4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

So convenient to hop on and get to the shopping and restaurant areas. The only problem was overcrowding.

“Tram Ride”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

This is a great free service that Melbourne provides. You can hop on and off as you need and there is staff on board telling you what is available to see at each stop. Beware the tram can get very crowded and it can be difficult to get on sometimes. Kids love this and you can sit on and do a complete city circle ride.
