“Relaxing view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

This tram 35, is free in Melbourne, and takes you around the inner City/CDM. While you can sit down, and hear where you are. After some hours of walking this is a good relaxing spot, to see the city.

“Great way to see the City Circle”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

Fantastic way to see the inner city circle - and to have a free option to get from one side of the city to another! You can get on and off as many times as you like, and also helped as shelter from the rain when we got caught out! :)

“Free tram”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

Although quite old, the free tram around the inner city offers a great relaxing ride to view the city. You could hop on and off at no extra charge.

“A good idea to use this transport”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

The City Circle Tram is a very convenient way to move around the Melbourne CBD, it gets a bit crowded and slow during the peak hours. Not easy to get a seat most of the time, so I would not recommend it if you can't stand and handle the bumps and jolts along the way.

“Good way to get around the city”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013

This tram is very convenient, but can get a bit crowded because even the locals use it!! Runs in both directions around the city perimeter with plenty of places to get off. Well worth riding once to see where things are.
