“Nice but crowded and expensive”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2013

Although the symbol of Lisbon, especially for the old town, we found 2.85 euros a little too expensive for one way with tram 28. Furthermore, it's crowded and packed with pickpockets, sometimes it smells and it makes one feel very uncomfortable.
I wouldn't recommend it more than once, just to see how it feels!

“love #28!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2013

We did the trip - about an hour both ways - & thoroughly enjoyed it. Excellent way to navigate the narrow streets of old Lisbon. We even had a very charming & sweet-voiced tram driver on our return trip; it seemed she was just singing to amuse herself while passing the time, but it was a real added treat!

“Unusual city tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

If you don't have much time to visit the city, I'll suggest you to jump on tram 28, as I did on my first day in Lisbon.
You get to see all the most important and traditional places, and you get an idea of the city: narrow streets, little shops, steep slopes, people on the streets, traditional buildings, but also breathtaking and unexpected views of the sea!
I enjoyed great views of Lisbon just looking outside the window, then I decided the places I liked most, and I went there in the next days.
It is something you have to enjoy at least once in Lisbon!

“Great way to see some sites...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

Tram 28 is a great local way to see some sites - its traditional and the streets you see are really best only done by tram anyway! The only downsides are that as the Tram is used predominantly by locals you aren't always guaranteed a seat (in the summer season in particular), and once you get on, it doesn't do a 'loop'. You have to get off at the end of the track and change to another tram to return!!
