Nice and clean team from Glenelg to the city. This travel is not free, and we bought tickets + stamped them ("validated"). Tram ran smoothly both ways. On the return trip we jumped to tram in the middle of the city. We never figured out where to buy tickets back: we looked at some 5 stations, and they had no... More

The tram was two minutes walk from our hotel and they run every few minutes so easy to get to the beach with worries especially when you are in a strange place. Also it only cost a few dollars each way so very cheap. The tram was very clean and plenty of seats with plenty of leg room. Would highly... More

The tram is free around the city central and very reasonably priced for a lift to the beach in Glenelg. The coaches are very clean, comfortable, and well maintained.

We were in Glenalg and traveled into the city on the tram. Had no problems with tickets. Nice to look out and view the city as we passed through. Nice and easy. The tram was in good clean condition.

The tram is easy to use and comfortable. It comes every 5-7 mins and I have never felt uncomfortable on it

Free within the city and goes right in to the heart of Glenelg which makes it the best way to get from city to the sea

This was the first time I've caught one of the new trams since they've all been upgraded. My general fear of public transport has now been quelled. They're spacious, clean and safe and a smooth ride. Not what I remember it being when I was younger. A quick easy way to get through the suburbs to the city and down... More

This is a lovey relaxing half hour tram trip through to Glenelg, see some of the sights along the way, including lovely old stone houses. Glenelg has lots of lovely restaurants, great place for lunch. The tram is free for seniors during the day, which is a nice touch. We thoroughly enjoyed it.

Whilst the iconic old trams have been replaced with newer versions, the trip from the centre of Adelaide to Glenelg beach and back allows travellers to look into the back yards of Adelaide suburban life. The trip each way is around 30 minutes. Once at Glenelg (Adelaide's premier beach area) there is a host of things to do. One can... More

The tram to Glenelg is a wonderful way to get there! I wish every city had this service. Although the tram is free in the city, you must pay a small fee to take it to Glenelg. Well worth it! Evening trams 3:30- 5:30 are quite busy so be ready to stand.
