sights around Lisbon. True, it is mainly tourists, and true there's pickpocketing in progress, but zip- up, be aware and enjoy the fun! It's not too difficult to navigate, we hopped off several times not exactly knowing where we were or how to get back, but... More

Definitely worth giving this tram a ride, it's like a an ageing roller coaster in many parts. However, it helps to know what you want to see and where to get off as there is no information on board and tram is very crowded, would suggest Basillica de Estrella, Cathedral, and Castelo de São Jorge, which are all on the...

You will probably have to queue but it is worth it. (Watch your pockets especially in the queue!) It is quite an amazing ride. Tip - stay on until the end, get off, and then get back on again going back to the top of the hill to enjoy the views, and saving your legs!

Whilst I appreciate that others may have had bad experiences on these trams, we can only report that we thought they were fantastic and nostalgic. We rode tram 28 every day whilst we were in Lisbon and managed to do the complete route over that period. Some rides we could not get a seat and were squashed in, but the... More
