Small, cramped and old, these trams were installed in the late 1800s and it doesn't appear that they've been upgraded since. At about 50% of the price of a taxi from Praça do Comércio to where we were staying in Bairro Alto it wasn't very cost effective either. One day on the way into town my travelling companion turned and... More

I'm almost embarrassed to give this attraction such a poor review, because so many others have been positive. But I thought I should share our experiences anyway. First, we had to wait over an hour. Hint: if you don't start at Martim Moriz (one of the terminals), you will not have to wait very long. The bad news: you won't... More

I was very paranoid on the tram as i had been warned in the guide book to beware of pickpockets as this was a hot spot. We had to queue for a while to get onto a tram and it was packed. There are few seats so we were standing and i didnt really see a lot out of the... More

A fantastic tour through small streets and steep ways of Lisboa, long enough to have a comprehensive view of the city. Many paopla waiting but the trams leave ne after the other so you don't have to wait too long. It's worth while.

Nice but crowded. Take the tram to the end of the line, there you might get a nice seat. Not only the line 28 but also the other ones are worth travelling. They are sooo nice.

Carris tram 28 is an overcrowded risky ride. First off if you must ride tram 28 go to the Metro station and buy a 24 hour ticket for 6 Euros instead of paying 2.85 Euros cash to the tram driver for a short one-way ticket. When heading to the Castle the green Castle Tour tram or the red Hills Tour... More

We experienced very long wait times to get on this tram (1.5 hours) . If you don' t get their early, forget it! A tip imaybe is to get on it one stop on as the drivers sometimes leaves a little space for pick ups.
