We were somewhat disappointed with the Talking Tram tour. There were not enough different stops and it did not go very far. We felt it was a bit expensive for what you got. The trams were well restored and the staff were good and helpful.

You get to sit on refurbished old tram/s for a trip around Bendigo with all the old buildings highlighted. Sold as the Talking Tram, the conductors also tell a few stories and were the best part of the tour. Good way to spend an hour or longer if you hop on and hop off as the tickets are valid for...

Even for the tourists from Melbourne, the trams of Bendigo are a great experience! The round trip takes around an hour and you can jump on and jump off along the route and tickets are valid for two days. The conductor and driver were delightful, we got to see a tram derailment and enjoyed the kooky crocheted tram that carried... More

If you like history and especially if you like trams this one is a must. We took the Depot and 'Talking Tram' tour. The tour was conducted by a very enthusiastic and interesting volunteer. We were taken through the large historic Depot (oldest in Australia). Where they repair and restore historic trams, some over a hundred years old. You even... More

It was a great way to see the city centre of Bendigo and we got to live in the past travelling in the old trams. They have been beautifully refurbished and kept to the original design and feel of the old trams. The staff were very friendly. Must have a ride and experience some Bendigo History

If you can spare half day for a bit long trip to Bendigo, you won't be disappointed when you will see this area yourself.

My boyfriend and I had great fun on the Bendigo tram depot and workshop tour. The highlight of the tour was the friendliest guide placed on this earth, the lovely Tammy. She was knowledgeable beyond her years and captivated our small group with her warmth. Well worth a tour if you're in town. Thanks Tammy!!!

Having no interest in trams I was not sure about going here, however I found it really enjoyable. It was very informative and you were able to hop aboard most of the trams there. The guide was very knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend this to anyone doing the Talking Tram as it is worth the stop.
