“Leisurely ride - and it's free!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 30, 2013

This is a great way to familiarise yourself with the city and get a feel for the place - you can get off anytime you like and it takes you past a lot of major attractions. Best of all it's for free!

“Melbourne city tram - hop on/off - and free”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 29, 2013

This tram is so easy - hop on and off - constant throughout the day - and free! It travels all around the city centre, so takes you wherever you want to go.

“Value!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 29, 2013

Superb way to get a guided tour round the city centre and it is FREE. Can't ask for more than that ! Be prepared to put up with a good old rattle though. The trams are antique but really quirky.

“Free ride”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 29, 2013

Can be very crowded as anyone can use this tram but is a convenient way of getting from one place to another as a tourist. Not accessible if you have mobility issues.

“Free way to see the City Center”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 29, 2013

A way to ride around and see the sites for free, and to get your bearings of the city. Though it was very slow, as lots of people got on and off.
