Enjoyed the tram ride to Glenelg beach and very nice little beach town. Nice coffee shops and community.

If you are staying in town this is the cheapest and best way to go to famous Glenelg beach. Only exception is if there is 5 of you then sharing a cab might be cheaper

We used to love going from Glenelg to the City by tram, that is the Old Tram!... now it's just a city tram - nothing special.

This was fun way to travel in Glenelg they are not the Melbourne Rattlers but streamlined and more like a train which is comfortable I the 40 degree heat. Trams are very well maintained and cheap. Very much a touristy thing to do not many locals in the tram when I hopped on,

Nice comfortable tram ride down to Glenelg & back to the City. Killed about 4 hours & gave one a feel for the Adelaide metro way of life. Disappointing dining experience/s await one @ the Glenelg end of the tracks. Lots of closed places & junk food joints abound. We were after some good King George Whiting but nowhere to... More

We visited Glenelg for lunch and returned on the tram. It was a convenient way to return to the city and our stop was almost outside the Playford Hotel.

Wonderful. From city to Glenelg return. Excellent transport mode. Revisiting Glenelg and viewing the progress made since 45 yrs ago was great.

Enjoyed the trip to Glenelg & also enjoyed Glenelg. The waterfront was fantastic & unfortunately they have good shopping. The tram was clean & on time.

I think the tram is a perfect way for people to get from city to Glenelg and enjoy the beach. However I don't think the tram itself is any special other than the fact the terminal at Glenelg looks quite nice. I won't be calling this an "attraction" as there's nothing scenic about this ride.
