I wouldn't want to walk all the way up this hill. Tram #28 takes you to the fort and beyond. The driver has advanced driving skills and nerves of steel because there's always someone stepping out in front of him or a car cutting him off. Thanks for getting me around safe and sound!

Save yourself this waste of time. Our driver picked us up, drove us about 1 mile and than declared, "Last stop, everyone off!" He then drove to the other side of the street and charged everyone to reboard the trolley. None of the information we had read or had learned from locals indicated this was anything other than a loop... More

Because of all the advises read everywhere on this tram, we decided to take it a bit far from the city center to avoid the crowd......completely useless! The tram was too full to see anything at all. Unfortunately we did not have credit on our transport card, so we bought the tickets on board: almost 3 times the normal fare;... More

We where told this would be a great experience and qued for11/2 hora for the tram to be crushed into a standing tram and it on Y went part of the way around and then we had to change to complete the route to the end . I think this is really overrated as you can catch trams all over... More

The ride was great, we took it twice. The narrow and steep streets are quiet a challenge for the tram. When you get to Alfama, theres a chance to find some fado or just a nice place to eat.

A popular tram so its best to get on at either terminus if you want to be sure of a seat (different experience if you have to stand) . A fun ride through the narrow streets - we sat on it both ways and enjoyed the rickety ride (keep your head inside the window!)

We had to stand in line as this is a very popular form of transportation. The tram fills up quickly and it is amazing how many people they manage to squeeze in. The desk clerks at our hotel, as well as others, warned us to beware of pickpockets on the tram but we didn't see any.

London's underground is nothing compared to a trip in Tram 28! It seems to be always full but is nevertheless worth being packed into "a sardine tin" with wheels.

Had to try tram 28 but couldn't get a seat and couldn't see much. Better on local buses probably. It does however take you up to the castle with some amazing views.

You will need to queue but do it once just for the experience! (You can also take the 12 if you have enough of the queuing ) Some lovely stops to get on and off....
