“Great for tourists and locals”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

This is a great idea for tourists. A tram which travels around the city block or CBD and is free. There's also running commentary on it explaining what other attractions are around. Good for locals who need a quick tram ride from A to B in the CBD.

“The circle trams”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

A great, but crowded, way to see the city for free. It came frequently, so no more than a 10 minute wait in either direction. Staff on tram and at waiting stations werevery helpful...

A free and fantastic way to see the real Melbourne! I love that you can hop on and off at your leisure and wander around the streets. The commentary gives visitors and locals a great feel for the history of Melbourne.

“round in a circle”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

Good way of getting an introduction to the city and the trams but it is slow and you'll soon want to get sorted with your Myke card to use the rest of the system
