We took the tram from Charing Cross (in Bendigo!) to the terminal and back again. At the depot we missed the tram after the ten minute stop but the staff were tremendous. It was a great worthwhile adventure. You can't get on trams like that any more so do yourself a favour and try it if you're in the vicinity.

Most informative tour on vintage restored trams. The staff were most helpful. Best way to see Bendigo, hop off and on, forget the car and parking.

We spent a hour at the tram station before taking the tour, and the staff there were happy to talk about the trams and the renovations they were undertaking, fascinating. The tour is excellent value, and the team, many are volunteers, were friendly and informative. A great experience, thank you especially to frank for his informative tour.

This was a great little trip with some good stories along the way and some great information regarding the history of Bendigo. Would have loved to go back on the 10am trip to hear stories of Bendigo during the war, but with two children under 10, it can be difficult to listen and yell at naughty children simultaneously! No, just... More

Friendly and welcoming staff. Personalised service. Park at the Tram Depot and don't worry about parking. Sit back and see the sights of Bendigo. Hop off and a look around town. Fantastic!

Had a ride on the 'Jimmy Possum' tram, through Bendigo's attractions. This tram would be great for families with young children, but left a little to be desired for us. Apart from the general noise, and the wheels on the tracks, the talking tram voice was inaudible in parts. The driver, Ian, was great. We jumped off at Lake Weeroona,... More

Great way to see the city, the staff couldn't have been more helpful: from the man we purchased our tickets from, to the tram driver, to the conductor on the tram, to the gentlemen in the Tram Depot. Thus brings you to every must-see attraction in Bendigo.

Thank Melanie B
