What a great idea. Every city should have one (or bus equivalent). It was a great way to see the city and get a good feel for what there is to see. you can hop on and off as often as you want and get close to all the city attractions. It has good cometary about the city and attractions... More

Brilliant idea. Jump on and off where you want, see all the main city centre sights, on a charming old tram. Some have a commentry too so you know what your passing.

I went to the CBD for the day and used the tram to explore the city. It was good to let the tram do some of the walking and take one from place to place leaving more time for exploring. You can do the whole circuit in one go or hop on and off like i did.It's a great service... More

I enjoy the free city circle tram from Pensione hotel to chinatown in melbourne. Then I went to the library to read newspaper. The full tram ride took about 1 hour. The tour is free and fun

It's a very convenient way to get around the city especially since the city streets seem to appear on a grid and the tram stop at each end of the street. It's free and some of the carriages even have audio guides. It can get jam packed though but again... it's free.

As an Englishman, I love to moan. But anyone who moans at a free and informative mode of transport in a city centre, especially Melbourne, needs to re-evaluate how they score attractions.
