Reviewed June 14, 2013

. A great way to orientate yourself with the city.Just look for route number 35 and the heritage colour scheme of the trams.

“Great idea but not enough trams for passengers,”
Reviewed June 14, 2013

Trams were infrequent and more often than not crowded. We were only in Melbourne for a week so it wasn't cost effective for us to purchase a pass for the pay trams.

“Best way to get around”
Reviewed June 13, 2013

The tram service is Melbourne is the best way to get around and the City Circle route is free and does a full lap of the city and the docklands shopping area.

“It's Free!!”
Reviewed June 13, 2013

Not often you travel and you find something for free! Great for getting around the Melbourne CBD!! It has audio commentary, giving tourist information about the city landmarks. The trams are a red and gold vintage style and very popular with tourists!
