“Still a great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

The free city circle tram is free, provides access to most tourist spots, many stops have staff on hand for information, and riding on the traditional trams is great.

“Fantastic for tourists and locals”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

It's great to be able to get around the city centre on a tram and not have to pay for it. Trams are regular and well utilised. We were very impressed

“Great Way To Get Around For Free”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

This is a great idea - thank you Melbourne. Free to circle the city centre and a commentary means that you don't miss where you have to get off. Also love the free bus around a greater part of the City centre. Highly recommend both, firstly to get your bearings and then just to get around if you get sick of walking.

“Great free service - good commentary and good drop-off points”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013

This is a free tram that is every bit as good as paid-for hop-on hop-off services elsewhere - and the trams also run really frequently and in both directions around the circle. Do get crowded, but there is always another one just a few minutes behind if you want to wait for a seat.
