“Good service, huge delays”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

I used the City Circle Tram several times and disliked how it used probably the busiest streets in the Melbourne CBD. Although it is a good idea, it is often too packed and the trams are much more infrequent due to the traffic delays. Personally, a Yarra Tram gets you the same distance and to the door of places quicker and isn't significantly expensive. Unfortuantly for my experience, it was not a scenic tour of the city, but more being packed in like a tin of sardines on a old rickety tram, which didn't necessarily go close to main attractions (you still had to walk from most stops quite a fair distance)

“A MUST do.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

It takes to many stop for tourist attraction. It's totally free and you are able to hop in and out as many times you like. Do take note that during rush hours, it gets pack. A lovely ride to remember.
