“Free abd easy access”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2013

At no cost these regular trams run a circular route with recorded commentary (in English). You can board and alight as often as you wish and there are a large number of sites to see and visit .. a good days outing

“Free travel for overview of beautiful Melbourne”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2013

I know this tram can get busy but for tourists it is a great way of seeing the sites of Melbourne and jumping off when you need to explore.
It runs every 10 minutes and it rattles along giving you a commentary along the way.
It's free so enjoy.

“Melbourne City Circle Tram”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2013

A historical free- albeit slow- tram run around the city outskirts and a little beyond that is good for an overview of the city if you have the time but not if your in a hurry to your destination. The commentary will highlight places you may wish to visit later if time permits and provide god orientation of Melbourne city centre. Also an interesting way to travel in one of the old style W class trams of the past which have been lovingly restored.
